2013 Debut Author Challenge


The Debut Author Challenge is hosted by Hobbitsies this year! 

The goal of this challenge is to read at least 12 books by authors writing their debut middle grade or young adult novel. The challenge runs from January 1, 2013 to January 31, 2014, with the extra month to give us time to read the end of year debuts. I hesitated over this one because I’m trying to keep the acquisition of new books to a minimum, but ultimately I couldn’t resist. I love supporting new authors too much! 

This year, in addition to the monthly link-ups, the monthly and grand prize giveaways are back! Every review gets you entered for the monthly prize. New this year is a Goodreads group where you can track your progress and chat with participants.
