I have decided to participate in the 2012 Debut Author Challenge which is being hosted by Kristi at TheStorySiren.com. Thank you Kristi for hosting it again this year!
My 2012 DAC post will end up in the archives and this year I don’t plan on updating the original post, just this DAC page. But at the end of 2012 I will create a new post talking about my 2012 DAC experience and listing all the books I’ve read/hoped to have read, etc.
About the 2012 DAC
It is a year-long challenge that begins on January 1, 2012 and ends on January 31, 2013. (It has been extended a month so December 2012 debuts can count toward this year’s challenge.)
The goal is to read twelve novels (at least) from debut Young Adult or Middle Grade authors. (Click the button, above, for more info on The Story Siren’s website.)
The deadline to join is May 31, 2012 and in order to sign up you must have a blog to post reviews or you must be a member of Goodreads. And all reviews must be written in English.
My goal for 2012
This year I’ve decided to up the original count to twenty debut books, but I hope to read at least thirty. Although, if I do end up reading a few 2012 Debut Authors in December 2011 they won’t get counted toward the challenge and I’ll have to revise my list.

If/when I read any additional DAC books, I’ll be adding them to the list as I read and review them.
