2011 Debut Author Challenge

The Story Siren is thinking ahead and has opened the 2011 Debut Author Challenge. Looking at the list of upcoming books has gotten me really excited about 2011. Too bad that books we have already read that will be published in 2011 do not count, but I see several on the list that I could get into.
Now, to go pump up my Goodreads TBR list with some of these titles.

I noticed some bloggers are listing the books they plan to read for the challenge, and even though I set up a special Goodreads shelf (how did I live before Goodreads?) I want to keep a running list here for my reference. The plan is to link the titles when I finish them. Of course, I'm not holding myself to this list, but will instead be using it as a guide:

1. Choker-Woods (done)
3.Warped-Guibord (done)
4. Angelfire-Moulton (done)
5. Wither- DeStephano
6. Like Mandarin- Hubbard
7. XVI-Karr
8. Clarity-Harrington
9. Across the Universe-Revis (done)
10. Demon Trapper's Daughter-Oliver
11. Water Wars-Stratcher (done)
12. The Latte Rebellion-Stevenson (done)
13. Dogsled Dreams- Johnson
14. Awaken-Kacvinsky (done)
15. Ten Miles Past Normal-Dowell (done)
Those are just a few of the titles I am most excited about.

Thanks Ladies! I think the only bad thing about this challenge is squeezing in some "old" favorite writers because now I am loaded up with debut titles. Oh, who am I kidding? We know I will call out of work and turn off my phone when the new Cassandra Clare comes out.
