Reading Challenges for 2012

When I started blogging in April 2011 it seemed as though it was too late to enter any of the challenges. But ever since I have been looking forward to join a few of them for 2012 and here is my post to tell you about them:

Of course I'll join the Debut Author Challenge which is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren. For more information check out this post.

01. Everneath by Brodi Ashton
02. Halflings by Heather Burch
03. Incarnate by Jodi Meadows
04. Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale

09. The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg
10. Where It Began by Ann Redisch Stampler
11. Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig

I'll also join the 2012 YA Mythology Challenge which is hosted by Tiffany from For Those About To Read. I love mythology novels and I'm definitely looking forward to read a few of them! For more information check out this page.

I'm also joining the YA Contemporary Challenge 2012 which is hosted by Katie from Katie's Book Blog. I'm going to start by listing five books (level 1), but maybe I can change that list into ten books later in 2012. For more infomation about this challenge check this page.

I can't believe that all of these (and more) are sitting on my shelf right now and I haven't read them yet! Shame on me. I think this is a very necessary challenge for 2012. Especially considering all the other books I want to buy.

These are all of the challenges I'm planning to participate in. Will you be a part of any of these? What do you plan to read in 2012? 



  1. I'm taking part in the Debut Author Challenge. The TBR Pile Reading Challenge sounds good since I have so many books I still have to read so I might sign-up for that one too.

  2. I'm doing the Debut Author's Challenge and the YA Mythology Challenge as well! I have high hopes of completing both, as well as the other two I've taken part in :)

  3. I'm still not sure if I'll take part in any challenges, but the ones that you have chosen look like they'll be great fun. Good luck with them!

  4. Ohhh, so many challenges! I just finished Solstice by PJ Hoover, a fantastic read I can only recommend for the Mythology Challenge!

  5. What a great list of challenges! I am joining in on the Debut and Contemp challenges for sure! I am actually hosting a new challenge called YA Saves Reading Challenges - check it out!

  6. Hi Carina,
    Thank you so much for including Where It Began on your 2012 Debut Author Challenge list! Several of your selections are very high on my list, too, and I'm looking forward to reading my way through 2012.

  7. Good selection of challenges! I'm taking part in three, which you can view here,
    It looks like 2012 is going to be an excellent year!

  8. I'm in the TBR and DAC challenge. I haven't heard of the Mythology one though, I'm going too look in on it.

    You'll have some great read this year.
