You might have noticed the added features/gadgets along side the posts. The bookshelf is to show what books I plan to read this month. I know, I haven't read eight books in a month in how long? But that is the goal, nonetheless. (I've already read one, so I'm further ahead than you think!) By the way, Give Up the Ghost by Megan Crewe - great read, people!
Then there's the Contemps Challenge widget under the bookshelf. The challenge is, if I recall, to read at least 14 out of around 20 listed titles at the site before the end of August 2011, and do a review of them.
All the titles are contemporary young adult titles to be released within the one year span. Two of the titles, The Duff: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger, and Losing Faith by Denise Jaden, have already been released.
Are there any other new YA titles out this month that I should get my hands on?
