Thanks to @lola.and.puki for their pink book stack fundraising initiative to raise funds and awareness during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please see their post below for details on the campaign. As a “pink book” author it is my privilege to help in anyway I can. 💖Also a huge shout out to Footscray Library who allowed me to pull all the pink books off their shelves (sorry I tried to put them back…😬) Please see below and get involved, we have 12 days left to turn Instagram pink 💖Posted @withrepost • @lola.and.puki 🎀 It’s The #bookishladiesclub here with an exciting announcement about our #pinkbooks4boobs challenge and fundraiser! 🎀⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ 💕The amazing author of The Nancys @rwrmcdonald reached out to us to say he’s going to match our donations dollar for dollar and donate it to the Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation. We are overjoyed with his generosity and have decided to up our donations to $300 meaning $600 is going to be donated to breast cancer research⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ 🎉 We are challenging all of you now to go out and make a donation to your local breast cancer foundation too! 💕⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ 💝We are so appreciative of everyone who has participated in stacking pink so far this month! However, October isn’t over yet and we want to keep seeing your pink stacks to bring awareness to this important cause. Breast cancer affects both men and women so it’s very important to spread the word and make sure you and your loved ones get yearly check ups as well as doing self checks at home. 💝⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Let’s finish this month strong and keep turning #Bookstagram pink! #pinkbooks4boobs💕⁣⁣⁣ :⁣⁣⁣ :⁣⁣⁣ :⁣⁣⁣ :⁣⁣⁣ :⁣⁣⁣ :⁣⁣⁣ :⁣⁣⁣ :⁣⁣⁣ #pinkspines2019 #booksharks #shelfie #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerawarenessmonth #thenancys #rwrmcdonald #pinkbooks #bookflatlay #bookchallenge #booksaremylife #fortheloveofbooks #bookish #booklove #bookwormsunite #bibliophile #aussiereaders #cancersucks #bookaddiction #readersofinstagram #IGbooks #booksbooksbooks #bookclub #bookphotography #bookaesthetics #booklover

🙏🙏🙏🥰💖Posted @withrepost • @antipodeanbookclub Tippy Chan is 11 years old and living in small town New Zealand with her Mum. She’s inherited a love of Nancy Drew from her Uncle Pike who escaped from Riverstone to Sydney as soon as he could leave home. When Tippy’s Mum goes on a cruise, Uncle Pike and his partner Devon come and look after Tippy, bringing laughter, colour and sparkle into Tippy’s life at a time when she’s coming to terms with losing her Dad. They form The Nancys when Tippy’s teacher is found murdered next to Riverstone’s only traffic light. This is a delightful, entertaining story told through Tippy’s voice about loss, forgiveness and building your own family. As you can tell, I can completely relate to Tippy and Uncle Pike’s love of Nancy Drew! #thenancys #allenandunwin #rwrmcdonald #nancydrew #vintagebooks #bookcover #bookcoverdesign #coverlove #pinkbooks #beautifulbooks #bookobsessed #literaturelover #booksbooksbooks #nowreading #ilovereading #bookstoread #bibliophile #literaryfiction #booknerdigans #bookworms #bookishlove #bookishfeatures #bookstagrammers #bookishgirl #bookreview #bookreviewer #bookrecommendation #igreaders #antipodeanbookclub

Excited to be part of The Wheeler Centre’s The Next Big Thing – Heartbeat Edition sharing the stage with excellent writers @ninakenwood , Yamiko Marama and @tiiakel 23rd September 6:15pm at The Moat. Details and link below – hope to see you there 💖💖💖💖💖 Our thumping hearts can’t be – won’t be – stilled at the Heartbeat Edition of Next Big Thing, when we hear from some great new writers whose work is concerned with racing pulses, high stakes, young love and coming of age. Nina Kenwood’s YA novel It Sounded Better in My Head is a tender exploration of first love, friendship and all the horrifying awkwardness of navigating young adulthood. Rob McDonald’s The Nancys is a darkly funny novel about an unlikely uncle-niece detective team. Yamiko Marama’s essay, ‘The Equality of Love’ (published in Growing Up Queer in Australia) reflects on a blossoming relationship and the impact of the same-sex marriage survey. And Tiia Kelly’s essay comes from the upcoming edition of Voiceworks (#116 Pluto). Readings will be our bookseller for this event. https://www.wheelercentre.com/events/heartbeat-edition

Posted @withrepost • 🙏🙏🙏🙏🥰🥰💖 Thank you so much for your review and I ❤️ the photo! The Nancys scrapbook with clues is genius! (the murderer, cat and the bridge is my favourite – Devon would be so proud!👏👏👏😍) @laura_loves_literature Terrible photo, great book! This treasure took me back and reminded me of all the fantastic detective books I used to read when I was younger. It was equal parts hilarious (Uncle Pike and Devon have a special spot in my heart), moving (I feel ya Tippy Chan), and nail-biting. Witty and clever, @rwrmcdonald has written an exquisite debut and I urge you all to add it to your TBR. . . . #bookstagram #books #thenancys #rwrmcdonald #nancydrew #everyonesasuspect #bookish #bookstoread #tbr #currentread #lauralovesliterature
