Debut Author Challenge 2011

Kirsti over at The Story Siren is hosting the Debut Author Challenge 2011 and I'm joining in! The idea is to read at least 12 novels from debut authors in the YA/middlegrade segment. It looks like a great way to discover 'new' authors and books!

The books I plan to read:
- "The Trouble with Half a Moon" by Danette Vigilante
- "A Touch Mortal" by Leah Clifford
- "The Iron Witch" by Karen Mahoney
- "Falling Under" by Gwen Hayes
- "Between Shades of Gray" by Ruta Sepetys
- "Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever." by Caissie St. Onge
- "Possession" by Elena Johnson
- "Choker" by Elizabeth Woods
- "Across the Universe" by Beth Revis
- "Born at Midnight" by C.C. Hunter
- "Ruby Red" by Kersten Gier
- "Ashes, Ashes" by Jo Treggiari
- "Entangled" by Cat Clarke
- "Paranormalcy" by Kiersten White (UK Debut)

I may add or remove some books from the list, as this is the US list for debut novels in 2011 and I don't have the UK list yet, or the Dutch list for that matter. There are also some books that come out in December 2010 in the US, but they might be released in 2011 in the UK and/or The Netherlands.

For more information, please check out this post at!
