YA Book Challenge 2009 - you can join, too

UPDATE MARCH 3, 2009 - I FINISHED THE CHALLENGE!!!!!! You can see my list below. That was so fun. Lots of great books in that list. It's so exciting to find so many great new books out there. And it only took me about two months! Now maybe I'll go look for another challenge that I think I can finish. There's still time for you to participate in this one if you want - join the fun!


Today I came across a book challenge here that I am 100% sure I can meet, and I'm way excited, because I often see book challenges on people's blogs that overwhelm me, and I don't like to start something I'm pretty sure I won't finish. Therefore, I am announcing my entry into the 2009 Young Adult Book Challenge, and I invite you to join me, too!

Guidelines for 2009 Young Adult Book Challenge




1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate.

2. Read 12 Young Adult novels. 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.

3. Challenge begins January thru December, 2009.

4. You can join anytime between now and December 31, 2009.

I'll be coming back to this entry to post the titles I read, but I'll do a regular review as well.

2.Now and Zen by Linda Gerber
