The Story Siren's 2010 Debut Author Challenge

The Story Siren's Kristi is hosting a great challenge for readers this year- The 2010 Debut Author Challenge. I'm a little late in hopping on the bandwagon since it is already May, but what the heck.

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.* I'm going to challenge everyone to read at least 12 debut novels! I’m hoping to read at least 30! 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, or any other bookish site.
  • The challenge will run from January 1, 2010- December 31, 2010. You can join at anytime!

She gives away great prize packs every month, so it's worth a shot! If you're interested in taking part in this fantastic challenge, click here. You can also check out the list she made of books with 2010 release dates here. Good luck!
