The challenge goal is to read 12 debuts, so I feel pretty good that I was able to review 30 of them!

  8. Glamorous Illusions by Lisa T. Bergren
  9. Come See About Me by C.K. Kelly Martin
  10. Shifters (Series Spotlight) by Rachel Vincent

I initially challenged myself to review 6 New Adult titles, so I'm psyched that I almost doubled that! I also know that I read a ton more New Adult titles than I actually reviewed.

Books re-read simply for the pleasure:

I divided the titles like this because I found it interesting how much I re-read this year simply based on re-familiarizing myself with the series plot and characters.
