2011 Debut Author Challenge!

Three things I LOVE:
- Reading challenges
- YA books
- Discovering new authors

They all come together in the wonderful:
2011 Debut Author Challenge
hosted by The Story Siren.
I'm SOO excited about this challenge!

The goal is to read at least 12 debut YA or MG novels published in 2011 between January 1st and December 31st 2011.

There are so many great books on the list, it's hard not to list them all, but here's what I'm hoping to read:

Queen of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (I'm so excited about this one coming out! I'm running to the store the moment it does)
Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
The False Princes by Eilis O'Neal
Vesper by Jeff Sampsen
Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
Wake Unto Me by Lisa Cach
Entwined by Heather Dixon
The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab
A Beautiful Dark by Jocelyn Davies
The Water Wars by Cameron Stracher
Clarity by Kim Harrington
Wither by Lauren DeStefano
The Revenant by Sonia Gensler
Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky

Who's planning to participate as well?
