Author Love Challenge 2018 Sign-Up #authorluv18

Welcome to the Author Love Challenge 2018. This is, by far, our most low-key challenge. We started it late last year and even though I don’t think either Michelle or I made our goal, I know I came a lot closer to finishing off my author and for that I’m thrilled! We hope you’ll join us in giving that special author some love!

The Rules

    • Pick an author that you love and wish you’d read more of their books.
    • Set a goal to read x number of books by that author by the end of the year. You can make your goal to read all their books, but all we ask is that your goal be at least 5. If you’d like a more hard-core challenge to READ ALL THE BOOKS – check out Ana @ Herding Cat and Burning Soup’s challenge.
    • Announce your participation, author, and goal in a blog post, goodreads post, FB post, etc. and link up below.
    • Have fun finally catching up with a favorite author!

About Berls

Michelle adopted me as part of her blog when I decided to close down my blog, Fantasy is More Fun. The blog was dying, but my love of reading and the blogosphere was still strong as ever - so I found my new home here at Because Reading!

I'm not just a book lover, but a one time author (that hopes to be more in the future), wife, and step-mom to the craziest, sweetest 17 year old on the planet. I also have the privilege of teaching Kindergarten. I love what I do and you can expect it to bleed into my posts. Teaching is a big a part of me as my family and reading. So grab a glass of wine and chat books, blogging, and family with me!

  1. This is a lovely challenge! I have posted my participation and linked it here. The author I have chosen is Jeffery Archer. Hoping to strike off as many as possible off the list I have made.

    • Good luck! You just need to pick one for the challenge. I get the urge to pick more though… I have SO MANY I want to catch up in!

  2. OK, this is likely a silly question, but it has to be an author that you have 15 unread books left for? I don’t think I have any of those, I’m bummed. There are a few authors I have like 10 books left to read to catch up, but I couldn’t find one with 15 minimum. Ah well…maybe another year.

  3. I’m going to join, but my post for this will be up at the end of december or beginning January. I’m still thinking about which author to choose. πŸ™‚

      • Haha. So we didn’t realize we had said 5 this year… I think the 5 this year was a typo. That’s a little more than 1 book a month, so shouldn’t be too hard πŸ™‚

      • It’s suppose to be at LEAST 5 books but you only need to read at most 15. I think that is how we got confused. I just re-read my notes about the challenge and that was what we had written down. Sorry for the confusion!

    • Yeah, that’s definitely a good one! I wanted to do something that’s just 1 year, so I don’t feel too trapped (I know… No one is forcing me lol) but I love the open ended option to really get caught up on an author with hers!
