It’s time to kickoff the 2016 Hub reading challenge! This challenge is intended to encourage librarians, library workers, and YA lit enthusiasts to dive into the award winner and honor books and YALSA selected lists with the hope of providing excellent readers’ advisory and even discovering a new favorite title or exploring a genre outside of your comfort zone.
Eligible books are the YA titles that were named winners or honor titles the following award and selected lists:
- Alex Award
- Award for Excellence in Nonfiction
- Margaret A. Edwards Award
- Michael L. Printz Award
- Odyssey Award
- William C. Morris Award
- 2016 Top Ten Amazing Audiobooks
- Best Fiction
- Great Graphic Novels
- Popular Paperbacks
- Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers
- Schneider Family Book Award
- Stonewall Book Award
This year, based on feedback, we’ve expanded the eligible list of titles to include all YA literature recognized by any ALA division, including:
- 2016 Top Ten of The Rainbow List
- The Amelia Bloomer Project 2016 Top Ten List
- Pura Belpré
- Coretta Scott King Awards
The titles are compiled into a this list [pdf].
How to Participate
- Declare your intentions in a comments on this post.
- Read 25 of the selected titles to complete the challenge, or the entire list to conquer it.
- 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. If you’re not tracking your reading online, keep a list some other way.
- Make it a social experience! Share your challenge progress and get to know other participants by using the hashtag #hubchallenge on Twitter and Instagram.
- Every Sunday, we’ll publish a check-in post. Leave a comment to talk about what you’re reading for the challenge. If you’ve reviewed those titles somewhere online, include links to those reviews! Otherwise, let us know what you thought of the books in the comments.
- There will be an finisher form embedded in each check-in post, so once you’re done with the challenge, fill out the form with your name and contact information. This is how you’ll receive your Finisher’s Badge, how you’ll be contacted about your reader’s response, and how you’ll be entered into the drawing for our grand prize. Please fill out the form only once.
- If you’ve conquered the challenge, let us know in the comments and we’ll send you your Conqueror’s Badge.
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 2015 and 2016 YA lit! (If the winner is a teacher or librarian or something similar, we’ll also include a few professional development titles.)
- 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.
- Books must be read/listened to (both begun and finished) since the award winners and selected lists have been released and 11:59pm EST on June 23. 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 have any questions or problems, let us know in the comments or via email. Happy reading!

I’m in! I am excited to see the Amelia Bloomer YA books included this year. I will be blogging about the challenge at https://booksandbassets.wordpress.com
It seems too early, but I’m always excited about this challenge. It encourages me to read books that I might never read on my own and introduces me to titles that I may not know already. Happy Reading!
I’m going to try again this year. I did the nonfiction challenge, so only 20 to go!
I’m in again this year! Can’t wait to start!
Ready to roll! Count me in!
So in for my 5th year! I’ve finished 6 so far. Most recently More Happy Than Not – amazing story!
Ooh, I’m in! I just started blogging too so I’ll be keeping track here: http://carolynedineen.weebly.com/blog
I am doing this! I will be talking about it on my twitter: https://twitter.com/Grammar_M and writing reviews on my Goodreads account: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/3535924-mallory
I’m in! I will be reviewing the books I read at http://mrsthomas715.blogspot.com
Actually just posted the review for Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare @ http://mrsthomas715.blogspot.com/2016/01/the-iron-trial.html
I’m so excited! I’m starting off having read more of these than I had last year (15), so I’m looking forward to trying some of the titles I’m less familiar with. I’ll be posting my reviews on Goodreads here: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/38560685-ellie
I just noticed that “Silence of Six” isn’t on the list of Top Ten Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers. Is this an accidental omission? My TAB participated in the multimedia challenge when the book was first released, but I haven’t gotten a chance to read it yet :)
Yes, we’ll get that corrected – thanks!
I am excited!!
I am going for the challenge.
I’m in, and excited to be joining my first challenge.
Well here goes! I get to experiment with WordPress, read new books, and start a blogging practice. Count me in! :)
Just getting started with the 2016 Hub Challenge. First up Challenger Deep off the YA Top Ten.
