2012 Standalone Reading Challenge

I have now lost count of the number of challenges I've signed up to participate in during 2012. I know there were at least a dozen before this one. I'm reminded of the saying 'I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it' LOL. Anyway, the 2012 Standalone Reading Challenge is hosted by Icey Books and I Like These Books. I love this challenge because standalone books seem to be the minority these days...most books are part of a series or trilogy. Nothing wrong with that, but I do enjoy a good standalone book every once in awhile. Annnnd...when I looked at the GoodReads list and saw that Blue Sky Days was listed on it, I kinda did an embarrassing little happy dance I was glad you guys couldn't see! :-D

The challenge is to read 15 standalone YA books between December 27th, 2011 and December 31st, 2012. I'm sure my list will change, but these are some of the YA standalones I want to read in 2012:

1. Dark Companion by Marta Acosta
2. Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale
3. Above by Leah Bobet
4. The Story of Us by Deb Caletti
5. In Honor by Jessi Kirby
6. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
7. The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen
8. Flirting in Italian by Lauren Henderson
9. Ripper by Amy Carol Reeves
10. The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg
11. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E Smith
12. The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour
13. Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
14. Ditched: A Love Story by Robin Mellom
15. Fracture by Megan Miranda

  3. Love the list. Personally, I am afraid of series, especially new ones... as I am sure I will forget about the first one when the second/third finally come along! Thanks for adding to my TBR MONSTER!

  4. You're right. Most books these days are a part of a series. I don't know if any of the books on my TBR is a stand alone. This would be a REAL challenge for me. I might have to sign up for this one.
