2011 Debut Author Challenge+City of Fallen Angels Cover

I didn't sign up for the 2010 Debut Author Challenge, and I've regretted it ever since. So this year I'm proud to be a participant in the 2011 Debut Author Challenge hosted by The Story Siren. I know that I'm dying to read Wither by Lauren Destefano and XVI by Julia Karr, but other than that I'm not sure exactly which debuts I'm reading this year... So, yeah, this post was kind of pointless, but you should go sign up.

Oh, and while I've got you here check out the newly released City of Fallen Angels cover if you haven't seen it already:


I like everything about it...well except Clary. I mean, come on, they couldn't find a younger model? She looks like she's in her late 20s/30s. (I actually still need to read City of Glass...)

  1. hmm, she kinda looks outta place compared to the other novels. The first one is still on my TBR pile! Ill get to it eventually!

    I am not sure I want to do the challenge, I don't like the idea of feeling like i have to read something to read the amount rather than doing it for the enjoyment. I am at an odds with my thoughts on it..

    The readers rights in your side bar, did you find that somewhere or write it yourself??

  2. I don't understand why YA cover artists are going with much older models for their work - this isn't the only book to do so. But it's also not the worst that I've seen.
    And I'm with you; I still have to read City of Glass.

  4. Good luck!
    You've already got a lot on your plate, but if you're interested in discovering Childrens/YA books you might not have previously heard of, I just started my fist reading challenge complete with monthly giveaways! :)

    It's more of a read at your leisure and not one where you have to read a certain amount of books to "complete" the challenge, so no pressure.
    Would love to have you join if it’s something that at all interests you.
    Keep up the great blogging!
    Your follower,
