It’s time once again for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge, hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren. I’m really excited to participate this year (my first time!).  All the details are found below, as seen on Kristi’s post!

CHALLENGE OBJECTIVE:
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.

RULES & GUIDELINES:
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.

BOOK GUIDELINES:
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.

My picks:

  1. Under the Never Sky, Veronica Rossi
  2. Switched, Amanda Hocking
  3. Dragonswood, Janet Lee Carey

  1. Great list! I have to start my actual list soon!
    Switched by Amanda Hocking isn’t a debut though 😦 its just being republished by st. Martins. Her book Wake is on Kristi’s list though I don’t really know why if shes got other books out and I thought they were classified as YA. The list is a little confusing lol. Regardless, this is my first year participating too and I’m really excited.
