I have been doing some thinking and I've come to the conclusion that I need to take a temporary break from book blogging. NOTE: Any tour stops that I've committed to will be honored. I have decided that I want to combine my love of books, blogging, knitting, movies digital photography and life in general into 1 blog so that I don't feel so overwhelmed. Right now I feel like my book blogging is a job, I already have one of those. My plan is to come back in the near future with a new blog and a new plan.

2011 Young Adult Reading Challenge
The Book Vixen for letting me use this AWESOME SAUCE button!
Last year I participated in the Young Adult Challenge that J. Kaye's book blog was hosting. But from what I can see J. Kaye isn't blogging anymore and I really wanted to do this challenge again. So here it is...with a wonky button to start off with...but it's here.
Here are the rules:
1. Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate. Create a post about the challenge and link your challenge post up in the linky below.
--Non-Bloggers: Post your list of books in the comment section of the wrap-up post.
2. There are four levels:
--The Mini YA Reading Challenge – Read 12 Young Adult novels.
--The "Fun Size" YA Reading Challenge – Read 20 Young Adult novels.
--The Jumbo Size YA Reading Challenge – Read 40 Young Adult novels.
--The Mega size YA Reading Challenge – Read 50+ Young Adult novels.
3. Audio, eBooks, paper, re-reads all count.
4. No need to list your books in advance. You may select books as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed.
5. The Challenge starts on January 1, 2011 and goes until December 31, 2011.

YAY!!! I almost hosted this one as well! Glad you hosted it! New follower and now signed up for the challenge! TY for hosting!
PS...I am hosting J. Kayes 100+ Challenge for the year!
I was wondering if this was going to turn up somewhere. Thanks for hosting it!
lol thank you for telling me about the updated button. Looks much better :P
Is it okay if the books are used in more then one challenge??
Because I have already entered 3. But think this one is a great challenge :)
This sounds fun - I have linked to my blog homepage - I will be listing my books in my sidebar and reviewing them as I finish them - I hope that is okay. I will try to link the titles to the review posts. Happy Holidays.
I'm sorry, I completely spaced and accidentally put in my homepage link- here's my link for my post: http://thelifeoflale.blogspot.com/2010/12/2011-young-adult-reading-challenge.html
Yay, I'll be back to Mr Linky as soon as I've done my post :)
I put my homepage link too. Sorry. I made a separate page for the contest though: http://manda-b.blogspot.com/p/questions-comments.html

Thanks - Beverly @ The Wormhole
Hi there! I'd be happy to donate free digital copies of my book Covert Youth Agency, The Case of Tangled Love to 2011 Young Adult Reading Challenge participants.
Just email me through my site: www.jasonancona.com (under "contact") and reference the 2011 YA Reading Challenge.
Also, book bloggers, please let me know if you'd like to review my latest YA novel: Debugging Tori Redding. Info about it on my site.
Since I'm late in joining and the Linky stuff doesn't work anymore, I hope it's ok I sign up in a comment.
Alley @ A Plethora of Challenges
Is it still possible to sign up for this challenge?
I have completed the "Fun Size" challenge!
Not sure where to post my reviews for the challenge so here is mine for The Big Crunch by Pete Hautman
http://liedermadchen.blogspot.com/2011/02/young-adult-reading-challenge-2011.html Here is my post! I will keep updating as I go. Great challenge! :)
I just came across this challenge and would love to join in. Here is my post on the challenge:
I really love the idea of this challenge, since what I mostly read are YA books with a select few from other genre's and whatnot in general fiction. So, I wouldn't have any problem with this, as it would go right along with another book reading challenge that I have going for this year. So, yays.
I found my way over here through Step at Short & Sweet, which is just sort of awesome because I've enjoyed reading her blog and being new it's nice to see the other blogs potential followers are following with things in common.
So, I'm totally now following you as well. And I really have enjoyed what I've seen of your blog so far. :)
Suz @ A Soul Unsung
I love the idea of this challenge and it's a totally easy one for me, since the majority of the books that I read are ya. lol. So, yay. Oh, and definitely a new follower. :)
Suz @ A Soul Unsung
I'm sorry maybe I'm missing it, but I didn't see the linky you were talking about so I'm just going to go ahead and post again with the link to my actual post for this challenge: A Soul Unsung's 2011 YA Challenge Post
Here we go. I have been reading YA books all year but only now am beginning to post my reviews. Yes I am a total slacker. Since I have named April "Spring Cleaning" month on West Virginia Red Reads, you should come by and check out all the pretty new reviews going up. My first one for this challenge is here.
I'd love to join in this challenge =)
Hmm, I can't seem to find the linky either! I guess I'll just be linking to my challenge page then.
I couldn't find the link either, unfortuantely, but here is the link. I forgot to post it when I started.
I just discovered this reading challenge, wrote and posted about it, and now can't find a Mister Linky here. Have you closed the challenge? Here's the link to my post:
I'm going to have to change my challenge I have completed the fun size already -- now I am going to up to Jumbo Size
I'm joining!! Here's my list: YA Reading Challenge
