Back in January when I was joining all of these reading challenges I couldn't for the life of me find one for Novels In Verse. I decided to go out on a limb and try hosting my very own reading challenge.

Now for a little Q & A: 

Favorite Young Adult novel in verse?

Favorite middle grade novel in verse?

Favorite cover?

What was your favorite verse novel you read in 2012? 


  1. That's a lot of books in verse. I read two this year. Chasing Brooklyn and Glimpse. Was Hurricane Dancers any good?

    1. Ooo, Chasing Brooklyn is one of my favorites!! Glimpse was a little too dark for my liking. Hurricane Dancers was alright but not as good as her other book The Firefly Letters, which was amazing! I hope you'll consider being a part of the challenge in 2013! ;)

  2. I loved KARMA and The One and Only Ivan.

    1. I really enjoyed Karma too! I haven't read The One and Only Ivan yet but I've heard great things and can't wait to finally read it!
