Week 1 Update
There's only been a few days in May so far, but I've already finished one book and discovered my first new author of the month!
I read How To Fall by Jane Casey, which is the first book in her Jess Tennant murder mystery series and I really, really enjoyed it! It was sent to me for review absolutely AGES ago and languished on my shelves until now. Luckily for me, there's already a sequel which was published earlier this year and I'm really excited to read it.
How To Fall tells the story of Jess Tennant and her mother who return to Jess's mom's hometown, Port Sentinel, after 18 years away and Jess becomes really interested in solving the murder of her look-alike cousin. I'm really interested in learning more about Jess, her mom, and the characters we've been introduced to in Port Sentinel. I'm really interested in more in this series and will definitely be looking to reading the sequel, Bet Your Life, after this challenge has been completed.
Week 1 total: 1 book read = 1 newly discovered author (Jane Casey)
Have you discovered any new to you authors recently? Are you taking part in #NewToMeMay?
Pretty good start! I actually have three new-to-me authors coming up, two of them for review but still count!ReplyDelete
Yes, review books definitely count :) I have quite a few of them on my pile for this month. I'm hoping to get through quite a few books in May...Delete
Interesting challenge. I often read authors that are new to me, so I don't get very far in any series cause I try to check out different authors on a regular basis but gives quite a diversity to the reading. So, neat idea for a challenge.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Dawn. I've been finding that I HAVEN'T been reading much else but authors I've already read and loved this year so I really needed a push to try out new stories and authors :)Delete
