2010 Debut Author Challenge

I've finally decided to take part in the 2010 Debut Author Challenge, which is hosted by The Story Siren. I figured I might as well since I have so many of those debut novels on my TBR list. But if you're living under a rock (I mean, this challenge is HUGE) and haven't heard of it, this is what it's about:
  • The objective is to read a set number of YA (Young Adult) or MG (Middle Grade) novels from debut authors published this year.* I'm going to challenge everyone to read at least 12 debut novels! You don’t have to list your choices right away, but if you do feel free to change them throughout the year. I will also be focusing on mostly Young Adult novels.
  • 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!

So here's the list of debut YA novels that I'm planning to read in 2010:
  1. WISH by Alexandra Bullen
  2. THE SECRET YEAR by Jennifer Hubbard
  3. THE MARK by Jen Nadol
  4. MAGIC UNDER GLASS by Jaclyn Dolamore
  5. SCONES AND SENSIBILITY by Lindsay Eland
  6. PRINCES FOR HIRE by Lindsey Leavitt
  7. KARMA CLUB by Jessica Brody
  8. DELLA SAYS: OMG! WTF? by Keris Stainton
  10. THE TENSION OF OPPOSITES by Kristina McBride
  11. HUNGER by Jackie Kessler
  12. INVISIBLE GIRL by Mary Hanlon Stone
That's just a quick list, but I might add more as I read other people's reviews. :)

Anyone else taking part in this challenge?

Haha, yeah, Bleeding Violet is paranormal, isn't it? I'm not really into that. ;) As for Magic under Glass, I'm waiting for the UK edition, which comes out in February. :)
