This year I've been participating in the 2010 Debut Author Challenge and it's been a blast, so of course I decided to sign up again for this coming year's 2011 Debut Author Challenge!!

Hosted by The Story Siren, the challenge is to read at least 12 books by authors debuting their first middle grade or young adult book in 2011. My list of books I'd like to read for this challenge in 2011 (so far) are:

  1. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
  2. XVI by Julia Karr
  3. The False Princess by Eilis O'Neal
  4. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
  5. Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
  6. A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford
  7. Wake Unto Me by Lisa Cach
  8. Wither by Lauren DeStefano
  9. Clarity by Kim Harrington
  10. Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker
  11. Hourglass by Myra McIntyre
  12. Die for Me by Amy Plum
