Memoir, Biography, History: 2012 Tally

(Imported from Blogger; formatting glitches need to be fixed)

Memoir/Biography/History: 2012 releases

The other day when the tally of literary books was posted, Text publishing tweeted that their biography of Elizabeth and Mary Durack by Brenda Niall should have been included.

Should more nonfiction titles be regarded as “literary”?

The follow is a list of books reviewed for the AWW challenge during January-June.

Disclaimer: If there are errors
with release dates, please let me know – reprints make it difficult to
judge original publication dates on publishers’ websites.

Tally: 10 books, 11 reviewers, 12 reviews

Memoir

Biography

History

Are there other memoirs, biographies or histories published this year that haven’t been reviewed for the challenge?
