handbookcontactabout

What: 2010 New Author Challenge
When: 1 January – 31 December 2010
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. Go here to sign up.

My goal this year is 20:

  • Rick Riordan — The Lightning Thief {24 Mar 10} (REVIEW)
  • L. J. McDonald — The Battle Sylph {14 May 10} (REVIEW)
  • Jennifer Greene — Secretive Stranger {31 May 10} (REVIEW)
  • Rose Lerner — In For a Penny {21 Sep 10} (REVIEW)
  • Nancy Butler — Prospero’s Daughter {9 Oct 10} (REVIEW)
  • Patricia Briggs — Moon Called {17 Nov 10} (REVIEW)

~~ & ~~

My Favorite Discovery: Patricia Briggs
Honorable Mention: L. J. McDonald

If it hadn’t been for a featured author challenge, I wouldn’t have picked up Ms. Briggs novel this year. I will be continuing her Mercy Thompson series.  I have the second McDonald book and I’m really looking forward to reading it (interesting world-building), but with the changes that took place over at Dorchester, it will be awhile before I get to read anything else from the series.  I prefer mass market paperbacks,  followed by trade paperbacks, and (in some cases) hardbacks.   E-books are now the last resort for feature length novels — and then, only if I can get it from the library.
