Debut Author Challenge '10

I'm going to be participating in the 2010 Debut Author Challenge. My goal is to read at least 12 debuts but hopefully I'll get to many more.

What is the 2010 Debut Author Challenge?
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! 

For more info visit The Story Siren.

Here are just a few of the ones I hope to read for the challenge:
-I Kissed a Zombie and I Liked It by Adam Selzer
-The Naughty List by Suzanne Young
-The Duff by Kody Keplinger
-Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
-Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt

I only have one of these at the moment so I'll have to buy or get from the library the others as they're released.

I'll list the ones I've finished for this challenge on this post.


  1. What a great idea! I'll have to see what I can do. Have a great Thanksgiving.

  2. Okay, I'll admit I'm totally stalking these lists and jump up and down every time Paranormalcy makes one : ) But I'm also getting great ideas for more books I want to read!

  3. YAY! Thanks for joining the challenge! It's going to be so much fun! And what a great list! Happy reading!

  4. Ooh, yay! Hope you enjoy Princess for Hire!

  5. The Duff, The Naughty List, and Paranormalcy are all on my to-read list too! Oh wait, I read The Naughty List many times already and it rocks!!!

  6. Yay!! I love seeing THE DUFF on these lists!
