Kim (kadykayf) Welcome to YA Book Club's thirteenth Reading Challenge!

Rules

Duration: March 1 – May 31, 2014

We are a YA Book Club, so all books should be young adult (unless otherwise noted).

You have 3 months to read 10 YA books that satisfy following requirements:

1) Read a book that is a new release published in March, April or May of 2014. Goodreads offers lists of the most popular new releases by month; they might help you to make your choices - March, April and May. (If you have difficulties obtaining these new books, you can read a release from the same months 2013).

2) Read a book whose title starts with one of the letters of the word SPRING.

3) March 8 is Be Nasty Day. Read a book where the protagonist is not a nice person or one that features a villain or antihero. Ideas here: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1...
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1...
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/2...
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/2...
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/6...

4) March 15th is Learn about Butterflies Day. Read a book with a butterfly on the cover. Lots of ideas here: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/3... and here https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1...

5) For St. Patrick’s Day, read a book that features an Irish mythological creature: fairies, pixies, banshee, selkie, leprechaun, etc OR read a book set in Ireland.

6) The first week in April is National Library Week. Read any book you borrowed from the library. eBooks borrowed from the library count too!

7) April 26th is Hug an Australian Day. Read a book written by an Aussie or that takes place in Australia. Ideas: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/3...

https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1...
https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/3...

10) Read a book, short story or novella that is 100 pages or less (most YA writers put a free one out to promote their new book, so this shouldn't be too hard).
Ideas: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/2...

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

Beverly | 31 comments Can't wait to read Panic. Thought Impossible Knife of Memory was outstanding and important. Hadn't thought of Legend as a military book, but it certainly is. Thanks for sharing the observation.

Lucia | 27 comments So how was Panic everyone? Same as Delirium? Seemed very similar


message 48: by oliviasbooks (new)

oliviasbooks | 98 comments No, it's different. It's contemporary, realistic YA. A bit predictable.


message 49: by Lucia (new)

Lucia | 27 comments Hmmmm I don't like predictable. :P


message 50: by Beverly (new)

Beverly | 31 comments Lauren Oliver is a powerful writer whose prose punches the reader in the gut while creating empathy for the characters and building suspense. Panic does this in spades. The very realistic teens are flawed and sincere. They are rash and narcissistic, but loyal to a fault when it comes to looking out for the ones they love.
Panic by Lauren Oliver
