The Books


The Young Adult books chosen for this challenge fall into 4 main categories.

  • 10 books were selected from Time’s list of 100 Best Young Adult Books of All Time.

The remaining 12 YA books I’ll read in the coming year will be new releases and/or recommendations! Find the full list on Goodreads.

This is partially cause it seems fun, but mostly because ranking every book individually sounds like way too much pressure, and this challenge is already intimidating enough.


Don’t miss out, bookworms!
