2010 Debut Author Challenge

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 (released 2010). I'm going to challenge everyone to read at least 12 debut novels! You don't have to list your choices right away, but if you do feel free to change them around throughout the 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 - Decemeber 31, 2010. You can join at any time!

This challenge is hosted by The Story Siren, so go and visit her
