I missed the first go round of the Contemps Challenge when it started up last year but I’m super excited to see that there is going to be a second round!  I’ve been reading more contemporary lately and since I want to continue that trend I’m definitely going to take this one on.

Sign.me.up!

So here’s how it works, between January and September 2011 I need to read and review 18 of 20 of the following titles:

Losing Faith by Denise Jaden
The Duff by Kody Keplinger
Girl, Stolen by April Henry
Freefall by Mindi Scott
The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney
Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler
Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers
Trapped by Michael Northrop
Rival by Sarah Bennett Wealer
Sean Griswold’s Head by Lindsey Leavitt
Like Mandarin by Kirsten Hubbard
Family by Micol Ostow
Back When You Were Easier to Love by Emily Wing Smith
Saving June by Hannah Harrington
Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott
The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder
Pearl by Jo Knowles
Small Town Sinners by Mellisa Walker
Sharks and Boys by Kristen Tracy
Want to Go Private? by Sarah Darer Littman

The good news about this challenge is that books read/reviewed in 2010 count as well.  That, my friends, puts me ahead of the game since the titles I’ve put in bold are already under my belt. I’ll be updating this post with my progress so check back now and again to see how I’m doing!

This challenge also has a super cool prize scenario going on too!  Check out Just Your Typical Book Blog for more information on how to enter if you’re interested.  I’m not likely to throw my hat in the ring for the prizes but I do like the idea of being even more motivated to read these awesome authors!
