Announcing: The 2012 YA Audiobook Challenge

[UPDATE 1-8-12] Please go to the new YA Audiobook Challenge page for full details, and to sign up!

A Book and a Latte is jumping into the 2012 challenge craze! I decided, um... today, to host a 2012 Young Adult Audiobook Challenge! I haven't seen a YA specific audiobook challenge anywhere, and since I modified one last year for the YA genre, I decided to start my own. 

If you follow this blog, or see me on twitter, you probably know that I adore audiobooks. Listening to a book while doing chores or mundane tasks somehow makes them easier or at least not so bad, and they make hours in the car fly by... If you haven't given audiobooks a try, use this challenge as motivation to do so! 

The Goal:
Listen and review at least 12 audiobooks (released any year) of the YA genre in 2012. 

  • Listen to at least 12 YA audiobooks in between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012
  • Review the audiobooks on either your blog or goodreads.com, and then link them up here each month!
    • Reviews should include the length of the audiobook and name of narrator(s) at minimum, and also include your opinion of the narrator(s)/production.
    • There will be a linky open here each month to link up your reviews. You don't have to link a review each month, however to complete the challenge you must link a total of 12 by the end of 2012. 
    • Feel free to link more than 12 reviews, as long as they meet the criteria (YA audiobooks).
  • Declare yourself a challenge participant (blog post, facebook, and/or twitter) and link your post in the linky below! 
  • HAVE FUN :)
I hope you join me with this challenge! I can't wait to see what audiobooks everyone selects, and to read your reviews! Don't forget to declare and sign-up in the linky below!

There will be at least one prize giveaway, hopefully more! Participants will automatically be entered, but each linked review will count as an additional entry.

If you're interested in donating books/audiobooks or swag to be used in giveaways for this challenge please don't hesitate to contact me!
