October Mini-Challenge: Teen Fiction Month

After Wesley Scroggins’ case of chronic  foot-in-mouth disease in Missouri last weekend and the Speak Loudly blogging campaign that followed, I discovered a lot of book blogs devoted to teenage/young adult books. Re-reading Speak and reading people’s reviews remind me of how much good quality teen fiction is out there and encouraged me to go out and read as much as I can. Working in bookselling I’ve found myself intrigued by a lot of the young adult books when they come into store, but haven’t got around to reading very much. I decided to rectify the matter and make from now until the end of October Teen Fiction month. My challenge to myself is to read as many books aimed at teenagers as possible, and to review each one. I made a start today by making a visit to the town library, where I checked out eight books. That ought to keep me going until pay day!
