And the categories for TwentyEleven are:

*1. To YA or not YA (read from the genre you read least)

3. Hot off the Presses (pub. in 2011)
I read Litttle Bee because of a review I read at Book Journey.

*5. Show It Who Is Boss (from your TBR pile)

*7. Will Power? What Will Power?

To complete the challenge you will need to read twenty books, at least one in every category. It's your choice on which categories will merit two books.
