2012 Debut Author Challenge

We have decided to take on the 2012 Debut Author Challenge this year and are very excited! There are some really awesome looking debut novels that are coming out and we can’t wait to start reading them! The challenge is hosted by Kristi The Story Siren if you would like to sign up for the challenge go here http://www.thestorysiren.com/2011/11/sign-ups-for-debut-author-challenge.html


• 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.

There were so many books that most of them ended up on both of our lists so the first 12 are our combined to read books but, there were others that were on one of our lists and not the other so we posted our 10 additional reads as well.

  1. Love your 2012 picks! And I love how both of your lists of additional reads are so different. (Of course I know that some of them Jaime will have read before 2012!)

    But I definitely see a few that will be on my additional reads list for sure!

    So glad you two are doing the DAC this year!
