Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. The topic this week is: New-to-Me Authors I Read in 2018. So, I know that this is supposed to be a top ten list, but after looking through the books I read last year these were the only truly new authors I read books from. I’m also very glad that I discovered them! I enjoyed all of these books and have either already read or bought other books by them. 🙂
Have you read any books by these authors? If so, what did you think of them?
My first readathon of the year is officially over and I’m so happy that I participated in it! Bout of Books has been one of my favourite ways to start off the year. It’s low pressure and always motivates me to start the year off right. This time around it’s been even more special for me since I really haven’t read anything since August. I am so happy with my progress! I managed to read 3 books and get half-way through another. Fingers crossed that this is a good omen for the rest of the year. 🙂
You can check-out my daily updates and musings related to Bout of Books here on my Twitter.
What is Bout of Books?
The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, January 7th and runs through Sunday, January 13th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional.

Books That I Didn’t Finish:
Did you participate in Bout of Books? How did you do?
Anna at Reader and Proud is hosting a fun challenge called Series to Finish. Basically, the challenge is to finish the book series that you have started but haven’t gotten around to finishing (or in my case completely forgot about). I’ll be posting my progress here and on my Twitter account. I’m really looking forward to conquering my TBR through this challenge. I have so many books that I’ve forgotten about. Let’s do this! 🙂
- The challenge will run from January 1st to December 31st and you can join at any point.
- ARCs do count for the challenge, as well as books published in 2019.
- You can also include comic books and graphic novels.
