2009 Young Adult Challenge

J. Kaye is hosting the 2009 Young Adult Challenge. It was through blogging that I discovered the world of young adult books and I love them. I'm glad that there's a challenge because now I'll have loads of ideas for next year too!

The idea is to read 12 books between 1 January and 31 December 2009.

I'm not doing final lists in 2009, only long lists of possibilities that I may or may not add to as the year progresses. :-)

Completed: ALL 12/12 as of 15 June 2009 (see my wrap-up post here)
