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!)

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!
