2012 Reading Challenges

In  addition to participating in the 2012 Debut Author Challenge, which I host, I’m really excited to participate in some other reading challenges happening next year!

But first… Let me list the books I’m hoping to tackle for the 2012 DAC!

List Key:

BOLD: Own ARC/Book
Italicized: Read but not reviewed

1. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
2. Everneath by Brodi Ashton
3. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
5. Tempest by Julie Cross
6. Above by Leah Bobet

8. Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne
9. The Alchemy of Forever by Avery Williams
10. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
11. Article 5 by Kristen Simmons
12. Slide by Jill Hathaway 

And I’m sure at least 40 more books will be added to this list in the course of the year. (I’m not even kidding!)

The 2012 YA/MG Fantasy Challenge hosted by The Book Cellar.

Fantasy is my favorite genre, yet it seems that I don’t read enough of that, here’s hoping this challenge helps me remedy that!

My Fantasy Challenge List:

1. Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers
2. The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen

The Sophomore Reading Challenge hosted by Chick Loves Lit

One of the things that I love about the Debut Author Challange (and the reason I host it) is because I always discover from FABULOUS authors. And now an excuse to read those authors I discovered again, yay!

2. Fever by Lauren Desefano
3. A Million Suns by Beth Revis
4. Dreamless by Josephine Angelini

The Completely Contemp Challenge hosted by Chick Loves Lit
