Hi there, everyone!  I decided to do a challenge, and this one looks right up my alley :D.  I love discovering new voices in YA.  A lot of times debuts are my favorites.  I don't know if that's b/c the authors just seem fresh to me or b/c they put everything they had--soul, passion, creativity--into that first book, but it's true: Debuts rock!!

My goal for this challenge is to read and review 12 YA debuts.  See that new page up there?  The one labeled DAC 2013?  Yep, that's there to keep me honest lol!  That way I'll have a written record of my goal (along with this post, of course) to keep track and to remind me to read on.

Here's my list:

The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
The Collector by Victoria Scott
Uses For Boys by Erica Lorraine Scheidt
Mila 2.0 by Debra Driza
Dualed by Elsie Chapman
Chantress by Amy Butler Greenfield
Reboot by Amy Tintera
Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger
45 Pounds (More or Less) by K.A. Barson
Reclaimed by Sarah Guillory
The Sweet Revenge of Celia Door by Karen Finneyfrock
The Madman's Daughter by Megan Sheperd
Looks pretty good, right?  Honestly, the books all sound amazing, so I don't think I'm going to have any trouble completing the challenge.  Not picking favorites or anything, but the one I'm looking forward to most...
Yeah, I'm not even going to front.  I've been dying to get my hands on this book since I found out Gail Carriger was trying her hand at YA.  The title, the description, that COVER!!  *faints*
Hope everyone has a great holiday,
