Challenge Post: 2012 Debut Authors

{ ++ } This year I am entering Kristi's (The Story Siren) Debut Author challenge.  You can find all of the relevant info, buttons, newsletter sign-ups, and everything else here, but the gist of it is...


  • To read & review a minimum of twelve young adult or middle grade debut novels between the dates of January 1, 2012 - January 31, 2013.* 

*The 2013 extension is so that December Debuts can be read and count toward the challenge.

  • You must have a blog to post your reviews or be a member of Goodreads. 
  • Your blog must be written in English.
  • Deadline to join is May 31, 2012.
  • Must be a young adult or middle grade title.
  • Must be the author’s YA or MG debut, released in 2012.
  • If an author has a previous novel published for adults or children, they can still qualify for the challenge.
  • If an author has a previous YA or MG title, they do not qualify for the challenge.

{ ++ } I wanted to share my list of the 2012 debuts I am for sure going to read.  I am hoping to read more than 12; however, I am also hoping to spend some time wittling down my personal TBR stack I've accumulated this last year.  So we'll see how it goes!  :)  I will come back here to add links to my reviews once I have read and reviewed the books, so check back!
