The 2010 Debut Author Challenge
What is the 2010 Debut Author Challenge?
Having looked at the amazing list of debut books being published in 2010 and realizing that I really want to read a lot of them, I decided to join The Story Siren's 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!
I am challenging myself to read at least 12 debut books this year, including the following books. Once I read a book, I will link to its review.
1. Manifest by Artist Arthur
