I can honestly say I never have a shortage of books to chose from when I’m ready to start something new – I feel like I have the world’s tallest tbr, and with Aurealis Awards entries coming in, and all the new Christmas reads being released, it just keeps growing. What is tricky, though, is choosing which of those many books to read next.
Last week I decided to put that decision out of my hands, and into those of my Instagram friends! I narrowed it down to two books I have on my tbr for October and popped up a poll. Let me tell you a bit about the books…
Lakesedge by Lyndall Clipstone is one of the books on our Aurealis Awards entry list. I’ve been hearing great things about it, so I’m excited to have an excuse to prioritise it!
Green Rising is Lauren James’ brand new novel, coming out on 6 October ffrom Walker books. I adored James’ last novel – The Reckless Afterlife of Harriet Stoker (you can see my review here) and I’ve been looking forward to this one since it was announced. This is also the book for the WBA YA book this month (I had so much fun at the September book club, so I’m super keen to join in again!).
The winner of the poll was Lakesedge, by a fairly narrow margin of 56% to 44%, so I’ll be starting that one this week! Keep an eye out for my review soon!
