I am so excited to let you all know that I have decided to enter The Story Siren’s 2011 challenge! I enjoyed the challenge last year and got to read so many wonderful novels that I wouldn't have had brought to my attention otherwise through it. I also was able to get quite a few debut's at NCTE this year and am pumped to have the collection started!
The Challenge: Read at least 12 debut novels that are middle grade or young adult by December 31, 2011. Titles that are YA debuts by a middle grade author or vice versa count as well! You can join at anytime. The challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011.
My list of chosen books is below! I will be adding to this as the year goes and can't wait to read them all.
Leave a comment if you’re participating in the challenge too or want to suggest a title! Share a link to your list!
