Challenge update

I've sort of let this slide a bit, and I do apologise for that. There are some awesome people doing this challenge, and I really want to keep it going.

I had some health issues that got in my way a bit: but hopefully I'm back into it now.

For myself, I want to read 12 Kiwi YA novels this year.

Here's my list so far:

Dreamhunter by Elizabeth Knox
Dreamquake by Elizabeth Knox
The Changeover by Margaret Mahy
Genesis by Bernard Beckett
The 10pm Question by Kate deGoldi
The Sea-wreck Stranger by Anna Mckenzie

I haven't reviewed all of them - I rather fell down on reviewing this year, too, but I can say that so far I've enjoyed all of them. The Dreamhunter duo is a favourite of mine, but the real standout so far is The 10pm Question. Here's a summary I found (my memory is a little hazy on the details): and if you read only one Kiwi YA novel this year - it should be that one.

How's everyone else doing? If you have a post, or a review, or just want to pop up and say 'hi' leave me a comment :-)

You're doing better than me. I've only read 3 Kiwi books total. :/

D: I'm surprised I've read six. That's half the challenge already. Usually I fail hard at challenges.

BUT 3 (if they're all YA) is the lowest level for finishing the challenge so you could look at it that way?
