59176 My 10th book for #aww2017, The Permanent Resident by Roanna Gonsalves. In this collection of well-written and witty stories, Gonsalves casts a forensic eye over human pretensions and aspirations. The stories feature a range of characters, both Indian- and Australian-born, and few come out unscathed.

59176 Ninth book for #aww2017, The Convict's Daughter: The Scandal that Shocked a Colony by Kiera Lindsey.

A rollicking good yarn that I took for historical fiction when I borrowed it from the library, but which turns about to be the biography of a "currency lass", Mary Ann Gill, whose suitor is charged with her abduction in 1848 when she leaves runs away from home at aged fifteen in order to marry him.

59176 Seventh book for #aww2017 Promise by Sarah Armstrong - a gripping story. Raises lots of ethical issues about child protection. Not a comfortable read for me.

My review here.

Promise by Sarah Armstrong
59176 I don't know how many I'll get to do, but I'm kicking off with Jeannie Lockett's The Millwood Mystery, serialised in Australian Town and Country Journal in 1886-87.

59176 Fifth book for #AWW2017: The Woman Next Door by Liz Byrski - a story of friendship and neighbours, and a portrait of different kinds of love. Highly recommended.

59176 Fourth book for #AWW2017. (Yes, I'm definitely procrastinating about my writing, but this one had been on hold at the library, so I just had to get it!)

Where The Light Falls by Gretchen Shirm.

A well-written study of grief and loss, and portrait of an artist-photographer.

My review here.

59176 Third book for #AWW2017, Dangerous to Know by Anne Buist. Every bit as compelling as the first in the series, Medea's Curse.

My review.

59176 My second book for the 2017 AWW challenge, Medea's Curse by Anne Buist. A compelling read for lovers of psychological suspense. My short review here.

59176 Excellent, thanks, Brenda. I'll certainly add these to the list. (The list started out as adult fiction but I should add the other categories.)

59176 I'm going for Franklin level this year, read 10 and review 6. This is a minimum sign up goal because I'm hoping to get back into some serious writing this year. If I manage more, it'll be a bonus (or because I'm procrastinating with my writing!).

I aimed to read at least 50 books and review at least 25 (this was the first year I..."

Congratulations, Anna! What a fantastic effort. I'm glad you're joining the challenge again next year.
