2013 New Adult Reading Challenge:
You can sign up for this challenge here.
Here are the rules:
- The book must feature a protagonist who is past the average age for graduation from high school (18 in most places) and under 30. If they’re exactly 18, you can make the judgment call based on content. (If the majority of it is set in high school, it’s probably YA.)
- They don’t have to be contemporaries! Fantasy, dystopian and paranormal fans rejoice, your books count too. As long as the characters fall into the comparative age group on whatever planet or in whatever world, it works.
- You don’t have to have a blog to participate, but you must post your reviews somewhere accessible online (like Goodreads).
- Just Graduated: Read a minimum of 5 New Adult books
- Moving Out: Read a minimum of 10 New Adult books
- Living On Your Own: Read a minimum of 20 New Adult books
- Fully Independent: Read a minimum of 30 New Adult books
If you’re looking for inspiration right now, here are a few Goodreads Lists you can check out (I have nothing to do with any of these and you’ll want to double-check them before you read to make sure they qualify): New Adult/Post HS Books New Adult Literature New Adult Contemporary New Adult of 2012 (includes some good paranormal and fantasy) New Adult Dark & Gritty Speculative New Adult Fiction New Adult Fantasy Series’
