2011 Debut Author Challenge

This will be the second year I'll be participating in the Debut Author Challenge. And this year I'll be doing things a little differently. I plan to add a list of each book that I'm looking forward to and we'll link to the review for any and all 2011 Debut's I'm able to read. A HUGE thank you goes out to Kristi at the Story Siren for hosting such an amazing event for a third year in a row.

The rules are easy, but you can get a full run down and additional info here: 2011 Debut Author Challenge Info. And you can sign up for it here: 2011 Debut Author Challenge Sign Up.

And as for my Challenge, I'd like to read AT LEAST 25. I hope to be able to read more than that, but I'm aiming for 25 to start and we'll see how it all goes. The list below has some books I'm looking forward to in 2011, I'll be adding to the list as well. (All reviews will be posted closer to the release date unless a request has been made to read and review sooner)

Here's my list that I'll update all throughout 2011 - remember it runs from Jan 1st, 2011 - December 31st, 2011.

My Ratings

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down. If you would like me to review a book, please contact me or view my Contact Information and Review Policy for further details.

5 Stars - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
4 Stars - I Really liked/Loved it.
3 Stars - I liked it/Was pretty good.
2 Stars - It was, eh okay.
1 Star - It just wasn't for me.
