Debut Author Challenge

Since I don't have any books to do an In My Mailbox this week, but I still wanted to post something I figured I would share my enthusiasm for the Debut Author Challenge that is going to be starting in January.

A yearly event hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren, the challenge is to read at least 12 debut novels. If you want more information or wish to sign up please visit Kristi's blog.

I have a list so far of 23 books I am hoping to read for the challenge. I will be adding to the list as more novels come to my attention.
