2011 Debut Author Challenge

 The first time I heard of this challenge was this year, but I'd only had my blog for a few months so I didn't really want to commit to anything. But now I think I'm ready! Not to mention I've been reading debuts all year so I probably could have participated anyway. This challenge is being hosted by Kristi The Story Siren. So here's the gist of it:

You have to read at least 12 Young Adult or Middle Grade novels by debut Authors.

The Rules:

  • Books must be a Young Adult or Middle Grade novel.
  • DO NOTE: Just because a book has a teen character or is about a teen, does not mean that it is necessarily a Young Adult novel. 
  • This must be the authors debut with a release date in 2011
  • If an author has a previous novel published under adult fiction/nonfiction or children's fiction/nonfiction, they can still qualify for the challenge if they are releasing their YA or MG debut. 
You also don't have to be a blogger to participate. Here are some of my definite reads for next year:

  1. XVI-Julia Karr
  2. The Trouble with a Half Moon-Danette Vigilante
  3. The Water Wars-Cameron Stracher
  4. Between Shades of Gray-Ruta Sepetys
  5. Wither-Lauren DeStefano
  6. Clarity-Kim Harrington
  7. Die for Me-Amy Plum
  8. Wake Unto Me-Lisa Cach201
  9. Entangled-Cat Clarke
  10. Entwined-Heather Dixon