Follow my progress at @NewfieldHSLIB and Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/newfieldhslibrary
Very excited! I finished the Morris challenge and read one of the non-fiction finalists, so that’s 6 down already. Keeping track here: https://www.goodreads.com/ChesterCopperpot
Sounds like fun! Glad to have more of an idea of what to read ^_^
I’ll be tracking on my Goodreads ^_^: https://www.goodreads.com/SimplyStrange
I’m in. I finished the Morris/Nonfiction challenge, and I’ve got all the Alex winners and Amazing Audiobook winners on hold, so I have a stack to get me started. I will be attempting to conquer the challenge again this year.
Here’s an Excel file of all the titles, so you can sort by author or title or award, whatever you’d like. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3gmy5e6MaGlX3VFNzk4V2JSSFU/view?usp=sharing It looks like there are 95 individual titles this year, which is about a dozen more than in previous years. I’ve got my work cut out for me!
I can’t wait to start. When exactly is the start date? It is usually sometime in early Feb. (except for the Morris and non-fiction which we could count if read before Jan. 11).
The “official” start date is now! Anything you’ve read since the YMAs and selected lists for awards counts. The date is usually in February because Midwinter is usually in late January, instead of the beginning.
I’m in! I’ll be tracking on my goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/3591728?shelf=2016-hub-challenge-read as well as hopefully posting to my blog (which I say every year and stop doing after 3 titles). I do have two questions:
Are we only limited to the David Levithan books listed?
Are the nominated volumes in the graphic novel series counted separately this go round? In the past they have been but I just want to make sure that still applies.
The Levithan books listed are the included ones because they are the ones the committee singled out http://www.ala.org/yalsa/edwards-award
Graphic novel volumes can be counted separately.
Excited to try this challenge!
I’ve been waiting for this for a while! This will be my third attempt – I have yet to finish the challenge but I always read so many great books. I’m working on my list now! I’ll be updating on goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/3545597-allison?page=5&shelf=to-read
Excited to start the 2016 edition of the Hub Challenge! I have a bit of a head start as I completed the nonfiction and Morris challenges. I’ll be tracking on myGoodreads account.
First time trying the challenge . . . As a feminist blogger, I’m VERY excited to see the Amelia Bloomer books included. Blogging at https://halfwaytoamidlifecrisis.wordpress.com/
Excited to be a first-time participant. ALA/YALSA member working in Turkey. Will be reviewing at https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/4701777-heidi and on my blog https://moxiemeanderings.wordpress.com/
For once my timing is perfect. I just read The boy in the black suit today. I enjoyed it immensely. Every year I hope to read more than I did the previous year. I can easily handle the 25 required.
I’m totally excited about trying this challenge again. Last year I was completely unsuccessful. I only read 13, but the two years before I finished at least 25 books.
I’m in! I will be tracking it on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/9454003?shelf=read
I’m going to give it a try!
I’m in! For the first time I’m going to attempt to conquer the challenge, hope I can! I’ll track here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/13324287?shelf=hub-challenge
I also just created a record on Goodreads for the ‘African American Women’ book, so they all can be found there now!
I’m looking forward to joining the challenge from Shanghai…I will be keeping track via my goodreads.
I’m in! I (surprisingly) finished the 5 for Alex Awards. I’m excited Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda won, but I think The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly was just as awesome. Very powerful. I’ll be keeping track here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/38839451-caitlin?shelf=hub-challenge-2016.
First time participant, looking forward to some great reading. Only hope that I can find that all the titles want to read are available in New Zealand.
I’m in. Great challenge! Thanks.
Here is my Goodreads shelf for the challenge: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/35769067-bick-mcswiney?shelf=yalsa-2016-challenge
Love the Hub Challenge! I will be tracking books read here https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/1060755-amy-wheatley?shelf=2016-hub-challenge and tweeting @MHHSELibrary
I remembered to do the Morris/Nonfiction Challenge this year, so I’ve already read all the nonfiction nominees, but only made it through 3 of the 5 Morris titles. I still have Weight of Feathers & Conviction to go there. I saw some of the Alex titles at my Public Library & thought, no, must wait for Hub Challenge… So excited to get started!
I’m in! I’m going to track my reading on Goodreads at https://www.goodreads.com/callunavul, and hopefully I’ll be able to keep up with the posts for my library’s teen blog!
Yay! I swear this year when I say I’m in, I’m actually in.
Yay! I’m going to do it this year! I have a plan. I’m going to be keeping up with my reading for this challenge on Goodreads and Twitter. I’ll be posting any reviews or thoughts on my blog.
