I haven’t tried doing a reading challenge over here yet, but I just can’t resist The Story Siren. (Heh. See what I did there?) This particular challenge is all about reading debut Middle Grade/Young Adult novels. The idea is to read and review at least 12 titles in 2011. While I read children’s books by many different authors, I can get in a bit of a rut when it comes to YA. I’m looking forward to encountering some fabulous new authors.
My preliminary list:
- Across the Universe by Beth Revis
- Rival by Sarah Bennett Wealer
- Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
- 10 Miles Past Normal by Frances O’Roark Dowell
- The Great Wall of Lucy Wu by Wendy Wan-Long
- Dogsled Dreams by Terry Lynn Johnson
- The Fourth Stall by Chris Rylander
- I Am J by Cris Beam
- The Year We Were Famous by Carole Estby Dagg
- Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
- Warped by Maurissa Guibord
- What Can’t Wait by Ashley Hope Pérez
Watch this space (or my GoodReads profile) for the reviews. And thanks to Kristi for putting this together!
