To view ANZLL schedules from previous years, and our ratings, click the links, or view the alphabetical list below

Please note that the rating may refer in part to the quality of the discussion rather than the merits or otherwise of the book.

Please also note that ANZLL includes non-fiction and an international choice in the schedule for most years, and so not all titles fit our criteria for ‘Australian literary fiction’ (see About ANZ LitLovers for our definition).

Anything dated after mid 2008 has been reviewed on this blog and can be found using the author’s name under the category Who To Find Here.
