March 2022 Reading Round-up

In March I read twenty-one books. Most of them were Australian books, and mostly Australian women. Some are not out yet (at date of posting this), and three were quiz books, so I haven’t reviewed those. I have almost finished my Dymocks and QBD reading challenges. Even though I am well past my level for the Australian Author Reading Challenge, I still need to write that wrap up post – things have just been busy with reading and work, so hopefully I can put that together soon, and add the link to my others.

In general, this year I’ve mostly been reading books by women between reviewing, work, and my own reading, and have been delving into lots of picture books as well lately. I’m hoping to continue reading at least twenty books a month throughout the year, and can also say that as I write this, I am up to date as much as I can be with my review books and my goal is to keep on top of them as much as possible throughout the rest of the year.
