Young Adult Romance Challenge

Becky is hosting a Young Adult Romance Challenge
July 1 - Feb 2009
The rules

*Read six YA romance novels between July 1, 2008 and February 28, 2009.

*Romance should be a strong element within the story. But it doesn't have to be the only element. Realistic fiction (contemporary). Historical. Fantasy. Science Fiction. Retold Fairy Tales. All genres are allowed.

*They can be part of a series, or stand-alones.

*They can be long or short. *Happy books are NOT a requirement

*Audio books are allowed.

*Up to three movies can be substituted for books. So you could watch 3 movies, read 3 books if you prefer.

I haven't read many books from this genre since I was a teen - you can see from my list I have been seriously missing out!! I looked at Barnes & Noble under Teen Fiction - Romance and Friendship and found all of these great ones!! Thanks Becky for opening me to another group of books that I think I will love!!
