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

Love is in the air...

Or at least Romance Challenges are flooding the blog world.

I already joined one reading challenge because I couldn't resist the button. Then I found Royal Reviews' challenge and finally remembered the challenges I thought up to host way back in September. I didn't see the Romance Club Challenge for 2010, there hasn't been a blog post for a couple of months so I don't know if it's happening.

Now, for 2009, I joined THREE romance challenges. For one I only had to read four books but they had specific requirements. One had to have title words or author's name matching specific letters AND do a review. The third was a straight five books. I don't know if I overlapped any books between the three but I didn't read two of the required books :-( Plus it was a category for my 999 challenge.

This year, I'm reading TEN for the 10*10*10 challenge so I joined the challenge that has me read five. Then Royal Reviews changed up their challenge and I won't need to do reviews or anything specific (different levels). THEN I have my challenge. I wasn't going to post about it yet, I swear, but this is actually perfect because you can do all three challenges and overlap books!

Sign-up for Romance Reading Challenge and read five books during 2010.
Sign-up for Royal's Romance Reading Challenge Fascinated level to read six books during 2010. (or Curious and read three)
They can be the same books! Now....
Sign-up for Fall in Love and read four books that you can use for the other two challenges. The trick is that Fall in Love is during the Fall - Sep 23 to Dec 20 and there are requirements.

I wanted a seasonal challenge and Callapidder Days was already doing a Fall into Reading. I didn't want to step on toes but the Fall into... was too cute. I guess I could have said "Danger" but my seasonal spring challenge is "Spring into Action" and I didn't want to overlap. Well. That was long-winded :-)

Cute graphic? I was looking for a tree with hearts as leaves but didn't find a nice one I could use. Oh, well. The requirements and other info is at the "sign-up" link above. Hope to see you!
