Vote for Australia’s Top 100 Books for 2019

Vote for Australia’s Top 100 Books for 2019

***Voting Closed***

We returned to work after the break and to a barrage of emails from readers who missed out on voting for the Better Reading Top 100. We know it was a crazy time of year, with the leadup to Christmas and the school holidays. So, we’ve heard you, and will reopen voting for a week.

That’s right… voting is now open again, but only for a week.

Everyone who votes goes into the running to win all 100 books voted onto the list. It’s an incredible prize and of course the very reason so many of you are eager to vote.

To enter, you just need to vote for your all-time favourite adult fiction book. It can be international or local, old or new, classic or debut – it just needs to be the book you love the most. Please note, you may only vote for books that are currently available (in print), and no children’s choices – save those for our next Top 50 Kids’ list!

Another hint: to make your vote count, be sure to write a specific title, not just “Game of Thrones” or another series name, for example.

Once voting has closed, we’ll collate the 100 most-voted-for books, and then seven lucky winners will each receive a pack of all 100 titles.

So vote… you have until Sunday February 2.

                  Ticks all the boxes….
                  Female strength and intelligence and contribution to the narrative of Australian fauna.

                9. Angeline Treacy says:

                  Widow of Ballarat was the first of Darry book that I read, it kept me interested all the way to the end . I am now a devoted “Darry fan ” .

                10. Justine Gill says:

                  My book for 2019 is the fabulous ‘A lifetime of Impossible Days’ by Tabitha Bird. This book is a unique, beautiful told story about a delicate subject. It is told with love, compassion and humour. Cry, laugh and follow Willa aged 8, 33 and 93.

                  Absolutely loved this book. I was gripped from the first page.

                  Loved Wildflower Ridge easy read, descriptive to a tee so much so you could see yourself in the book. Found it hard to put down and can’t wait for Mayas second book.

                13. I loved this series and love your work. ❤️📚

                14. Amanda Cruickshanks says:

                  A Lifetime of Impossible Days is such a beautiful story from a wonderful new author. I can highly recommend this book to anyone.

                  Loved Wildflower Ridge,

                16. Gwendoline Kerr says:

                  I absolutely love Matthew Flinders Cat so much I have actually read it 5 times. I love reading and I read every day. I find this particular book actually helps me when I’m feeling very down.

                17. Corrin says:

                  I’m torn but I think IT ENDS WITH US by Colleen Hoover would have to be my all time favourite

                18. Liza Park says:

                  Such an evocative book, wonderful characters, and a joy to read.

                19. Erin says:

                  I absolutely loved reading “The Secrets We Keep.” The imagery was beautiful and the storylines were captivating.

                20. Sue Peters says:

                  A great read from start to finish, I couldn’t put the book down , can’t wait for the next one

                21. Andrew Brown says:

                  I loved The Heart of the Ritz, by Luke Devenish.
                  It gets my vote! 🙂
                  It was great historical fiction, written with truly moving characters, and an engaging plotline.
                  Strong females lead the story of glamour, occupation, loss and triumph over Nazis. It was very enjoyable, and a satisfying page turner.

                22. I love all of the books from Rebecca Raisin.. The characters in her books are so much fun..

                23. Tracey Gregson says:

                  Absolutely loved this book, she is a great author

                24. Roma meloncelli says:

                  Enjoy Rachael Johns books

                25. Jeanette Findlay says:

                  I just loved the honesty and well written book.

                26. Congratulations, I Love reading your books ❤️📚

                27. Cherry Wilson says:

                  I loved this book. Annie Seaton is a great author and deserves recognition.

                28. Dianne Boadle says:

                  It was hard to choose one particular Australian author as there are so many great ones but the collaborator by Diane Armstrong stands out among them all. It kept me enthralled while turning each page so as to what the story behind the Collaborator was.

                29. I really enjoyed this book because it is set during the Gold Rush era, it was really well written and made me visualise what my neighborhood would have been like in those days.

                30. Michele says:

                  Honestly this is the only book from 2019 I read.
                  It was fantastic, thought it was true story, so well written. Once I finished I searched for group and found it was fiction. Well done.

                31. Michele verey says:

                32. Lee-Anne says:

                  This a beautifully crafted story of relationships within a marriage and with friends. Sacrifice made for men’s careers and facing mortality. But the writing of landscape and nature scapes is utterly sublime and you could probably just appreciate passages from this novel without reading the whole – but I would recommend you read it all 🙂

                33. dan o'hara says:

                  Tim Ayliffe second book ‘State of Fear’is another amazing read. Watch this space……we will be talking about Tim Ayliffe in the same breath as the likes of Tom Clancy, Patricia Cornwell, Michael Connelly and Martina Cole.

                34. I love Annie Seaton’s books she has such wonderful stories to tell.

                35. Suzanne McGregor says:

                  I loved The Lost Man, set in the outback,it’s tense, mysterious, dark, suspenseful, a page turner with real atmosphere.

                36. Steffi O'Brien says:

                  Rachael Johns’ “Just One Wish” – 3 Generations of Australian women beginning with Alice, a trailblazer for women in the ’60s, and how her unconventional lifestyle impacts on her daughter and grand daughter. Could not stop reading it.

                37. I always find it so hard to choose just one book, but The Chocolate Maker’s Wife intrigued me from beginning to end. I also loved Hannah Kent’s Burial Rites, pity we can only choose one…

                38. Giselle Brame says:

                  Loved her first book and now also her second book was even better.Both were very easy to read, unable to put both books down. Brought back many memories . Looking forward to her next book.

                39. Lizzie Stubbings says:

                  Bryce Courtenay’s The Power of One
