2012 Sensational Seconds Reading Challenge

Yes, I signed up for yet another challenge!

2012 Sensational Seconds Reading Challenge. You can sign up for this challenge HERE.

The Books:

  • This challenge is specifically focused on YA and MG "seconds" being published between Jan 1 - Dec 31, 2012. This includes sequels (the second book in a series only) and companion novels!(If you want a "bonus" challenge that pairs well with this, be sure to check out Shanyn @ Chick Loves Lit's Sophomore Reading Challenge!)
  • I've started a Goodreads list HERE that can help you keep up with some of the upcoming sequels/companions (there are 95 books on the list so far!).  Be aware that this list is not necessarily comprehensive, although I've been trying my best to keep it updated.
    • This list is just the US sequels being released in 2012.  I'll openly admit that I don't keep up with foreign releases.  If you live in another country, feel free to post reviews for newly released sequels in your country!
  • The books must be read between January 1 and December 21, 2012 to count towards the challenge.  I know some people have been lucky enough to read some sequels prior to 2012, but those won't be counted towards this challenge.
The Challenge:

  • The goal of the SSC will be to read sequels/companion novels! *duh* There are four different levels that you can choose to participate at:
    • Level 1 (Beginner): 1-4 books
    • Level 2 (Intermediate): 5-8 books
    • Level 3 (Advanced): 8-12 books
    • Level 4 (Crazy): 13+ books
  • Anyone can join! You don't have to be a blogger specifically, but you do need to review the sequels that you read somewhere (such as Goodreads, LibraryThing, Shelfari, etc.) in English
  • There will occasionally be giveaways! (Still TBD...but they'll be for participants only)
  • You can join anytime! Just set your goal and get started!
