2012 YA Contemporary Challenge

Hey all!!!

Katie, from Katie's Book Blog had the amazing idea of hosting a YA Contemporary Challenge, and since I adore YA Contemps, I've decided to cohost with her!!!

I hope you decide to join the challenge and read with us!! It's sure to be a ton of fun, and you can win fun stuff along the way!

There are different levels that you can choose to challenge yourself in:
Level 1: 5+ books
Level 2: 10+ books
Level 3: 15+ books

You can read any contemporary YA novel that is published between January 1, 2012and December 30, 2012 but you must read them in 2012! (All formats accepted: paperback, ARC, e-book)

Books included:
We have created a spreadsheet (organized by release date) for contemporary YA books published in 2012. If there is a book that is not on the spreadsheet that you know fits the guidelines, let us know and we will add it.  There is also a Goodreads list.  You can use either one.  Currently the spreadsheet has more books on it.

If you have a contemporary YA book coming out in 2012 we would love it if you would participate. We would love it if you would be interested in donating swag/books or being featured here on Reading Angel or Katie's Book Blog. If you are interested, fill out the form here

Anyone who has a blog or a Goodreads where they can post reviews is eligible to participate.

Why you should participate:
Contemporary YA is an awesome genre. Isn’t that enough of a reason?

If not, there will also be giveaways throughout the year as well as one grand prize giveaway at the end of the year. Does that motivate you? =)

How to sign up:
Create a list on your blog or Goodreads with your list of books. You can create a list of books that you want to read or start a blank list and add the books as you read them. Once you have created your list come back here and add it to the linky below! Make sure that you post it on the same blog/Goodreads that you are going to post your reviews on throughout the year. Also, please grab one of our buttons to show your contemp challenge love!!

Sign-ups end May 1, 2012
