Now, this is what I call a challenge. I love to read, but I seem to always be reading the same authors over and over again. I really want to get out there and read new authors, but I never can bring myself to! Now, with a challenge, there'll be added motivation for me to do so because I hate to fail at something I've started! Alright, here are the guidelines, taken directly from here!
The challenge will run from January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012.
Since this is an author challenge, there is no restriction on choosing your novels. They can definitely be from other challenges. However, the authors must be new to you and, preferably from novels. Anthologies are a great way to try someone new, but only a third of your new authors can be from anthologies.
I want this to be an easy challenge, so you can pick to do either 15, 25 or 50 new authors. It all depends on how fast you read and how adventurous you want to be. For me, I want to say I’m going to do another 50 new authors, but with two kids, I didn’t made my goal in 2011, so I’m going to be smarter and say 25. If you reach your goal halfway through the year, don’t stop. Any new author you try can be added to Mr. Linky. We all want to know about your new experience.
After reading your new author, write your review and then come back here and add your link to Mr. Linky. Make sure you include your name and the author, but adding the title is completely up to you.
Bloggers or Non-Bloggers alike are welcome. You don’t have to have a site to participate. You can link up via Facebook, GoodReads or even Amazon if you’d like.
Once you reach your goal, you don’t have to stop. Any new author you try, go ahead and head back here and add it to the list. Introduce us all to whoever you find. Afterall, there’s no reason to stop trying new authors, right?
Can't wait to start! I don't have any solid list, but I have some authors in mind already! And I want to make the challenge more difficult so I'm gonna limit myself to not more than 10 new Harlequin authors. I mean, the books are so short and they have so many authors, it really isn't a challenge to read new ones! I wanna get the main ones from historical romances and some from contemporary romance because I've been searching in vain for an author to compare up to my favorite author, Judith Mcnaught and I haven't found one yet! Of course, I haven't really been searching!
