I did not officially sign up for the Australian Women Writers Challenge in 2016, as I knew that my commitments for the year would sink any well-intentioned plans to write reviews! However, in a year when most of my reading was directed towards research, I did manage to read some wonderful books by Australian women writers, and some of them were featured in my 2, 2 and 2 series for writers with new books.
So here’s my list for 2016 (with links to 2, 2 and 2 interviews where relevant):
All That Is Lost Between Us by Sara Foster (link here)
Wildlight by Robyn Mundy (link here)
The Secret Son by Jenny Ackland (link here)
The Waiting Room by Leah Kaminsky
A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald by Natasha Lester (link here)
The Other Side of the World by Stephanie Bishop
Still Life with Teapot: On Zen, Writing and Creativity by Brigid Lowry
The Historian’s Daughter by Rashida Murphy (link here)
Forgetting Foster by Dianne Touchell (link here)
Hope Farm by Peggy Frew
Extinctions by Josephine Wilson
I already have another pile waiting—and no doubt will be adding to it after the Perth Writers Festival in February—but once again, knowing my limitations, I won’t plan to review in 2017.
If you’re interested in taking part in the 2017 challenge, you can sign up here.
Here’s to another great year of reading!
