The Australian Women Writers Challenge 2017: 20 Books in 16 Weeks

Last year, I participated in a reading challenge titled:

The Australian Women Writers Challenge 

The idea of the challenge is to read a nominated amount of books written by Australian women and to then review and share those reviews with the #aww2016 across your social media platforms. There is also a database on the AWW Blog where you can link to your reviews so other readers can search for new books and reviews from a central location. I read and reviewed 20 books last year for the challenge.

This year, I am not only a participant in the challenge, but I have also joined the team as Historical Fiction Editor. I’m enjoying this role immensely, this enthusiasm translating into a voracious amount of reading that has seen me meet last year’s number of books in only 16 weeks. My #aww2017 is getting a real workout and I thought this milestone a good time to pause and take a look back at what I’ve read so far this year.
