Reading Challenge Wrap-Up: Debut Author Challenge 2011

Last November, I tossed my hat into the ring for my very first Reading Challenge. To complete the Debut Author Challenge, hosted by The Story Siren, I was supposed to read 12 debut MG/YA novels. So, how’d I do?

The Mostly True Story of Jack I Am J The Goddess Test You Will Call Me Drog Ten Miles Past Normal Charlie Joe Jackson's Guide to Not Reading Like Mandarin This Girl Is Different Bumped Sparrow Road The False Princess Forgotten What Can't Wait Across the Universe The Great Wall Of Lucy Wu The Emerald Atlas Rival

17/12 (141%) – Pretty well, I’d say! Seven of them were from my original list. Three more were Middle Grade Fiction Cybils nominations (Lucy Wu was a fourth nomination, but also on my original list).  I posted reviews of twelve of them here, plus one more at GoodReads that never showed up on the blog (oops).

This was a fantastic challenge, and I loved finding new authors. Aimee Carter, Tommy Greenwald, Kirsten Hubbard, Megan McCafferty, Cat Patrick, Ashley Hope Pérez, and Beth Revis all have books slated for publication in 2012, too.

Will I do this challenge again in 2012? Of course!
