I’m participating in the Story Siren’s Debut Author Challenge. The guidelines are below:
To read and 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.
RULES AND GUIDELINES
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.
As many of you know, I’ve run monthly One Sentence Debut Reviews, covering three books each month (technically, I’ve only done 10/12 months, but you get the idea). Next year, for sanity purposes, I will lump my debut reads into three posts for spring, summer, and fall releases. I will continue to give away bookmarks/swag for books debuting in 2012.
Anyone else participating this year?
oooh! This is the first I’ve heard of it, but I’m all over it. Yes, I’ll be taking the challenge!

Just signed up! I’ve read so many debuts this year I’m hoping it won’t be hard to keep with it. 😉

Terry and Tere (fun to see your names together), so glad you’re signing up. I ended up reading many more than the required twelve. Looking forward to seeing what you read!
