I'm signing up for the 2010 Debut Author Challenge!

OK, I'm a little late, but better late than never, right?  I've been looking around for a reading challenge, and this one seems like a lot of fun.  It's hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren so head on over there for more details and sign-up info.

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 Amazon.com/BarnesandNoble.com/GoodReads/Shelfari, or any other bookish site.

The challenge will run from January 1, 2010- December 31, 2010. You can join at anytime!

Here's the list of books I've chosen to read for this challenge (in no particular order).  This list is subject to (probably a lot of) change, since I never seem to stick to a plan!

1.  The Body Finder - Kimberly Derting.
2.  Hex Hall - Rachel Hawkins.
3. Shadow Hills - Anastasia Hopcus.
4.  Guardian of the Dead - Karen Healy.
5. Whisper - Phoebe Kitanidis.
6. Shade - Jeri Smith-Ready
7. Paranormalcy - Kiersten White.
8. Firespell - Chloe Neill.
9. Bleeding Violet - Dia Reeves.
10.Glimmerglass -Jenna Black.
11.Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver.
12.The Tension of Opposites - Kristina McBride.

Wish me luck!

  3. Thanks you two. I haven't read any of the books yet. Eeek!

    Nymeth - I got this layout on a free site, and just added some text to the header. :) I think it's pretty too but no way would I be able to design it myself! Not a hope in hell! :-D
