A quarter of the way through the year, and we’re back with the round up! This month we had 23 reviews for books aimed at children and younger readers, and 9 for young adult readers. Each category had quite a variety that it was hard to choose which ones to highlight....

Crime Fiction Round-Up March-April 2021

I can not believe we are almost at the end of April, halfway through the first lot of school holidays, and there has not been nearly enough reading happening in my house. Definitely not enough reviewing, I am getting further and further behind with those and am...

Classics and Literary Round-up: March 2021

Interesting! March seems like a big reading month for the challenge. In 2019, 2020 and again this year, we had over sixty reviews for literary fiction and classics posted to the challenge, significantly more than the preceding Februarys. Why is this? Is it that autumn...
Non-Fiction (General) Round Up: March 2021

Non-Fiction (General) Round Up: March 2021

Hello Readers! For Non-Fiction in March there was: 16 reviews, 13 reviewers, and 15 books reviewed (4 poetry). Excitingly, 8 of the books reviewed this month were completely new to the AWW database. So a big thank you! The most prolific reviewer was: Tegan Edwards (me 😱) with 3 books reviewed. The most reviewed title this month was: The Husband Poisoner (2021) by Tanya Bretherton which was reviewed twice. As always, click on the coloured quote from a review to be taken directly to it. And a quick reminder: this round up includes poetry submissions despite their not being non-fiction. It just came out in the wash that way! Perhaps one day we’ll have enough poetry reviews to give them their own round up (it’s not wishful thinking, I swear).
