2015 New (to me) Author Challenge

I've done this challenge for the past five years and discovered some great new-to-me authors along the way (not hard to believe since I've read 409 new (to me) authors from 2010 to 2014). My favorite authors I "discovered" over the past few years are Macy Beckett, Jenn Bennett, C.C. Galloway, DJ Gross, Larissa Ione, Robin LaFevers, Abigail Roux, Riley Shane, Cherise Sinclair, Dee Tenorio, and Lynn Viehl.

The Challenge: Read 20 or more books this year by authors you’ve never read before.
