EditorAdmin Posted July 17, 2021 Share Posted July 17, 2021 We’ve reached the end of our second week for this year’s Women In SFF, so let’s see what’s been happening in the feature this week! We’ve been completely floored by the incredible response from the community; we can’t tell you how much we love seeing all your responses to our photo challenge prompts, or how properly excited we get to see blog posts inspired by them! 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…? Reviews 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!
