2021 New (to me) Author Challenge

I've done this challenge for the past eleven years and discovered some amazing authors along the way (not hard to believe since I've read 651 debut/new-to-me authors in that time). It's fun for me to look back on these lists, especially when I see authors who are now auto-buys for me.

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