Australian Women Writer’s Challenge 2016 (AWW2016): Update 12 (December) Complete!

This year I challenged myself to read 50 books written by Australian Women Writers and review at least 40 of them and I’m ecstatic to say that I made it!

While I personally would have preferred to have reviewed more of the books I’ve read this year, I am happy with the result and will still aim to review every single one I read this year. The most common reason a book didn’t get reviewed was time constraints (and leaving too long in between the book and the review) and a big reason this year was that I read some extremely astounding books that I simply couldn’t review without giving away the plot or writing a 4000 word essay on why I loved it so much (I’m thinking specifically but not solely at C.S.Pacat here).
