2017 New Authors Reading Challenge

The 2017 New Authors Reading Challenge is hosted by Literary Escapism, and it goes from January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017. The goal of this reading challenge is to read new-to-you authors.   

There's no levels to join at for this challenge - which means that we get to pick how many new authors we want to read. I join this challenge primarily to keep track of how many new authors I do read, and I tend to read a lot, so I'm joining at 45 again (last year I read 75, but I do want to focus on reading my own books this year as well as catching up on some series I'm currently reading) . I'll keep track of them here. I'll also link my reviews to the list.

***As of 8/31/17, I completed this challenge. I'm going to keep going to see how many new authors I can read this year!!!
