2012 Young Adult Reading Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for another 2012 Reading Challenge!


I am going to join this challenge, which is being hosted by Jamie at Bumps in the Road aka The Eclectic Bookshelf.

Here are the details copied from Jamie's blog:

Runs January 1, 2012 - December 31, 2012.

The Rules:

- Anyone can join.

- You don't need a blog to participate.

- Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post on Jamie's blog.

- Audio, eBooks, paper, re-reads all count.

- 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.


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.


I am aiming for The Mini YA Reading Challenge, which is to read 12 Young Adult novels. It might be a little out of my reach, but I'll do my best. So far this year, I have read eight YA novels.

UPDATE: CHALLENGE COMPLETED!
"MINI" LEVEL REACHED ON 28 MARCH 2012
