After visiting Bookfoolery and Babble's post, I just couldn't hold back any longer. I know Caribousmom who has compiled reading challenges at A Novel Challenge is going to think I'm out of my mind, along with my friend from Blogging My Books, but I just HAVE to do this and hope that you will join me in:

The YOUNG ADULT Challenge!

I'm thinking that this challenge will be very similar to the First in a Series Challenge, if not exact, but I'll get back with you on the specifics, including a button and Mister Linky to sign up. I just HAD to share my excitement.

I have to admit, I don't have many titles lined up for this one; however, many, many bloggers are reading them, so we should get an influx of great titles. Woo Hoo! I hope you'll start thinking of a YA list and join in on the fun. :)

So, what do you think?


  1. Crazy? Nah! LOL...nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to reading challenges! Love the creativity. I'll wait to post on the blog until you get specifics up :)

  2. Joy - I am relatively new to the blogosphere of reading and challenges. I have completed the Newbery challenge and am ongoing with the Newbery project. Believe me there is loads of interest out there for this - I am sure you will attract many like minded readers! Just today I have got Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi out of my library - it is a cartoon aimed at the YA world. I will share the Challenge!

  3. A YA challenge would be great and fairly easy, since YA books are quick to read. I'd love to hear the specifics on this one!

  4. What a terrific idea, Joy!! I love YA novels. Some are so good that it pains me to see them set apart from the general fiction sections.

  5. Wendy ~ I really appreciate your blog, A Novel Challenge. There were many that I didn't even know existed. Thanks for doing that. :)

    Juliette ~ I hope you'll join me. And...I'll come by your blog for a visit.

    Susan ~ You are so right! YA's are quick reads making this a very easy challenge. The even better news for us is that quick and easy doesn't mean lame.

    Bookfool ~ Thanks for the inspiration. :)

  6. Joy, I think you are definitely crazy! I'll probably join up just to prove how crazy I am. LOL I do have several YA novels I'm planning to read next year, so this challenge will be perfect.

  7. Booklogged ~ Us crazies need to stick together! :) Can't wait to see your list.

  8. I think this challenge would fit me to a T. I'll have to think about the list.

  9. Sherry ~ Oh good! It'll be great to have have you join us. :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
