*NOTE* I decided to make a page for the challenge, so the central hub for information will now be HERE. I am posting all updates and new information to the page listed in the menu bar at the top of the page :) So please sign up there.
Fantasy is my favorite genre of books. I feel like the genre that there is never enough of, and I feel often gets lost in the masses of dystopians and paranormals (which don’t get me wrong, I love both!). I thought it would be fun to have a YA Fantasy Reading Challenge for 2012 with the objective to be read 10 YA or MG fantasies, any type be it high, urban, epic, etc that will be released in 2012.
Every month I will have a post for participants to link their reviews and there will be monthly giveaways picked from those reviews. Reviews can be posted on a personal blog or Goodreads.
I will hopefully be featuring authors who have fantasy books coming out next year periodically over the year in “Fantasy Five” interviews and will also try to do a compilation at the beginning of each month of all the fantasy books coming out that month.
Make sure to check out the Goodread List for the challenge if you are looking for books to read! I’ll do my best to keep it up to date, but do keep in mind that anyone can add books to the list. I also made a Listmania List on Amazon here.
Basically the rules of the challenge are:
– Read 10 YA or MG fantasy that are released in 2012
– Post a review on a personal blog or Goodreads
– The challenge runs from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012
– Anyone can join at any point throughout the year
If you are an author, and have written a fantasy novel coming out in 2012 and I haven’t included it in my lists, fill out this formSi here and I will add it right away.
