2015 Debut Author Reading Challenge

Hey guys! Today I'm introducing a new challenge for 2015 to my blog:

 Debut Author Challenge! 
The reason this has come about is that I've been browsing through my Goodreads shelf for 2014 and noticed that I read a LOT of series or stick to the same authors that I've read numerous times before. I thought it would be a really great idea to start up a challenge that celebrates debut authors! They're the ones that most need our support in the early stages of their bookish careers, and I know I've read some cracking debut's this year and can't wait for more for 2015.

The Rules
1. This challenge will run from January 1st 2015 to December 31st 2015
2. The books have to be the debut book of an author, preferably 2014+ 
3. There will be a linky at the beginning of every month to post up your reviews/ posts on the books
4. Please link up your sign-up posts in the linky below and grab the badge for your blog! 
5. You can read as many or as little books as you like - that choice is yours
 6. You must have reviewed a debut author at least once to enter the Debut Author Challenge Giveaway

Giveaway you say? 
I've decided that, to celebrate those wonderful debut authors, I will be hosting a giveaway at the end of 2015 for all participants of the Debut Author Challenge! There will be options to add as many reviews as you like to the giveaway so the more debuts you read, the more chances you'll get to win! I promise I'll make it a good prize - more info on the prize to come! 

Levels
1 - 9 - Bronze Reader
10 - 19 - Silver Reader
20 - 29 - Gold Reader
30+ - Platinum Pro-Reader
