For the third year in a row, I am taking part in the Australian Women Writers Challenge. Each of the two years I’ve participated I’ve been able to read over 100 books for the challenge, so I’m hoping to do the same in 2014.
For the second year in a row I am also taking part in the Aussie Author Challenge, hosted by Jo over at Booklover Book Reviews. Like last year, I am modifying this challenge slightly – I aim to read at least 12 books by Australian male writers, some of which are new to me, at least 2 titles which are non-fiction and at least 3 titles which are published in 2013 or 2014. Last year I managed to read more than the 12 I challenged myself to so I’d like to attempt that again in 2014.I’m contiuing the Literary Exploration challenge – last year I began the Insane level which requires reading one book from each of the following genres and sub-genres:
Adventure Auto-Biography/Biography Chick-Lit
- Childrens Book
Graphic Novels Gothic Hard-Boiled Historical Fiction
Humour Literary Fiction Magical Realism Mystery
Non Fiction Paranormal
Poetry Post-Apocalyptic Romance
- Science Fiction
True Crime Urban Fantasy
I only got halfway through in 2013 and so now I aim to finish it in 2014.
I will be continuing my participation in The Classics Club challenge, aiming to read 50 classics in 5 years. I’m hoping to read 12 classics at least in 2014, one a month. I am hopelessly behind on this challenge, I readily admit that, but I see any progress at all as good progress!
