Hi everyone! I just wanted to post a little update on the Alex Awards Challenge for participants and any late joiners. For those just now hearing about the challenge, the Alex Awards are awards given out each year by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) honoring books that are written for adults that have a special appeal to young adult audiences. As an eclectic blogger that loves both genres, I was really excited about the fact that this perfect crossover exists (thanks to Asheley for telling me about it in the first place).
My own progress in the challenge has been a bit slow -- I keep getting distracted by review books and library books. I've read two books so far, The Glass Castle and Girl in Translation, and really loved both of them, so I am excited to dive a bit deeper into my TBR list to complete my goal of reading 10 books by the end of this year.
If you are looking for books to read, visit the Alex Awards page to find lists of the winners (10 each year) and nominees (which are also eligible for the challenge).
If you've read Alex Award-winning or nominated books this year, you can link to them on the review page.
If you haven't joined the challenge and want to, please join on the intro page. We'd definitely love to have you!
Let me know if you have any further questions, and I will do my best to answer them. :)
