Australian Women Writers Challenge Update
I think this is the second year I have participated in the challenge, and I have definitely been slower off the rank this year than I was last year. While the majority of the books I read are by women, as my Honours project (on Western Australian Creative Writing) fades into the background, my interests have begun to take me to places I can only imagine; places like Nigeria and Mexico. Every time I do sit down to read a book by an Australian woman, I am reminded of why I love this country... more specifically, why I love the interior landscape of it's literature. More so than with any other body of literature, I feel like Australian literature is talking to me.
It's not too late to sign up for the challenge if you were thinking of doing so. In the meantime, here's a list of links to all the books I have reviewed for the challenge so far.
Let Her Go by Dawn Barker
Lost and Found by Brooke Davis
Cicada by Moira McKinnon
Mr Wigg by Inga Simpson