I’m in! I finished 4 of the Morris finalists for that challenge, so this is the first year that I have a head start. :)
I am jumping in for my first Hub challenge. I will be tracking my progress on this blog post: http://alibrarianslibrary.com/the-hub-challenge-2016/ and also through this Goodreads shelf: a href=”https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/6324268-jennifer?shelf=challenge-hub-2016″>Challenge Hub 2016 Shelf
I think I’m up for the challenge. I completed the Morris Challenge last month so I already have five books down. I will be keeping track of my reading on my blog http://snmelfi.blogspot.com/ Gotta go reserve some books at my library now. Happy Reading!
This is my second year for the challenge. Good luck everyone happy reading. Here is my reading list: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/7069543-scott-birge?shelf=2016-yalsa-hub-challenge
This challenge looks like fun!! I’ll be tracking my reading by adding a shelf on goodreads. I’ll also be posting reviews since that was part of my new years resolution this year. :) https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/4559858?shelf=2016-the-hub-challenge

I’m going to take part in the challenge this year. I will be keeping track of my books on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/9592106-grace?shelf=hub-challenge
I would love to participate in this challenge. I will keep track of my books on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/4641482?shelf=hub-challenge
I’ll be doing this again! I’m still working my way through the Morris Award finalists and then we’ll see where I go from there!
Count me in! This is my first time attempting the challenge. I’ll be tracking my progress on goodreads. I’ve already read a few of the titles, but I’ll be reading them again in accordance with the challenge rules. Here’s a link to my bookshelf: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/47410771-megan?shelf=yalsa-s-the-hub-2016-reading-challe
I’m trying again this year! I finished the Morris list so I’m off to a good start. I’ll be tracking here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/25732021-abbey?shelf=hub-challenge-2016
I’m in! I’ve already read 1 book for the nonfiction challenge (First Flight Around the World). I’m hoping to read at least one book from each category. I’ll keep track of my reading on twitter.
I have been anxiously waiting for this challenge to start!! I got a late start last year. I will be keeping track of my progress on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/ohmygoose
Yes, I’ll be participating again this year. There are so many great titles to choose from! I couldn’t quite finish 25 titles last year, so I’m excited to complete the challenge for 2016.
I’m in. I believe this is year 4 (5?) for me. Good luck everyone!
Wow, it’s great to have veterans come back year after year! Good luck to you, too!
The 2015 challenge had the specification of “If a book was recognized as a print version, listening to the audiobook does not count.” Is that true again for this year?
Good catch! We made a few changes this year. In addition to adding extra lists, we also dropped that. Even if it’s a print book recognized, reading audio counts (but for audio awards, we encourage the audio version). The thought was that the point of the challenge is to familiarize yourself with great YA literature, and many people have more time or prefer audio, and that it should still “count” as reading. Ultimately, this challenge is what you make it.
Love that change!
Yea! I’m so happy that audiobooks count this year.
This is a great change for me. Thanks for counting the audiobooks too. It makes sense!
Hooray – I’ve been eagerly awaiting this post since the winner’s were announced! I’ll be tracking on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/5677039?shelf=2016-hub-reading-challenge.
Great! Any reading you’ve done since announcements counts.
Okay! I’m in!
I will do this challenge again. I can’t wait to read more YA!
Woohoo! Can’t wait to do a lot of great reading!
I’m in! I’ve already finished the nonfiction and morris titles as part of that challenge.
So it begins! Can’t wait to begin
I am in! This will be my first time.
I am going to use my Goodreads account which hasn’t been used to its full capacity – it will be a learning experience for me.
Hi, I am excited to start the challenge!!!
Woohoo! I’m excited!
I am in! I will be publishing all my reviews on Goodreads as 2016 The Hub
This will be my first year doing the challenge! It will be a challenge!
Looking forward to my first crack at the Hub Reading Challenge! Hopefully this will push me to read more widely .
Yay! Reading widely is indeed the goal/benefit.
Tracking here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/7459806-jessica?shelf=2016-yalsa-hub-challenge
Hooray! I’m in! My Goodreads shelf is here. This is awesome, as I haven’t read very many books that were published last year.
