2011 Debut Author Challenge

Yes, I have officially decided to join the 2011 Debut Author Challenge, hosted by the ever wonderful Story Siren. Not gonna lie, I'm pretty stoked. Debut authors deserve a chance and a shout out. Making it in the literature business is hard enough, so we humble bloggers must do what we can to help 'em out. This is the first challenge I've participated in, and I think it's an awesome way of showing new authors we support them. Because we do. We want authors to keep writing, because we want to keep reading. So flippideedoo!

This year, at this point in my life, I'm hoping to read...

I have already reviewed:
The False Princess by Ellis O'Neal

So yeah, so far this is a pretty small list. But never fear! It's mostly just because I haven't had the time to research other books. These are ones that I've heard a lot about or have stood out to me. Yesh. Exciting stuff... exciting stuff indeed.

Anyhow, I will stop blabbing on and on (as I tend to do). BUT, I will, once again, say...

Happy Tuesday!


  1. You should add these to your list deary:

    Wither by Lauren DeStefano - <3 the cover PLUS I've actually heard excellent things

    Other Words for Love by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal - I've heard pretty good things. I'm just really craving a good contemporary romance, you know? I just need a shot or two every so often and I'm good.


  2. Oh wait. Because I read carefully, I see now that you already have the second one. HA. But you still have to add the first one!

  3. So for this challenge, does the book have to come out in 2011 or do you just have to read their debut work. My debut book came out Dec. 15, 2010. If I knew about this challenge I would have pushed it back two weeks!

  4. Wither! I forgot about that one, but I definitely want to read it.

    And the books that are read as part of this challenge do have to be 2011 debuts. Of course, that doesn't mean I'm not going to be reading other books as well! :)
