March 2021 Round Up

In March 2021, I managed to read 21 books, despite being away for the first ten days of the month for a wedding. Most were by Australian authors – 17 out of 21, and 14 were by Australian Women. I also completed my Aussie Author Challenge this month, and decided to extend to the final level – and I only have 4 or 5 books to go for that one, so once I’ve finished that, I will keep contributing to the review log throughout the year as well as adding to my other challenges.

Some categories are yet to be filled in Dymocks, Modern Mrs Darcy and QBD – as I have to find the books or get around to reading them. Some of them I have an idea of what to read and hope to get to them soon. Several categories have had some crossover with books or had multiple books. And I am giving myself permission to double up if necessary if I am struggling to finish.

Now, onto April and lots more reading to catch up on!

Modern Mrs Darcy – 13/14

Australian Authors Challenge – 19/24

AWW2021 – 44/50
