YA Challenge 2009

Who could resist joining this fun challenge hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog? Not me, that's for sure! I imagine I will read more than the twelve YA books required for this challenge, but for me the fun is the community and discussion that result when so many book lovers read together. So thank you, J. Kaye!

I am not going to put together a list in advance, because that tends to take the fun out of it for me, so I will post my twelve books here as I go along, and link to this post from the challenge button on the sidebar.

1. The Riddle by Allison Croggon
2. 3 Willows: The Sisterhood Grows by Ann Brashares
3. Boneyard, Volume 1 by Richard Moore
4. Bewitching Season
by Marissa Doyle
5. Beyond the Deepwoods by Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell
6. The Sea of Trolls by Nancy Farmer
7. The Circle of Blood by Alane Ferguson
8. Flora Segunda by Ysabeau Wilce
9. Rogue's Home by Hilari Bell
10. The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl by Barry Lyga
11. The Death Collector by Justin Richards
12. Tender Morsels by Margo Lanagan


  1. Have fun with the challenge, Darla!

  2. Ooh have fun, started off with a good one!

  3. Thanks, Nymeth and Mariel. It almost feels like cheating to join this one, because YA is mostly what I read! But still, it'll be fun to see what everyone else reads (even though it's sure to add gobs of books to my pile, sigh).

  4. Thanks, Ladytink - you'll be hearing all about it! :-)

  5. I just started reading your blog, and I think it's great.
    Hopefully I'll find and read these books.
    Keep it going :)

  6. Thanks, Denise! And thank you for visiting - please stop by and share your thoughts if you read any of them!

  7. Wanted to stop in and welcome you to the YA Reading Challenge. If you haven't already, feel free to join us at the Yahoo Groups where others are participating in this challenge as well as others.

    Also, the links to post your reviews are up in the right sidebar at J. Kaye’s Book Blog.

  8. Hi, J. Kaye - Thanks for hosting the challenge. It's fun to see what books everyone's reading. I will definitely check out the Yahoo site, too - sounds like a great place to go!
