New Author Challenge

I've got a couple of posts in progress, but I keep getting stuck somewhere before the "post" button. So I'm going to take the easy way out and give you a quick list of authors that are on my list so far for the 50 new authors challenge:

50 New Authors
1 Ilona Andrews
2 Linnea Sinclair
3 JL Langley
4 Samantha Kane
5 Kelley Armstrong
6 Josh Lanyon
7 Rachel Vincent
8 Karen Chance
9 Justin Gustainis
10 Jeri Smith-Ready
11 Shannon McKenna
12 Katie MacAlister
13 Alexis Morgan
14 Anya Bast
15 Nina Bangs
16 Vicki Pettersson
17 Brunonia Barry
18 Julie James
19 Jacquelyn Mitchard
20 Ivy Alexander
21 Judith James
22 Carrie Lofty
23 Keri Arthur
24 Charlie Huston
25 Virginia Kantra
26 Angela Knight
27 Geralyn Dawson
28 Janice Maynard
29 Shelley Monroe

Not a bad list, although I may have to disqualify Julie James because I sort of gobbled up The Sexiest Man Alive (so to speak. heh.) for my personal rockin' New Year's Eve. Since I finished it at 11:30 pm or so, technically, I think it has to go in the 2008 pile.

My rule about anthology authors: if I've read a short piece of theirs before, but not a full-length novel, they still count as new-to-me.

DO you have to do reviews for each book you read?

Eep. I love that you have Charlie Huston on there! YAY!

Nicola O. said...

I don't think I *have* to do anything, LOL. No, reviews aren't required, but I'll try to do them especially for the authors that I really like.

You don't have to do 50 either; you set your own goal.

I love the exerpt you posted from the Huston book, Sayuri-- that's how he got on there!

I'm doing the new author challenge, too, although I'm working out who to read as I go. You have some of my favorite authors on your list. Enjoy!

Nicola O. said...
