2011 Debut Author Challenge List

Once again Kristi @ The Story Siren  (Thank You) is hosting a 2011 Author Debut Challenge. This will be my second challenge. I'm looking forward to another great year of books. There are so many that I want to read.

Here's more information on the challenge directly from The Story Siren:

  • 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.
If you would like to sign up, head over to The Story Siren for more info.
