My Reading Life: #aww2017 Wrap Up


Last year, my participation in the Australian Women Writers Challenge stepped up a notch as I took on a few volunteer roles behind the scenes. My passion for supporting the women writers of Australia has culminated in a whopping 74 of my reviews being contributed to the AWW database, my highest total ever. I did in fact read an additional three titles to what’s listed here, but these books weren’t due for publication until the new year and as I was bound by agreements with the publishers to hold off on revealing these reviews, they have instead given my #aww2018 challenge a jump start.

  3. Impressive list! I’m getting slowly into this year, with 2 or 3 read and reviewed already, or with the reviews scheduled. I’m hoping this year I can knock off as many challenge categories and bingo squares with #AWW2018 reads as possible. So far, there are two in the book bingo that I have been able to do this for. I’m aiming for a different book per category.
