It’s now February 9th, so it’s time to officially kick off YALSA’s 2015 Hub Reading Challenge! We hope this challenge will encourage you to read/listen to more great books than you might have otherwise — and to discover something new in a genre or category you might not have tried.
Challenge objective Read/listen to 25 of the titles on our list of eligible titles [pdf] to finish the challenge. The list includes YA novels, audiobooks, graphic novels, and books for adults, so there’s plenty to choose from. Bonus objective: read/listen to all eligible titles to conquer the challenge! [Please note: at the time of this writing, we are still awaiting the 2015 Great Graphic Novels for Teens top ten list to round out the list of Hub Challenge eligible titles. The list will be updated with that info as soon as it’s available!]
Challenge rewards Beyond experiencing the best of the best that YA lit has to offer, everyone who finishes the challenge will be invited to submit a response to a book they read for the challenge. The response can be text, graphics, audio, video and will be published on The Hub. Furthermore, everyone who finishes the challenge will be entered into a random drawing for our grand prize: a YALSA tote bag full of 2014 and 2015 YA lit! (If the winner is a teacher or librarian or something similar, we’ll also include a few professional development titles.)
Challenge conquerors will receive an elite digital badge to show off how well-read they are. (And don’t forget major bragging rights and the undying awe and respect of everyone, everywhere.)
- The challenge begins at 12:01AM EST on February 9 and ends at 11:59PM EST on June 21.
- Eligible books are the YA titles that were named winners or honor titles for the Schneider Family Book Award and the Stonewall Book Award and those on YALSA’s 2015 Best of the Best list (2015 winners and honor books for the Alex Award, Award for Excellence in Nonfiction, Margaret A. Edwards Award, Michael L. Printz Award, Odyssey Award, and William C. Morris Award, as well as the 2015 Top Ten Amazing Audiobooks, Best Fiction, Great Graphic Novels, Popular Paperbacks, and Quick Picks.) Middle grade titles recognized by these lists and awards are not included in the list of eligible titles for this challenge.
- Format matters: a title that has been recognized for both the print version and the audiobook version can be both read and listened to and count as two books, but a book that has won multiple awards or appears on multiple lists in the same format only counts as one title. If a book was recognized as a print version, listening to the audiobook does not count.
- Books must be read/listened to (both begun and finished) within the challenge time period. If you’ve already read/listened to a title, you must re-read/listen to it for it to count. The only exception is for titles you read for the Morris/Nonfiction Reading Challenge; whether or not you finished that challenge, you may count that reading toward your 25 titles.
- Just about everyone who doesn’t work for ALA is eligible to participate. Non-ALA/YALSA members are eligible. Teens are eligible. Non-US residents/citizens are eligible. (More eligibility questions? Leave a comment or email us.)
- Once you finish the challenge, we’ll contact you with details about creating and publishing your response.
- The grand prize winner will be selected by 11:59pm EST on June 23. The winner will be notified via email.

If you’re going to be tracking what you read/listen to on your blog or on Goodreads, LibraryThing, YouTube or some other site, include a link to your blog/shelf/channel/profile in your comment.

