Kristi of The Story Siren is hosting a challenge. This is the 2010 Debut Author Challenge!
I'm participating in this for two reasons.
- One: There are so many books I'm looking forward to this year and many of them are Debut Authors!
- Two: I think it's important to support new authors. It's so exciting!
This challenge is to read at least 12 books from authors debuting in 2010. The Story Siren has links that could help you to compile a list at the link below.
And one of the best parts is that anyone can participate! You don't need to have a blog to do it. So if you're interested click here to read more about it and sign up!
There are a few important guidelines so be sure to read them all before signing up!
And so here is my list of the books [by debut authors] I'm planning/hoping to read in 2010. [This is neither complete nor set in stone. Some may be added and others taken away although I highly doubt I'll be removing any of these lovely books]
