2010 Debut Author Challenge.

I made this button, yo!

This is the first challenge I've ever signed up for and it sounds like so much fun!

The Mission: Read a set number of YA (Young Adult) or MG (Middle Grade) novels from debut authors published this year. [2010! Clearly] I'm [That'd be Kristi at The Story Siren] going to challenge everyone to read at least 12 debut novels! The challenge will run from January 1, 2010- December 31, 2010. 

See? Totally sounds doable (now watch me suck at it) and fun! So, I need to start thinking up a list of 2010 YA debut books. If you have any recommendations, feel free to share! I sort of want to do it chronologically, and I'm missing several month's releases. Forget chronologically, I want books!

1. Firespell by Chloe Neill. - REVIEWED!
2. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
3. Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn.
4. Other by Karen Kincy
5. Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready
