A new year brings with it new reading challenges. Some people set challenges for themselves, and others follow challenges set by bookstores and libraries. We've noticed a couple of cross-overs between reading challenges, so if you'd like to sprinkle some WA YA into your reading habits, we've got some recommendations for you!
Start/First of a series
A book with a beautiful cover/You bought for the cover
The History of Mischief by Rebecca Higgie and Hive by A.J. Betts both feature stunning covers. As for 90 Packets of Instant Noodles by Deb Fitzpatrick... Come on, aren't you the least bit curious about what it means?

A book by a First Nations author
The Ubby's Underdogs series and My Place by Sally Morgan are both written by First Nations authors. Ubby's Underdogs are graphic novels, so if that's a challenge criteria for you, these books are perfect for that, too!
A book published in 2021
A book published in 2022
Evacuation Road by H.M. Waugh is an adventure you won't be able to put down, and while The Misadventures of an Amateur Naturalist technically features Celeste's misadventures, you're still in for a wild ride.
Good luck with your reading for 2022, and we hope you enjoy some of these amazing WA stories!
