Last year (it's funny to say "last year" when last year was just yesterday), Leslie and I read 14 debut novels each which means we went over our goal of reading 12 debuts each. This year, 2012, our goal to read 12 YA debuts but we are going to challenge ourselves and aim for 15 each by the end of this year.
We will once again list the 2012 debuts we read on our left sidebar and we will be linking our reviews if/when we post.
Besides the Debut Author Challenge, I am also participating in the Goodreads 2012 Reading Challenge. I love the Goodreads challenge because it's a good way to keep track of the books I read and because it lets you know if you're behind your goal, it helps you pace yourself.
Fellow bookaholics, if you love YA/MG books you might want more info and sign up (if you haven't already) for one or both of the challenges, go here for all the rules, list of debut books and other Debut Author Challenge 2012 info and for the Goodreads challenge go here.
