August Round-Up 2021

August saw most of Australia back in lockdown due to the Delta variant of COVID, so it was a great month to get on top of my reading as much as I could. Between books for work and review, I read 29 books, and reviewed most of them. Again, most were by Australian authors, with lots of kids books read as well. I’m still working through many books from my August pile, and hope to be on top of them soon. I’ve almost completed all my challenges – two books to go and one challenge completed post to write!

Total stats so far:

Modern Mrs Darcy – 14/14

Australian Authors Challenge – 24/24 (73)

AWW2021 – 114/150

Dymocks Reading Challenge – 25/26