I’m ready. Since we have all the Sharon Draper books here at my library, this first week will be reread week (been a couple of years since I read these). Finished the Morris Award books this weekend – really glad we can count those toward the challenge. There are 5 less titles than last year on the list.
I’m in! I’ll be keeping track on goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/659853-jenna-goodall?shelf=hub-challenge
& probably talking about it on twitter: @jenna_goodall
Question: Why isn’t ‘The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place’ (Odyssey Honor) on the list? The Nate book is, and it seems to me they are both aimed at grades 5-9.
It’s on the Amazing Audiobooks for Young Adults list, just not Top 10. So it seems to me that it should count as YA. But there’s always at least one title that causes disagreement. I guess this is the one for this year. I haven’t listened to the audio, but I’m reading the book now and really enjoying it.
I’m in! I will be tracking on my blog: https://booksandbassets.wordpress.com. I am challenging myself to read all the Alex Award winners this year and have already put some of them on hold at the library. I’ll pick and choose from the other winners.
I’m in! I plan to read at least one book from each list, all of Sharon Draper, and then we shall see where my interests carry me. I will track on my blog http://friendreginarenee.blogspot.com/ and goodreads goo.gl/CcZBWH
You can find me on Twitter cheering everyone on @FriendRsquared
I’m in! I will keep track of the books at
Starting with The Terrorist’s Son: A Story of Choice.
I’m in and have already started collecting titles. I’m off today because I worked on Saturday, and I’m looking forward to getting a good start on the Challenge. I’ll be tracking on my blog, linked in my profile, and on Goodreads: Hub-2015-Challenge.
I have a head start since I completed the Morris and Nonfiction Challenge. But I’m still going to try to read 25 other books for this challenge. I’ll do my usual mini-goal of reading at least one from every list. I’ll also probably not re-read any of the titles I’ve already read. I may actually skip listening to Five, Six, Seven, Nate! even though that means not doing the Odyssey Award at all. I was less than impressed with Better Nate Than Ever and don’t expect to care for the sequel. Then again, I have a 1-hour commute each way and go through audio books pretty quickly. We’ll see.
I’m excited to read! I’ll be tracking on Goodreads, and I’m lucky to have done the Nonfiction Challenge so the shelf already has a few items on it: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/93100-libby?shelf=yalsa-challenge.
I’m in! I conquered the challenge last year and the year before that, so I’m planning to do the same thing this year. :)
If anyone wants the updated list in a sort-able format, feel free to steal this chart: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3gmy5e6MaGlM2VCVEdXanBMVHM/view?usp=sharing
I doing it this year!!!
Just finished rereading Maus by Spiegelman. It’s a graphic novel so, of course, it was a one day read. I read it first about 5 years ago. I forgot how terrible the tale was but as a graphic novel, one of the best.
I’m in! This will be my second year. I was very excited to finish 25 right on time last year, so I’m hoping to do the same or better!
I’ll be attempting this again this year, though it looks like I already need to revamp the titles I was planning on reading!
I am in and ready to go! I will be tracking on goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/4684550-ariel-birdoff?shelf=2015-hub-challenge
Skipped the challenge last year, but looking forward to giving it a try this year! I’m excited because I already own quite a few of these titles and now I have a good excuse to move them to the top of the TBR stack….
I thought This Day in June by Gayle Pittman won the YA Stonewall award this year? Is it on the list and I just missed it? Or am I thinking of the wrong thing?
Never mind, I am thinking of the wrong thing, that is clearly a children’s book.
I’m ready to take on this challenge!
I’m in! Since we had a snow day I finished one already. Good luck everyone.
I’m in again! I did all ten of the Morris/Nonfiction books, but I’m going to try for 25 new ones like last year. :) I’ll be keeping track here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/13324287-anna-chappell?shelf=hub-challenge
Excited to participate again! Thanks for organizing it year after year.
I’m so excited to start. I’ve been holding back on reading for this day.
Here’s my GoodReads shelf where I’ll be tracking my progress: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/2072864-kim?shelf=hub-challenge-2015
I’m in and have maxed out my holds at the library, so I’m ready to go!
I’m in. Any chance of getting the list as a Excel file after the graphics are locked? Would like to be able to resort it…
Also, as Maus selection in Popular Paperbacks is a boxed set of 2 volumes, will that count as one or two titles?
Here’s a Word version, still sortable and probably able to import into Excel if that helps:
I’m in! I’m so glad I finished 5 books during the Morris/NF challenge because now I’m well on my way to finishing the challenge for the second year in a row!
I’m going to try to keep track on my blog, but since I get lazy and stop posting after about 5 books, my GoodReads shelf will be my main record of progress: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/3591728-jennie?shelf=2015-hub-challenge-unread. I’m also on the Twitter: @bobcatbrarian.
I’m starting with I’ll Give You the Sun which I’ve held off on in anticipation of the challenge.
Happy reading, everyone!
I’m in! I have a head start this year because of the Morris/Nonfiction challenge so I feel really good about my ability to complete it.
This is the 3rd year that I’ll be participating in the challenge. I was able to read all of the Morris books as well as three of the non-fiction titles (The Family Romanov, The Port Chicago 50 & Ida Tarbell). I’ll be keeping track of my books on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/1270547-samantha-tai?shelf=yalsa-hub-challenge-2015
I’m in! First time doing a reading challenge, or any sort of reading within a sort of community. Excited to try something new!
I’m in! I have a small stack ready and waiting.
Also, I love the format of the list this year, grouped by award. I often try to knock out a particular award, so this makes it so easy. Thanks!
I’ll post progress at milesofbooks.tumblr.com
I’m so in!
I’m in. I’ll be tracking on Goidreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/7440358-kate?shelf=yalsa-hub-challenge-2015
I cant wait to start. I’m definitely in!
I’m in and tracking on Goodreads:
I finished both the Morris and Nonfiction challenge lists this time, so that’s a good head start.
One question under the “format matters” clause: Amazing Audiobooks cited Ian Doescher’s William Shakespeare’s Star Wars Collection. Will it be acceptable to check off that one title by listening to the three separate recordings of A new hope, The Empire striketh back, and The Jedi doth return? I do my audiobook listening via downloadables, and to the best of my ability to tell there isn’t a downloadable version of the three packaged together.
Prithee, couldst thou clarify this most thorny conundrum?
I am in, and will be tracking on GoodReads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/14300039-lucie-ferguson
Looking forward to it!
YEAH! So excited to start this challenge and REALLY glad I got started with the Morris/Nonfiction challenge. I’m SO in! :D
Forgot to put a link to my shelf: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/19981819-magda?shelf=2015-yalsa-hub-reading-challenge
I’ll keep track on Goodreads with the tag “hubchallenge”.
I’m in again! I’ll be tracking on GoodReads here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/5677039?shelf=2015-hub-reading-challenge
Also, I really like how the challenge checklist has a “read?” column this year! Very nice!
I’m in! Will be keeping track on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/8759506?shelf=2015-hub-reading-challenge
Already completed a few thanks to the Nonfiction Challenge.
I’m in! I’ll be reviewing as I read on my library’s blog: http://www.ucplbookchallenge.blogspot.com/ Search Hub 2015 to see my reviews! I’ve already read the Morris finalists, so that’s five done.
Will the list be updated to include the Great Graphic Novels choices?
It will be, but here’s an updated version you can have now: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3gmy5e6MaGlLUN3cnZpZFNEa00/view?usp=sharing
I’m back – with a good story. I put All the Light We Cannot See on hold at the public library. There are 153 books available and I am #600 in line!!!!
I’m in, too! I was able to finish the challenge in 2013, but, with finishing grad school, working, and an internship, it just didn’t happen last year. I’ll be tracking on goodreads, as well: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/2739540-katie?shelf=2015-hub-reading-challenge
I’m in! I’m also sharing the master list with my TAB today.
I’ll keep track on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/59817-sarah?shelf=hub-challenge-2015

