2011 Young Adult Reading Challenge

 For more info, click the button above
I participated in the Young Adult Reading Challenge last year, but that host (J. Kaye) is no longer blogging. Jaime over at For the Love of YA has picked the challenge up though and I'm joining again.

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.

Awesome goal, Nikki! I know you'll be able to do it, and I can't wait to read all your reviews :)

I'm only going for 40 YA books because A) I only read a total of 58 books last year and B) I want to read more MG this year. Hope you reach your goal. :D
