We're helping debut authors out with exposure while also getting the chance to check their new releases out for ourselves, but I think this goes for everyone, I managed to find out about a ton of titles over the years through this challenge only because other participants had posted their reviews. So you can definitely expect an overflowing amount of recommendations that you'll want to add to your TBR lists.
The challenge is asking each participant to come up with twelve titles (debuts obviously) to read and review in 2013. You can read as many as you want but you'll only be eligible for the grand prize at the end of the challenge if you're read the minimum of twelve or more.
The rules are laid out very clearly on the challenge page over at Hobbitsies but basically the only titles that will count are YA or middle grade 2013 debut reads. The challenge goes from January 1, 2013 thru January 31, 2014 so that all the December debuts can be read as well. Your reading and reviews must all fall into this period of time. Each review equates to one entry in the monthly prize pack, so the more reviews you post each month, the more entries you've made yourself eligible for within the contest.
So I'm starting to get my list together and I'm saying it right now, there is just no way I'll be able to limit myself to only twelve titles for this challenge. Not sure how many I'll be able to get through but I'm going to compile my list and do my best to work my way through as many as I can and see how it all turns out! Let me know if you guys are signing up and what you'll be reading, recommendations and titles I can add to my own list are always more than appreciated!!!
Happy Reading and Good Luck!!!
