2011 Debut YA Authors Challenge

Hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren
2011 Debut Author Challenge participant information:
  • The objective of the DAC is to read at least twelve novels from Young Adult or Middle Grade Authors. While twelve is the minimum there is no maximum limit! I encourage readers who can read more than twelve to do so!
  • Anyone can join. You don't have to be a blogger, and you don't have to live in the United States. 
  • You do not have to have an blog written in English to participate. 
  • Deadline to join is November 20, 2011. The challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. 
Qualifying books:
  • Books must be a Young Adult or Middle Grade novel.
  • DO NOTE: Just because a book has a teen character or is about a teen, does not mean that it is necessarily a Young Adult novel. 
  • This must be the authors debut with a release date in 2011
  • If an author has a previous novel published under adult fiction/nonfiction or children's fiction/nonfiction, they can still qualify for the challenge if they are releasing their YA or MG debut.
Tentative List with notes about if I already have it:
1. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand
2. XVI by Julia Karr
3. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
4. Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton (Netgalley)
5. Here Lies Bridget by Paige Harbison (Netgalley)
6. Where I Belong by Gwendolyn Heasley

10. The Lipstick Laws by Amy Holder (Netgalley)

  1. Great challenge! I might join you guys in January. I need to browse through the list of new releases in 2011 on GoodReads first. But I hope I can join you and other bloggers in this fun venture. I have Unearthly on my wishlist, so that's a start.
