2016 New (to me) Author Challenge

I've done this challenge for the past six years and discovered some great new-to-me authors along the way (not hard to believe since I've read 473 new (to me) authors from 2010 to 2015). My favorite authors I "discovered" over the past few years are Macy Beckett, Jenn Bennett, C.C. Galloway, DJ Gross, Larissa Ione, Robin LaFevers, Jeanette Murray, Lilah Pace, Abigail Roux, Riley Shane, Cherise Sinclair, Dee Tenorio, Lynn Viehl, Amanda Weaver, and Elia Winters.

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