Women in SFF 2022 Week 3 WRAP UP
Welcome to our third Women in SFF wrap up post!
We’ve reached the end of our third week, and as we’ve said before, every year we are always so humbled and grateful to see the love for this feature. It’s been another fantastic week!
Each week, we’ll try and round up all this wonderful content into one summary-wrap-up post – if we’ve missed you, please comment and link below! We’d love to see the ways you’re taking part.
So, what have you all been up to…?
We’re going to kick the wrap-up off with reviews, as that’s what we’re all here for really, right? Finding those books to add to our TBR!
