2010 Debut Author Challenge!

The Story Siren has had a 2010 Debut Author Challenge going on all year.  Basically, Kristi is challenging everyone to read at least 12 books by debut authors this year.  I have been meaning to check it out and sign up for...well...all year.  :)  But it's been a busy year, and I've been reading as much as I've intended, so I don't feel too bad for taking so long to sign up.  :)

Anyway, now that I have, here's a list of 2010 debut books I've read so far this year:
1. Possessed by Kate Cann
2. The Sixty-Eight Rooms by Marianne Fineberg
3. The Clearing by Heather Davis
4. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
5. This Gorgeous Game by Donna Freitas
6. Nomansland by Lesley Hauge
7. Birthmarked by Caragh O'Brien
8. Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
9. Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson
10. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
11. The Wish Stealers by Tracy Trivas
12. Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler
13. Halo by Alexandra Adornetto
14. Tell Me A Secret by Holly Cupala
15. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
16. The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
17. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer
18. All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab
19. The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy
20. Matched by Ally Condie
21. The Tension of Opposites by Kristina McBride
22. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
23. Brightly Woven by Alexandra Bracken
24. Stolen by Lucy Christopher

I still plan to read the following (and probably more):
Everlasting by Angie Frazier
Sea by Heidi Kling
The DUFF by Kody Keplinger
Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt
Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves
The Line by Teri Hall

Whether or not I'll be able to read all of these before the year is out is another question entirely...  :)

So, is anyone else signed up?  Is anyone else going to sign up?  Am I the last one to finally get going (officially) on this?  :)

I haven't signed up, but I've possible read nearly ten. I should sign up and be a part - you've motivated me :)

Also, I like your list :)

Thanks! I just added more to my list, and I'll probably add even more before the year is out.

If you're nearing ten already, you should definitely sign up. :)

I haven't signed up but I'm definitely trying to read debut authors. I've read a number on your list and have others in a stack to read. I just finished The Body Finder & really liked it. I just started Mistwood by Leah Cypess.

I enjoyed The Body Finder too. :)

Right now, I'm reading Hunger. Not sure about it yet...
