Reading Song of the Day: “One More Time With Feeling” by Regina Spektor
Soooo, we just rejoiced from finishing the 2011 Debut Author Challenge last week. Yet, we’re ready to get back into it again. That’s right, The Story Siren
is doing it again in 2012, and of course, we’re on board. You wanna participate, too? There’s only a few rules. Like to hear them? Here they go:
1.) Read and review at least twelve middle grade and young adult novels by January 31st, 2013.
2.) Review the books on your blog or using sites like Goodreads.com or Amazon.
3.) The book you read MUST be the author’s FIRST middle grade or young adult debut novel in the year 2012.
For more information on the rules and to sign up, click here. The Story Siren will tell you all about it 😀
This time, we’re doing things a little differently. We’re going to have OUR OWN SEPARATE LISTS *gasp*. Some books we BOTH want to read, so you’ll see them twice, but overall–we’re branching out and completing the challenge double time!
We’ll EACH read at least twelve new books from the peeps who have been dubbed “The Apocolpysies”. These are the lucky folks who are debuting as an author next year. And we couldn’t be more excited for them!!! We also couldn’t be more excited to read some of these outstanding novels. With that being said, here are the lists of books that we plan to read for the 2012 Debut Author Challenge:
1.) Cinder by Marissa Meyer– January 3rd, 2012
by KM Walton-January 3rd, 2012
13.) If I Lie
by Corrine Jackson– September 4th, 2012
by Erin Lange–Fall 2012
by Amy Carol Reeves- April 8th, 2012
by Kathleen Peacock- May 8th, 2012
by Fiona Paul–October 30th, 2012
by Sarah Crossan–Fall 2012
That’s it! We sooooo can’t wait to start reading these books!!! We may read more or change our list as the year goes along. We shall see! In the meantime, are YOU going to participate? If so, which books are you really looking forward to reading??
