2011 Debut Author Challenge

My new found addiction is young adult literature. It's a great genre, and because I am so new to it (I've read other YA before but it's not what I usually go to) I am not always aware of the up and coming (not even a little bit). Which is why I have decided to take part of the 2011 Debut Author Challenge hosted by The Story Siren, what this is and how you can also participate can be found over on her blog (http://www.thestorysiren.com).

Basically what you want to aim to do is read 12 debut authors of the YA genre in the year 2011, you can read more or less even. But the challenge is 12. There are rules and other stuff but Kristie does a great job explaining everything, so go check it out.

This year I am planning on reading at the very least 12 (Probably more, but I don't want to make any promises). The first six I know that I am going to read and that I am super pumped about are:

1) Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
2) XIV by Julia Karr
3) Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
4) Entwined by Heather Dixon
5) Clarity by Kim Harrington
6) Falling Under-Gwen Hayes

I am totally looking forward to getting my hands on these books and getting lost in every single one.

Just in case anyone was wondering, YA isn't the only thing that I am going to be reading from now on. I still need me some romance and I don't think that I could ever turn my back on my true love. But it's nice to change things up every once in a while, broaden the horizons. So that's what I am doing. So with that being said,

Happy Reading.
