  • #currentlyreading When Michael Met Mina
..
Sticking to the theme of refugees in Australia, as I am currently reading They Cannot Take the Sky and also recently read The Bone Sparrow

This is YA fiction about Michael, whose parents run the political party called 'Aussie Values', and Mina, who fled Afghanistan with her mother and arrived in Australia by boat.
..
This has some pretty confronting characters but I'm sure is not actually far from reality for many in Australia.

Q1: Bookish confession. I haven't read a Jane Austen novel that I've enjoyed yet! 😳 I will continue though!
..
Q2: Author you think is underrated. Georgia Blain who wrote Between a Wolf and a Dog which is still one of the best books I've read this year and I want more people to read it!
..
Q3: Do you write at all? Only academically and scientifically for the past 10+ years but I started my blog so I could do more creative writing. I've always wanted to write a novel and am starting to make a little progress 😊
..
Q4: Read any good nonfiction recently? Yes - The Gender Games by Juno Dawson. Amazing!
..
