Event: HarperCollins Imprint Challenge

I plan to push some reading boundaries in 2012, and what better way to do that than with a reading challenge? Starry Sky Books is hosting a HarperCollins Imprint Challenge. Chelsea from Starry Sky Books has hosted this challenge earlier this year, and it was a huge success!

For those of you that do not know or did not take part in the previous challenge is, it’s a challenge to read as many books from the HarperCollins imprints that publish YA books. This includes HarperTeen, Greenwillow, Katherine Tegen Books, and Balzer + Bray.

Challenge Breakdown:

  • Open to bloggers, readers, beginner YA addicts, and novice YA pros.
  • Books must be started on or after January 1. So if you have begun reading a book in December, it doesn’t count!
  • Any book format is accept. This includes audio books and ebooks.
  • Book titles chosen can be crossovers with other challenges.
  • Sign-ups will stay open through January 7

Fun, huh? I’m going to choose Medium. 5-8 books would be a good amount to challenge myself. I’m going to have to look through my TBR list and pick some out. I’ll update this post later this week with my book choices.
Good luck!

  1. Glad to see you signed up! I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what you’ll decide to read. I haven’t decided yet which level I’ll do myself, but I might try for hard this time! Happy reading in January. 🙂
