2013 YA Contemporary Reading Challenge

Just like last year, Katie’s Book Blog will be hosting the 2013 Contemporary YA Reading Challenge! I was really upset that I couldn't find anyone hosting a contemp YA challenge so I'm really pleased Katie decided to host this again. Here’s what you need to know taken straight from the sign up page:

Level 1: 5+ books
Level 2: 10+ books
Level 3: 15+ books

You can read any contemporary YA novel that is published between January 1, 2013 and December 30, 2013 but you must read them in 2013! (All formats accepted: paperback, ARC, e-book)

Books included:
I have created a Goodreads group for the challenge.  Included in the group is a shelf where I have added and will continue to add contemporary YA books being published in 2013. Members of the group can also add books if they are missing. 

Goodreads group 

If you have a contemporary YA book coming out in 2013 I would love it if you would participate. I would love it if you would be interested in donating swag/books or being featured here on Katie’s Book Blog. If you are interested, email me at katieb206 at gmail dot com.

Anyone who has a blog or a Goodreads where they can post reviews is eligible to participate.

Why you should participate:
Contemporary YA is an awesome genre. Isn’t that enough of a reason?

If not, there will also be giveaways throughout the year as well as one grand prize giveaway at the end of the year. Does that motivate you? =)

How to sign up:
Create a list on your blog or Goodreads with your list of books. You can create a list of books that you want to read or start a blank list and add the books as you read them. Once you have created your list come back here and add it to the linky below! Make sure that you post it on the same blog/Goodreads that you are going to post your reviews on throughout the year.

Sign-ups end May 1, 2013.”

I’m going for Level 3, 15+ books, and I’ll add books to this list as I read them.

Will you be taking this challenge up?
