#IReadYA: Challenges and Prizes!

Posted on: May 18, 2015


Calling all readers of young adult literature!

Celebrate young adult literature this week
with Scholastic’s #IReadYA.

All this week, starting today and ending on Friday, Scholastic will hold daily challenges in support of young adult literature. These daily challenges range from describing a YA book only using words that start with the same letter (e.g. Harry helps Hogwarts, hefting horcruxes), to sharing YA reaction videos/memes.

Each day this week, ten entrants who complete the daily challenge will be randomly selected to win a #IReadYA prize pack worth $145. The prize pack includes a pin, tote, tumblr, and even young adult books.

Challenges include:

  • Day 1 – #IReadYA Picture Share
  • Day 2 – #YAlliteration Challenge
  • Day 3 – WOW, Help share Fall 2015 & Spring 2016 Books
  • Day 4 – YA #TBT Instagram Challenge
  • Day 5 – #IReadYA Book Recommendations


A Grand Prize will also be awarded to one user who submits their #IReadYA Reaction video or animated GIF Tumblr post. The reaction can be to anything YA from a plot twist, to an adored character, to the final book in a trilogy. The Grand Prize is 10 books from your TBR (To Be Read) list, up to $250 in value!

Also, favorite young adult authors will be participating right alongside you with impromptu Twitter chats, Tumblr posts, and other social media.

Summer Reviews

Books can take connect us with strangers, take us to unique places, and introduce us to new ideas. They can also offer hope in a chaotic world. And so I must share what I read!

Each week, I’ll introduce you to religious books, Advanced Reader Copies, animal books, or diversity books. Some I’ll review as singles and others as part of round-ups. Just ahead, there will be reviews of:

  • Joni: The unforgettable story of a young woman’s struggle against quadriplegia & depression by Joni Eareckson
  • The True Story of the World’s Most Beloved Animal Sanctuary by Samantha Glen
  • Brothers in hope : the story of the Lost Boys of Sudan–refugees by Mary Williams
  • The Inner Life of Cats by Thomas McNamee
