On Top Down Under Turns 6: Schedule of Events


On October 6, 2018, On Top Down Under Book Reviews celebrates its 6th anniversary. In 2012, two total strangers – from opposite sides of the world – came together over the shared love of a book, Garnetville by E.M. Mispiel. First, a friendship was born, then, On Top Down Under. During the past six years, hundreds of books, maybe more, have been read and reviewed. We’ve discovered new authors and have continued enjoying old favourites. Not only has the site grown, but so has the friendship and we continue to be as close as family.

A huge thank you to our followers and subscribers. Without your support we’re sure On Top Down Under Book Reviews would not be going strong 6 years on.

A big thanks to the authors taking the time to be a part of our Blog-Versary because you help us make it fun and interesting and meaningful. Also, a thanks to those writers who truly appreciate the time taken to rate a book and write a review as well – no matter the size, who writes them, or where.

As we always do during our Blog-Versary, we’re celebrating throughout the entire month of October with author posts, general posts, excerpts and giveaways. Below is a current schedule of events with author/ guest name, date and, as it occurs, a link to the post. There may be a change here and there.

We hope you’ll celebrate our anniversary with us and everyone taking part. All things being equal, we look forward to more years of book reviews ~Kazza and Cindi

Happy #6 to my fave blog. I’ve been a slacker reviewing for only a couple of years. Don’t know how you’ve done it for 6. Take a bow and congrats! Will I send beer, wine or spirits? 😉


I have been following OTDU virtually since it’s beginning. I have always been impressed with the work you guys put into your blog. Your reviews are comprehensive and honest. Every time you have reviewed a book that has grabbed my interest and I have read the book, I have never been disappointed. The books have been exactly as you have described, I honestly can’t think of an occasion when this has not been true. Thanks for all your hard work that helps to take the guess work out of should I or shouldn’t I get this book. I hope you… Read more »
