It was great to complete all five of my reading challenges in 2015 (a personal record) and you can see my success hereTo keep it a little simpler this year, I plan to participate in just three reading challenges as follows:
  • 2016 Australian Women Writers Challenge - completed
  • Aussie Author Challenge 2016 - completed
  • Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2016 - finished but didn't complete
