2016 Author Name Challenge - A-Z!


I found a few years ago when I used to do the challenges on the eHarlequin community boards that using the Author Name Challenge could make you read people you may not have discovered before.

It really wasn't the case this time around. I found the letters to go with authors I happen to read, the exception being finally getting around to read a  Julia Quinn (for U) and Amanda Quick (for Q) books.

I did manage to complete the A-Z for both male and female authors, and even managed to get the A-Z only for female authors, but alas not for male authors.




A- Aaron Blabey - The Bad Guys: Episode 1 - Jan - 5 stars!
B - Vanessa Barneveld - This is Your Afterlife
C - Christina Phillips - Bloodlust Denied - Jan-  5 stars!
D - Tessa Dare - A Night to Remember - Mar - 4.5 stars!
E  - Eoin Colfer - Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident Graphic Novel
F - Jeaniene Frost - Halfway to the Grave - May - 5 stars!
G -Anne Gracie - To Catch A Bride - 5 stars!
H - Erica Hayes - Hellcursed - Jan - 5 stars!
I - Ilona Andrews - Magic Bites - Jun - 4.5  stars
J - Rachael Johns - The Patterson Girls - Jan - 5 stars!

The following female authors names replace the male names in the list and complete the female A-Z.

A -  Allison Rushby - The Seven Month Itch - Mar - 5 stars!

M - Monica McInerney - The Christmas Gift - Jan - 3 stars

These are extra male authors but there are still missing letters of C, F, H, I, K, O, P, Q, S, U, V, X, Y, Z.

B - Julian Barnes - Arthur and George | Nov | 4 stars
