2016 Contemporary Challenge Sign-Up

Hi everyone! I'm so excited to announce both the sign-ups for the 2016 YA Contemporary Challenge and that this year, Jillian from Jillian's Books will be joining me in hosting the 2016 YA Contemporary Challenge. We're looking forward to a great year in reading contemporaries and have even added some mini-challenges this year! :) Along with the monthly link-up posts, there'll be author interviews and two contemporary scavenger hunts featuring some amazing authors! (There was one hosted in 2014.) Here's more info about this year's challenge:

Rules & Challenge Details:
  • You can read any YA contemporary novel, and it doesn't necessarily have to be published in 2016. (The 2016 YA Scavenger Hunts will be exclusive to authors of YA contemporaries published in 2016, but for the challenge, you're welcome to read any contemporaries you'd like :)
  • Everyone who has either a Goodreads or some platform to review on (blog, Youtube, etc). is eligible to participate! 
  • For a book to count towards the challenge, you must read and review it between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2016.
  • Both the challenge and the monthly giveaways are international. 
  • You'll get one entry for each review posted to the link-up in the monthly prize pack drawings. If you link up one review, you'll get one entry, two reviews-two entries, and so on. 
  • The review link-up and giveaway will be posted on the 15th of each month- both here and on Jillian's Books.
Poppy: 1-5 Books
Carnation: 6-10 Books

This year, Jillian and I created 12 mini-challenges for the scavenger hunt. There'll be bonus entries in the giveaways for anyone who completes one or more of these challenges. Here they are:

1) Read a contemporary from an author you've never heard of
2) Read one that features mental illness
3) Read a contemporary book with only one (1) word as its title
4) Read one with watercolors on its cover
5) Read one that you borrowed from the library
6) Read a contemporary novel with more than 400 pages
7) Read a contemporary book with a cover that features your favorite color
 8) Read a contemporary by a 2016 debut author
 9) Read a contemporary that's been on your TBR for 1+ year
10) Read a contemporary that starts with the same letter of your first name 
11) Read a contemporary that's a standalone
12) Read a contemporary recommended to you by someone else (friend, family member, blogger, etc.) 

Why You Should Participate:
Contemporary YA has some incredible books and authors! If not just for that, there'll be awesome challenges and giveaways throughout the year.

The YA Contemporary Scavenger Hunt will be back at the end of January and Contemporary Challenge participants may just have an extra entry in that giveaway, too ;) 


For the following linky, please link the profile you'll be posting your reviews to (blog, Goodreads, etc.) We hope you join in and are excited for an amazing year in reading! :)
