What: New Author Challenge
When: 1 January – 31 December 2009
Who: Jackie (Literary Escapism)
Rules: To read as many new-to-you authors as you think you can in one year. Novels preferred, but anthologies are also acceptable.

My goal is 12 new authors. Books in RED count on multiple challenges:
01. Gifford, Blythe – Innocence Unveiled {6 Jan 09} (REVIEW)
02. Singh, Nalini – Slave to Sensation {24 Jan 09} (REVIEW)
03. Kenin, Eve – Driven {7 Feb 09} (REVIEW)
04. Ashwood, Sharon – Ravenous {18 Feb 09} (REVIEW)
05. Feehan, Christine – Shadow Game {10 Mar 09} (REVIEW)

~~ & ~~

If you have seen my Top Ten for 2009, then you know that several of these new-to-me authors made the list.  Most of them, I plan to read more of their work — if I haven’t already.  I can’t really say which was the least liked, since I finished all of them and nothing got lower than a 3-star.

I’m signed up for 2010.  I did so well, I plan to squeeze a few more new-to-me authors than I did this year.  We’ll see how that works out with the move.
