If you have read my blog at all you should know that I love to listen to audio books. I am able to wear headphones and listen to whatever I wish all day long while I work and audio books usually help the day go by faster. Also, I will listen to just about everything and have books from all genres on my iPod.
I got 3 bonus credits on Audible today and while I was looking for new books to get I read in a review that someone joined the Young Adult Audiobook Challenge. I had to Google it and find out what this was all about because I love audiobooks and am always looking for new books to listen to.
The challenge is hosted by Jen at A Book and a Latte. The challenge is to listen to 12 Young Adult audiobooks and write 12 reviews before the end of 2012. And even though the challenge started in January and I’m 2 months behind, I shouldn’t have any problems getting in 12 YA books in a year. I just finished Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich in 2 or 3 days, so I should be just fine.
The books I got tonight are: If I Stay by Gayle Forman, Cinder by Marissa Meyer, and Graceling by Kristin Cashore. I already have Vampire Academy, 2 of the Hunger Games books, 3 or so of the House of Night books (I love the series, but the narrator changes have been so bad that I am struggling to get through the books!!), and a couple other random YA books on my iPod so I’ll be set for a while on YA titles. I also loaded up my wish list on Audible with some more YA titles for future credits.
I think I am going to start with If I Stay because that is the shortest of the 3 new books and I should be able to finish it in a couple days. I am also going to only use books that I’ve started during the challenge. I’ve listened to half of one of the House of Night books but haven’t finished it yet and I’ve also listened to a few hours of Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25. I may start the books over for them to count though. That will work, right?
I will be writing reviews of the books I listen to and posting them on Goodreads, Audible, and here on my blog. So look for them soon!
