2024 Better Reading Top 100: Aussie Authors Continue to Dominate Our List!

2024 Better Reading Top 100: Aussie Authors Continue to Dominate Our List!

The Better Reading 2024 Top 100 is out now and it’s clear – with 54% of the books on the list written by Australian authors – you all love to read Australian books!

The top spot in the 2024 Better Reading Top 100 is Lola in the Mirror by Aussie author Trent Dalton! Dalton has also made Top 100 history as the first author to have two books in the Top 5, with Boy Swallows Universe at #4.

It’s clear that while Australians now hold Boy Swallows Universe close to their hearts, they’re equally in love with the magical, heartbreaking and wholly beautiful Lola in the Mirror. This profoundly moving novel has guaranteed its status as a future classic.

Better Reading Director Cheryl Akle states: “The Top 100 list continues to provide an unparalleled insight into the Australian book industry. For the past few years, it has been a celebration of female authors, and a reminder of how loved Australian authors are. This shift first took place in 2017 and shows no sign of changing. The 2024 list is stronger than ever, with more local voices, with authors such as Trent Dalton, Jane Harper, Liane Moriarty, Chris Hammer and Pip Williams each featuring multiple titles on the list.”

Australian literature has come a long way, both at home and abroad. Thanks to a whole new wave of wonderful Australian writing, Australia has become a literary powerhouse, giving us a great deal to be proud of – and to celebrate.

                        I’ve been exploring a lot of new sites lately, and one that has really stood out to me is this one I stumbled upon. I must admit, I’m quite smitten with it! Its design is user-friendly and elegant, striking a fantastic balance between practicality and simplicity. The site in question is https://abigcandy1.com/. The level of detail is truly impressive, and it’s clear that a lot of thought has been put into its design. I’ve incorporated it into my daily browsing routine and it has made a significant difference. Honestly, it’s one of those sites that you need to experience for yourself to understand its impact. Go ahead and give it a try, you won’t regret it!
