2011 Debut Author Challenge

So I'm really excited about taking part in The Story Siren's 2011 Debut Author Challenge. I hadn't started blogging when sign ups for the 2010 challenge closed so I was always really jealous this year of those taking part but this year I can enter - yay!

There are already so many books that I'm hoping to read next year and I'm going to be going on a big pre-ordering spree tomorrow to make sure I'm all sorted. Pre-ordering doesn't break my book buying ban too badly, does it? Nah.

So, these are the books that I'm hoping to read as part of the challenge. Of course I'll update this as I'm sure things will change but here it is so far:

Bad Taste in Boys - Carrie Harris
Possession - Elana Johnson
Alissa Grosso - Popular
Being Billy - Phil Earle
Artichoke Hearts - Sita Brahmachari
Warped - Maurissa Guibord
XVI - Julia Karr
Choker - Elizabeth Woods
Head Games - Keri Mikulski
The Iron Witch - Karen Mahoney
The Latte Rebellion - Sarah Jamila Stevenson
Vesper - Jeff Sampson
Haven - Kristi Cook
Exposed - Kimberly Marcus
So Shelly - Ty Roth
Rival - Sara Bennett Wealer
Wake Unto Me - Lisa Cach
Wither - Lauren DeStefano
Clarity - Kim Harrington
Like Mandarin - Kirsten Hubbard
The Liar Society - Lisa Roecker
The Lipstick Laws - Amy Holder

Good luck to everybody else entering - there are so many amazing books coming out next year, I'm sure we'll have a blast!
