Challenges 2023

I successfully completed all of my reading challenges in 2022, but after the Aussie Author Reading Challenge came to an end at the close of 2022, I'll only be participating in 3 reading challenges this year. I'm aiming to read 75 books again in 2023, and will be actively participating in the following challenges throughout the year. Wish me luck!

Hosted by fellow Aussie book blogger Shelleyrae at Book'd Out, I signed up to complete the Nonfiction Nibbler level of the challenge this year.

For this, I will need to read and review 6 books from any 6 listed categories below.
