Debut Author Challenge 2012

Since I couldn't find any debut YA book birthdays today, I figured I'd bring you up to speed on my 2012 debut author challenge goals... The debut author challenge is hosted by The Story Siren each year and encourages readers to try out books by new authors.  I LOVE THIS!


To read & review a minimum of twelve young adult or middle grade debut novels between the dates of January 1st 2012 - January 31st 2013.


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.

So far, I've read 21 debuts in 2011.  Not too bad... Here's a list of some YA books that I hope to read in 2012:
Everneath - Brodi Ashton
Touching the Surface - Kim Sabatini
Renegade - J.A. Souders
Incarnate - Jodi Meadows
Sweet Evil - Wendy Higgins
Auracle - Gina Rosati
Of Poseidon - Anna Banks
Harbinger - Sara Wilson Bienne
Elemental - Emily White
Illusminate - Aimee Agresti
Slide - Jill Hathaway
Fracture - Megan Miranda
Born Wicked - Jessica Spotswood
When the Sea is Rising Red - Cat Hellisen
Grace Mercy - Robin LaFevers
A Witch in Winter - Ruth Warburton
The Demon Catchers of Milan  - Kay Beyer

Sure, it's ambitious, but I'm sure I can do it. Plus, these all look SO GOOD.  2012 is shaping up to be a great year and I personally can't wait.

There are so many of these that I want to read! I probably won't commit to the challenge, though, because my library doesn't get very many new YA books.
