Once again, I am going to sign up for the Debut Author Challenge hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren as I have managed to complete it the last two years and it’s always fun to discover new authors. Here’s what it’s all about directly from The Story Siren:
· 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 2013 extension is so that December debuts can be read and count toward the challenge.
RULES & 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 in may 31, 2012
· Must be a young adult or middle grade title.
· Must be the authors YA or MG debut, released in 2012.
