2011 DAC

I am participating in the 2011 Debut Author Challenge. At the time of sign-up I chose only twelve books, but they are not the only books by debut authors that I will be reading this year.

As my post will eventually end up in the archives, I thought I’d create this page so it will be easier to see what books I’ve read from my list and any new books added.

As I read each of the original twelve books I will mark them as read on this page and in my original post. Additional books by debut authors that I read will also be added to that post and this page as I read them.

For more details click on the link on this page to my “original post” or visit The Story Siren’s website.

2011 Debut’s I’ve read in 2010 so they don’t count are: Cynthia Hand’s Unearthly, Jana Oliver’s The Demon Trapper’s Daughter and Courtney Allison Moulton’s Angelfire. All awesome books.

    Haven by Kristi Cook

    Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney

    Angelfire

    I just got Unearthly from my library and a few more on netgalley.

    And WOW you have read a lot of debut authors. I am mostly a library user and it takes a lot longer to get them!

    @Amber – Oh cool. I loved Born at Midnight. I’ll be stopping by your site this weekend to check out your contest and reviews!

    I had a few from NetGalley and Simon & Schuster’s Galley Grab so I got a chance to read them early which is why a few were already read in 2010 so can’t count :( But I’ve bought all the lovely finished eBooks. (Not quite as pretty as the printed, but still lovely!)

    Congrats on your Debut Author Challenge books!
