YA Debut Author Challenge 2011

Yay! My first challenge! I will be participating in the 2011 (third annual) YA Debut Author Challenge! Hosted by The Story Siren (click HERE to view the post and sign up). So what is the challenge?

The challenge is to read 12 young adult (or kid lit) novels by debut authors. They must have a released date in 2011 and the book must be the author's FIRST YA novel. It does count if the novel is written by an author who has published books before but this is their debut in YA. And all novels must be read January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. ARCs read before this time do not count (darn... either I'm gonna have to wait read my ARCs or just find even more debut authors...)

I will be updating the list before throughout the year with the titles I've read and links to reviews.
