2011 Debut Author Challenge

 So the blog isn't even complete yet, and I'm signing up for my first challenge! It was on my resolutions list for 2011, and I thought I'd wait until everything was up and running, but I'm just so excited about it I couldn't hold off! I only recently found out about this fabulous challenge hosted by The Story Siren at the end of last year, and I'm stoked to be a part of it this year. I'm setting my goal at the minimum this year - only 12 books! Since I'm new at this, I don't want to overwhelm myself right off the bat. However, I'm totally up for surpassing my goal. ;D Below are some of the titles I'm interested in getting my hands on this year:

  • Warped by Maurissa Gui Bord
  • Unearthly by Cynthia Hand *
  • Timeless by Alexandra Monir
  • Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren
  • Across the Universe by Beth Revis *
  • Vesper by Jeff Sampson
  • Choker by Elizabeth Woods *
  • Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
  • Haven by Kristi Cook
  • The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney
  • Wither by Lauren Destefano *
  • Entwined by Heather Dixon
  • Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys*
  • Enclave by Ann Aguirre
  • Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis*
  • The Emerald Atlas by John Stephens *
  • Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
  • Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

* Indicates I already have a copy of the book, being either an ARC edition or a bought copy, and that these are definite picks for my list.

So, yeah, obviously way more than twelve, and I'll probably end up updating this list a lot. There are a lot of fabulous books coming out that I want to read - I just hope I'll have time to get through even half of them!


  1. Oooh. I actually have a lot of your books on my list as well. :) Good luck with the challenge. This is my first year participating as well so I'll be reading the same amount (hopefully!).

  2. @Cialina: Thanks! There are so many I want to read, I think my problem is going to be fitting them all in with all the other older books I want to read too. :-P

    btw, thanks for being my first non-family-member follower. XDDDD

  3. thanks so much for joining the challenge!! happy reading and good luck!
