Introducing the 2012 Standalone Challenge!!!


It seems like every new release is part of a trilogy or series. But there are quite a few standalones releasing next year as well - they're there if you look for them! So why not have a Standalone Reading Challenge?


Hafsah from IceyBooks and I, are hosting the 2012 Standalone Reading Challenge (SARC)! We really wanted to start a challenge for 2012, and when we talked about it on Twitter, we came up with this idea...


Read on to find out what the challenge is, how you can participate - and why!


Why a Standalone Reading Challenge?


There's a challenge for Debuts, there's a challenge for "Sophomore" books, why not a challenge for Standalones?


So what's the challenge?


To read 15 standalone YA books in 2012!
What books count towards the 2012 Standalone Reading Challenge?


Any Young Adult standalone book that is released between December 27, 2011  and December 31, 2012. Any format (paperback, hardcover, e-book, ARC) counts, but they must be read during 2012!


Where can I find books for this challenge?


We have started a list for you HERE! Please add to this list if you know of another standalone book that we missed. Also, let us know if we made a mistake and one of those titles  is not a standalone.


Also, you can print out THIS PDF with a bunch of standalones. If you see a mistake or would like to add to the list, please contact me. 



I'm an author with a standalone novel coming out in 2012!!!


It would be so super spectacular if you'd like to either donate a book/swag or sign up for a promotional post! You can fill out the form HERE


Who can participate?


Anyone with a blog or a Goodreads account where they are able to post reviews!




Why should I sign up?


There will be a lot of fun with this challenge (and you just love the hosts ;) ! There will be periodic prize packs (more info to come) given out to participators, as well as fun posts from and interviews with authors with standalone books coming out in 2012.


Sign me up!


All you have to do is link to your blog or Goodreads account below to the page where you list the books that you plan on reading for the challenge! Be sure that the account you chose will be where you post your (English) reviews as the year goes on.

  6. Looking through the PDF list, in February you have listed The Other Life by Suzanne Winnacker, but that is the first book of a series, there are plans for a sequel.

    I think I'll be reading it anyways, though, it looks good!
