well, it's that time of year again when the 2011 Debut Author Challenge is hosted by The Story Siren. So I thought I'd better make a list of all the books I plan to read next year.
Before I start, I had better mention that so far my attempt at the 2010 Debut Author Challenge has been something of an epic fail. Mostly because I didn't join until April, and to be frank it's been ridiculously hard to get hold of most of the books I've been wanting to read for the challenge, they've all been in hardback and the postage is extortionate. That said, I have three books on my shelf I'm yet to read and I've just bought two more from Amazon, so I haven't entirely given up.
Anyway. I haven't been put off by this, and next year with those extra four months (and hopefully some more money) then I'm up for partaking again. Hence, so far my list is:
- Across the Universe by Beth Revis
- Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
- Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetis
- Clarity by Kim Harrington
- Entangled by Cat Clarke
- Exposed by Kimberley Marcus
- Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
- Other Words for Love by Lorraine Zago Rosenthal
- Posession by Elana Johnson
- Rival by Sarah Bennet Wealer
- So Shelly by Ty Roth
- What Can't Wait by Ashley Hope Perez
- XVI by Julia Karr
- The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (this, while already out in the States, hasn't yet been released in the UK, so it can count towards my attempt at the Challenge)
Well, until then I had better start saving. I'll have a lot of postage to cover.
