AusYa Blogger Challenge

The AusYa Blogger Challenge was created by the lovely ladies that run the Goodreads Group: Australian YA Bloggers and Readers. The idea behind the challenge is to read more LoveOZYA literature  and read more diversely at the same time. 

Each month has four prompts to be completed, with one prompt a month a specific LoveOZYA pick. The other three don't have to be OzYA but bonus points to you if you can squeeze them in. 

I read a lot of YA, specifically for my in real life YA bookclub where we read three set picks a month. Combined with these prompts, I could potentially end up reading 7 different YA titles a month, which is pretty awesome. 

Prompts are only out until April, so I will be adding to this page as they are added to the Goodreads group. Additionally, I may change my mind on some of these prompts. The prompts left blank (for March and April) mean I haven't finalised my choices yet. Feel free to suggest any you think I might like, or let me know what you would read or are reading for the prompts below.
