On My Shelf (36)

On My Shelf highlights books I've acquired and read in the past week, as well as a little about what I'm writing, and other blog worthy news. I think it's pretty obvious where I got my inspiration for the feature from, but I will follow blog etiquette and link to Kristi (In My Mailbox @ The Story Siren), Sheila (It's Monday, What Are You Reading? @ Book Journey), and Kate (The Shelf Report @ The Neverending Shelf) anyway. ;)

On My Shelf (34) Christmas Edition!

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.
