2009 Young Adult Book Challenge

Another day another challenge. I just signed up for what will be the last challenge I'm joining this year. I'm up to five and adding anymore would be crazy.

The 2009 Young Adult Challenge is being hosted by J.Kaye of J. Kaye's Book Blog. The goal of this challenge is to read 12 young adult novels between January 2009 and December 2009.

This is the challenge that I'm most excited about because, for me, it is the most challenging. I haven't read YA faithfully since I was a young adult, and even though I still go out and buy YA novels, I rarely ever give them a second look once I get them home. This was just the push I needed to help me whittle down my stack of Young Adult books.


  1. I'm up to five and adding anymore would be crazy.

    lol. And I was afraid to do more than two! You're a braver woman than I!
    Actually, this YA one and the audiobook one also looked like fun. (As well as the Category and 1st in a series.) Man. So tempting.

  2. Hey, this is awesome! I'm doing this one too, we can help each other's gonna be fun. At the moment, I'm participating in 6 but I made sure to participate in the ones that I know I can I'm really excited about this year's reading!

  3. Wooooot ... 5 challenges! :-D Don't forget to have fun, above all.

  4. Renee- All of the challenges this year are so tempting, I had a hard time not joining them. But I'm done now. No more.

    Wena- Yay, we can help encourage each other! I made sure to join ones that I knew I could complete. I'm excited about this reading year, too. It is already off to a great start!

    Jace- Yes, 5. But I will have fun with them. :)

  5. Yay!!! I'm so glad you signed up for this YA Challenge, too! I scanned the list of participants, but didn't catch Rowena's name there. I'm so excited to know that a few people with whom I comment with regularly are in this one. It will help us um.... pressure each other better! ;p

  6. Hi Christine, I'm in! And yes, we can keep each other motivated!

    Twitter is super addictive, but it is also so much fun.
