Reading Challenge 2010: Read YA Through the Decades

The Youth Services Corner is hosting a YA Through the Decades Reading Challenge. Though I'm not a teen librarian myself, I love reading teen/YA books. I thought this would be a fun challenge to see if writing for teens has changed over the decades, and if so, how.

I'll be reading a book from each of the following decades:
  • 1930s or before
  • 1940s
  • 1950s
  • 1960s
  • 1970s
  • 1980s
  • 1990s
  • 2000s
And just for fun, I'll throw in another book published in 2010 - this decade. I haven't decided yet what I'll be reading for any given decade. Feel free to make suggestions!

Thanks Whitney! I read a lot of YA, so taking a sampling of every decade sounds like a lot of fun - I'm looking forward to getting started!
