Challenges

A list of challenges I've joined, simply to kick start myself into reading within a time limit!

2010 Debut Authors Challenge


A challenge run by Kristi at the Story Siren which you should definately join, it sounds so much fun! Just click the link, it'll send you to information page, the sign up link is on that post as well.

The new books coming out in 2010 sound fantastic, I can't wait! Anyway, here's my list of (possible) books, the possible accounting for the fact that amazon.co.uk fails continually with actually getting some of them in stock, and the fact that I don't know much about them yet but I'll make a more definite decision closer to the time of their release.

1. The False Princess by Eilis O'Neal (May)

2. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (February - looking forward to this one x)

3. Forget-Her-Nots by Amy Brecount White (March)

4. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkings (released in March)

5. Mistwood by Leah Cypress (April)

6. Everlasting by Angie Frazier (June, birthday month ;D)

7. Other by Karen Kincy (July)

8. Voices of Dragons by Carrie Vaughn (March)

9. Claire de Lune by Christine Johnson (May)

10. Nightshade by Andrea Cremer (October) / Whisper by Phoenix Kitanidis (April)

11. Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt (March)

12. Plain Kate by Erin Bow

The dates are there just so I know when to get my orders in, they're not a reading order although, saying that, I can't exactly read a book I don't have can I?
