YA Reading Challenge 2009

I'm hopelessly addicted to my reading challenges (and my sidebar's already looking a little empty), so I figured I might as well cave and sign up for at least one reading challenge I know I'm going to do next year. I really enjoyed the 2008 version of the YA reading challenge, so I'm back again for more for next year.

Here's my planned list:

Sorcery and Cecilia: Or the Enchanted Flower Pot - Patricia Wrede & Caroline Stevermer
Squire - Tamora Pierce
Castle in the Air - Dianna Wynne Jones
Enna Burning - Shannon Hale
The Blue Girl - Charles de Lint
Green Boy - Susan Cooper
Slam- Nick Hornby
Inkspell - Cornelia Funke
The Crow - Allison Croggon
Bound - Donna Jo Napoli
The Tale of Beedle the Bard - JK Rowling
Stargirl - Jerri Spinelli

Fortunately, I can change the list at any time, so I'm not going to add in any alternates for the moment.

I recommend all of those! Well, I can't rec Beedle yet as I have not read it, but all the others are great!

I wonder if it'd be cheating to do this challenge since I jst got a mess of YA books for Christmas... :)

Nope. Not cheating. I'm using it as an excuse to shove a bunch of my Paperspine queue up higher :)
