This challenge is hosted by Reading Angel and Katie’s Book Blog.

There are different levels that you can choose to challenge yourself in:
Level 1: 5+ books
Level 2: 10+ books
Level 3: 15+ books

You can read any contemporary YA novel that is published between January 1, 2012and December 30, 2012 but you must read them in 2012! (All formats accepted: paperback, ARC, e-book)

Since I don’t read a lot of contemporary books, I’m choosing level one, requiring me to read 5+ books. I haven’t decided which ones yet.
