~ New 2 U Author Challenge - 2015 ~




Duration: Reoccurring every year, but start fresh from January to December. (If you start after January, you may back-post from the beginning of the year.)

Rules: Read books by authors that are New 2 U (new to you).

• If an author writes under a pseudonym, you may use that, provided it is a
  different genre (or sub-genre, writes Historical Romance under one name and
  Paranormal Romance under another) and you have NOT read any of those books.

• Anthologies are always a wonderful way to try someone new, so long as
  one of the stories has been written by a New 2 U author, it is permitted.

• Audiobooks are fine.

• Novellas are fine.

• You can set your goal now, or adjust as the year progresses.

• Feel free to make a special comment, if you found a real winner.
  (★Stars★ or ♥hearts♥ indications welcome!)

• Please indicate your totals. For example:
05/10
LEVELS
Come What May = Let's see how many I read.
Fresh Face = 5
Adventurer = 10
Risk Taker = 15
Devil May Care = 20 or more!

Need help? Check out listopia.

Thanks, Jessica, for the motivation to do this one. ☺
