Srividya Vijapure (theinkedmermaid) Two questions

1. The first clue - Read your first-ever novel of the four genres mentioned above --- Does this mean, first ever since we start this challenge or first ever of an author we choose or first ever in the genre itself. If it is the first two then its fine but the third can be difficult as most of us have already read books in these genres.

2. the last two clues are the same - is it a repeat or do you mean most favorite and least favorite?

Love these challenges and want to participate in as many of them and being new so excited that I am asking all these questions.. :P :)

Your 1st question - Well, it actually is first ever in the genre but you can go ahead with first ever of the author you choose.

2. The last two clues have been repeated - I'll just edit it!

And best of luck!
