2012 Dystopian Reading Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for another 2012 Reading Challenge!!


I have always loved dystopian movies, and I have recently discovered the genre. I want to read more dystopian novels, so I'm joining this challenge which is being hosted by Benji at The Non Reluctant Reader.

Here are the details copied from Benji's blog:


Sign Up

Rules:

• This challenge lasts from January 1st, 2012 to December 31st, 2012

• All books must be started on/after January 1st, 2012

• Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.

• After the challenge has started, you can decide to choose a higher level, but you can not choose to go down a level.

• All books must be dystopian (duh) and either Young Adult or Middle Grade (I can't think of any MG dystopian though).

• Must post all your reviews to either your blog or goodreads. Sorry, non blogging folks!

• Must create a sign-up post that includes a link to this post, the level you've signed up for, and the button above.

• Must sign-up before June 1st, 2012.


Important Info:

• After each month I will do a recap where you can link your reviews, I will also declare what the prize will be for the current month and the winner of last month's giveaway.

• Each month there will be a giveaway for all those who reviewed a book, each review = one entry. The giveaway item could range from a gift card, a book, swag, and more.


The Levels:

• Easy: Read 5-8 books.
• Medium: Read 8-14 books.
• Hard: 15-20 books.
• So Hard it Would Have it's Own Apocalypse!: 21+



I'm aiming for Easy Level (read 5-8 books).
