Australian Women Writer’s Challenge 2013 (AWW2013) Update

At the end of last year I decided to commit myself to the Australian Women Writer’s Challenge for 2013. I loved the premise of the challenge, and thought that it was the perfect way to experience a wider range of writing and hopefully sample a variety of new-to-me authors. I signed up at Franklin Level, which meant I had to read ten books written by Australian Women Writer’s and review at least six. I am happy to announce today that I have well and truly beat that number already and plan to continue doing so throughout the rest of the year.

To date, I have read a grand total of Forty-two books (42) and of those thirty-three (33) were by Female Australian Writers. I’m currently reading (and almost finished) books thirty-four (34) and thirty-five (35). My reviewing has fallen behind as of late due to personal reasons and work commitments, however I have so far sixteen (16) books for this challenge with the intention and aim to review at least fifty (50) for the challenge in total. The remaining books read so far have reviews in various stages of writing and editing and should be posted soon.
