The Story Siren is hosting a 2011 Debut Author Challenge for middle grade and young adult books. If you're interested in joining, check out her FAQ.
This will be my first year participating in a Debut Author Challenge so I'm really excited!
The purpose of the Debut Author Challenge is to read at least twelve books from new, up-and-coming authors.
These are the books I'm hoping to read in 2011:
The Latte Rebellion by Sarah Jamila Stevenson
Choker by Elizabeth Woods
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Timeless by Alexandra Monir
The False Princess by Eilis O'Neil
The Fourth Stall by Chris Rylander
Haven by Kristi Cook
Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison
Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton
Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
Ten Miles Past Normal by Frances O'Roark Dowell
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski
Sparrow Road by Sheila O'Connor
I'm sure there will be more, but there's not a lot of info about the books coming out after June, so I'm sure this list will get longer as 2011 progresses.
