Making the Plunge: Debut Author Challenge

Alright, I've done it. I've selected my 12 books for the Debut Author Challenge, hosted by Hobitsies. In case you haven't heard of it (which I'm pretty sure all of you, my lovely readers and friends, have), participants have to read and review 12 books by 2013 debut authors to both help those authors get exposure and help other readers find their books! You'll be happy to see that I included at least one contemporary on this list.

Sounds pretty awesome to me. Sounds like something I'd want YA readers/writers/bloggers to do when I finally have a debut. Also, these books look fabulous.

And here they are, my picks for 2013!

Altered, Jennifer Rush, Jan. 1
Splintered, A.G. Howard, Jan. 1

Prophecy, Ellen Oh, Jan. 2
Broken, A.E. Rought, Jan. 8
Nobody But Us, Kristin Halbrook, Jan. 29

The Madman's Daughter, Megan Shepherd,  Jan. 29

All Our Yesterdays

And there you have it! I know a few of you are participating. Please put a link in the comments if you are so I can compare our lists. :) Maybe we can even work out reading them around the same time!


  1. We have a number of the same ones on our lists. And I agree wholeheartedly about TAKEN. :)

  2. Love your choices! The ones you chose that weren't on my list are still ones I'd like to read, but my list was already out of control. Too many great new releases this year!

  3. Yep, we definitely have some matching choices... I can't wait for some of these, and to see how our opinions compare! (Oh, I've read NOBODY BUT US and LOVED it!)

  4. Brilliant choices! A lot of these I've been waiting for for a long, long time!
