2011 YA of the 80s and 90s Reading Challenge - FAILED

YA of the 80s and 90s

YA of the 80s and 90s Reading Challenge
hosted by The Book Vixen

  • Runs January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011 (books read prior to 1/1/11 do not count). You can join at anytime. You can sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • Read as many YA books that were originally published in the 80s and 90s as your heart desires. The only requirement is that the book(s) have to have been first published sometime between 1980 – 1999.
  • Books can be any format (bound, eBook, audio).
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are fine.
  • You can list your books in advance or list them as you read them. It is not required that you review the books you read for this challenge but feel free to do so.
  • Post this reading challenge on your blog so you can keep a list of the books you’ve read for this challenge. Please include a link back to this post so readers can join the challenge too.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate. You can keep tabs on books you’ve read for this challenge on Goodreads or LibraryThing if you’d like (maybe make a shelf for “YA of the 80s and 90s Reading Challenge”). If you are not on either of those sites then you can list the books you read for this challenge in the comments on my wrap-up post, which will be up at the end of 2011.

    My goal is to read twelve (12) YA from the 80s and 90s.

    Here is my list of books for this challenge:

    Zero. I didn’t read a single book for this challenge. And I hosted this challenge. *facepalm*

    1. Great challenge. I'm pretty sure I've read all of the Pike and Stine books when I was younger.

    2. Debbie - Some of the titles from Stine I've added to the list sound familiar. I'm sure I've read a few of them, and even if I did, I've forgotten what they're about. I thought I had read some Lois Duncan books when I was younger but don't recognize any on Goodreads. Or the ones I do recognize (I Know What You Did Last Summer, Killing Mr. Griffin) were published in the 70s, so they wouldn't count towards this challenge.

    3. OMG, I should totally participate. I have about 25 of R.L. Stine's books and some of Christopher Pike that I haven't read, but always wanted to read. I'll keep this in mind.

    4. I'm totally in! I will sign up tomorrow once I figure out some books I want to read.


      I also read babysitters club books back then too. Never read SVH so might have to look into those and some Blume too.

      Off to research authors of 80s and 90s. :)

    5. R.L Stine ahh swoon I love so many of his books :)

    6. This is an awesome idea :D
      I'm almost done my post for this now, I can't wait for it, it should be fun :D

      Thanks for hosting, and inviting me on Goodreads :)

    7. I'm so in for this challenge. I'll have to come back and post about it tomorrow. I've gotten into collecting originals so I have a stack of these books in my pile (all horror but that's when the good horror was good!) so this is right up my alley. :)

    8. LOVE it! You know the title of your post caught my eye.... anything 80's usually does!

    9. I own Scavenger Hunt still.....I think I'm going to have to sign up for this one. Great Idea!

    10. I own every Pike, Stine, Duncan, Smith, Cooney book from that era. I have boxes full. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    11. Awesome list!
      I raided my shelves last night and found 38 books that were published between 1980-1999 (I was quite shocked at the number, especially since I read the majority of them long after the came out). ^_^

    12. What a blast! I didn't read much in the 80s and later became a librarian. ;) Thanks for hosting.
