Debut Author Challenge 2012
Kristi is once again hosting the Debut Author Challenge! We challenge ourselves to read at least 12 YA and/or middlegrade debuts that are published in 2012. And heck yes, I'm joining!
Last year (technically still this year..) was a blast and I cannot wait to discover all the awesome debuts coming out in 2012. I had no clue what would be published in 2011 when I signed up for the 2011 challenge and I did pretty okay, but I want to spread more debut love! So I'm going to try and read more debuts in 2012. My personal challenge is to read 20 debuts that are published in 2012.
I haven't fully compiled my list of books that I want to read, but here are some titles that I will definitely be reading next year:
- Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
- Fracture by Megan Miranda
- Everneath by Brodi Ashton
- Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
- Tempest by Julie Cross
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer
- The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg
- When the Sea is Rising Red by Cat Hellisen
- Article 5 by Kristen Simmons
- After the Snow by Sophie Crockett
- Innocent Darkness by Suzanne Lazear
- The Iron Wood by Megan Spooner
I am a lucky person for having already read a few titles, and I can highly recommend picking up Slide by Jill Hathaway (March) and Breathe by Sarah Crossan (Fall).
Of course I'm adding titles to the list and I might switch some of them around, but I am very excited about the books coming out in 2012. I wasn't really fully blogging when I signed up for last year's challenge and now that I'm more active in the blogging community, I know of more titles and more bloggers who are likely to know great books!
I will be updating my challenge progress on the tab above, called 'Challenges 2012'. I won't be doing any updates on the blog itself, so if you are curious about how I'm doing, just clicky the button above! I will be updating other challenges there as well.
Are you joining in for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge? What is your goal? What books are you looking forward to reading the most?
