Kristi from The Story Siren is the host of this fab idea which challenges readers to read books from debut authors. Now you may be wondering, what exactly is this Debut Author Challenge? Well Kristi has broken it down on her blog here, but I'll give you a quick run-through of it.
The 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 rules: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
The book must be a young adult or middle grade title
The book must be the author’s YA or MG debut, released in 2012
There will be a traveling ARC tour (follow this blog to sign up for said tours), a Debut Author Newsletter, Giveaways, and Mini-Challenges.
If this looks like something you'd be interested in doing, be sure to SIGN UP RIGHT HERE!
You can find the complete list of Debut Authors here on Goodreads.
Also, this challenge is open internationally & more info on the UK/Ireland, Canada, & Australia/New Zealand debut lists can be found here.
Are you signed up & all set on what books you want to read towards the challenge next year? Then make sure you grab a button to display on your blog (made by me!) which can be found here.
Good luck to everyone!!
