Sophomore Challenge 2012

Shanyn at Chick Loves Lit is hosting a new challenge this year: The Sophomore Challenge. Think of it as kind of an extension of the Debut Author Challenge. Remember all those debuts you loved from last year? All those first-in-a-series books and authors you fell in love with have another chance to shine this year through this challenge.

I kind of have two to-read lists for this challenge one is a list of books I for sure want to read and the other is a list of sequels which belong to 2011 debuts I desperately want to read but haven't gotten to yet. So kind of a to-read and a hope-to-(want)-to-read. There are currently 60 books on the goodreads list which you can find here: Sophomore Book List. The minimum goal is 10 books, but with that many (and more being added) I'm sure you can find plenty for a decent list! I definitely found a good amount of sophomores:

To Read:
1. Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth
2. Hallowed (Unearthly #2) by Cynthia Hand
3. Fever (The Chemical Garden Trilogy #2) by Lauren DeSetefano
4. Truth (XVI #2) by Julia Karr
5. The Fine Art of Truth or Dare by Melissa Jensen
6. Envy (Fury Trilogy #2) by Elizabeth Miles
7. Revived by Cat Patrick
8. Black is the Color by Alexandra Bracken
9. Seven Clues to Winning You by Kristin Walker
10. The Right and Real by Joelle Anthony

(more) Tentative To Read:
1. A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2) by Beth Revis
2. Mara Dyer #2 by Michelle Hodkin
3. Perception (Clarity #2) by Kim Harrington
4. A Fractured Light (A Beautiful Dark #2) by Jocelyn Davies
5. Girl of Nightmares (Anna #2) by Kendare Blake
6. Timepiece (Hourglass #2) by Myra McCentire
7. Dearly, Beloved (Gone with the Respiration #2) by Lia Habel
8. The Lies That Bind (The Liar Society #2) by Lisa Roecker
9. Ashen Winter (Ashfall #2) by Mike Mullin
10. Bad Hair Day (Kate Grable #2) by Carrie Harris

P.S. Notice all those sequels in there? Does anyone know about any series challenges? Because I have about a million other books in a series planned to read, but they aren't sophomores and I was hoping they'd count towards something.

  1. i was thinking about doing this one too. i don't know about a series challenge yet, but i'll keep my eyes open for one, because if i find one i'll probably want in on it too. :)


I adore all the comments you write. They totally make my day :]
