2011 YA Debut Author Challenge

I am signing up for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge hosted by The Story Siren. Starting Jan 2011 and ending Dec 31 2011, I will read, at the very least, 12 YA novels written by debut authors. I'm hoping to read more than 12 though, and I will count them towards my annual goal of reading at least 5o books a year. To learn more about the Challenge and sign up, you can go here.

I have chosen a few titles from The Story Siren's spreadsheet of debut author's to check out and have started a list:

XVI - Julia Karr - Jan 6
Across the Universe - Beth Revis - Jan 11
Other Words for Love - Lorraine Zago Rosenthal - Jan 11
Where I Belong - Gwendolyn Heasley - Feb 8
Exposed - Kimberly Marcus - Feb 22
Falling Under - Gwen Hayes - March 1
Unlocked - Ryan G Van Cleave - March 1
Ten Miles Past Normal - Frances O'Roark Dowell - March 22
Bumped - Megan McCafferty - April 26

I will keep updating as I do more research and as some of the debut titles add more information to the book descriptions on Amazon.

In my next post I will update with my other upcoming "books to read" and their release dates.
