Dymocks 2022 Reading Challenge Wrap Up

It took me six months to complete this challenge – I found nearly all of the categories easy to fill. The only one I had to search for on lists was the BookTok one, as I found many of the ones on the list were not always what I wanted to read, a genre I read, or that I had, So it gave me the chance to re-read Circe, though I had hoped that I could fill as many or all of the categories with Australian authors that I enjoy and had. I find that when I read something I don’t like, I am less likely to finish it or I will drag myself through it so I can finish it – and to me that takes the enjoyment out of my reading. But I made it in the end, and had fun doing it.
