My list of books for Debut Author Challenge 2012



This is being hosted by Kristi  over at at The Story Siren. This is the first Challenge that I am taking part in, and it seems really fun. I love discovering new authors, and also authors who are new at writing in the genre.
The challenge will run from January 1, 2012 to January 31, 2013 and the goal is to read 12 YA/MG books that are from debut authors (or authors new to that genre) between that time. If you want more info you can find it at The Story Siren.


There are so many books that sound really great that are coming out next year. It was really hard to narrow down my list, but I also have to keep in mind there are a lot of sequels to books I have read coming out next year too, and I need time to read those. Also new books coming out from non-debut authors that I am looking  forward to. So my list is as follows. (with links to Goodreads so you can add them to your list if you want)

  1. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi- 1/3/12
  2. Everneath by Brodi Ashton- 1/24/12
  3. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows- 1/31/12
  4. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood- 2/7/12
  5. Undeadly by Michele Vail- 2/28/12
  6. Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins- 5/1/12
  7. Of Poseidon by Anna Banks-5/22/12
  8. Mystique by Shari Arnold- spring 2012
  9. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard- 7/24/12
  10. Auracle by Gina Rosati- 8/7/12
  11. The Treachery of Beautiful Things by Ruth Francis- 8/16/12
  12. Touched by Corrine Jackson- December of 2012
So that is my list of books I will be reading for DAC 2012. It was really hard to try to pick 12 out of the wonderful list of DA's books. If I have time I would like to read more too, but those are the 12 I have chosen. Some of the other ones I would like to read if I have time are:

There are many more that sound great, but I can't read all of them. What books do you have on your list? Leave me your link if you want me to check out yours. I am really looking forward to the DAC 2012. Happy reading to everyone participating. :)

  1. I'm definitely curious about Under the Never Sky. It's not on my list yet, I'm waiting to hear what others think cause I'm not totally sold on it! But we do have several in common! 2012 is going to be a great year for debuts, I think!

I love comments! I will try to respond to as many as I can. I read every one of them, even if I do not respond to them all.
