The 2010 Debut Author Challenge

The Story Siren is hosting The 2010 Debut Author Challenge!
Read more about the challenge here, and sign up for the challenge here.

Here's my Challenge list so far. My goal is to read and review at least 2 books a month. I'll be updating this list as I find more new debut authors to read.

As soon as I finish reading one, I'll mark it--as soon as I finish reviewing it, the title/author will link to my review.
