Accepting the Comtemps Challenge

Thursday, August 19, 2010
Celebrate realistic YA with The Contemps!

There is a new challenge in the blogosphere, and I for one am more than a little excited about it. 

The Comtemps Challenge is hosted by a group of YA authors with contemporary novels releasing over the course of the next year. Their website states, "We are passionate about realistic fiction because these are the books that remind us we're not alone in this real world. Our mission is simple - to spotlight contemporary fiction for young adults through blog posts, author events, and (over)sharing from our teen years" 

By accepting the challenge I am promising to read 18 to 21 upcoming contemporary novel starting now and ending August 15, 2011.

Here are the books:
  1. Losing Faith by Denise Jaden
  2. The DUFF by Kody Keplinger
  3. Girl Stolen by April Henry 9/5
  4. Freefall by Mindi Scott
  5. The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
  6. Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler
  7. Fall For Anything by Courtney Summers 2/5
  8. Trapped by Michael Northrop
  9. Rival by Sarah Bennet Wealer
  10. Sean Griswold's Head by Lindsey Leavitt
  11. Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
  12. Family by Micol Ostow
  13. Back When You Were Easier to Love by Emily Wing Smith
  14. Pearl by Jo Knowles
  15. Saving June by Hannah Harrington
  16. The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder
  17. Small Town Sinners by Melissa Walker
  18. Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott
  19. The third book in the Carter series by Brent Crawford
  20. Sharks & Boys by Kristen Tracy
  21. Want to Go Private? by Sarah Darer Littman
