Other 2012 Reader Challenges #1: Debut Author Challenge hosted by The Story Siren

So I've gone a little crazy with all the reader challenges the last few days.  It seems every one I come across I sign up for, so I should probably stop that.  For the next couple of days, I'll be putting up posts for each challenge in case you're interested in join me in any.  The first is The Story Siren's Debut Author Challenge.  There are already a bajillion people signed up for this challenge, so I think you should all join too!

The Challenge: Read a minimum of 12 young adult or middle grade debut novels between January 1, 2012 and January 31, 2013

The Rules:
- You have to post your reviews on your own blog and/or Goodreads

- Reviews have to be in English

- Deadline to join is May 31, 2012

Book Guidelines:

- Must be a YA or MG title released in 2012

- The author can still qualify if they have another book published if it's targeted to adults or children.  If they have a YA or MG title already released, the book doesn't count.


Kristi has joined forces with a group of other awesome bloggers to set up some really helpful benefits to joining this challenge, including setting up 2012 ARC Blog Tours, giveaways, creating a monthly newsletter and putting together a list of 2012 debuts.  There are even mini-challenges inside of the giant challenge.  It's like 13 challenges in ONE!  You can read more about what they have going on here.

Seriously sign up.  If you haven't already, I mean.
