Chicks Love Lit, and here are the rules:
What books count towards the SRC?
Any second YA or MG book published by an author in 2013 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 2013 in your home country)! There is a Goodreads group for the challenge, which includes a selection of books that would count for the challenge – as you can see, there are probably many many books on that list you are planning on reading already :)
The list will be updated as I’m able, but please feel free to read ANY Sophomore book! It does not have to be the second book in a series, just the second YA/MG book the author has published, period.
When does the challenge run?
Books read before January 2014 count for this challenge. This includes books you may have access to now in ARC form!
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 2013. 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 e-mail me (shanynlee at gmail.com) and let me know if you’d like to be interviewed, featured, would like to offer a giveaway, etc.
How do I join?
Link your blog or Goodreads account here, and make a list of the sophomore novels you’re looking forward to :)
Ok, so I'll be signing up to read at least 10 Sophomore books in 2013, though I would like to at least have double that number! Some of the ones that I'm looking forward to are
-Everbound by Brodi Ashton
-Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
-Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
-Asunder by Jodi Meadows
-Dark Triumph by R.L. LaFevers
-Fragments by Dan Wells
-Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
-Breaking Point by Kristen Simmons
-Prodigy by Marie Lu
-Deep Betrayal by Anne Greenwood Brown
Yeah, there's some really fantastic books coming out in 2013 that are sophomore books (Probably because there were such fantastic debuts this year :) ) and I can't wait for them to come out! What about you guys? Happy reading!
