A Potential Aussies Rule TBR for 2020

Hi folks!

I thought I would give an outline for a few of the books I’m planning on reading for the Aussies Rule Challenge next year.

1. An Aussie book by a trans or non binary author.

I was excited to see this work of fiction by Paige Wilcox come out this year, and I haven’t had a chance to read it yet.

4. A non fiction book by an Aussie author of colour.

Maxine Beneba Clarke is an auto-buy author for me. Her work is amazing and I’m sure this will be no exception.

5. One of the Growing Up in Australia series.

I have the Growing Up African, Asian and Queer books on my shelf, so I’m hoping to get to all of them. Also Growing Up Disabled edited by Carly Findlay will be coming up in 2020 so I will hopefully get to that one as well.

6. An Aussie romance.

I don’t read a lot of romance, but Dr Anita Heiss has a couple that I will gladly give a try.

8. A Book by a refugee.

I’m possibly the only person in Australia who hasn’t read this yet. If not this, I might read his new Wolf Girl books because they look rad.

11. A book about being Muslim in Australia.

Of course you can read either fiction or non fiction for this challenge. Arab, Australian, Other came out this year and looks great. I’ve read a couple of Rwanda Abdul-Fattah’s books this year and just love her work.

12. Some Aussie YA spec fic.

I pre ordered this book and I have not read it yet. It will be a good answer for this question!

That’s about as far as I have gotten so far. I’m terrible at planning TBRs – it’s a sure way to make sure I read nothing on the list. Have you started planning your TBRs for your 2020 challenges yet? What’s on your list?



  1. “I’m terrible at planning TBRs – it’s a sure way to make sure I read nothing on the list.”

    WHY ARE YOU ME!?!?! This is exactly my problem. Soon as I sai “Next I will read….” is 9 out of 10 times the surest way to prevent me from reading that book!

    Anyway, this list looks excellent and I’ve only heard of one of these books!
