2012 Sophomore Reading Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for another 2012 Reading Challenge!!

When I was looking at my TBR list, I realized that there are a lot of 2011 debut novels that I want to read. When I came across this challenge which is being hosted by Chick Loves Lit, I thought it would be a great way to include the follow-ups to 2011 debuts!

Here are the details copied from Chick Loves Lit's blog:


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 publish in 2012 in your home country)! I have started a Goodreads list HERE – as you can see, there are probably many many books on that list you are planning on reading already :)

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 my favorite challenge – it allows me to find many new authors that I love. What better way to support these authors than to read their next published book?

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 blog where you post reviews in English.

What should I do if I’m an author coming out with a sophomore novel?

I would love to feature you on my blog! Please contact me via THIS FORM or by e-mail (shanynlee at

How do I join?

Link your blog or Goodreads account below, and make a list of the sophomore novels you’re looking forward to :)

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