2012 Challenges

I'm participating in several challenges this year, as well as hosting the 2012 YA Audiobook Challenge.  I'll be updating this page to track my progress with them all. If interested, you can see my 2011 challenges here.

PhotobucketI've set a goal to read 120 books in 2012 for the Goodreads Reading Challenge. You can see what books I've read so far this year here.

This year I'm officially participating in the Debut Author Challenge hosted by The Story Siren! Last year I wasn't able to join before the cut-off date so I was an unofficial participant :). I discovered fantastic authors and books through this challenge, so I'm really excited for this year.

Here is a list of 2012 debuts I've read so far this year:

1. Fracture by Megan Miranda

PhotobucketOf course I have to participate in my own challenge! You can find all the details for the Young Adult Audiobook Challenge here. Thankfully, I'll be able to count these toward Teresa's Audio Book Challenge (see below) as well.

Here are links to my reviews for the challenge:

1. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour (review coming soon!)

The 2012 Audio Book Challenge is hosted by Teresa's Reading Corner. It's no secret that I'm a HUGE fan of audiobooks! I love that I can read/listen to my book while doing mundane chores, walking the pupdog, or whatever. There are 4 levels to this challenge:

Flirting - Listen to 6 Audio Books
Going Steady - Listen to 12 Audio Books
Lover - Listen to 25 Audio Books
Married - Listen to +++ Audio Books

I'm tackling the Married level. I've GOT this :). Here's a list of the ones I've listened to so far:
  1. Amy & Roger's Epic Detour
  2. Legend by Marie Lu
  3. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
  4. Wake by Lisa McMann

In 2011, I realized how much I love contemporaries, so I thought it'd be fun to join the YA Contemporary Challenge 2012 hosted by Katie's Book Blog and Reading Angel. I'm looking forward to reading new 2012 contemporary releases, and I have several in mind already! I'm challenging myself to read 10+ books (level 2).  Here's my list so far:

1. Fracture by Megan Miranda
2. Chopsticks by Jessica Anthony

I will be challenging myself to read and review 12 books in 2012 for the Slay the Read Paranormal Reading Challenge hosted by OtherwhereCo. This will be a challenge, especially the mini challenges that are listed over on the site. Maybe it will be easier than I think, it's just that it seems like I've been in the mood for contemporaries lately! I'll be reviewing both YA and Adult books for this challenge.

1. Fracture by Megan Miranda

I discovered so many awesome debut authors in 2011, that I thought it'd be awesome to participate in the Sophomore Reading Challenge hosted by Chick Loves Lit! This is going to be hard for me I think... but I'm going to try and read and review 10 sophomore books this year. You can find out all the details and what books qualify here.

Here's a list of sophomore books I plan to read in 2012, I'll add as I go:

  1. A Million Suns (Across the Universe #1) by Beth Revis
  2. Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth
  3. Spellcaster (Spellbound #2) by Cara Lynn Schultz
  4. Perception (Clarity #2) by Kim Harrington
  5. Until I Die (Revenants #2) by Amy Plum
