Hi guys! I haven't really gotten around blogging this week which sucks beacause when I want to I'm usually tired or busy with school. As for last year, when I was pretty new to blogging, I didn't really have any Reading Challenges except reading the lastest new book I MUST get my hands on. ;)
So........I decided on Reading Challenges as goals for this year!

2012 Debut Author Challenge
I had to do the 2012 Debut Author Challenge! And Kristi over at The Story Siren hostets this challenge.

1.) To read & review a minimum of twelve young adult or middle grade debut novels between the dates of January 1, 2012 – January 31, 2013.*
*The 2013 extension is so that December Debuts can be read and count toward the challenge.\
2.) Any advance reader copies you read from 2012 BEFORE the January 1st start date DO NOT count toward the challenge! 
3.) You can read twelve books in one month, or one book a month. It doesn’t matter as long as you have 12 read by the end of the year! 
4.) Must be a young adult or middle grade title.
5.) Must be the author’s YA or MG debut, released in 2012.
Check The Story Siren for more info!

So much good YA, 2012 debuts out this year I can't wait to dive right into them!

That's all the challenges so far...but I'll update between here and there to add new goals and I'll also plan to cross out the books I read to see how far I am :D Feel free to link your challenges for 2012 in the comments!
