I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

another challenge?

Samantha at Bookworms and tea lovers is hosting a challenge I'm thinking about joining.
The goal:

To read one book in the following genres: crime fiction, detective fiction, mystery fiction, horror fiction, thriller fiction, romance fiction, science fiction, action/adventure fiction, fantasy fiction, realistic fiction, historical fiction, and western fiction.
The challenge started in November 2008 so I'm a little late but I was wondering if I've read each of these....

She's given us three levels: read one book from each, delete the one you read the most & the one of your choosing, delete the one you read most. There is a link with specific descriptions.

All are fiction (dang, After Etan won't count):
detective: The Cat Who Went into the Closet reviewed
mystery: Dashing through the Snow reviewed
horror: The Summoning reviewed
thriller: A Circle of Souls
romance: Dogs and Goddesses reviewed
science fiction: Heartmate
action/adventure: The Spy Who Came for Christmas
fantasy: A Book Dragon
realistic: The Accidental Mother
historical: It's In His Kiss (historical romance) sniff, sniff
western: The Man from Nowhere

Oh My! I've only got two genres to read! I wonder if I can before the end of November....maybe not, she wants them reviewed!

IF, and I do mean IF, I do this, I'll choose level A
A: Read 10 books, drop the genre you read the most and one of your own choosing.
I'd drop Historical because of all the historical romance I read. It's a toss up as to which of the other two I'd drop, depend on what book looks good. I'm not reading Carrie or Cujo nor do I want the book to be from the murder's point of view. ummm, I'm sure there will be something I can read. Is there such a think a "light" horror?

here's some more info.
The rules

You may not read more than 1 book per genre

All books must be read within the challenge period

No crossovers within the challenge, each genre should have a separate book

Crossovers with other challenges are allowed

Audio books are allowed, graphic novels are not

You may make a list of books, but that’s not mandatory and you can change your picks at any time before or during the challenge

Interesting challenge. Next year I will be more selective with my challenges.
