2012 Debut Author Challenge

2011 was the first year I participated in The Story Siren's Debut Author Challenge. I vowed to read at least twelve debut authors, and I ended up with thirteen. Not as good of a showing as I was hoping, but hopefully I can double that in 2012.

These are the debut authors I read and reviewed in 2011:
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver (not first book, but first middle grade)
Bad Taste in Boys by Carrie Harris
Die for Me by Amy Plum
Moonglass by Jessi Kirby
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Virtuosity by Jessica Martinez
The Time-Traveling Fashionista by Bianca Turetsky
Rival by Sara Bennett Wealer
Wither by Lauren Destefano
Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison
Across the Universe by Beth Revis

 This is the list of 2012 debuts I hope to read this year. It's only fourteen so far, but I know it will grow.
Tempest by Julie Cross
Fracture by Megan Miranda
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
Article 5 by Kristen Simmons
Slide by Jill Hathaway
The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg
Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne
Level 2 by Lenore Appelhans
Breaking Beautiful by Jennifer Shaw Wolf
May B by Caroline Starr Rose
Welcome Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
Everything You Need to Survive the Apocalypse by Lucas Klauss
Insignia by S.J. Kincaid
Cross My Heart by Sasha Gould
