2010 Debut Authors Challenge!

Randomly decided I should try to do this... :)

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.

Books I've read so far:
Thirteen Reasons Why

My 12th novel will be one of these three:
The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
Tyger, Tyger
I Am Number Four by Pitticus Lore

Read-a-thon Update 1

I'm getting SO distracted reading all of the blogs by other people doing the Undoubtables Read-a-thon! It's totally counter-productive, is what I'm saying. ^_^ Why is it that reading about other people reading is just as much fun as, well, actually READING?

I also had to spread compost this morning.

However, despite all this, I finished my first book! Yay! :D Geek's Guide: Done and done! I only had 87 pages left of it to read, BUT it's tiny, nonfiction text! there!
It's a pretty fun and interesting book, all told. Pretty much gives you an overview of geeky information. The math/science bits made me go O.O but the other stuff was really fun...especially logic stuff.

My buddy kemendraugh let me know about this read-a-thon going on this weekend. I'm a bit late but I'm going to GO for it! I have a bunch of books I still need to get read this summer.

SO! My goals:
-finish The Geek's Guide to World Domination by Garth Sundem
-finish The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
-make progress on Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales

I'll just see how it goes. ^_^
