Reading Challenge by Epic Reads: The Age of YA


Finalmente ho trovato il tempo per scrivere questo post che avrei dovuto pubblicare tempo fa. Oggi Anncleire mi ha citata su Facebook e mi ha fatto tornare in mente che mi sono iscritta alla Reading Challenge The Age of YA: A Timeline of Historical Fiction, ideata dal blog Epic Reads (QUI), un'iniziativa davvero davvero interessante a cui ho deciso di partecipare, principalmente per divertirmi e, secondariamente, perché offre l'opportunità di leggere bellissimi romanzi che avevo in mente di leggere da un po' e di un genere che adoro! Partecipano oltre me a quest'iniziativa la già citata Anncleire di Please Another Book, Cee di Se solo sapessi dire e Chiara di Chiara Legge Troppo
E' una sfida, una sfida molto interessante. I libri sono davvero tanti, ben 140 titoli, e sicuramente non riuscirò a leggerli tutti, ma leggerne almeno la metà o poco più sarebbe per me un grande traguardo. Alcuni li ho già letti, altri li comincerò prestissimo, intanto eccovi tutti i titoli elencati cronologicamente. Aggiornerò puntualmente la lista, cancellando i titoli letti ed evidenziando quelli in lettura.
