First Reads Reading Challenge

Think about your favourite author for a minute. If you’re anything like me, the thought of reading their newest book fills you with a warm, fuzzy, excited feeling. Now, try to remember that feeling you got when you first picked up one of their books – and, more importantly, that feeling of awe when you finished reading it and added the author to your must-read list. That beautiful feeling is the point of this challenge, which is hosted by Debdatta from b00kr3vi3ws.

Due to the heavy demands of university, I’ll be participating at the novice level, where I’ll be challenging myself to read 1-25 books by authors whose works I’ve never read before. Seeing as how I’m one of those people who tends to mostly read books by authors I already know and love, I’m excited to expand my reading horizon — who knows, maybe I’ll find a new favourite author!

1. Pawn by Aimee Carter (review)
