I usually stay away from new authors until I know their books are good. Hopefully this challenge will get me out of my comfort zone and read them before they get huge buzz. I’ll think of it as an adventure! Maybe it’s good, maybe it’s not – who knows! :)
For the challenge, you have to read 12 books by debut authors who are being published in 2012. I’ll add the books I’ve read to this post as the year goes on.
- Halflings by Heather Burch
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer
- Forbidden by Syrie and Ryan M. James
- Everneath by Brodi Ashton
- Above World by Jenn Reese
- The Vicious Deep by Zoraida Cordova
- Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
- Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne
- Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
- Insignia by S.J. Kincaid
- Forsaken by Lisa M. Stasse
- A Breath of Eyre by Marie Mont
*I will no longer be participating in The Story Siren’s Debut Author Challenge, but I still plan to read 12 debut YA authors this year.
