Standalone Reading Challenge – Month Two

Welcome back to the second month of the first annual Standalone Reading Challenge!
If you’re not familiar with the challenge I am co-hosting with Britta from I Like These Books, read the full introductory post here. Once you sign up, be sure to pick up one of ten buttons here.

The 2012 Standalone Reading Challenge is basically what its name stands for: during the year 2012 you must challenge yourself to read Standalone novels. 15 to be exact. And they must all be a part of the YA genre.

Our January prize pack was pretty awesome, and the lucky winner of that pack will be announced soon. Thanks to all who posted their reviews, I had a fun time reading as many as I could. Hopefully we’ll see even more links on the February list. Now the part that everyone is waiting for (pause for dramatic effect), the February prize pack!

(1) Hardcover of The Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
(1) Hardcover of DJ Rising by Love Maia
(1) Hardcover of Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler and Maira Kalman
(1) Hardcover of Everything You Need to Survive the Apocalypse by Lucas Klauss
(1) ARC of The Boy on Cinnamon Street by Phoebe Stone

But wait, there’s more! Throughout the year, Britta and I will be having a Standalone Spotlight, where we will feature a book a month. And of course, there will be chances to win ;)

So what are you waiting for? Read, Review, and Link up! Simply the book title is fine, but please post with the direct link to your review. And if you still haven’t signed up, do so HERE.
