Within the challenge, there are four levels. The first three are named after prominent Australian Women Writers who have had an impact on Australian writing. They are:
- Stella: read 4 – if reviewing, review at least 3
- Miles: read 6 – if reviewing, review at least 4
- Franklin: read 10 – if reviewing, review at least 6
- Create your own challenge: nominate your own goal e.g. “Classics Challenge”.
As this is my first year, and I read across a broad range of genres, I have decided to go with the Stella level.
So far, I have decided to read:
The Good People by Hannah Kent (I thoroughly enjoyed Burial Rites)
The Lake House by Kate Morton, and
Nine Parts of Desire by Geraldine Brooks (non-fiction)
I'll post on Goodreads with the hashtag #aww2017 as I complete the challenge, and add occasional reviews here. I'd love to know what Aussie women writers you're reading, and when you find a great book to share.
Until next time!
