Sheree started reviewing books in 2018 with her own blog project, Keeping Up With The Penguins. She compiled a list of 109 classic books and backlist titles that she felt she “should” have read already, an approach that resonated with other would-be booklovers. She currently publishes a new review each week, as well as regular bookish features and discussions. When she has read and reviewed all books on her original list, Keeping Up With The Penguins will expand its scope to incorporate more recent releases and forthcoming titles.
Keeping Up With The Penguins has seen steady growth in reach and audience since its inception. Sheree has also found a significant following for the blog on Instagram and Pinterest. She posts more about what she’s reading for Keeping Up With The Penguins on the book-specific social media platforms Goodreads and Litsy.

In 2019, Sheree began reviewing new and forthcoming book releases for Primer, a site that reflects everything that women are and everything they aspire to be. They feature stories on the issues that matter from some of Australia’s most engaging and exciting writers. Primer has embedded empowerment into their business model, by delivering 50 per cent of their profits to NGOs that help women in need.
