2010 Debut Author Challenge Post

Hello! I've decided to take part in the 2010 debut author challenge, hosted by The Story Siren! I'm going to try to read fifteen.

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!
* I would like to limit the novels to those released in 2010.

1. Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves
2. The Secret Year by Jennifer R. Hubbard
3. The Mark by Jen Nadol
4. The Naughty List by Suzanne Young
5. Forget Her Nots by Amy Brecount White
6. The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy
7. The Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea Campbell

That's all I have planned at the moment. The rest will be picked later on!

Emma Out!


  1. Thanks so much for including Forget-Her-Nots, Emma! I've read #6 & 7, and they're both really fun.

  2. You are very welcome. Your book looks fantastic! They both look great and I cannot wait to read them all!

  3. Good choices, I'm planning to read several of those too! And if you need any recommendations, I'd definitely go with Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (if you haven't read it yet), it's one of the best books I've ever read!
    Anyway, good luck with the challenge! :)

  4. Oh fantastic! I'll have to put that on my list! Thanks, and you too!

  5. woohoo!! thanks for joining the debut author challenge! it's going to be so much fun! and you have a great start to your list! good luck!
