2017 Debut Author Challenge

In 2017, I set three different goals for myself. First, to read 125 books overall.  Second, to complete the Modern Mrs. Darcy reading challenge.  Third, to read twelve books by debut authors.

I’m still hard at work on my goal of 125 books and I have a couple prompts left for #mmdreading, but my 2017 debut author challenge is officially complete!

The debuts I’ve read in 2017, so far, are:

You Don’t Know My Name by Kristen Orlando
Seven Days of You by Cecilia Vinesse
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde
You’re Welcome, Universe by Whitney Gardner
The Education of Margot Sanchez by Lilliam Rivera
The Inevitable Collision of Birdie & Bash by Candace Ganger
Kissing Max Holden by Katy Upperman
The Big F by Maggie Ann Martin
I Hate Everyone But You by Gaby Dunn & Allison Raskin
The Temptation of Adam by Dave Connis
27 Hours by Tristina Wright

While I’ll no longer be actively seeking out debut authors of 2017 (now I need to focus on shrinking my TBR), I’m sure I’ll be reading more.  I’m already looking forward to next year’s challenge.

I am so excited for both of these ARCs!

As you’ve probably seen, I’ve had You Don’t Know My Name on a couple of posts recently – it’s a 2017 debut that I’m really interested in checking out.  And then, of course, Laura Drewry is one of my favorite authors, and I’ve absolutely loved the first two books in her Fishing for Trouble series.  I can’t wait to dive into Catch and Release.

Big thanks to Netgalley, Swoon Reads, and Loveswept for the advance copies.

Top Ten Tuesday: 2017 debuts that I’m excited for

Happy first Top Ten Tuesday of 2017!  Today’s theme is ten 2017 debuts that I’m excited for*.  There are actually a ton of debuts I’m looking forward to this year, so it was kind of hand to pick ten. I changed my mind a couple times (sorry to the authors I left off the list!) and finally settled on these books.

* I did not list books that I’ve already read.  2017 ARCs that I really loved will show up on my best of 2016 lists!
