2010 Debut Author Challenge

Kristi is running the 2010 Debut Author Challenge next year. This is the one challenge that I really stick with every year, so here's my list!

Don't know what I'm talking about? Here's the guidlines:
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 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!

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

Sooo without further ado, here is what I plan to read for this challenge:

1. The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin - Josh Berk
2. Brightly Woven - Alexandra Bracken
3. The Absolute Value of -1 - Steve Breezenoff

Hi! I think this challenge is so awesome, and I'm bummed I won't be able to be a part of it. RIVAL is now coming out in early 2011. If you do a challenge for 2011 books, please include me then!
