Kristi at The Story Siren is hosting The 2010 Debut Author Challenge. I don’t usually enter challenges but I figured since I’m going to be reading these books anyway I might a well join! It will be fun! Here’s some info about the 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!

I think I will try to do 30. I will probably end up reading more but that’s going to be my number for now. Here’s my list:
