2023 New (to me) Author Challenge

I've done this challenge for the past twelve years and discovered some amazing authors along the way (not hard to believe since I've read 680 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.
Dates: January 1, 2023 - December 31, 2023

My list:

1. Author: Alexis Daria
Title: You Had Me at Hola (Primas of Power, Book 1)

2. Author: Kate Hunt
Title: XXL

3. Author: Molly Harper
Title: Pasties and Poor Decisions

4. Author: Lucy Worsley
Title: Agatha Christie: An Elusive Woman

5. Author: Loan Le
