2011 Debut Author Challenge

Every year The Story Siren hosts a Debut Author Challenge. This year I'm jumping on the bandwagon. Here are (at least) 12 books by debut YA authors I aim to read in 2011:

  1. LILY OF THE NILE by Stephanie Dray (1/4) - Review
  2. XVI by Julia Karr (1/6)
  3. ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis (1/11)
  4. LIKE MANDARIN by Kirsten Hubbard (3/8)
  5. ILLEGAL by Bettina Restrepo (3/8)
  6. WITHER by Lauren DeStefano (3/22) - Review
  7. DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth (5/3)
  8. THE SWEETEST THING by Christina Mandelski (5/10) - Review
  9. RUBY RED by Kerstin Gier (5/10)
  10. SPOILED by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan (6/1)
  11. POSSESSION by Elana Johnson (6/7)
  12. THE NEAR WITCH by Victoria Schwab (8/2)
  13. THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER by Michelle Hodkin
Bold = read.

Are you participating in the Challenge this year? What 2011 (and beyond) debuts are you looking forward to?

I buy books from new authors because by the time they hit the bookstores, I'm so eager to read them (after hearing about them on the blogs), I can't wait for the library to get them. ;)

No, I'm not participating, but I am excited for many of the debuts coming out next year. It seems like books are getting better and better now. Or at least their premises. Some of the ones on your list are ones I'm most excited to read, like Divergent, Wither, XVI, and Possession.

I really need to sign up. I have a lot of 'friend's' debuts to read this year anyway.
