New To You 2015 Reading Challenge

Huge thanks to Cynthia over at Bingeing on Books for pointing out this latest challenge. She posted about it and I went "oooooh shiny!" and am signing up, too! It's the New To You 2015 Reading Challenge from Herding Cats & Burning Soup and the basic goal is to set a number of, you guessed it, new to you whatevers to read for the year.
According the sign-up page (which you can get to by clicking the challenge name OR the image above), this "new to you" can be:

This can be a debut author.
A brand new to you author.
And old favorites "debut" book.
A new series.
A first time reading a new genre (ex if you read your first New Adult book)
or any other new that crosses your path

I went through The Reading Thing and figured out where I stand right now as is and I've got 30 books lined up that would fit either new-to-me author (30), old favorites debut book (2), or new-to-me series (11). Most of the series are also new-to-me authors but if I have a plan to continue the series, I'm counting it as a series.

The 30 puts me half way between level three (24 books) and level four (36 books). Hrmph. I want to be a level four but it's already going to be tough (I think) reading everything I have planned now without trying to add in 6 new books. Ooooooh but I want to try!
