This year, to help increase the amount of books I read and to heighten my sense of accountability, I’ve decided to enter the Debut Author Challenge, hosted by Hobbitsies: a book blog.
The rules are simple and it’s free to sign up. Read at least 12 books the were released in 2013 by debut young adult or middle grade authors. That means that this is either the author’s first book, or their first book in the young adult/middle grade genre.
You can find all the information, as well as the button you see above on the Debut Author Challenge 2013 website.
If you’re not sure what book qualifies as a debut novel, you can join the DAC 2013 Goodreads Group and click on their bookshelf. So far, 137 books qualify for the challenge.
I will keep adding to this list as I find more debut novels I want to read (yes the list may pass the minimum of 12 books). I hope you guys decide to join this challenge as well so we can discover great new talents together.Debut Author Challenge 2013
