I finished the New Adult Challenge!


Hey, all!  Happy Monday :)  I have some fun cover reveals planned for this week, but to start off the week, I decided to post about The 2012 New Adult Challenge because...

I finished!  

Yep. I set my goal to read 20 New Adult books by December 2012 and I did it.  And my, was it a blast.  When I started writing The Crimson Hunt last September, I went into it thinking there weren't too many NA books out there.  That's why I wrote it; to write about something I hadn't really seen before.  Through that journey, I started a blog, joined twitter, and participated in the Challenge.   And because of that challenge, I became a Goodreads user and now have access to hundreds of New Adult reads :D

I wanted to present the books I read (all of which I highly recommend) and links to the reviews I did on some of the books throughout the year.  

Enjoy! And I hope you join the challenge yourself.  It's not too late to sign up!  Just click here.
