2010 Author Debuts: The Tenners

I have discovered an amazing website called 2010: A Book Odyssey, a celebration of authors who are publishing their debut novels in 2010. Since authors are my rock stars, these are my rock-stars of tomorrow (literally).

This is not an exclusively Young Adult book blog, but I have read more Young Adult fiction in the past two years than I did when I WAS a Young Adult. Well, if you are a fan like me, regardless of your age, here are the debut YA/MR books for 2010 listed by release date. Mark your calendars!

Thanks for promoting the Tenners, Alison! The ones I've read so far rock!

Hi Alison! Thanks for giving all us Tenners a shout out. I see that on your "Man's Nightstand" you have Shadow of The Wind...I loved that book! Hope you have a great 2010!

Anastasia Hopcus said...

Thanks for the wonderful post! The Tenners are a great group that I'm honored to be a part of!

Heidi R. Kling said...

Thanks for the Tenner shout-out! I hope you enjoy our books. :)

Stephanie Perkins said...

Another Tenner stopping by to say thanks!! Your support means the world to us! :)

(Did someone say Shadow of the Wind? MAN that book was awesome.)

Alison (Alison's Book Marks) said...

Can I just say how thrilled I am that so many Tenners have stopped by Alison's Book Marks? I can't wait to read your books!!

Best of luck to all of you in 2010!

BTW, I'm a huge fan of Zafon! Reading The Angel's Game now, and I'm itching to get my hands on the English translation of his YA novel, Prince of the Mist (due out May 4th 2010).

Christy Raedeke said...

BIG THANKS for featuring books by the Tenners! We debut authors couldn't do it without enthusiastic readers like you.

All the best,
Christy Raedeke
