My 2010 Debut Author Challenge List!

The Story Siren is hosting a 2010 Debut Author Challenge this upcoming year and since I participated in her 2009 one (and completed it!) I've decided to take part in this one, too! 

Here's some info about the challange directly form The Story Siren's site:

  • The objective is to read a set number of YA (Young Adult) or MG (Middle Grade) novels from debut authors published this year.* I'm going to challenge everyone to read at least 12 debut novels! I’m hoping to read at least 30! You don’t have to list your choices right away, but if you do feel free to change them throughout the year. I will also be focusing on mostly Young Adult novels.
  • Anyone can join, you don’t need a blog to participate. If you don’t have a blog you can always share your views by posting a review on, or any other bookish site.
  • The challenge will run from January 1, 2010- December 31, 2010. You can join at anytime!
So, if you would like to take part in the fun, please do head over to her blog and sign up.
