2018 New (to me) Author Challenge

I've done this challenge for the past eight years and discovered some great new-to-me authors along the way (not hard to believe since I've read 537 new (to me) authors from 2010 to 2017). A few of my favorite authors that I've "discovered" over the past few years are Jenn Bennett, Kerrigan Byrne, Chanel Cleeton, C.C. Galloway, Larissa Ione, Robin LaFevers, Heather McCollum, Jeanette Murray, Lilah Pace, Stacy Reid, Tiffany Reisz, 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.
Dates: January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018
