May 2022 Reading Round-Up

In May, I managed to read 26 books. All were review books, and most were Australian, and twenty-three were  by women. I have almost completed all my chosen challenges – with one category in the Dymocks Reading Challenge and one in the QBD Reading Challenge left. Some reviews are scheduled for June and July as well, as I have been able to get ahead and on top of my review books so far this year, with only one or two yet to go up due to late arrivals, and they will be up within the next week with any luck. I’ve read a diverse range of books, showing that there is so much talent and so many stories to tell, that I hope everyone can find a book they will like. With so many choices, I can’t possibly read everything so I aim to read what I can and be as diverse in my choices as possible.
