2011 YA Reading Challenge

In 2010, I read 44 YA novels. Not for any challenge. Not for work. Just because. And I don't know if I'm happy with that number. I'm sure I wanted to read hundreds (seriously) more.

So, I'm very happy that Jamie is hosting the 2011 YA Reading Challenge because it will give me a reason to read even more YA. Yay. :)

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.
It's mega-size for me!  I'll list my books as I read them here...

Good luck!
You've already got a lot on your plate, but if you're interested in discovering Childrens/YA books you might not have previously heard of, I just started my fist reading challenge complete with monthly giveaways! :)
It's more of a read at your leisure and not one where you have to read a certain amount of books to "complete" the challenge, so no pressure. Hopefully it'd help motivate you to finish this challenge (by crossing over books)!
Would love to have you join if it’s something that at all interests you.
Keep up the great blogging!
Your follower,
YS Princess
