I'll try again some other time.
Anyway... challenge. List. All that good stuff.
I've read 10 or 11 of the books in here. Kind of sad, really. But honestly, when I was the right age I was dying to read something really challenging.... so I read a lot of Crichton and Clancy and such. I skipped a lot of preteen/teen books.
The challenge hosted by Booking Mama (which runs through the end of April... I've already missed half of it) is to read 6, but I'm feeling kind of OCD because there are 10 chapters! Must Read Something From Each Section.....
I need a life.
Chapter 1-- YA Heroines
My pick-- Harriet the Spy
Chapter 2-- Girls on the Verge
My pick-- The Long Secret
Chapter 3-- Danger Girls
My pick-- The Westing Game
Chapter 4-- Read 'Em and Weep
My pick-- Summer of My German Soldier
Chapter 5-- You Heard it Here First
My pick-- Don't Hurt Laurie
Chapter 6-- Girls Gone Wild (Wow, a section that I've read most of already!)
My pick-- The Endless Steppe (Done!)
Chapter 7-- She Comes by it Supernaturally
My pick-- A Gift of Magic
Chapter 8-- Him She Loves?
Chapter 9-- Old Fashioned Girls
My pick-- A Little Princess
Chapter 10-- Panty Lines (Or I Can't Believe They Let Us Read This)
My pick-- Actually I'm skipping this one. Call me a prude, but kids shouldn't be reading any of these.... and I don't really want to either. So nevermind.
Alright, 9 books. I can do that. I think... by April.... sure. No problem. :D
I'll link reviews here as I go.....
