--Stepping It Up YA Reading Challenge – Read 50 Young Adult novels.
--Super Size Me YA Reading Challenge – Read 75 Young Adult novels.

4. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.

5. Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.

6. When you sign up under Mr. Linky, put the direct link to your post where your Young Adult novels will be listed. Include the URL so that other viewers can find this fun challenge. If you’d prefer to put your list in the sidebar of your blog, please leave your viewers the link to the sign up page. Again, so viewers can join the challenge too.


I will be shooting for the Stepping It Up YA Challenge (50 novels)!! Some of these will probably be re-reads, but others will be books that are currently on my TBR or that will be being released in 2010. I love reading YA, and I typically can get through them fairly quickly! I will be posting the books throughout the year as I complete them.
