2010 Debut Author Challenge

I'm making a goal to read as much as possible this year (hey, I just finished two books the other day... I can read 2 at a time, 1 for the morning, 1 for the night) and I stumbled upon this challenge that The Story Siren is hosting called the 2010 Debut Author Challenge where the goal is to read 12 YA or MG books written by debut authors in 2010.

Here's my list so far of what I'm hoping to read:
1. The Naughty List by Suzanne Young   
2. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
3. Whisper by Phoebe Kitanidis
4. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins 
5. The Mark by Jen Nadol
6. Firespell by Chloe Neil 
7. Tell Me A Secret by Holly Cupala 
8. The Tension of Opposites by Kristina McBride 
9. The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy 
10. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White 
11. The Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea Campbell
12. The Karma Club by Jessica Brody

I'm hoping to read much, much more... it took me so long to narrow it down to 12 books because it looks like there's some great novels being released by debut authors this year.

Thank you for the list. I'll definitely check out the titles. My niece read the last Twilight Series book in four hours. She devours books and it's great to have a list to encourage her to read.
