Description from The Story Siren:

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 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!
Here's where I'll be keeping track of the books I want to read for the 2010 Challenge. (This list will most likely grow and change as the year goes on!) My goal is to read 30.

  1. Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers
  2. The DUFF by Kody Keplinger
  3. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
  4. Sea by Heidi R. Kling
  5. Iron King by Julie Kagawa
  6. Wish by Alexandra Bullen
  7. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
  8. You by Chuck Benoit
  9. Daughters by Joanna Philbin
And the rest of the list is TBD.

Thanks Suzie! Can you count the 100 times you've already read PERSONAL DEMONS? Chances are it will be in your inbox again tomorrow =)

The rest are on my list too!

hehehe :)

Of course, the number of times I read a book directly corresponds with how much I love it!

Okay, I know this comment is spam-like, but it IS related. I'm a debut author! If anyone's interested in reading my book for the challenge leave a comment on my blog!

Hi Suzie, I follow you on Twitter. er...I'm Rachel, I'm a college student and I like to write. I also am interested in learning about the publishing business. :-)

I'm currently reading NIGHTSHADE by Andrea and it is fabulous! It is certainly NOT the werewolves of Twilight and the world-building in this novel is fantastic.

I also want to read the DUFF... I should probably do this 2010 Debut Author Challenge. *starts to put a list togeter*

Wow - thanks so much for including Nightshade! And I hope your oh-so-talented client Lisa (my fab crit partner) has already told you how much I <3 Personal Demons.
