2011 Debut Author Challenge

In 2010 I may have aimed a little high on the Debut Author Challenge. My list consisted of 56 novels: I read 36... but didn't read 22. So pretty good, but I'd like to do better this year. Below you'll find information about the challenge, hosted by Kristi of The Story Siren, a link to find further information and sign up, and the list of 2011 debuts I'm set on reading this upcoming year!

  • The objective of the DAC is to read at least twelve novels from Young Adult or Middle Grade Authors. While twelve is the minimum there is no maximum limit! I encourage readers who can read more than twelve to do so!
  • Anyone can join. You don't have to be a blogger, and you don't have to live in the United States. 
  • You do not have to have an blog written in English to participate. 
  • You can join at anytime. Deadline to join is November 20, 2011. The challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011.
