New Author Challenge
Literary Escapism is holding a New Author Challenge for 2011 and this seemed a great way to get myself away from reading books by the same old authors.
"The idea behind this is to find new authors that you’ve never tried before. They can be in your genre of choice or be brave and try something new."
I am going to aim for 15 new authors but will hopefully manage more. There will be some overlap from my other challenges with some of my list.
1) The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets by Eva Rice
2) The Outcast by Sadie Jones
3) Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks
4) The Children's Book by A.S. Byatt
5) A Widow for One Year by John Irving
6) The Last Town on Earth by Thomas Mullen
7) Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb
8) The Various by Steve Augarde
9) The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld
10) The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
11) Beloved by Toni Morrison
12) Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
13) The Museum's Secret by Henry Chancellor
14) Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman
15) Tithe by Holly Black
