Debut Author Challenge 2010

Nov 13, 2010
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!
* I would like to limit the novels to those released in 2010.

So, I decided to sign up for this even though there are only 2 months left. I've already read and reviewed a lot of author debut books too. I'm not sure if I can post reviews from older months though, so if you know please leave me a comment letting me know! Without further ado here is my list:
