2011 Author Debut Challenge!

Well, it's that time of year. The time to sign up for new book challenges. The first one I'm signing up for is the 2011 YA debut challenge over at The Story Siren hosted by Kristi. I didn't do this in 2010 because I didn't think I'd read any of the new authors. But I read more then I thought and this year a lot of them look really good. So here I am.
The idea of this challenge is to read at least 12 books written by an author writing for the first time in the YA/Middle Grade category.
Books I'm hoping to tackle:

Unearthly by Cynthia Hand-released Jan. 4rth
The False Princess by Ellis O'Neal-Released Jan. 25th
The Demon Trappers Daughter by Jana Oliver-Released Feb. 1rst
The Iron Witch by Karen Mahoney-released Feb. 8th
Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton-Released Feb. 15th
Chemical Garden Trilogy Book 1: Wither by Lauren DeStefano-Released March 22nd.
Entwined by Heather Dixon-Released March 29th
Books of Beginning 1: The Emerald Atlas by John Stephans-Released April 5th
The Coven's Daughter by Lucy Jago-Released April 19th
Tempest Rising by Tracy Deebs-Released May 10th
Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky-Released May 23rd
Forgotten by Cat Patrick-Released June 7th
