Okay gotta get in on this one. It’s an excuse to buy new books instead of trawling the 2nd-hand bookstore.
The original idea is over here – The Story Siren and the objective – “To read & review a minimum of twelve young adult or middle grade debut novels between the dates of January 1, 2012 – January 31, 2013.”
I think 12 is a good number for me, one YA a month will hit the spot. I’ll pick one from every month’s debuts.
So, here’s my list, although titles may change depending on availability
Jan: The Alchemy of Forever -Avery Williams
Feb: Born Wicked – Jessica Spotswood
March: Croak – Gina Damico
April: Kiss the Morning Star – Elissa Janine Hoole
May: The Nightmare Factory – Lucy Jones
June: The Shadows Cast by Stars – Catherine Knutsson
July: Something Strange and Deadly – Susan Dennard
August: Auracle – Gina Rosati
Sept: Touching the Surface – Kimberly Sabatini
Oct: Venom – Fiona Paul
Nov: Through to You – Emily Hainsworth
Dec: Pivot Point – Kasie West
