I’ve signed up for this year’s Australian Women Writers Challenge and committed to reading 12 books by, yes you guessed it, 12 Australian Women Writers. In keeping with my passion, I’ll be reviewing 12 romance novels, both contemporary and historical as well as a couple of other sub-genres.
I’m probably preaching to the converted here, but in case you’re not familiar with the romance genre, remember that these are books written by women, about women, for women. It’s a feminist genre and a happy, feel-good one, providing a lovely counter-balance to the sand depressing news which dominates our airwaves.
My policy is to only review books I have enjoyed. Time, space and life are too short to devote time and energy to reviewing books I didn’t like. My aim is to share the books and authors I love in the hope of introducing a new reader to them. Some reviews will be of the paperback edition of a book, some the ebook and some the audiobook. I’m an all formats kind of gal, and I am continually surprised – in a good way – by how the format changes the reading experience
I am also hoping to find some new authors for myself through the other reviewers participating in the Challenge.
Whatever your reading passion, I wish you a year filled with good books.
