Challenge: 2010 Debut Authors

This challenge is hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren and is the first challenge that I've ever joined. (I've made up my own, but it's nothing special...more later.)
You are challenged to read as many books during the year 2010 from debut authors! Because I love to read and a few were already on my list I thought I should go ahead and join!
You can check out more information and sign up to join by clicking here.
The challenge is running from January 1st to December 31st, 2010. And include books by first time authors published between those months.
You can see the full list of books in the challenge on goodreads or click here. Books are added all the time so make sure to keep coming back!
Now, here is the list of books that I've chosen to read for this challenge. The ones that are crossed out have already been read and if "review" is in parenthesis next to it click that to see my review!
