Okay, after commenting on two or three posts about the 2013 Debut Author Challenge saying I didn't have the time to do it...I made the mistake of taking a look at the list of books that would be eligible. And after I jotted down about fifty titles that I thought might interest me, and culling that list on Goodreads...I still have about 40 titles that interest me. So I figured, twelve of those? Yeah, I can do that.
Here's my top twelve, as of right now, in order of their release (at least according to Goodreads:)
Splintered by A.G. Howard, out 1/1/13
Level 2 by Lenore Applehans, out 1/15/13
Cinders & Sapphires by Leila Rasheed, out 1/22/13
The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd, out 1/29/12
Strands of Bronze and Gold by Jane Nickerson, out 3/12/13
In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters, out 4/2/13
Taken by Erin Bowman, out 4/16/13
Belle Epoque by Elizabeth Ross, out 6/11/13
Starglass by the very cool Phoebe North, out 7/23/13
Control by the awesome Lydia Kang, out 12/19/13
Also two without covers:
Not a Drop To Drink by Mandy McGinnis, out 9/9/13
Landry Park by Bethany Hagen (can't find a release date at the moment.)
Now, all I need to do is read non-stop three or four days a week, and I should be all set!
