With grad school coming to an end this week, I've been thinking of ways to spice up my reading habits. I haven't participated in many reading challenges. The main one I usually take part in is the seasonal book challenge from my online book club. When I found this challenge, though, I knew it would be perfect!
So, what is the 2011 Debut Author Challenge?
The Story Siren created this challenge asking participants to read at least 12 novels from Young Adult or Middle Grade authors who haven't released a YA or MG book before. You can read more than 12 books, but 12 is the minimum.
I've made a list of books that I plan on reading. Warning: My list will probably grow. :-)

Entangled - Cat Clarke (January)
