2012 Young Adult & Middle Grade Debut Author Challenge

The only 2012 challenge I’m participating in is The Story Siren’s Debut Author Challenge. There are tons of other great challenges out there that I would love to join but I’m just too busy to try to keep track of multiple challenges.

This is the 4th year Kristi has hosted this challenge. To participate you commit to read at least 12 Young Adult or Middle Grade debut books that are released in 2012. There are currently over 900 readers signed up to participate in this challenge.

I signed up for last year’s 2011 challenge and barely made it.  I think I read exactly a dozen 2011 debut books. Hopefully I’ll get more than 12 read this year!

Starting this week I will also be hosting one or two of these authors on my blog each week. I’ve got a stack of 2012 debut author books sitting by my bed which I hope to get read and reviewed soon.

So which of these debut books are you most excited to read?

Which have you already read and loved?

As the year goes on and more debut books are announced or become available I’ll try to update this list.
