the Sophomore Reading Challenge 2012

Blogger and owner of Chick Loves Lit, Shanyn has created the Sophomore Reading Challenge (SRC), which is a reading challenge dedicated to the second book written by authors in the 2012 publication year! Books can be a continuation of a series, the beginning of a new series, or a standalone - the only requirement is that it is a Y.A. and the book is their SECOND book published.


What books count towards the SRC?
Any second YA or MG book published by an author in 2012 counts - it can be the second in a series, a new series, or a standalone. The only requirement is that it is the SECOND book the author has published in the YA or MG realm (and it must be published in 2012 in your home country!) Shanyn has stared a Goodreads list HERE - check it out if you're having trouble choosing some 2012 publications.

When does the challenge run?
Books read before January 2013 count for this challenge.

Why should I join this challenge?
Reading debut novels is AWESOME. It is by far one of my favourite challenges - it allows me to find new authors that I love. What better way to support these authors than to read their next publication?

What are the guidelines of the challenge?
Your challenge is to read 10 sophomore YA/MG novels in 2012. To officially participate, you need a Goodreads account OR a blog where you can post reviews in English.

How do I join?
Link your blog or Goodreads account @ Chick Loves Lit, and make a list of the sophomore novels you're looking forward to reading in 2012.

There will be prize packs given away to challenge participants throughout the next year. You will receve an automatic entry for signing up to participate - options for additional entries will be announced at the time of the giveaway.

Author Guidelines: What should I do if I'm an author coming out with a sophomore novel?
