I’m participating in the Story Siren’s Debut Author Challenge for next year. Participants must read twelve middle-grade or young adult books by debut novelists by the end of December. This will be especially fun as almost all of the debuts are written by fellow Elevensies and members of The Class of 2k11.
While I’m not listing the titles I plan to read ahead of time, I aim to tackle many more than the required twelve. Some novels I plan on purchasing, some I’ve downloaded to read through Simon and Schuster’s e-galley* program, some I know will be so big they’ll be easy to find at the library (even with our dismal local book purchase numbers), and some I’ll borrow through the Class of 2k11 ARC* exchange.
I’d love to be able to read everything coming out next year, but with close to 100 debuts, I know I won’t make it. I will, though, share what I’m reading here. Please consider joining in!
