December 8th, 2008 by Debbie's World of Books


J. Kaye is hosting a young adult book challenge.  Yes, I know I shouldn’t get overloaded on challenges since I’m just starting off but there are quite a few YA books that I have been wanting to read so I figured why not.

Guidelines for 2009 Young Adult Book Challenge

1. Anyone can join. You don’t need a blog to participate.

    Hey, I’ll do this challenge! I’m about to start The Sweet Far Thing myself.

    I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the latter two Vampire Academy books; I’ve been using the series as a bit of a punching bag over on my blog.

    Elizabeth, I just read your posting and agree with some of your comments but I still loved the series :)

    I am having a heck of a time getting on your blog. Something with the server having issues. :(
