Historical fiction has had a strong start to the year here at AWW with 39 reviews on 27 books written by 21 authors linked into our database for the month of January. Thank you to all of you who take the time to not only read and review books written by our fabulous Australian women, but also take the extra step of linking those reviews into our database. The resource that it is today would not be in existence without your support and efforts.


The two most mentioned titles for January were:

The Women and The Girls by Laura Bloom with six reviews

Elizabeth and Elizabeth by Sue Williams with six reviews and one interview


For Veronica @ The Burgeoning Bookshelf, The Women and The Girls ticked all the boxes:

‘The Women and the Girls was everything it promised to be; A funny, probing and moving novel filled with the music, clothes, hair and food of the time, encapsulating everything that made the 70’s unforgettable. A truly nostalgic trip for those of an age to remember the era.’

I really loved this one too.


Bree @1girl2manybooks enjoyed Elizabeth and Elizabeth, labelling it as:

‘An interesting combination of fact and fiction that held my attention and made me want to investigate both women more.’

I am yet to read this one, but I did interview Sue Williams about it over at Theresa Smith Writes.


Until next month, enjoy your literary travels back through time…. 📚
