Wrap Up – Unread Author’s Challenge

I completed this challenge today! I read five (5) books from my original list and one (1) book from my alternates list. You can view my entire list with links to reviews here.

I enjoyed all the new authors I read, rating 4 of the 6 a high 4.5/5 (highly recommended), and 2 of the 6 a 4/5 rating (recommended).

My favorite part of the challenge was adding to my “new to me” author list. For a long time I was stuck in a rut of only reading those authors I was familiar with…in 2007, I decided to branch out and try to read more new authors. This has really expanded my reading, and added to my favorite authors to choose from!

I would definitely participate in this challenge were it to be offered again. Thank you Ariel for hosting a fabulous reading challenge!!

    Yay! Congrats on finishing, Wendy. I’ve seen The Good Earth a lot recently but haven’t heard much about it.

    Thanks, Trish! I hadn’t heard much about The Good Earth either, but I guess it is a classic…and it is definitely worth the read.

    I just read your review of the Sarah Waters book. I’ve been wanting to read something by her for a long time. Glad to see you liked it. And Congrats on finishing the challenge!

    Thanks, Stephanie! Let me know your thoughts on the Water’s book after you’ve read it 🙂

    You had such amazing success with the challenge – Congrats! We will definitely be doing it again, I think (at which point I hope to be less overwhelmed by work and be able to get many more unread authors under my belt!)….
