2013 YA/MG Fantasy Challenge


  • Books can be any YA or MG fantasy, they do not need to be specific to 2013. I will still be doing roundups  of releases each month just to keep news up on new releases.
  • Giveaways are no longer just for reviews – they will be for all challenge participants. Reviews will be worth the most entries and each giveaway will be run bimonthly, so there will be 6 prize packs available throughout the year.
  • Read 10 Books.

Now this is a challenge right up my alley. It seems I read more YA books all the time.
