Australian Women Writers ChallengePosted: December 30, 2013 Filed under: On Books | Tags: AWW Leave a comment
As well as my Goodreads 2014 challenge, designed to keep me reading regularly, despite all the other stuff going on in my life, I decided to sign up for the 2014 Australian Women Writers Challenge. Here’s the blurb from their site.
The 2014 Australian Women Writers Challenge was set up to help overcome gender bias in the reviewing of books by Australian women. The challenge encourages avid readers and book bloggers, male and female, Australian and non-Australian, to read and review books by Australian women throughout the year. You don’t have to be a writer to sign up. You can choose to read and review, or read only.
I’m aiming for the “Miles” level of achievement for 2014: to either read six or review four books written by Australian female writers.
For the record, I didn’t do the challenge this year, but if I had I would have read six:
- “Fall for Me” and “Sacrifice” by K. A. Last
- “Kiya: Mother of the Pharaoh” by Katie Hamstead
- “Silver Tides” by Susan Fodor
- “Finding Home” by Lauren McKellar
- “Shadows” by Paula Weston
