YA Challenge

I have been slacking on the challenges lately, so I went on a search for one that would be perfect for me and I have found it. The YA challenge is especially great because I read YA anyway and so it may actually get done. The Challenge is that I read 12 YA titles in 2008.

So Here is the list I have as of right now of what I would like to read:

1. Fablehaven: Grip of the Shadow Plague (book 3) by Brandon Mull (To be released April 12th) Finished 5/13/08 Shadow Plague Review
2. Farworld-Water by JScott Savage (Coming out in September I believe)
3. The Comeback Season by Jennifer E. Smith
3. Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor
4. Maximum Ride-The Final Warning by James Patterson
5. The Book Theif by Marcus Zusak
6. Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pheffer
7. Looking for Alaska by John Green
8. Uglies by Scott Westerfield
9. The Penderwicks on Gardam Street by Jeanne Birdsall
Finished 4/14/08 Penderwick Review
10. Once Upon a Time in the North by Phillip Pullman
11. Tweak by Nic Sheff
12. Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer (To Be released August 2nd)
13. Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen (To Be released April)
14. Thou Shall Not Dump The Skater Dude...and other commandments I have broken by Rosemary Graham Finished 4/18/08

The Book Thief is long, but it reads quickly. I Am the Messenger, also by Zusak, is amazing as well. I've heard good reviews of Life as We Knew It and Once Upon a Time in the North. And I just finished Honey, Baby, Sweetheart - it was pretty good. Another YA book I enjoyed recently is How to Be Bad by E. Lockhart, Lauren Myracle, and Sarah Mlynowski. Good luck with your challenge!