I sat this one out last year, but I’m excited to do it this year! I’m tracking here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/1228669-elizabeth?shelf=2016hubchallenge
Also, since my Twitter is never used to its full capacity, I’m challenging myself to tweet with the hashtag for every book! I’m @divinelibrarian over there. :)
I’m so excited about this! I’ll be posting my reviews on Goodreads on this shelf: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/1372331-elisabeth?shelf=2016-yalsa-hub-challenge
If a book is nominated, can you listen to it or does it have to be read unless it is An Amazing Audio? I have an audiobook of Girl at War and want to know if I listen to it will it count as being read? Thanks!
Hi BJ, to make the challenge more flexible and accessible, listening to a book that was honored in print “counts” this year. We’re recognizing that because of time and preferences, many people do most of their reading as listening, and the point of the challenge is to become familiar with excellent YA literature. The challenge is for your benefit, so if it works better for you to listen to a title rather than read print, go for it!
Thanks, Molly! I have participated for 2 years now and since I read many current YA titles before the challenge- I made myself read more graphic novels, nonfiction, and listen to audiobooks so I did not have to re-read books- and I absolutely loved branching out with the new titles, thanks!
I’m in. https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/6697918-amanda?shelf=2016-yalsa-hub-challenge
I’m going to give it a shot! This will be my first time in the challenge so this should be exciting! How long does the challenge last? Is there an end date or does it just last through the end of the year?
The Challenge runs until ALA Annual, so you have until almost the end of June.
Okay, here we go again. Looking forward to a lot of great reads!
Sounds like fun! I’m in. I’ll be tracking with goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/7313524-stephany?shelf=yalsa-2016-challenge
Count me in!
I’m in I’ll keep track on Goodreads. https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/7903223-connie-scharre?shelf=hub-challenge-2016.
Always a pleasure! Excited to dive in. :)
First timer!! It sounds fantastic! I hope to get our students excited about new books!
Commenting to follow blog :)
I’m in! Looking forward to the Bloomer and Alex books in particular. :-)
Yes! I look forward to this every year. Started The War That Saved My Life this morning! I’ll be keeping track on my HUB Challenge shelf in Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/2461680-tiffany?shelf=hub-reading-challenge-2016 and I hope to get my blog started back up next month at tichwi.wordpress.com
I always look forward to this challenge! Having already finished the Morris and Non-fiction list definitely helps keep this under control!
My Goodreads shelf: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/16278063?shelf=hub-challenge-2016
Trying it again. Hopefully I will conquer the challenge this time! https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/13416059-pamela?shelf=2016-hub-reading-challenge
I have never participated in this challenge. I am interested in giving it a try.
This is the shelf I created on Goodreads.
I’m in. I was one book short for both the Nonfiction and the Morris Challenges this year (issues with library waiting lists!), but that’s still a good leg up. Tracking at https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/9321469-margaret?shelf=yalsa-hub-challenge-2016
Okay, I’m in. This is my first year so we’ll see if I can follow through. Here’s my goodreads shelf where I’ll keep track of everything I read:
Good luck everybody!
I’m in it to win it. Well, I’m in it to at least to read some FANTASTIC teen lit. Year 2.
I will be participating!
I’m in! This will be my first year participating, and there are a lot of books that look good! Some are on my “to read” list, others are ones that would generally be outside of my reading zone. I did a different reading challenge last year, and loved how it exposed me to good books and authors I wouldn’t have known about otherwise.
Count me in! I’ll bookstagram my progress:
I love your instagram! I just followed you (I’m amysaysread). You’re inspiring me to get more creative with my reading instagrams. :)
Just got my first unread book from the list. Can’t wait to dive in.
I’ll be sharing via my library’s catalog and my Goodreads page.

I am excited to participate this year! I will track my progress through Goodreads.
I’m going to try – in graduate school now, but it’s a fun challenge to have a break from the textbooks! I will track on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/14300039-lucie-ferguson
Hurray! The Hub Reading Challenge always helps keep me motivated, and I’ve got some of my students joining me in the Challenge! Really excited about the expanded YA inclusions from across ALA’s other divisions this year. I add titles to a YALSA Hub Challenge shelf on Goodreads as I finish, under username Ms. Pansulla.
I’ve started my list on GoodReads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/2072864-kim?shelf=hub-challenge-2016
I forgot to post until now though I did start the challenge when it first opened. I love this challenge!
