Challenges 2024

I successfully completed two reading challenges in 2023 and read a total of 76 books throughout the year. This year I'm aiming to read 75 books again and will be actively participating in the following two reading challenges along the way. In the past I've participated in as many as five reading challenges, but given I'm only participating in two this year, I've decided to increase the difficulty in terms of challenge levels. Sound fun? Come and join me!

Hosted by fellow Aussie book blogger Shelleyrae at Book'd Out, I've signed up for the highest level of the challenge this year to complete the Nonfiction Nosher level. For this, I will need to read and review 12 books, one book for each category in the list below.
