I accept the 2012 YA Contemporary Challenge!

yacontemp03

  Contemporary YA has always been my favorite genre. Sarah Dessen is really the author that got me into reading. My blog would not exist without her books so I figure this is the perfect way to honor those books! So with the help of Angela from Reading Angel, I introduce to you the 2012 YA Contemporary Challenge!
  Levels:
Level 1: 5+ books
Level 2: 10+ books
Level 3: 15+ books
  Rules:
You can read any contemporary YA novel that is published between January 1, 2012 and December 30, 2012 but you must read them in 2012! (All formats accepted: paperback, ARC, e-book)

More info on Katie’s book blog.

So this is the very first challenge I enter Open-mouthed smile.

I’ve already read two contemporary books, Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door and I really enjoyed them.

For the year of 2012, I found that I had already marked some contemporary books as To Read on my goodreads, and to make it easy on everyone, I’ve created a public list on my Springpad (a review of it coming soon on my tech blog ;)) which contains all the books I’m planning to read, and as time comes by I’ll add moreSmile. Also, you can add this list on to your own Springpad and edit it!!! Isn’t it cool?? ^_^ (Sorry, the geek inside me is super strong Nerd smile) lol.

I’m also going to be reviewing these books on Goodreads, Shelfari, Amazon and Barnes & Noble in addition to my blog :).

I’ll try to read as many as I can, but I’ve got to find a balance between Senior year and reading. So, I think the most of this reading will be done in the breaks we get, especially in summer! Open-mouthed smile

If you have any recommendations let me know Winking smile, I’m newbie to this reading Blogosphere and I need as much help as I can get Smile.

Happy reading!
