The 2011 Debut Author Challenge

I was very tempted by this challenge last year. Very tempted. But told myself that I had too many other challenges and was I really going to read THAT much YA? Well, the answer was a big, huge resounding "Yes." So I am getting in on this lovely challenge brought to you by The Story Siren.

I probably picked way too many books but my free time is plentiful and since my New Years Resolution for this year is to read more and to bake a new cupcake recipe every week, I figure this should help with one of them. I scheduled it according to release date (because I am crazy like that).
