AWW 2016 Final Update

AWW16Let’s take a moment to thank Past Amy for actually kind of keeping on top of this before her world crumbled and the big bad men stole her internet, her free time, and made her work all the time.

With that done, I am rather proud of myself for participating in this finally. I loved it. I made an effort to read more Aussie women books this year even without this challenge, and through chance and circumstance I discovered some great books by Aussies this year so it’s great this challenge was here to share them with you all. While I haven’t been able to review as many as I planned due to having no internet in the house for two months, and having a lot of personal and work commitments, I have read more. I will be getting reviews up for them though eventually I just have run out of time. I have included a complete list of all books read below, review links included and I am certainly looking forward to doing this again next year, with total success!

    Congratulations, Amy! What a great effort, especially given the connectivity hassles and your extra workload. Looking forward to more in 2017.
