mim (eruannalle) | 79 comments 3rd Quarterly Challenge: Authors

Progress: 8/8
Completed: 15/9/2013

1. Read a book by an author who shares your initials (first and last only, no need to match middle initials).
No One Belongs Here More Than You by Miranda July

2. Read a book by an author from your home country.

3. Read a book written by an author whose first language is different from your own.
Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt (I had it really easy here, since English isn't my frist language - I could just pick any book.)

4. Read a book by a new-to-you author.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

5. Read a book by an author who's known for a genre you don't primarily read.

6. Read a book by an author born in your birth month.
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

- St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves, by Karen Russell. I was born in '93, so I went for the 80s option - she was born in '81.

8. Read a book by an author who has penned an autobiography (you can, but do not have to, read the autobiography itself).

9. Read a book by a self-published author (the book you read does not have to be self-published, but the author must have self-published at some point in his or her career).

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell.

11. Read a book by a debut author.
The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo
