The A-Z Challenge Wrap Up

2012 is behind us now and so is this particular reading challenge!

How did you all do? I started off well but real life got in the way and poor Melissa had to do all of the work from there :(

I've wrapped up my own progress on my blog, The Novel Nation, but as a hint, I only managed level 2. It's a good thing I love Alphabet Soup then, right?

Now for the bonus (and the thing that I totally forgot to mention at the beginning of the year :p ) Those of you that participated and linked throughout the year, are eligible for a special prize from us! Simply link up your own close out post below and you'll be entered for a chance to win a book from the Book Depository valued up to $10. What a great way to get started on your reading goals for the New Year, right?!

Thanks to the small number of participants that joined in with us for 2012. May 2013 be bigger and wordier for you all :)

You have until Jan. 20, 2013 to enter your links.

The YA Reading Challenge 2012 Close Out

This is it.  It's been a full year since we started this challenge and I've learned a lot about how to do this.  It was completely new to me when we started, but know I have a feel for it.

This is the place to link your year wrap-up to.

You remember this stipulation to enter to for the giveaway right:
~~MUST FINISH THE YEAR! 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.

Creatures with Bite ~ Vampires and Werewolves 
Dead and Resurrected ~ Ghosts and Zombies 
Brews and Salves ~ Witches and Healers 
Things with wings ~ Fairies and Angels 
Swords and Magic ~ Fantasy

The place to link up and be entered for the giveaway.  You will have until, January 20, 2013, to post your wrap-up post and link here.  I know with the holidays it's crazy and hard to get all the posts done, so that's why we are giving you some time to get through your posts and post.

I'll be posting mine on my blog and linking up here.
