2009 YA Challenge

Thanks to Sharon, one of my glorious new biters, I was led to the 2009 YA Challenge on J. Kaye's blog. It seems simple enough. All I have to do is read 12 YA books between January and December of 2009. Like I said, simple. Well, I think I'll do more than that. Here's the list of YA books I plan on reading this year (I'm gonna cheat a little and start from the beginning of the year but it's ok because I'm reading way more than 12 books, and because I said so)--

  1. Cirque du Freak - The Vampire's Assistant by Darren Shan (first book read this year)
  2. Cirque du Freak - Tunnels of Blood by Darren Shan (already read)
  3. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare (already read)
  4. The Seventh Tower - The Fall by Garth Nix (done)
  5. The Seventh Tower - Castle by Garth Nix (done)
  6. The Seventh Tower - Aenir by Garth Nix (done)
  7. Dead is the New Black by Marlene Perez (done)
  8. Must Love Black by Kelly McClymer (done)
  9. Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohen and David Levithan (done)
  10. I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You by Ally Carter (done)
  11. Cathy's Book by Sean Stewart and Jordan Weisman (done)
  12. Generation Dead by Daniel Waters (done)
  13. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (done)
  14. The Vampire's Promise - Deadly Offer by Caroline B. Cooney (done)
  15. The Vampire's Promise - Evil Returns by Caroline B. Cooney (done)
  16. The Vampire's Promise - Fatal Bargain by Caroline B. Cooney (done)
  17. Vampire Beach by Alex Duval (done)
  18. The Parliament of Blood by Justin Richards (done)
  19. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne (done)
  20. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (done)
  21. The Chronicles of Narnia - The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis (done)
  22. The Chronicles of Narnia - The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis (done)
  23. The Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis (done)
  24. The Chronicles of Narnia - The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis (done)
  25. The Chornicles of Narnia - The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis (done)
  26. The Chronicles of Narnia - The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis (done)
  27. Boys That Bite by Mari Mancusi (done)
  28. Girls That Growl by Mari Mancusi (done)
  29. Stake That! by Mari Mancusi (done)
  30. ghostgirl by Tonya Hurley (done)
  31. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (done)
That's my list for now, not in any particular order and they certainly won't be read in that order. None of these are repeat reads and all of them are from my TBR of doom (and there's still more, just not YA). If I don't get through these, I might cry because I already have a back-up TBR building (on paper, at least, the books are starting to take over my room). Now I just have to work on transfering the reviews I already have up at my writing blog over here. That alone is a mighty task.

I'm a huge zombie fan so I'm really looking forward to Generation Dead. ::bite::

I'm not a zombie fan per say, but they're definitely cool!

Thanks, LisaMay! Consider yourself blogrolled! You too Sharon!
