The 2010 Debut Author Challenge

I'm a little late coming into this challenge since the year is half over, but I looked at the books I plan to review and decided that I wanted to participate in the 2010 Debut Author Challenge, hosted by 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. 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!

      Great list, I will have to look and see how many books are needed for this challenge. So many great debut authors, I didn't realise I had read so many.

      I have only read Angel STar from your list.
