2010 Debut Author Challenge List

Kristi (a.k.a. The Story Siren) is hosting the 2010 Debut Author Challenge again this year. Being that I am new to this blogging thing, it will be my first year to participate in this challenge and I am super excited! If you are interested in seeing more about the challenge or even signing up, check out what Kristi has here.

This is where I'm planning on keeping track of my completed novels for the 2010 Debut Authors Challenge. Once I have my reviews posted, I'll link them here as well. I'm hoping (keep your fingers crossed) to read at least 25 debut titles this year, although I'm sure I will get to more than that, but my goal will be 25.

Here's a potential list, that will most likely be added to, deleted from, added to some more (and possibly even more...) It will all simply depend on what I get for review and so on and so forth. I'm sure I've forgotten some that I want to read. Feel free to make suggestions!! I can't believe this year is already here! Wow... where does the time go? On to the list...
