challenge rules & guidelines
You must have place to post your thoughts on the books you’ve read for the challenge. Be it a blog, goodreads account, youtube page, tumblr, amazon account, etc.
Due to past demand there will be no deadline to join the challenge, but please be sure to give yourself enough time to complete the challenge.
The 2014 debuts must be read between January 1, 2014 – January 31, 2015. The extra month is to allow participants time to read December debuts.
Each review equals one entry into the monthly prize packs.
must be a young adult, middle grade or new adult title.
must be the authors ya/mg/na debut, released in 2014.*
*If an author has a previously published adult or children’s book and this is their first ya/mg/na title it counts towards the challenge. In addition if an author has a previously self pubbed ya/mg/na and is now with a traditional publisher it counts toward the challenge. Self published debuts do not count toward the challenge at this time.
I’m still working on the spreadsheet. Printable too!
I just started working on the Goodreads list, feel free to check that out and vote for your favorite titles. Beware that anyone can add a title to the listopia… I’ll try to keep the list updated, but double check that the book listed is a debut.
