I finally signed up for the 2010 Debut Author Challenge

I've seen this challenge a long time ago.I've thought about signing up when I first saw it, but I never got to that part. *sighs* Why didn't I? I don't know too. But now, I'm really signing up for it! I'm interested in reading new and fresh YA fiction!

2010 Debut 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! (I'm thankful for this one.)

After trying to finalize the list of the debut novels I want to read, I came up with this:

1. Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis
2. Sea by Heidi Kling
3. Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia
4. The Snowball Effect by Holly Nicole Hoxter
5. Guardian of the Dead by Karen Healey
6. Everlasting by Angie Frazier
7. The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
8. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
9. The Emerald Talisman by Brenda Pandos
10. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
11. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
12. Mistwood by Leah Cypess
13. Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson
14. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
15. The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade

Quite a list. Let the reading begin! Goodluck to me!
