Well here is an article I found, written by a blog called Little Morning Fox. It is about morning pages, which I also do every morning too, so it is great to read about other people doing it and how they do it too.

17 Aussie YA Books Everyone Should Read At Least Once

Hey guys,

This article came out a few weeks ago from Buzzfeed and I wanted to share it with you all because I love sharing bookish information with you all and wanted to let you see it.

Here is a list of Aussie Young Adult books which we are all apparently meant to read at least once.

https://www.buzzfeed.com/jennaguillaume/loveozya?utm_term=.yoxLmm1yw7#.lwxqXXarNy

I am going to be completely honest with you. I haven’t read any of these young adult books that are mentioned on this list. I own a couple of them, my sister has read a few of them, but I myself have not read any of them. I know about most of them, but with such a big TBR as is, I can’t really get around to all of the Aussie Young Adult books.

Have you read any of these books? Do you own any of these books?

Let me know what you think.
