2013 YA + MG Time Travel Reading Challenge

Hi, everyone! Time for a 2013 Reading Challenge!!

This challenge is being hosted by Precious at Fragments of Life.and Dianne at Oops! I Read a Book Again.

Here are the details copied from Precious' blog:
2013 YA + MG Time Travel Reading Challenge

Challenge Guidelines:

1. The challenge will run from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. You can sign up anytime of the year.

2. Anyone can enter. You don't have to be a blogger but you'd have to be a reviewer (Goodreads/Shelfari/Amazon/anywhere).

3. You can read any YA or MG time travel books. There aren't lots so we don't want to restrict you to a publication date, just with the genre.

4. If you're a blogger, make a post about your joining the challenge on your blog and put the direct link when you sign up for the linky. You can include a list of Time Travel books that you want to read for the challenge. It can serve as your guide. If you're not a blogger but a reviewer (you can post your reviews on Goodreads, etc) tweet about your joining the challenge and put the direct link when you sign up!

Here is a sample tweet: I'm joining the #YAandMGTimeTravelReadingChallenge @precious_shusky @oopsireadagain! 

5. You can move up levels but we do not encourage moving down.

6. At the end of each month, the hosts will put up a wrap-up post. It will feature a time travel book and an interview or guest post from its author (and maybe a giveaway). All you have to do is link up reviews to the YA & MG time travel books you've read for the month. For each review you link up, you will get one entry for the giveaway. The giveaway will run for one week and then we'll choose the lucky winner!

7. If you miss a wrap-up post and the giveaway, you can join the next one. Please be guided though that reviews can only be linked ONCE. We will definitely check your entries (and read your reviews).

8. Lastly, for bloggers, post the button on your sidebar and link back to us!


Nostalgic Traveler - 3 books

Year Hopper - 5 books

Time Slipper - 7 books

Era Switcher - 10 books
