2013 Debut Author Challenge

2012-debut-author-challengeI have a dream. I dream that one day people will be making their Debut Author to-read lists and MY book will be on them! Until then, I must support my fellow writers who have finally made it to the brink of their dreams and cannot wait for release dates to arrive this year.

Over at The Hobbitsies Book Blog, they are doing a 2013 Debut Writers Challenge, asking people to support and read at least 12 debut author books this year. I went through the list and there were so many goodies to choose from! Alas, I picked my 12 and have displayed them below for your viewing pleasure (because awesome book covers are one of my favorite things!) **Hint, click on the book cover to read the summary on Goodreads!

Level 2 by Lenore Applehans


The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd


Prophecy by Ellen Oh


Splintered by A.G. Howard


Pivot Point by Kasie West


Milo 2.0 by Debra Driza


The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett


The Legacy of the Clockwork Key by Kristin Bailey

Let the Sky Fall by Shannon Messenger

What will you be reading this year? Do you already have lists started? Any debut authors on there? Are you tired of all my questions? Ok, I will let you answer them then in the comments. πŸ™‚

    • It seems like I never have enough time to read everything I want to…there is always a full shelf of un-reads on my bookshelf and still I am always reserving things at the library!

    • I have never really made a reading list either until this one. Usually I just shuffle through what I have waiting at the library or on my to-read book shelf. But I do think it is important to support debuting authors so I made this list to remind myself of the ones I need to read πŸ™‚
