2012 Debut Author Challenge


I have really enjoyed taking part in the 2011 Debut Author Challenge so I'm looking forward to joining in again in 2012.  The challenge is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and you can sign up here.

The aim of the challenge is to read at least 12 YA debut novels during 2012 but considering I've already read 29 debuts in 2011 (and we're only in November!) I'm hoping I can read at least as many again next year.

UPDATE - 2nd Jan 2012: I actually managed to read 50 YA debuts in 2011 so since I've already got 37 2012 debuts on my radar I'm going to try and read at least 50 this year too.

Here is a list of 2012 YA debuts I've already got my eye on, I may or may not read all of them and I'm sure I'll be adding others to the list throughout the year but hopefully this might give you a few ideas to help you get started!  I'll add links to my reviews as and when they're posted.

  2. I'm looking forward to doing this one again Viv, it gives me a good excuse to focus on those debuts (although there are still loads of 2011 debuts that I need to read lol)
