2011 Debut Author Challenge-- My List

I'm so excited to be participating in the 2011 Debut Author Challenge, hosted by The Story Siren, next year. (Which, incredibly, is only just over a month away. Hurry up, 2011!)  The object of the DAC is to read at least twelve novels from YA or MG authors.  I think I can axe twelve-- maybe even make twenty-four, considering that we have a year and I read a ridiculous amount of books.  So I just wanted to scope out the upcoming releases and those listed on the Story Siren's post and pick a few books I really want to get around to reading in 2011.

XVI by Julia Karr          
Timeless by Alexandra Monir 
Across the Universe by Beth Revis        
Choker by Elizabeth Woods 
Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton       
The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney 
Gemini Bites by Patrick Ryan         
The Demon Trapper's Daughter by Jana Oliver 
Wither by Lauren DeStefano          
Clarity by Kim Harrington 
Born at Midnight by CC Hunter       
Enclave by Ann Aguirre 
Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton         
Luminous by Dawn Metcalf 
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake  (no cover yet) 
The Faerie Ring by Kiki Hamilton (no cover yet)
Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson (no cover yet)

Good luck to everyone else who's taking the challenge, and I just want to wish everybody in the US a very Happy Thanksgiving today!! :)
