2011 Debut Authors Challenge complete

I challenged myself to read 12 debut authors in 2011 and I'm simultaneously surprised to be finished so soon, and shocked that I didn't finish earlier, since there were more than 12 interesting debut authors that I wanted to read in January alone.

Here's my list.

Unearthly - Cynthia Hand
Wither - Lauren deStefano
Angelfire - Courtney Allison Moulton
Across the Universe - Beth Revis
XVI - Julia Karr
The False Princess - Eilis O'Neal
Lost Voices - Sarah Porter
The Goddess Test - Aimee Carter
How I Stole Johnny Depp's Alien Girlfriend - Gary Ghislain
10 The Latte Rebellion - Sarah Jamila Stevenson
11 The Great Wall of Lucy Wu - Wendy Wan Long
12 The Demon Trapper's Daughter - Jana Oliver

I'm pleased I gave this challenge a try... I had thought that it might be the sort of thing I'd be accomplishing already without even realizing it, but going back and looking at my reading logs, that wasn't the case. So, it did take a bit of effort to seek out new authors, but it was definitely worthwhile. I'll post again at the end of the year, and see how many more debuts I read.


  1. Congratulations Madigan! :D Shows dedication to finish a reading challenge.

  2. Thanks! I'm glad I'm trying out all these new authors this year.

  3. Congrats! I finished this one too. There were so many great debut authors to choose from this year.
