Authors After Dark Reading Challenge

I am sad to miss the 2012 Authors After Dark conference. Having attended the first three, I have to tell you that it's an event you should attend at least once if you love the romance genre. AAD is an intimate conference, and mixing with authors and readers is so much easier to do here than at other events I've attended. I like that AAD travels annually, but as I have committed to three personal trips this year - to Florida, Germany, and California - I decided that I needed to curb my conference trips for 2012 to save money.

Hopefully in 2013 I can attend again, but for now I'll be there in spirit through the AAD Reading Challenge. It occurred to me that while I've been to AAD and have read many attending authors' books, I don't read much paranormal or other genres repped there. Since I've committed to reading 100 books this year, I pledge to make some of them from attending AAD authors.

Anyway, here are the details of the reading challenge. I will post my reviews on my Goodreads account (the active one under my real name) and link back here. I haven't chosen the books yet, but here are some of the authors I'll try. If you want to recommend a title, please comment!
