My 2010 Debut Author Challenge List!


Hey guys, loads of you are participating in The Story Siren's 2010 challenge...so I'm thinking 'why the heck not?!?' It's currently my second challenge and I'm pretty excited to get started =) Hope you guys join in the fun! Go to this post to sign up and this post to see what it's all about!


Here's some info on it:
    * 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 Amazon.com/BarnesandNoble.com/GoodReads/Shelfari, or any other bookish site.
    * The challenge will run from January 1, 2010- December 31, 2010. You can join at anytime!
Anyway, here's my reading list. I've already read a few debut 2010s, so I think I'm kind of cheating (hehe)...
Bold = Read
Normal = Own
Italics = On my CANNOT-WAIT-TO-READ-JUST-HURRY-UP-ALREADY list (hehe)

2. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
3. The Vinyl Princess by Yvonne Prinz
