2014 YA Contemporary Challenge Sign-Ups

Hi everyone! The contemporary genre is my all time favorite and for the last two years, I've loved participating in Katie's Book Blog's YA Contemporary Challenge. I'm so honored and excited to announce that I'll be co-hosting it this year with her. Here are the details about the challenge:

Level 1: 5+ books
Level 2: 10+ books
Level 3: 15+ books

You can read any contemporary YA novel that is published between January 1, 2014 and December 30, 2014 but you must read them in 2014! (All formats accepted: paperback, ARC, e-book)

Books included:
I have created a Goodreads group for the challenge. Included in the group is a shelf where I have added and will continue to add contemporary YA books being published in 2014. Members of the group can also add books if they are missing. 

Goodreads group

If you have a contemporary YA book coming out in 2014 I would love it if you would participate. I would love it if you would be interested in donating swag/books or being featured here on Katie’s Book Blog or over on The Book Belles. If you are interested, email Katie at katieb206 at gmail dot com or Montana at bookbelles at gmail dot com.

Anyone who has a blog or a Goodreads where they can post reviews is eligible to participate.

Why you should participate:
Contemporary YA is an awesome genre. Isn’t that enough of a reason?

If not, there will also be giveaways throughout the year as well as one grand prize giveaway at the end of the year. Does that motivate you? =)

How to sign up:
Create a list on your blog or Goodreads with your list of books. You can create a list of books that you want to read or start a blank list and add the books as you read them. 
Once you have created your list come back here and add it to the linky below! Make sure that you post it on the same blog/Goodreads that you are going to post your reviews on throughout the year.

Sign-ups end May 1, 2014.


  1. Hmmm, interesting. I love branching out and I don't read many contemporaries, but I'm already participating in 7 other challenges and I've turned some other good looking ones down too.. Ahh, no, I'll not join this year, but I'll remember this for next year :D Good luck and happy reading!

  2. Fun challenge! I'm pretty bad with official challenges, because I tend to forget...I do LOVE contemporary novels though, and I want to read more books as they come out. I find myself picking up things way late. haha


  3. This sounds really interesting! Well I'm not such a huge fan of contemorary books but I think I'll get to read some this year so why not join (I just need to prepare my post) :) I'm looking forward to this. Hopefully it'll be a lot of fun :) Thanks for hosting :)

    1. Yay! I'm excited for you to join. There's so many amazing contemporaries coming out this year :)

  4. Contemporary is what I read most of, so I am really excited about this challenge!!!

  5. Ahh, finally got my list done and my post up ;) So cool that you're cohosting this year Montana!! I thought about doing it last year but I never got around to it, sadly. Can't wait to join in on the fun this year though!

  6. Can't wait to join! I'll make my list this coming week(:
