2011 Debut Author Challenge

The new year has rolled around and that means another Debut Author Challenge hosted by Kristi at the Story Siren. I participated last year, and while I did not review all the books I had chosen, I did make the minimum required to participate. So I'm proud of myself for that, especially since I didn't join until August 2010. And I'm excited to participate again this year.

What is the 2011 Debut Author Challenge?

The objective is to read a set number of YA (Young Adult) or MG (Middle Grade) novels from debut authors published this year. The minimum number is 12, but there is no maximum! Anyone can join, you don’t need a blog to participate. If you don’t have a blog you can always share your reviews by posting on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, GoodReads, or any other bookish site. The challenge will run from January 1, 2011 - December 31, 2011. You can join at anytime!

For more information on the 2011 Debut Author Challenge, please visit The Story Siren.
