    Yay, glad you’re joining the challenge! And I’m impressed that you’re not including the debuts you read before joining. But it seems like my reading time is a lot more limited than many other bloggers’. Great list! I’m excited to read many of these myself.

      haha, we’ll see if I’m able to accomplish it 🙂 I hope so! It’s hard to get in good reading time. I feel like I’m constantly picking a book up only to read a page then having to stop to do something else. Seeing that you were involved is what encouraged me to join!

    Ooooh, nice challenge, I have read quite a few of those already, will await your review of some of the other before picking them up!

    I love to see this list of all these authors with their debut books. There are some fantastic ones on your list (including Reboot, ITSOB, Pivot Point, and Splintered.) Most of the remainders are on my TBR, and I have high hopes for them as well!
