2011 Young Adult Reading Challenge

I participated in this last year when it was hosted by J.Kaye Book Blog, but I she wasn't hosting it this year so, well, I was at a loss. But then I found this at For the Love of YA, so why not join! Thank you Jamie for hosting!! =) Also, if you want to see how I did last year, click here!

Here are the rules:

1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate. Create a post about the challenge and link your challenge post up in the linky below.
--Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post.

2. There are four levels:

--The Mega size YA Reading Challenge – Read 50+ Young Adult novels.

3. Audio, eBooks, paper, re-reads all count.
