2010 Young Adult Reading Challenge

The lovely J. Kaye is hosting a young adult reading challenge that I've decided to participate in.  Yes, I know I'm three days late, but oh well!  So this is the one I've decided to join:

--Stepping It Up YA Reading Challenge – Read 50 Young Adult novels.

I will be posting over at J. Kaye's blog as I finish the books.  I will link from here to there so you can also keep track of what I'm reading.  I will also take recommendations from my readers.  So keep an eye out when I post a rec reading challenge!

So my first book right now is:

1. Before I Fall, Lauren Oliver.  Some thoughts on the first 50 pages.  I don't like the protagonist.  She comes across as demeaning and just plain mean.  I would never have been friends with the group that she hangs out with.  This book definitely has a "Mean Girls" vibe to it.  Perhaps if protag was nicer, I could understand what she is going through, but right now she's got a lot to learn and this is NOT a small book.


  1. This is a great challenge that I am doing as well. YA was a new genre for me last year and I love it!

  2. Oh Sheila, YA is so amazing. So many great authors out there! and Heck, I'm old so anyone can read them! :)

  3. I have found a website that compiles various resources on starting a non profit. I especially like the Minnesota Council of NonProfits because the site gives information on governance, developing strategic alliances, fund raising and other ingredients of successfully running a non profit.

  4. Welcome to the Young Adult Reading Challenge. This is going to be a fun reading year.

    Happy New Year!!
