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.
