2012 Debut Author Challenge

The 2012 Debut Author Challenge is almost here, so if you're excited for it, head on over to The Story Siren and sign up!  I can't wait!  I've been perusing the Apocalypsies site, and I think 2012 is going to by an EPIC year for readers of YA and MG novels.  This freshman class of authors is looking good!

The objective of this challenge is to read and review at least 12 books by 2012 debut authors.  There's more info about it HERE, so check it out and support the newbies!  Looking at the list on Goodreads, I can already tell that 12 books will be a piece of cake!  I already have at least twice that on my TBR...  So, without further ado, my (preliminary) list:

Thanks for visiting my blog! I adore comments since they make me feel special and loved, just please don't spam me. I'm not interested in vacation offers, millions of dollars from Nigeria, or anything not book related!

Also, this is an award-free blog. As flattered as I am, I just don't have time. I'm happy if I have time to post all of my reviews on time, and am a momma of three to boot, but I appreciate the thoughts! XO
