YA of the 80s and 90s Reading Challenge
hosted by The Book Vixen
•Runs January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011 (books read prior to 1/1/11 do not count). You can join at anytime. You can sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
•Read as many YA books that were originally published in the 80s and 90s as your heart desires. The only requirement is that the book(s) have to have been first published sometime between 1980 – 1999.
•Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
•Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine.
•You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. It is not required that you review the books you read for this challenge but feel free to do so.
•Post this reading challenge on your blog so you can keep a list of the books you’ve read for this challenge. Please include a link back to The Book Vixen's original post so readers can join the challenge too.
•You do not have to be a book blogger to participate. You can keep tabs on books you’ve read for this challenge on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you’d like (maybe make a shelf for “YA of the 80s and 90s Reading Challenge”). If you are not on either of those sites then you can list the books you read for this challenge in the comments on The Book Vixen's wrap-up post, which will be up at the end of 2011.

I'm not sure if all of these are YA titles, but hopefully they are. And as far as those big series, like Wheel of Time and Discworld go, I didn't wanna put them all up there. I wanna make sure I like them first too. :)
I'm definitely excited for next year, so that I can start reading these bad babies ;)
