Yes, I am weak, and signed up for yet another challenge.
This challenge is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren
2011 Debut Author Challenge participant information:•The objective of the DAC is to read at least twelve novels from Young Adult or Middle Grade Authors. While twelve is the minimum there is no maximum limit! Readers who can read more than twelve are encouraged to do so!

•You do not have to have an blog written in English to participate.

•Books must be a Young Adult or Middle Grade novel.
•DO NOTE: Just because a book has a teen character or is about a teen, does not mean that it is necessarily a Young Adult novel.
•This must be the authors debut with a release date in 2011.
•If an author has a previous novel published under adult fiction/nonfiction or children's fiction/nonfiction, they can still qualify for the challenge if they are releasing their YA or MG debut
Kristi has composed a helpful spreadsheet here with a list of qualifying authors. Several of these books are already on my wishlist and I've already read three on the list, all of which helped me decide to sign up for this challenge. Hey, I also add things to my to-do list just so I can cross them off, so don't judge! ;)
