AWW 2018 August Update

In a small miracle I’ve managed to exceed my 25 book goal. I lapsed a tad in my Aussie books, especially the women, after my first update so I haven’t exceeded it by much, but I will take these small victories. I hope to try a bit harder for the next update and focus a bit more on the Aussie books and try and see how many I can read before my next update. I got too caught up in all the other books I found, the problem is there’s so many good ones that come across my path I get lured into their delightfulness. Another miracle is that all of these books have reviews coming and I will update this post with links when they go live.

AWW 2018: March Update

Three months into the 2018 AWW challenge and I’m feeling cautiously optimistic. I have been hoping to beat my record last year and I think I will certainly beat the 25 by the end of the year, even if I don’t keep the pace I’m at now. As usual, it’s the reviews that need to be done more than the reading but I’ll get there. I read a lot of junior fiction, I found a great little series called Our Australian Girls which has four books about different girls in different Australian eras. I also read a few new releases in YA and non-fiction which were rather good as well. I’m looking forward to what else I discover through the year.
