YA Reading Challenge 2011

Well, I wasn't sure if I should sign up for a Young Adult Reading Challenge when the new year was coming in.  I didn't want to join to many challenges and fail.  I didn't know how many YA reads I would get through, and then fail for lack of.  But this year is turning out to have a few YA reads lined up, so I thought what the heck the worst case is I fail and not read enough but I can at least give it a shot.

So, I tracked down a YA Reading Challenge for 2011 and signed up.

Here are the rules as listed on For The Love of YA:

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.


  1. Oh, a YA challenge! Awesome! I'm trying my best to not sign up for any more challenges, but you're right, what's the worst that could happen? You don't finish, but at least you have fun trying!

    Good luck

  2. Fun!!!

    I'm signed up for one challenge and that's it. I'm doing a YA debut challenge!!=0

    Enjoy finding your reads for this challenge. that's the fun part!!

  3. I've already joined this and read 9 books already! I can't wait to reach my goal! Its all about the fun! :D Happy reading!

  4. Oh you found one! I think I'll stick to one challenge myself since I've not done one (well, online anyway) before. :)

  5. Alexia - :) You can sign up for a new challenge. You did a YA challenge last year right? Just think the books could overlap with other challenges too. ;D Thank you!

    Chasity - Thank you! I might have to look into the YA Debut Challenge too. I think I might have a few books that would fall into that category. :) Thank you!

    Selfcentered - Oh wow! You are really on a roll. :) So glad you are doing the YA Challenge as well. :) Thank you!

    Melissa (Books&Things) - I like doing the challenges as sometimes it shares the books with others who might enjoy it and not normally find it. ;) But, I've thought about not doing challenges too with all the books I have on the shelf already. :) Thanks!
