2011 Debut Author Challenge

This year I failed miserably at this, so I'm making it my goal to complete it next year.

To participate you have to read 12 YA or MG books by debut authors, or more, that's up to the reader. I'm aiming to read 12, but if I can read more, I will!

On this post I'll list the books I'll be reading, and I reserve the right to change this list whenever I want, for whatever reason. 
  1. Unearthly, by Cynthia Hand. Published January 4th, 2011, by HarperTeen.
  2. Across the Universe, by Beth Revis. Published on January 11th, 2011, by Razorbill.
  3. Angelfire, by Courtney Allison Moulton. Published on February 15th, 2011, by Katherine Tegen Books.
  4. Populazzi, by Elise Allen. To be published on August 2011, by Harcourt Children's Books. 
  5. Wither, by Lauren DeStefano.  Published March 22nd 2011, by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing.
As I read the books I'll be linking my reviews here. 
These are all US debuts, but I might add a Latin, Spanish, UK, or Aussie debut to the list.

You can join the challenge on The Story Siren.
