2011 Young Adult Reading Challenge

Last year I participated in the Young Adult Reading Challenge host at J. Kaye's blog. As a matter of fact it was the only one of four challenges I participated in that I actually completed. I know, sad. Anyhow, I was glad to see it's being hosted again in 2011, this time by Jaime at For the Love of YA. 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.



Ok so I'll be doing The Jumbo Size this year. Last year I did the 50 and read more than that BUT I'm wanting to read more MG this year plus if I get accepted into college, I'll have less time for reading. So 40 it is. As I complete each YA book, it will be listed below.
