Unread Authors Challenge

I have many books sitting on my shelves by authors I have never read before so this is the perfect challenge for me.

The Challenge will run from September to February 2008. The challenge is being hosted by Sycorax Pine and more details can be found on her blog. The rules are:

1) Read six books by authors you have never read before.

2) You can choose one or two (or 3-5) unread authors and read several of their works, or you can choose six neglected (by you) writers and read a book apiece by them. Authors of fiction, non-fiction, genre fiction, graphic novels/comics, drama, and poetry are all welcome inclusions, although the individual works you choose should be book length.

My list for this challenge is:

Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards
Mother of Pearl by Melinda Haynes
Here on Earth by Alice Hoffman
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
Black and Blue by Anna Quindlen

Welcome to the challenge, Pamela! What a great list of (all women, right?) authors. I look forward to hearing what you think of these books, since all of the authors except Alice Hoffman are also unread by me!

Great choices, Pamela! I'm checking out everyone's choices for this challenge before coming up with my own. I really enjoyed Memory Keeper's Daughter and hope you will too.

I just joined the Unread Authors Challenge - my first challenge ever! I'm so excited. Anyway, liked your list - I love Stephenie Meyer and Anna Quindlen. Hope you like them, too. My list is at:

i read Black and Blue a number of years ago, and The Memory Keeper's Daughter and both Twilight and New Moon (as well as the third in that series, Eclipse) earlier this year - and i enjoyed them all. (i've got reviews of this year's reads on my book blog.)

i've got Alice Hoffman on my list for this challenge - but i haven't yet decided which of her books to read.
