2011 Debut Author Challenge

I'm always up for a challenge and this is one of the best ones around! Kristi at The Story Siren is hosting the 2011 Debut Author Challenge. What is this challenge? The Debut Author Challenge highlights young adult and middle grade authors that are releasing their first novel in 2011. The challenge is to read at least twelve debut novels. I have read some wonderful debuts this year, and I sure that next year's new writers will be just as awesome! If you are interested in signing up, visit The Story Siren at

Some books that I plan to read for the challenge are:

XVI by Julia Karr
Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
What Can't Wait by Ashley Hope Perez
Those That Wake by Jesse Karp
Bumped by Megan McCafferty
The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski
The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner
Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach
Paper Covers Rock by Jenny Hubbard
Sister Mischief by Laura Goode
Never Eighteen by Megan Bostic
Memento Nora by Angie Smibert

As always, this list may change but this is what looks good so far! I just know that 2011 is going to filled with some fantastic stories and I can't wait to read them!
