New to You Reading Challenge
Hosted by Anna at Herding Cats and Burning Soup, The New To You Reading Challenge is all about leaving your reading comfort zone, trying on new shoes (figuratively) and reviewing these books.

The Rules are:
  1. This can be a debut author.
  2. A brand new to you author.
  3. And old favorites “debut” book.
  4. A new series.
  5. A first time reading a new genre (ex if you read your first New Adult book)
  6. or any other new that crosses your path


And The Level are:

  • Level 1–   6 “new to you”s
  • Level 2– 12 “new to you”s
  • Level 3– 24 “new to you”s
  • Level 4– 36 “new to you”s
  • Level 5– 48 “new to you”s
  • Level 6– 72 “new to you”s
  • Level 7–100+ “new to you”s

Since I’ve written in my earlier post about going out of my comfort zone, I intend to accomplish Level 1 with 6 books. Reading at least one book (and probably discovering new authors along the way) about the following:

  1. Vampires
  2. Sci-fi
  3. Cowboys
  4. Historical Romance
  5. Paranormal Romance
  6. Horror (gasp)


Yes, well, I really shy away (or shake my head vigorously) when people suggest to me to read these. But now, I’m accepting recommendations 🙂 If you want to join in the fun, head on over to Herding Cats and Burning Soup for the sign-up and more details 🙂

Happy 2015 reading, everyone! We’ve a whole year ahead of us!

  1. Aw yay! That’s awesome you’re jumping in and trying out some new ones 🙂

    For historical– Jennifer Delamere’s House of Trent, Sabrina Jeffries’s Hellions of Halstead Hall, Anne Barton’s Honeycote series are all very good. They’re mainstream heat so there are sex scenes if that bothers you. If looking for something more closed door on that part Jennifer Delamere is very good. An Heiress at Heart was her first.

    For vampires–oh mine are all probably going to be on the adult side of things. lol I like Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress series and the early JR Ward Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunters are vampires with a twist and so good. Charlaine Harris has the Sookie Stackhouse books as well. There’s a little heat but they’re more pg and have a mystery/UF feel to them.

    Good luck with your reads this year!