Anyway, the one thing that’s hard about GoodReads is that it’s not really equipped to show more than one reading of any given book (don’t they read the same books multiple times themselves?), so I’m putting a new note in each one that I’ve read before.
If you hit the “more options” button under the review box, there’s a box where you can tally how many times you’ve read a book, though it will only count for your yearly stats for the date you’ve put for “read.” I like to keep a list of the dates I’ve previously read something, along with previous reviews in the review itself, as well as tally of the total number of times I’ve read something.
Also, I forgot to mention: thank you for adding the additional awards this year!
I’m in! I’ll be blogging my way through the challenge at https://bookcurious.wordpress.com/ and keeping track on Goodreads – https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/64131-amanda?shelf=2016-yalsa-hub-challenge.
Oh, every year I come so close, maybe this is my lucky year. Started Shadowshaper as my first book!!
I will be logging on my Twitter
I’m going to give this a go. I will be blogging about it here: http://bookfin.blogspot.ca/
I’ve been looking forward to this since last year’s! I’ll be keeping track on both Goodreads (https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/5099486-lynndee-the-library-lush) and my YouTube channel, The Library Lush (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrXfoN6tiIJBTrwOyrzhBdQ)
I’m in. Looking forward to it.
I’m always up for a reading challenge. Let’s do this. I’ll be keeping track on Goodreads and Instagram.
I am ready to beat this challenge again this year!
I always look forward to this challenge! It’s a great motivator for me to familiarize myself with this year’s award winning YA lit!
I’m in! I’ll track on my Goodreads account here: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/29013958-abigail-vogler
Can’t wait to get started :)
This will be my 4th time attempting the challenge. Last year was the first time I completed it, and I feel confident that I can do it again especially now that audiobooks are accepted. I will be tracking my reading on Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/237525?shelf=the-hub-challenge-2016.
I am going to give it a good try! It will provide a real incentive to stay up on the best of YA material!
I think this will be my 4th time attempting. Haven’t completed yet, but maybe this will be the year! Especially with the expanded list of acceptable titles, and the fact that I attempted the Morris/Non-Fiction Challenge, so I’ve got a few titles finished already – yay! I’ll be tracking progress on GoodReads – https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/4988215-amy?shelf=2016-hub-reading-challenge
I am joining the challenge for another year. I enjoy this challenge as it exposes me to the best selection of books for my students. I share with them as I read, both as a role model, but also to catch their interest in the books. I love when my students read my reviews and decide to read the book. I will be tracking my books through GoodReads.
I am joining the challenge for this year. I am glad there are more choices!
First timer! I’ll be tracking my list on GoodReads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/7449864?shelf=hub-challenge-2016

I’m joining a little late, but I’ve read a lot of the titles in the last month, so I’m hoping that still counts!
Anything you’ve read since awards were announced counts!
I’m late to the game, but I’m in!
Count me in! Been reading already, but just now getting around to stating my intentions. :-)
I’m in – I’ll be reporting with the GoodReads group. I’m Jmrunninglib
We’ll give this a shot. I’ve already read some of these since the list came out, but I’m now officially stating my interest in the challenge. I’ll be joining the Goodreads group as well. My shelf link: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/2300357-kate?shelf=hub-challenge-2016
I’m late, but I’m gonna do it! :D
Excited to participate this year!
I’m a little late, but I’m going to try! This will be good motivation for me to become a better blogger!
It’s new and completely bare at the moment, but I will be blogging at http://theheartfullibrarian.tumblr.com/.
! somehow missed this post two months ago! I’m going to try again this year.
There’s still plenty of time!
I will try again this year–made it over half way last year before other required reading lists overcame me!
I’m a little late to the party but i’m in!
Here is my goodreads! https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/23893601
I’m in!!! Here’s my goodreads!! https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/44043582-stacie-nellis
I am currently working on the challenge :)
Looks like I’m a bit late to the game, but I’ll see if I can get enough titles checked-off by June 23rd. My semester (I’m working on MLIS now) will be over shortly, so I should have a bit of time for fun reading!
I’m looking forward to tackling the Amelia Bloomer’s and the Stonewalls.
Well I’m really late, but I just can’t resist. I just started working with young adults again, and I need to get a feel for the new great titles available to them. I created a new Goodreads account here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/55327664
I’m excited to get started!
