Most Wanted (67)

What?


Why?

I've been a huge fan of ATLA since the beginning, and have been dying to know what happened to everyone after the series ended. While I wish it was another season of the show, I'll gladly take a graphic novel if it means I get to know what happened to some of my favorite characters of all time.

Doppelgängers (16)

Doppelgängers is back! I'm changing things up a bit with this feature. Book covers will still battle it out to the death, and you'll still get to vote for your favorites. The difference is, I'll be saving my thoughts on the covers until the voting is over.

So, here are this week's covers. I'll post my thoughts on them next week when I reveal the next set of Doppelgängers.

Dreaming Awake vs. Enchanted

What?
Shay's Story by Scott Westerfeld

Why?

Uglies wasn't my favorite book by Scott Westerfeld, and truthfully isn't even a favorite in general, but I still really want to read this. A graphic novel set in that world seems more interesting, to me.

Most Wanted (65)

What?

Prodigy by Marie Lu

Why?

That cover is awesome! But that's not why I want to read it. I really loved Legend, and can't wait to find out what happens next with Day and June! I just wish I didn't have to wait so long.

It's the Christmas edition of On My Shelf! I know this is a little late, but I wanted to do a vlog, got sick, lost my voice, tried vlogging once I got my voice back, and epically failed. So now I'm doing a regular post.

Challenge Your Reading

I had an idea this morning, and by afternoon it had turned into a blog.

I was thinking about reading challenges (again) and how I've been having trouble finding ones to sign up for. So I got to thinking, wouldn't it be handy if there was a place where all the reading challenges were listed? It took me about two seconds to decide that yes, yes it would be handy. I searched for such a place, and did not find one. So I made one.

Challenge Your Reading, the reading challenge directory.

I only have 7 challenges listed so far, which is nowhere near close to all of them. I need your help! If you are hosting a challenge, or just know of one, drop a link in the comments and I'll add it to the site. There are a lot of reading challenges out there, and like Pokémon, I gotta catch 'em all! So I can use all the help I can get.

Be sure to check out Challenge Your Reading over the next couple weeks as more challenges get added. =)

2012 Young Adult Reading Challenge

This challenge is hosted by Jamie at The Eclectic Bookshelf. I meant to do this challenge last year, but like many things, I just forgot. I actually didn't read a lot of YA books last year (good thing I wasn't doing this challenge, I would have failed), and I'm looking to change that this year. I'm going to go for the Jumbo Size Challenge, with 40 YA books. Wish me luck!

I don't know what I'll read yet, so I'll be adding books as I read them.

YA Historical Fiction Challenge 2012

I don't read a lot of historical fiction, but there are a few HF books that have been on my TBR pile for a while, and this challenge will be good motivation to finally read them. The YA Historical Fiction Challenge is hosted by Sab at YA Bliss. The rules are pretty simple. Read between 5 and 15 YA or mid-grade historical fiction books in 2012. And the best part? The books don't have to be released in 2012! (You'd be surprised how hard it is to find a challenge like this.)

I'm going to be going for Level 1, with 5 books. I'll be adding books to this post as I read them.
