On July 1st, I had completed one book for this challenge.  I didn’t think I would finish the remaining three by month’s end, so I just decided to write this off as not completed.  About two weeks later, I decided I really wanted to complete this one as I liked the theme I chose:  new-to-me authors residing in New York City.  Pushing everything aside, I committed to finishing.  Here’s my original list:

  1. Emily Listfield – Acts of Love
  2. Elizabeth Noble – Things I Want My Daughters to Know
  3. Sherri Rifkin – LoveHampton
