2010 Young Adult Reading Challenge

OK! Here’s another challenge that I’ve decided to join for 2010 and it’s the Young Adult Reading Challenge hosted by J. Kaye. I am going with “The Mini YA Reading Challenge” where participants read 12 YA books. There are several other levels so please find out more at her blog.

YA is one of my favorite genres. For this challenge, I browsed through my LibraryThing inventory under the YA tag and came up with the following more-or-less-definite and alternate lists, as a rough guide:

A more-or-less-definite list
  1. Brisingr by Christopher Paolini
  2. Changeling by Steve Feasey
  3. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
  4. Jinx by Meg Cabot
  5. Ordinary Ghosts by Eireann Corrigan
  6. Ransom My Heart by Meg Cabot and Mia Thermopolis
  7. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
  8. Stolen by Lucy Christopher
  9. The Society of S by Susan Hubbard
  10. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner
  11. The Wind Singer by William Nicholson
  12. Tithe by Holly Black
Alternate list
  1. Double Exposure by Kathy Wierenga
  2. Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
  3. Opportunity Knocks Twice by David Lambert
  4. Silverwing by Kenneth Oppel
  5. The Goose Girl by Shannon
  6. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
I am also leaving some buffer for TWO more challenges that I want to re-participate next year, if they are happening (I hope they will!) and those are Manga Challenge by Rhinoa and R.I.P. by Carl V. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
