The 2010 Young Adult Reading Challenge

J. Kaye's Book Blog is hosting the 2010 Young Adult Reading Challenge.  More info here.

  • Challenge begins January 1st thru December, 2010.
  • Audio, eBooks, re-reads all count.  
  • 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.

My thoughts:

I want to read more YA this year (I found them to be more straight forward!).  There are 4 levels (12, 25, 50 and 75 books) and since I read less than 30 fiction last year, I will stick with the 12 books Mini Challenge.

  1. Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
