For 2012 I am partaking in a few challenges. The British Books challenge is always a great one, I took part in it in 2011 but kept forgetting to post links to my reviews but I am going to try my hardest to keep linking them up for 2012. I am also taking part in the Just Contemporary Challenge and the 2012 Debut Author Challenge. There are more about each of them below.
This is a challenge to read 12 books by British Authors in the year. Last year I lost count at 20 and I only started the challenge late so I really think this wont be difficult, however the lovely Kirsty who is hosting the challenge has mentioned extra prizes for people who get over 50 British Author books! I’m not sure what I’ll be reading at the minute but I’ll update the page at the top of my blog as and when I’ve read them. For now here are a few books by awesome British authors that I will be reading!
- Frostfire – Zoe Marriott
- Emma Hearts LA – Keris Staintion
- Kiss, Date, Love, Hate – Luisa Plaja
This is hosted by the awesome Ashley at Books from Bleh to Basically Amazing and the challenge is to read more, more contemporary of any kind. There are two options, one is to sign up to read more contemp in general and the second is signing up to read more sub-genres of contemp. Im just going to go for option one and I will be aiming for 24 contemporary books.
2012 Debut Author Challenge
This is hosted yearly by The Story Siren and I love the sound of it last year but I didn’t sign up. I’ve decided to sign up this year and I cant wait to be a part of this. The aim is to read a minimum of 12 YA or MG books by debut authors between January 1st 2012 and January 31st 2013. Again I’ll be updating the page above with debut authors read as I read them but I have no idea yet!
