Kim (kadykayf) Welcome to the YA Book Club’s 50 States (or countries) of YA Challenge


Rules

Duration: Open (due to the number of books required, there is no end date for this challenge. It can be repeated more than once if desired)

Inspired by Epic Reads’ The United States of YA, you must read 50 books, one which occurs in each state in the USA (or in honor of our international members, 50 different countries if you’d prefer).

(update 1/20/12: Epic Reads now has maps for countries here: http://www.epicreads.com/blog/categor...)

Remember: we are a YA Book Club, so all books should be young adult.

Everything should be done on this thread - your questions, your plans, your progress.

Happy reading!

Sorry, the link to Epic Reads is fixed so that it actually works (http://www.epicreads.com/blog/the-uni...), but you don't have to use the ones they used. It's just to give you an idea.

Just pick 50. It's completely flexible.

The challenge is open ended. It ends when you finish all 50 (though you could choose to do another list after you finish the first 50). I did put an end date in the "challenge" because you have to put a date, but it's really far into the future, so it essentially has no date.

Mary (knoxdiver) This google doc is a list of YA novels by state. And the website bookssetin.com has a lot of books that aren't on that list (but you may have to comb through it more carefully since the genre isn't on all books). You can also find novels by country if you're doing the second challenge.

I read enough that it's not a problem to either reread or find new ones and there are approximately 50 billion ya novels set in NY. If you find a Vermont other than The Jip, I'm all ears, though!

message 41: by Shelley (last edited Apr 27, 2014 09:25PM) (new)

Shelley Here's my list. I think this is a great idea (YAY! No time limit!), but I do have a few questions...
1. What about made-up countries/worlds? Do they count?
2. What if a book is set in more than a few states? Would we just pick a place they've been to and put it down?
3. Can it be a mixture of countries and states?

Thanks in advance :)
