2018 New Release Challenge Sign-up and Tracking List

Last year I reviewed 54 titles, and many of them were 2017 releases. So this year, in addition to my Aussie Author Challenge 2018 and the complementary 2018 Australian Women Writers Challenge, I am signing up the 2018 New Release Challenge.

The 2018 New Release Challenge is hosted by Lexxie @ (un)Conventional Bookviews. There are 5 challenge levels:

1-30 books per year – New Release Newbie
31-60 books per year – New Release Pro
61-100 books per year – New Release Veteran
101-200 books per year – New Release Enthusiast
200+ books per year – New Release Obsessed

I will be targeting, and I expect just scrapping into the New Release Pro category. I’ll be adding links to my reviews of 2018 book releases to this list throughout the year.