2015 YALSA Hub Challenge
I’m in!! This year I’m going to focus on posting what I read on more social media…
goodreadys, instagram, twitter, facebook!
I am in!
I’m in. This is my third year to participate. I have a massive pile of titles already and now just have to start working my way through them. My holds list was full, but so many already came that I have openings! As usual the audiobooks are the hardest ones for me. We just don’t seem to buy that many of the ones on the list. Graphic novels are a personal challenge for me as I am a verbal person and not a visual one, but every year I read at least three to six of them and most years find at least two of them to be very interesting.
I’m excited to join in again! I’ll be tracking on Goodreads and probably be chatting about about the books on Twitter at @cavecibum.
So excited for this! I didn’t know about this challenge last year, so I am looking forward to making it a tradition. I’ll be tracking my progress on my Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/38560685-ellie?shelf=2015-hub-challenge&utf8=%E2%9C%93
I’m going to try this…I’m looking forward to the titles that fell through the cracks last year. It’ll be difficult to tackle this and try to keep up on this year’s titles!
Here we go again. I look forward to this challenge every year. it gives me the opportunity to read outside my “comfort” zone. My zone is getting larger every year. I will keep track of my books on my blog “Books and Things” which can be found at gloriajc.tumblr.com.
Excited to read again! I am in and will be sharing my progress via Twitter. Follow me @ kellylynnin
I am in for my 4th year. YAY! Lots of great books to choose from! #simsburyct

I’m in, and excited to have all the Morris titles under my belt already. Hopefully I can convince some of my students to join in too!
I’m in! I’ll also be tracking at Goodreads. Will there be a Goodreads group this year? I really enjoyed reading others’ comments last year!

I love this challenge. It gets me reading from genres and formats that are not usually on my go to list, and then I get to knowledgeably chat with students and faculty about award winning books! It’s a great motivator!
I’ll try :)
I’ll be keeping track on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/5390136-beth?shelf=2015-hub-reading-challenge

I was a lurker last year, but this year I’m ready for the challenge. Started reading Tomboy during my lunch today! I have a school website, so I may create a blurb about the challenge and keep it updated there.
Thanks for the incentive to read even more!
I am READY for this challenge.
I was too intimidated last year, but this year I’m in! I’ll be keeping track on Goodreads:
Yay! I’m in for year 4 of this challenge! Not sure if I will finish this year, as I just started a new job and I am not actually working with teens any more, but I still love YA and will give it a shot!
I’ll be participating! I’ll try to keep track on Goodreads, too.
I am doing this and will keep track of it on my sad blog that I never update here: https://sciencefairlibrarian.wordpress.com/
Starting today with Bellweather Rhapsody. I’ll be keeping track on Goodreads.
Love the Hub Challenge :)

I’m excited to participate! I’ve got the 5 nonfiction books completed from the Morris/Nonfiction Challenge and I’ll start this one with Everything I Never Told You and and will continue with other Alex award winners. I’m having trouble finding many of the audio selections, any suggestions? I’ll keep track of my books on Twitter.
I will participate in the challange.
Woohoo! I’ll be keeping track of the books I read on GoodReads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/2461680-tiffany?shelf=hub-reading-challenge-2015

