Horizons Transitional Books Challenge

Last year I participated in the challenge A Year of Reading Dangerously. It was consistent with a direction I wanted to be going anyway. At times it was difficult to read a more challenging book each month. Horizons is an effort to continue broadening my horizons, challenging myself, and plus providing an ongoing list of transitional books for young adults to adults. I hope to include books that are marketed to YA and adult and that they will both enjoy. I also want to invite others to participate in discussion on what they are reading to challenge themselves or what they believe should be considered. You can comment on this post or participate in the forums.

The following is my list of books for last year (minus a couple I don’t want on the list), and the first book I want to add is Night Watch from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series.
