At the beginning of the year I signed up to the Australian Women Writers Challenge – Miles Level. I was to read six books written by Australian women and review four. I reviewed all of them and the links to each review are as follows:
Already Dead by Jaye Ford: A wonderful suspense/crime thriller where a carjacking leads to even more questions for victim. 5 Stars
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty: The humour in this book doesn’t detract from the serious message that underlies it. I finished this book within a day or so of opening it, needing to know what happened next. There were some great misdirections and twists. 5 Stars
Fall for Me by K.A. Last: A fun Young Adult Novel about angels and vampires in an Australian setting. 3.5 Stars
The Tailor’s Girl by Fiona McIntosh: The characters in this book were so fantastic, I think I fell in love with most of them, with the exception of one. My heart broke many, many times and I couldn’t put The Tailor’s Girl down until the end. 5 Stars
Wild Wood by Posie Graeme-Evans: Two different timelines — Fourteenth centry and modern — with multiple points of view. Romance and paranormal elements. Fun read. 4 Stars
Star Promise by G.J. Walker Smith: The last book in a young adult series. I loved Adam and Charli’s story and this was the perfect ending. Must read. 4.5 Stars.
I can honestly say that Aussie women know how to write and write well. I wasn’t disappointed in this challenge and I will most definitely be signing up to do it again next year. I’ll see if I can do even better. To all you Aussie authors (male and female) keep writing. I love your work 🙂
