The YA Reading Challenge 2012

A reading challenge I don't see around much is one that centers on Young Adult books.  I have started to enjoy more and more YA reads, and there are so many more people out there who read nothing but YA books.

So why not create a challenge for it?  Adding to that, Speculative Fiction has become a growing genre among Young Adult books.  Speculative Fiction is Fantasy and Urban Fantasy, which then spreads out from there to many other different themes.  Here’s a link to a site, if you are curious to see if your book falls in that genre:

With that in mind I partnered up with a great blogging buddy, Jackie from The Novel Nation and a reviewer for Book Lovers Inc. We decided to work together to get and keep this challenge going for 2012!

We are very excited to do this and hope you are as well.


~~Challengers will read YA Fantasy books (fantasy is very broad now-a-days) throughout 2012.  You can read as many books of the genre as you’d like, and link here to share, but to complete the challenge you must read. 

 40 + books    -    YA Hunter
30-39 books    -    YA Master
20-29 books    -    YA Apprentice
 10-19 books    -    YA Fledgling

~~Do a post announcing you are joining the YA Reading Challenge for 2012, with a link back here.

Readers can join the challenge anytime throughout the year.

You don’t need to pick your books ahead of time. I know there are amazing new books that will be coming out we aren’t even aware of yet that you might want to add to this list.

Please read carefully!  Yes, this is a requirement.  At the end of the year you will HAVE to do a close out post, By January 10, 2012.  We will have a linky set up here where you will HAVE to link that post up.  This is required to be eligible for prizes.  This way we can find you, and verify all required information.
  • On this post list the books with links to the reviews.  If anyone wants to go back to the reviews, they can.  Then you can mention the fun stuff:
  • Name the class of YA reader you are
  • What you seemed to sway towards in reading material; vampires, werewolves, witches, etc.
There will be a chance to win prizes at the end of the year.  But you MUST follow all requirements above.
  1 Person will win a $10 Book Gift Card
  1 Person will win a swag pack

Now wanting to help shine light on these amazing books and bring viewers to learn about new books we have created categories.  Categories in which you can come link your reviews and if someone wants to learn about some werewolf books they can go to that page, or vampires, or witches, and so on.

Dead and Resurrected   ~ Ghosts and Zombies
