Challenge Lists

I recently joined two book reading challenges: the 2010 Debut Author Challenge and the GLBT Challenge. The Debut Author challenge challenges one to read at least 12 YA books released in 2010 by debut authors or YA debuts (for instance, if an author has an adult/kids' book already published their YA debut). The GLBT challenge challenges one to read 4/8/12 books by GLBT authors or about GLBT topics. This is an update post on both challenge lists:

Debut Author Challenge
  • Sorta Like a Rock Star by Matthew Quick (YA debut)
  • The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin by Josh Berk
  • The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
  • Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
  • Split by Swati Avasati
(Only 5 for now, but that's just debuts released in 2010 per contest rules...)

GLBT Challenge

  • 7 Days at the Hot Corner by Terry Trueman
  • My Heartbeat by Garret Freymann-Weyr
  • Tales of the Madman Underground by John Barnes
  • Two Parties, One Tux, and a Very Short Film about the Grapes of Wrath by Steven Goldman
  • Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
  • Say the Word by Jeannine Garsee
  • The Less-Dead by April Lurie
Plus depending on the exact specifications of the contest rules Every Little Thing in the World by Nina de Gramont may count. If so, 8 (Pink Triangle level) and if not 7 (almost PTL).

So that's that.
