Two more challenges down!

I'm on a roll! :-) I can add two more challenges to my finished list: the Childhood Favorites Challenge and the YA Challenge.

The Childhood Favorites Challenge was hosted by Lynda from Lynda's Book Blog.

Here's what I read:
in Polish: Brzechwa Dzieciom by Jan Brzechwa
in Polish: Szosta Klepka by Malgorzata Musierowicz
Anne of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Sleeping Beauty and Other Stories

I enjoyed all of them, but that's no big surprise considering they are favorites from when I was younger! :-) Many thanks to Lynda for hosting, I enjoyed this!


The Young Adult Challenge was hosted by J. Kaye. It's actually running till the end of the year, so I'm really early, but it seems that YA is my preferred genre this year, probably because I need something light to offset the real life stuff that's been going on.

Anyway, here's what I read:
Anatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky
The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry
The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Messenger by Lois Lowry
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
Story of a Girl by Sara Zarr
Sweethearts by Sara Zarr
Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Vegan, Virgin, Valentine by Carolyn Mackler

So many of these were good! If I had to choose, I'd say that Twilight, Life as We Knew It and The Outsiders were my favorites - but all the others were great too!

Thanks J.Kaye, this was great! :-)
