Aussie Author Challenge 2014 completed

The Aussie Author Challenge 2014 is being hosted at Booklover Book Reviews

I'm aiming initially at Kangaroo (12 titles) but the reality is that I will read many more than that.
- Read and review 12 titles written by Australian Authors of which at least 4 of those authors are female, at least 4 of those authors are male, and at least 4 of those authors are new to you;
- At least 6 fiction and at least 2 non-fiction, and at least 3 titles first published in 2013 or 2014.

Completing this challenge actually involved a bit more reading than I had thought at first.
The challenge required 12 titles and initially I thought it would take no time at all, and then I realised that I couldn't just use any old 12 Australia titles - there were criteria, although some of them could overlap.
Today I am able to claim completion although I will continue reading Australian authors.
