2021 Reading Challenge Sign Ups

It's great to start the year with a clean slate of reading challenges and the giddy anticipation of another awesome year of reading ahead. Today I'm signing up for the following year long challenges in 2021.

This year I'm aiming to complete the Franklin level of the 2021 Australian Women Writer's Challenge

To complete the challenge I'll need to read 10 books and review at least 6 of them in order to be successful. The challenge is run by writers and volunteers and encourages readers to discover more books by Australian women.

Aussie Author Reading Challenge 2021

Hosted by Jo at Booklover Book Reviews, I'm signing up to complete the Emu level of the challenge. I'll need to read and review 24 titles written by Australian Authors, of which at least 10 are female, 10 are male, and at least 10 are new-to-me authors. I'll also need to read from a minimum of 4 genres. Last year I almost didn't achieve the criteria to read 10 books by male Australian authors, so will start early to be more mindful of my selections.
