I love books and since I started this blog I had not the chance to post about what I’ve been reading. When I found out about the Australian Women Writers Challenge, I thought this was a great opportunity to discover new writers and share with you about them and their work.
In a few words the Australian Women Writers Challenge was set up in 2012 to promote women writers in Australia after a study discovered that male authors are more likely to have their books reviewed in mainstream media.
I’m taking up the challenge level Stella which is read four books and review three on my blog. Perhaps, I will read more than four books this year but I want to give myself an achievable goal I’m sure I will be able to reach.
I chose different categories of books and I can all find them at my local library excluding the first one which I bought back in November last year as an eBook:
1- Rules are for breaking by Imelda Evans. Imelda says “I write fun fiction about fabulous women (and the men they get mixed up with).” You can have a look at Imelda’s blog here.
2- Vinyl Inside by Rachel Matthews. Rachel was my teacher when I did my writing course last winter at RMIT and, since I finished my class, I really want to read her book. The setup is a caravan park near Shepparton in the 80’s.
3- California PI by Rachel Sommerville. This is a non-fiction. Rachel is an Australian private investigator who described in this book her experience with working with people on the death row in the United States.
4- Bitter Greens by Kate Forsyth. I stumbled across the website of Kate yesterday night when I was looking for my last novel to read to complete my selection.
I’m really looking forward to start to read and share my thoughts with you.
Are you doing the Australian Women Writers Challenge?
