2011 Debut Author Challenge

Saturday, January 1, 2011

I am signing up for the 2011 Debut Author Challenge!  The 2011 Debut Author Challenge is hosted by Kirsti at The Story Siren.  The goal is read to 12 debut author young adult or middle grade titles within 2011.   

This is my third challenge for 2011 including the Aussie YA Reading Challenge 2011 (which I host) and The Contemps Challenge.  The debut author challenge crosses over into both of those two challenges so I should be able to complete all three.

Here is my list of the titles I plan on reading (although I hope to read a lot more):

1. Julia Karr - XVI
2. Gwendolyn Heasley - Where I Belong
3. Courtney Allison Moulton - Angelfire
4. Sara Bennett-Wealer - Rival
5. Kirsten Hubbard - Like Mandarin
6. K. Ryer Breese - Future Imperfect
7. Josephine Angelini - Starcrossed
8. Jessi Kirby - Moonglass
9. Amy Plum - Die For Me
10. Veronica Roth - Divergent
11. Carrie Harris - Bad Taste in Boys
12. Helen Landalf - Broken Wings
13. Stasia Ward Kehoe - Audition
14. Marie Lu - Legend
15. Cat Clarke - Entangled

Thank you to Kirsti for hosting such a wonderful challenge!
