I began this year signing up for a number of challenges with no clue as to whether or not I would be able to accomplish most of the goals I set for myself. One challenge that I missed (probably because I was such a newbie in November when it was posted) was the Debut Author Challenge. I have already read six books by debut authors and have several more on my TBR shelf, so I have decided to join in on the fun and set a goal of at least 15 and with the hopes of doing more.

I read Jinx a few months ago and it was actually my least favorite Meg Cabot book to date. I usually really like her but something about that book didn't thrill me.
