September 2020 Wrap up

In September, I read 23 books -ten were by Australian women, one checked off another box in Books and Bites Bingo and reviewed all books on this list. I’m slowly moving through my challenges, getting to some categories that are a bit more of a challenge, in finding the books to fit them. This month, in particularly the end of the month, saw a surge in published books. There were so many, the 29th was known in the book and publishing world as Super Tuesday, and I was able to read and review seven of those books – there were too many to read them all, and not all of them appealed to me.

So as we head into the last three months of 2020, I hope to be able to fill everything else in as well as stay on top of my review books.
