Ooh, I love a challenge…
Especially when that challenge started in January and lasts until 31st December and here I am on the 10th December signing up.
Hell yes I’ll read 10 books by Aussie Ladies and review 6 of them in 20 days! Pfft, why don’t you set me a REAL challenge?!
I could go on like this for hours, or I could just tell you which books I’ve read and write the reviews and make you think that I have super mad reading skillz (yes, in this context, ‘skillz’ must always be spelled this way), when really, this year I’ve already read 8 books by lovely Australian writer chicks totally independently to this challenge. I had my own, ‘let’s read loads of books by writers who live in WA’ type mission this year, which really started completely by accident and then just snowballed.
The second part of the challenge is writing reviews – I am AWFUL at writing reviews. I tend just to say ‘oh my god I loved this book’ whilst clutching it to my chest and sobbing; but I would like to be better. I think that if I can identify what makes me love books, then analyse this and put it into words, it will make me a much better writer.
So here I go, wish me luck!