I’m in. Will be participating with a few brave souls at work, so we’ll be egging each other on!
I’m in. I did it on my own last year and want to share the experience this time.
I will keep track on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/1173951-julie?shelf=hub-2015
Hooray! Just in time to fill the void of Mock Newbery and Mock Caldecott ending. I loved discovering books and audio books last year, so I am in!
I’m in! I’ll comment on some of these titles in blog posts at http://www.ssjcpl.org.
I’ll be keeping track on my goodreads pages under Megan Park!
I’m in! Finished The Crossover today and have a stack ready. I’ll be keeping track on Goodreads under Justine Johnson.
Looks like the Great Graphic Novels Top 10 list is out now–true? If so, can we get an updated PDF of the reading list?
Looking forward to this!
I’m in! Will be reading with my reading buddy at school!
I think I forgot to leave a comment last week, but I did start Monday; I also will be keeping track on Goodreads!
Let the reading begin!!
I’m in! Trying to read all of them this year, but we’ll see.
I totally forgot to post last week! I’m in and have already finished two books for the challenge, but I’ll go talk about those on the check in post.
I’m in. Since I read the nonfiction short list for the earlier challenge, I’ve got 5 done – 20 to go. I’m keeping track at https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/1455445-lois?shelf=hub-challenge-2015.
I’ll give it a shot – I participated two years ago and finished, so I hope I’ll be able to again this year. I didn’t have a great record of having read the winners prior to the announcements, so I’ve got a lot to choose from. I’ll be keeping track on my blog http://www.librarianosnark.blogspot.com.
This is my first time accepting this challenge. I read about it last year and decided to go ahead and participate this year. Keeping track on Goodreads seems like a smart way to manage the reading.
I’m in! That Morris challenge head start definitely helps, and I always try to read all the Printz books anyways. Should be fun!
So excited and up for the challenge! I am one of the media specialists for Marshall Public Schools. Encouraging staff and students to join me in the challenge.
Fault in our Stars
Great lis so far! I’ve completed Fault in our stars and Skink–No Surrender the audiobook. Could not stop listening to Skink–No Surrender fantastic audiobook. Currently starting ACID and Juvie.
I’m in! Can’t wait to do this for a second year! Noticed that several of these titles I’ve already had the pleasure of reading several times, guess I’ll choose some I haven’t read yet and several more that are just so good you can’t stop reading them! So stoked!
Sorry. I’ll be posting my reading on goodreads:
On the YALSA 2015 Hub Reading Challenge, Gail Carriger’s book is Curtsies and Conspiracies not ‘Curtseys.’
I’m in and have a head start having completed the Morris Award Challenge.

Alright, I’m gonna do this! This will be my first year participating, so I’m excited. The only two books I’ve read on are listed as Amazing Audiobooks, so it’ll be an interesting experience, for sure…
Looking forward to particpating in this challenge for the first time. There are a lot of great books on the list that I want to read. You can follow my progress on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/854538-kathryne?shelf=yalsa-hub-challenge-2015 or Twitter @katfevre
Going for it!
I am so going to rock this list! I am very excited to do this challenge!
I failed last year and I am looking forward to giving it another try! I will be keeping track on Goodreads & Twitter.
Good luck to all!
I have started this challenge in the past and have never completed it. Will try again this year!
I am starting with Jackaby- several students have checked it out and brought it right back none of them have finished it yet, so I want to read it for myself.
I’m going to give it a shot again even though I totally tanked on the Morris/Non-Fiction challenge again this year.
I’ll be keeping track over at my Goodreads account: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/66673-jennifer?shelf=2015hubchallenge
I might also tweet about it occasionally @Bkwrm7
I’m in on the challenge. I’m excited to explore some new genres that I don’t normally read!
I will be participating! I will post my books on both my Goodreads page (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/5099486-lynndee) and on my blog (thelibrarylush.com). Love me some YA!
I am ready to start this challenge! It’s going to be awesome to explore all of these different genres.

I love the HUB challenge! I will be tracking my progress on Goodreads:
This teacher librarian is so down! Let the reading begin!
I’m so ready, even if i am starting late. this is the first time i have done this so i cant wait to see the turn out.
I know I’m super late to this, but I’m participating! I also am going to tell my TAB about the challenge too.
I can’t remember if I already said I was participating, so here’s a just in case I didn’t! I did all 10 books of the Morris/Nonfiction challenge, so that just leaves 15 to go!
I’m in, late to the party as usual. I’m done with all of the Morris and Nonfiction titles, though, so hopefully, I’m not that far behind.
I’ll be keeping track on my blog and on Goodreads.
