Debut Author Challenge (DAC) 2012

Okay, so the Debut Author Challenge is a challenge originating on The Story Siren where you are challenged to read 12 Debut* Novels between the beginning of Jan and end of Dec. I found it a little hard to navigate and understand at first, but once you figure it out, you're set!
*Debut: a first public appearance (a new product).

Challenge Objective:
  • To read and review a minimum of twelve Young Adult (YA) or Middle Grade (MG) debut novels between the dates Jan 1, 2012 - Jan 31, 2013*
    *The 2013 extension is so that December Debuts (books released in December) can be read and count toward the challenge.
Rules and Guidelines:
  • Any Advance Reader copies (copy of a book recieved before the release) you read before the 2012 start date do NOT count towards the challenge!
  • You can read the 12 novels in one month or 12 months - it doesn't matter so long as you get through them all!
  • You must have a blog to post your reviews or become a member of Goodreads. Youtube book-reviewers count too!
  • Your blog / vlog (video blog) must be written / recorded in English.
  • Deadline to join is May 31, 2012
Book Guidelines:
  • All books must a be Young Adult or Middle Grade title.
  • It must be the authors debut in YA or MG (they cannot have previously had a YA / MG novel published) BUT the author can still qualify if previously published material is a Child or Adult title.
  • The book must be released in 2012
