I read so many new authors every year that it is tough for me to actually pick up the next in a series let alone another book from the same author. Plus I’m always willing to give a new series a try especially if the premise is one that sounds compelling. So I’m shooting for a very do-able 50 books that are in some way new to me.
I love seeing what other book lovers are reading and how they feel about their latest reads… please feel free to friend me on Goodreads!
