2016 Debut Author Challenge


I've thought about joining a few book challenges for 2016, and this one seemed right up my street! I want to support debut authors as much as I can, and I hope to read at least 12 books this year!

Challenge Objectives:
 - To introduce readers to this year’s wonderful group of debut authors.
 - To challenge readers to read 12 or more (or less! It’s up to you!) middle grade, young adult, and new adult debuts this year.

Challenge Rules:
 - You must post your thoughts on each debut book you read in order for it to count towards the challenge. You can post anywhere: your blog, Goodreads, Amazon, YouTube, Tumblr, etc.
 - You can join the challenge whenever you want.
 - The debuts must have a publishing date in 2016 and must have been read between January 1, 2016 and January 31, 2017 (this extra month allows readers adequate time to read December debuts) in order to count.
 - Each review gives you an entry into the monthly prize pack drawings. Make sure you post the links to my monthly link-ups. I always post these link-ups on the first day of the month.
 - This challenge is open internationally, as are the monthly prize packs.
 - I don’t care what language you write your reviews in, I just need to know which book you have reviewed so I can verify your entry. When you post your link, please include the title in English.
 - Use the hashtag #2016DebAuthC so we can all see what everyone’s up to!

Well there's 17 already! I've actually read a 2016 debut - Firsts - but unfortunately it doesn't count :(

Thank you, Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl, for setting up this challenge!

  1. I saw this last week and I am thinking that I should sign up and do this challenge too. I just don't want to commit! There are so many amazing titles that you plan to read here! I cannot wait to read Blackhearts! :)

    1. I know what you mean about not wanting to commit - I've seen a ton of challenges that interest me, but I'm scared I won't be in the mood for them. At least this way, they're books I'm already planning on reading! I got Blackhearts via EW just the other day, so I can't wait to start it!
