Reading Challenge!

I haven’t tried doing a reading challenge over here yet, but I just can’t resist The Story Siren. (Heh. See what I did there?) This particular challenge is all about reading debut Middle Grade/Young Adult novels. The idea is to read and review at least 12 titles in 2011. While I read children’s books by many different authors, I can get in a bit of a rut when it comes to YA. I’m looking forward to encountering some fabulous new authors.

My preliminary list:

  1. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
  2. Rival by Sarah Bennett Wealer
  3. Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
  4. 10 Miles Past Normal by Frances O’Roark Dowell
  5. The Great Wall of Lucy Wu by Wendy Wan-Long
  6. Dogsled Dreams by Terry Lynn Johnson
  7. The Fourth Stall by Chris Rylander
  8. I Am J by Cris Beam
  9. The Year We Were Famous by Carole Estby Dagg
  10. Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
  11. Warped by Maurissa Guibord
  12. What Can’t Wait by Ashley Hope Pérez

Watch this space (or my GoodReads profile) for the reviews. And thanks to Kristi for putting this together!

  1. Thank you for including The Year We Were Famous on your list of books to read next year! I’m a retired librarian and weaver so I hope we have enough in common that what I enjoy writing you’ll enjoy reading.

    1. Thanks for coming by! I’m really looking forward to reading it. I’ve had Bold Spirit in my To-Be-Read queue for a while, so I’m thinking of reading both of them in 2011 now.
