AWW Reading Challenge – I’ve signed up for 2015!

This will be my third year participating in the Australian Women Writer’s reading challenge. It is such a good idea to highlight our many talented writers, and looking back over my AWW list for 2014 I have read titles that are absolute jewels and I would recommend these books to anyone. One of the great aspects, that I appreciate about this challenge, is the ongoing communication via social media. I love seeing what others are reading, I am always fascinated to read the reviews of a book that I have also read – just to see what others think about it, and best of all, I am reminded about books that I have meant to read but then forgotten about. I can then promptly put them back on my to-read list! Listed below are my reads for 2014. If you have not read some of these titles yet, please do! My only regret is that I did not take the time to review any of these book except for “All the birds singing” by Evie Wyld, but I became so caught up in devouring the books I couldn’t stop to write about them. I will make sure that I do post more reflections this year.
