#LoveOzYA – Maps
This fortnight’s #LoveOzYA theme is Maps.
I confess, this fortnight’s prompt had me a little stumped. I couldn’t think of any OzYA books that were centred around maps or had really fantastic maps. I thought about road trip books, but instead decided to recreate something a little like Epic Reads’ Planet YA. Unfortunately, my design skills are not what they could be and so instead of a very pretty image, I can only provide a list of books by place and ask you to use your wonderful imaginations.
