The YA Bloggers Debut Book Battle is hosted by Alyssa at The Shady Glade.
The YA Bloggers Debut Book Battle 2010 is a bracket-style judging contest to pick the best nominated debut work published in the last year(and a little bit of 2010).
Nominations are made and after they close, the books will be narrowed down and fit into brackets for our lovely volunteer judges to read. Starting in late April each judge(s) will read two books and choose a winner. One will move on, one will not. It will all come down to two books in a epic book battle to choose the best!
Today all the judges(Including me)will start to read there books and when the time comes we will narrow it down to one book. Now here's the final list and how it is bracketed for the battle.
