Debut Author Challenge - October Update
The year has zoomed by, but I've managed to keep on track with the Debut Author Challenge. Last month, I read and reviewed Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys (and guys, seriously, read this book). And I'm almost done with The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (review forthcoming).
Alas, I haven't had time to go back and finish any of the other books I'm reading. So I'm going to choose one of them to complete for my December read. One thing I've learned during the year is that unless I can get an egalley before the publication date, I just don't have the time to read a book during the month it's published. Fetching by Kiera Stewart, which was my December read choice so very long ago, ended up being published in November, and I missed the egalley boat.
But I'm halfway through How Lamar's Bad Prank Won a Bubba-Sized Trophy by Crystal Allen and halfway through Blood Red Road by Moira Young. Two completely different books, I know.
So help me decide! Which one should I choose to be my December read?
