Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments hehe, you're welcome! :D

It's nice to read some books by authors you've never read before. When I was younger Wendy Mass was my favorite author! I have read tons of her books.

Yay!!! I was nervous picking books I'd never heard of but it sounds like I made good choices :D


message 10: by Angela (new)

Angela | 17787 comments I don't know what to read for Linda Lael Miller and Kate Perry. The library only has book 3 for The Guardians of Destiny. And Miller's books are mostly, if not all, western romances. :/

I've never read her books either. And I want everyone to try sth new :)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments How about this one Beach Blanket Bad Boys by Linda Lael Miller for Linda Lael Miller? I might read it.

Thanks, it sounds better. :) The library doesn't have it though, so I might buy it..


message 14: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments no problem :)

Mehsi | 26632 comments I would participate, but my library only has 3 or 4 of those mentioned. :(


message 16: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Aww that's too bad. But no worry :) I'll post more sets later. Or you can read this set, just read the ones that are available for you.


message 17: by Mehsi (new)

Mehsi | 26632 comments Yeah. I am really sad that my library doesn't have them.
I will wait for the next set. Any idea when? Is there going to be one every new month?


message 18: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Not that long, since this is not a monthly challenge. I am going to post another set around Saturday or so.

Oh thanks, can't wait for the new list to appear. :)


message 24: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments You are welcome :)


message 25: by Janna (new)

Janna Marie (jannamarie) | 640 comments Did I miss something, because I didn't see any YA-ish on Linda Lael Miller's list of books.. ???


message 26: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments This doesn't focus on YA actually. We just want to read books from different authors. You know, to broaden our horizon.

But I plan to post more sets focus on YA.


message 27: by Janna (new)

Janna Marie (jannamarie) | 640 comments Okay! Sounds good to me. I'm still in. I just have to find something thats NOT western. LOL


message 28: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments haha... come on! Who knows? You might like it :) I haven't read many western, and I'm sure more of us haven't either. That's why I included Linda Lael Miller :D New year, we should try sth new.

I've tried westerns in the past, SOOOO not my thing. I won't even watch western movies or tv. I don't know what it is about them. Though, I ended up finding a book she did with a few other authors. It's broken up into smaller stories.. one of which is western. JUST FOR YOU! LOL :D
