2010 Debut Author Challenge

This is a way cool idea from The Story Siren! There are so many awesome YA and MG titles from brand new authors (including yours truly =]) coming out in the next twelve months. I put a button in my sidebar and will be listing titles there as I read them. I'm shooting for 20 YA debuts.

I totally love the Tenners (even though they descriminated against me because my deal didn't happen until December) and most of the titles below are from their ranks.

Here's my list so far: (in order of release date)

The Naughty List by Suzanne Young
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Sea by Heidi Kling
The DUFF by Kody Keplinger
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (read it already, but can't wait to see it in print!)

I'm missing a ton, but that's a start! To sign up for the challenge click the link above! What's on your list?


  1. Woo-hoo! Thanks for putting Nightshade on the list. I can't wait for Personal Demons to be on the shelves too!!

  2. This is a cool idea. I'll check it out.
    I've given myself a personal goal of reading a hundred books this year. Not sure if I'll make it but that's what I'm shooting for. That's how much I used to read when I was teaching and searching for YA novels that my students would connect with. There are a ton of YA titles from 2008 and 2009 that I want to read.

  3. I'm going to do this too! I just need to compile a list. I'm going to steal some from you... :)

  4. Andrea--
    Of course you're on my list, bb!

    I'd love to read that many, but I'd have to stop writing...and working...and eating...

    There are so many really great debuts this year. When said and done, I'll have trouble narrowing it down to 20. (my goal)

  5. I have made a list here of the 2010 YA Debut Authors. I added you to the list. I want to read so many of them that I can't list them all.
