Young Adult of the 80's and 90's Reading Challenge

So, I stumbled across an awesome 2011 Challenge hosted by The Book Vixen today that I have decided to enter. It is the Young Adult of the 80's and 90's Reading Challenge - doesn't that sound like a good time? I feel like we often get caught up in all the new releases and forget about the thousands of books that have already been published. So, I am excited for this challenge - I already have some books on my shelf that I have been meaning to read that would be perfect for this! I hope you all consider signing up too!
