2011 debut author challenge

I participated in the 2011 Debut Author Challenge hosted by The Story Siren. To learn more about the challenge and to sign up visit this link.

It's the end of the year, and I didn't do so well in this challenge. Here's what I managed to read, along with my reviews:

1. Entwined by Heather Dixon
2. Breath of Angel by Karyn Henley
3. The Revenant by Sonia Gensler
4. The Princess Curse by Merrie Haskell

And here are the books I read that didn't count for the challenge. The first four did not count because I read ARCs or foreign editions in 2010. The last book did not count because I read it in 2011, but the release date got delayed until January 2012. So I can't really use it for either the 2011 or 2012 challenge now.

1. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
2. Wither by Lauren DeStefano (for some reason I never reviewed this)
3. Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis (for some reason I never reviewed this either, I feel terrible!)
4. The Coven's Daughter by Lucy Jago (read the UK edition, titled Montacute House, in 2010)
5. May B. by Caroline Starr Rose

Thanks for including The Year We Were Famous on your list of books to read next year, Rebecca! As a retired librarian, writing historical fiction is a great excuse to still hang out at the library.

Happy Reading,
Carole Estby Dagg
