Debut Author Challenge 2011: COMPLETE

As you may well have seen, I'm taking part in a couple of reading challenges during 2011. I'm rather excited because as my first year as a blogger, it's also my first time doing any official challenges!

Anyway, I'll talk more about that in another post. This post is all about The Debut Author Challenge 2011, which is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren. Being the crazy person that I am, I couldn't resist taking part in yet another challenge for the year, so I've gone and signed myself up for it.

The idea is to read twelve books from debut young adult authors. Of course, you're free to read as many as you like, the minimum being twelve. 

DCA Books I Have Read:
Across the Universe by Beth Revis (US)
Choker by Elizabeth Wood (US)
My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent (UK)
Wereworld: Rise of the Wolf by Curtis Jobling (UK)
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (UK)
Haven by Kristi Cook (US)
Divergent by Veronica Roth (US)
Wither by Lauren Destefano (US)
Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton (US)
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys (UK)
Flawless by Lara Chapman (UK)
Enclave by Ann Aguirre (US)
Forbidden by Jana Oliver (UK)
Deception by Lee Nichols (UK)

Here is the sign up page for this challenge, and Kristi has also very kindly put together an FAQ, in case you get a little overwhelmed :) 

I'm so looking forward to it. Thanks for hosting, Kristi!


  1. Love your choices, I want to read most of them myself. Wither is definitely a book I'm waiting for with anticipation. I'm glad I'm not the only one doing it for the first time :)

  2. Thanks Alice :) I think there are quite a few people doing this for the first time in 2011, so I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone handles it!

  3. Thanks for joining the challenge! Looks like you've got a great list started! Good luck and happy reading!

  4. I'm doing it for the first time, too!

    I just had to stop by your blog after seeing Dean as your icon picture. He's awesome. I'm off to check out the rest of your blog now. See you around!

  5. Thanks Kristi :)

    Small Review - Hi! Good luck with your challenge, I'm really excited about it! And I totally agree, Dean is awesome, as is Jensen Ackles :D

  6. Thanks!

    I can't wait to see season 5. Hopefully my library will get it soon. I'm going through Dean withdrawals. :P Jensen Ackles is, of course, great too.
