My favorite books are YA contemporary, so this was a no-brainer for me. Some of the books were already on my radar, so I immediately signed up. Plus with a chance to win all of these exciting titles, how could I pass it up? I wasn't one of the winners, but who cares, I was just thrilled that a contest like that even existed!
My goal is to read at least 18 of the 21 titles released within the next year. I'm not going to stress over it if I don't. I just hope that I can find some of these books at my library. Up to this point, I've purchased all of the books I've read.
