2010 Debut Author Challenge

Monday November 30, 2009

I can't believe that 2009 is almost over...wow, this year went by so fast! With the end of the year comes the anticipation of all the new books to be published next year in the Young Adult genre. This year's 2010 Debut Author Challenge is hosted by The Story Siren!

I am going to commit to read 25 of the many, many books debuting in 2010. You can find the list of the books that have been listed as debuting so far (more will be added as the year goes on) HERE. So...here is what I have so far towards the 25 books that I plan on reading!

Dia Reeves (Bleeding Violet)
Anastasia Hopcus (Shadow Hills)
Jeri Smith-Ready (Shade)
Julie Kagawa (Iron King)
Rachel Hawkins (Hex Hall)
Jen Nadol (The Mark)
Kelly Creagh (Nevermore)
Amy Brecount White (Forget-Her-Nots)
Angie Frazier (Everlasting)
Alexandra Diaz (Of All the Stupid Things)
Judith Graves (Under My Skin)
Olugbemisola Rhuday Perkovich (Eighth-Grade Superzero)
Leah Cypess (Mistwood)
Kimberly Derting (The Body Finder)
Jennifer Murgia (Angel Star)

Bree Despain (The Dark Divine)
Ryan Potter (Exit Strategy)
Kat Falls (Dark Life)

Rachel Ward (Numbers)
Jandy Nelson (The Sky is Everywhere)
Andrea Cremer (Nightshade)

Okay, this is what I'll commit to so far...I will add to the list as more author's are announced! The one's marked in bold are books that I already have ARC's for! Nothing like a fun challenge to start off the year!

I can't believe Shadow Hills is one of the top five books on your list! I realize they aren't necessarily in order, but I'll choose to ignore that fact.;)

It's going to be a fun challenge - I'm signed up for 30 titles. Hopefully I haven't tried to take on more than I can handle! ;-)
