I was kind of late in joining the 2010 Debut Author Challenge, so I'm excited to start the 2011 one at the very beginning! I've currently read 9 debuts so far for 2010's challenge (in three months), so I think I might challenge myself to twenty one 2011 debuts. There are so many great debut novels this year that I was going to read anyway - it'll be like killing two birds with one stone.
The Challenge: The objective is to read a set number of YA (Young Adult) or MG (Middle Grade) novels from debut authors published in 2011. Reviews must be submitted via Mr. Linky.

I'm hoping to at least get through these 21, if not more. I already either have plans to read these, are signed up for tours with them, or have them in my possession. 2011 looks like it's going to be a great year!
