I’m up to the challenge

I tried to do a book blogger challenge before and I failed hard. But this one sounds so good, and I’ve been debating joining for a while now. I’m game this time.

Kristi at The Story Siren is hosting the Debut Author Challenge. The goal, of course, is to choose to read a certain number of debut authors. Since I’ve already read a fair number since the year began, I think I can up the goal and really stick to it.

This is where I’ll post my progress and what my potential reads are. I’ll also link to my reviews, if posted. I’m going to aim for reading 20 debut authors over the year. Yes, there are more than 20 on this list, but that’s for my sake. If you want to join in the challenge, you can read the rules and sign up here.

    Oh man, Swati, I am SO excited to read your book. It sounds so different from a lot of other stuff – a story told when other stories stop. Thanks for stopping by (btw, next week you'll see your book pop up again for a different post on covers).
