2011 Debut Author Challenge


I'm sure a lot of you have heard of the Debut Author Challenge hosted by The Story Siren, I didn't take part in this one last year but I probably did read 12 debut novels.  I thought it would be fun to take part this year - there are so many YA Debuts I'm looking forward to reading that I'll be interested to see how many I actually manage to read!  If you'd like to find out more about the challenge click here

The aim is to read at least 12 YA Debut novels in 2011 but I'm hoping to read more than that.  The list below shows some of the books I'm hoping to read and I'll add links to my reviews as and when I post them.  The list may well change and I'll add others as I discover them.
