2012 Challenges (1) - 2012 Debut Author Challenge

Happy Thursday!

As promised, I am starting to post about the Reading Challenges I am participating during 2012.

First one I decided to participate was 2012 Debut Author Challenge which is organized and hosted by The Story Siren.

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.

•Any advance reader copies you read from 2012 BEFORE the January 1st start date DO NOT count toward the challenge!
•You can read twelve books in one month, or one book a month. It doesn’t matter as long as you have 12 read by the end of the year!

RULES & GUIDELINES:

•You must have a Blog to post your reviews or be a member of Goodreads. Youtube Book Reviewers count too!
•Your blog/video 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.

(All objectives, guidelines and rules are created by The Story Siren. Link is here: http://www.thestorysiren.com/2011/11/sign-ups-for-the-debut-author-challenge.html )

I am not yet sure what these twelve books will be, there are so many of the YA books which will be published in 2012 and which I would like to read. One thing is sure, there will definitely be 12 books!

Happy reading!
