hosted by Jamie of For The Love of YA
Last year I participated in the Young Adult Challenge that J. Kaye's book blog was hosting. But from what I can see J. Kaye isn't blogging anymore and I really wanted to do this challenge again.
Here are the rules:
1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate. Create a post about the challenge and link your challenge post up in the linky below.
--Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post.
2. There are four levels:
--The Mini YA Reading Challenge – Read 12 Young Adult novels.
--The "Fun Size" YA Reading Challenge – Read 20 Young Adult novels.
--The Jumbo Size YA Reading Challenge – Read 40 Young Adult novels.
--The Mega size YA Reading Challenge – Read 50+ Young Adult novels.
3. Audio, eBooks, paper, re-reads all count.
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. The Challenge starts on January 1, 2011 and goes until December 31, 2011.
I could not pass this challenge up even though I did not do well in 2010! BUT, with my goals of increasing my reading and writing this upcoming year as well as diminishing my TBR shelves filled with YA, I am sure to do better than 2010! I've got high expectations of this one, so wish me luck . . . The Mega Size YA Reading Challenge - Read 50+ Young Adult novels! (What did I just do?!?) Here's the list with links as available:
