New Author Challenge 2010

January 1st, 2010 - December 31st, 2010

Sign Up Here:

Literary Escapism is hosting this challenge and I had to enlist. I love reading, and especially new authors.


1. The challenge will run from January 1, 2010 through December 31, 2010.
2. Since this is an author challenge, there is no restriction on choosing your novels. They can definitely be from other challenges. However, the authors must be new to you and, preferably from novels. Anthologies are a great way to try someone new, but only a third of your new authors can be from anthologies.
3. I want this to be an easy challenge, so you can pick to do either 15, 25 or 50 new authors. It all depends on how fast you read and how adventurous you want to be. For me, I’m trying another 25 new authors. If you reach your goal halfway through the year, don’t stop. Any new author you try can be added to Mr. Linky. We all want to know about your new experience.
4. After reading your new author, write your review and then go back to Literary Escapism and add your link to Mr. Linky. Make sure you include your name and the author, but adding the title is completely up to you.
5. Bloggers or Non-Bloggers alike are welcome.

Once you reach your goal, you don’t have to stop. Any new author you try, go ahead and head back to Literary Escapism and add it to the list. Introduce us all to whoever you find. Afterall, there’s no reason to stop trying new authors, right?!

I'm choosing 25 new authors. I know small list, but I don't want to put too much. Less is more, and plus I can add more anyway. I will add them as I come across them. If they are new, they have to be previously unknown right?!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
