February 2021 Round-up

February’s reading leaped considerably to thirty books read that month for blogging and blog tours, and a couple that I read for myself. I’m yet to start back working as a quiz writer, but I also review for Scholastic, so several of these books were for that. Most were by Australian authors, and about 27 were by women writers in various genres and for various audiences. Some reviews are yet to go live, whilst others are ready to go, and can be read right now.

I’ve also included my challenge progress numbers – some are filling faster than others, but I am sure that the rest will fall into place through the remainder of the year. I’ve got some good books coming up, and hope to have a bumper year and upcoming month of some good Australian books, especially in the children’s and young adult market.
