Australian Women Writers 2013- Challenge Complete!

I forgot to mention that last year I achieved my goal of reading and reviewing at least 10 books by Australian Women Writers as part of the challenge of the same name.  This is such a great cause!  Women writers in Australia are so fantastic and anyone who avoids them purely due to their gender is missing out- I hate the assumption that because a writer is female their work will be less literary or substantial.  It was great to see that this year a woman won the Miles Franklin award (Michelle de Kretser) and a woman won the Man Booker (Eleanor Catton).  The inaugural Stella Prize was also a very exciting event!

This year I am participating again and I aim to read and review at least ten books by Australian women.
