2010 Debut Author Challenge

I've only just found out about the 2010 Debut Author Challenge hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren and thought I would participate! The objective is to read a set number of YA (Young Adult) or MG (Middle Grade) novels from debut authors published in 2010. You have to read at least 12 novels and the challenge will run from January 1st - December 21st, 2010.

I realise I'm a little late with this but I've already read some debut author's novels this year.

1. Hush Hush by Becca fitzpatrick
2.Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
3. The Crescent by Jordan Deen
4. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
5. Rising Shadow by Jacquelyn Wheeler
6. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
7. Angel Star by Jennifer Murgia
8. The Moonstone Legacy by Diana de Gunzberg and Tony Wild
9. Matched by Ally Condie
10. 13 To Life by Shannon Delany
11. Restoring Harmony by Joelle Anthony
12. Raised by Wolves by Jennifer Lynn Barnes

And more to come...
