Challenge Completion

As usual, my reading and review publication far exceeded the goals I set for myself – Kangaroo Level (12) of the Aussie Author Challenge 2016 and the Miles Level (6) of the 2016 Australian Women Writers Challenge.

Of the 25 titles reviewed, 13 were by female authors and 15 from authors whose work I’d not previously read.

Challenge Commitment

I’m sticking with the Kangaroo (12) and Miles (6) reading goals for the Aussie Author Challenge 2017 and 2017 Australian Women Writers Challenge respectively.

And while I prefer to let my reading ‘take me where I wander’ during the year rather than making a reading list up front, here are just a few of the titles by Aussie Authors I am hoping to find time to read in 2017 :

Which of these titles by Aussie Authors have you also enjoyed, or are looking forward to in 2017?
