2013 Debut Author Challenge

2013 Debut Author Challenge Banner
hosted by Tara at The Hobbitsies

The objective of Debut Author Challenge is to read and review at least 12 YA or middle grade debut novels published in 2013. For more information or to sing up go to the Hobbitsies Official 2013 Debut Author Challenge page.

Debut Author Challenge is such a wonderful idea, because it helps us discover new authors. And I don't know about you, but I get intimidated when people recommend me a series that already has more than 5 or (heaven help me) 10 books. Debut Author Challenge helps me keep up with great new series from the beginning. ; )

I will set a modest goal for myself: 12 24 books (one two book per month). But, I won't kid myself, you and I both know that I will read more. :D (And if you noticed I already increased my number of books. There are so many awesome debuts this year!)

This page will be updated as I read/review/buy books that are eligible for this challenge.
