It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge 2010

Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge 2010
Jan 1 to Dec 31

As I haven't seen many challenges for speculative fiction, I thought I would host one myself. The Speculative Fiction Reading Challenge can include young adult as well as adult books. There are many genres and sub-genres under the umbrella of 'speculative fiction' and I have listed them below. Enjoy, have fun and hopefully you will discover a new genre or author along the way. Buttons and guidelines are below as well.

Anyone can join. You don't need a blog to participate

There are four levels:

• Inquisitive – Read 3 Speculative Fiction novels.

• Enthusiastic – Read 6 Speculative Fiction novels.

• Addicted – Read 12 Speculative Fiction novels.

• Obsessed – Read 24 Speculative Fiction novels.

Any book format counts
Challenge crossovers acceptable
Make a list, or not. List may be changed

- Science Fiction
sub-genres: hard/soft SF, cyberpunk, time travel, alternative history, space opera

- Fantasy Fiction
sub-genres: dark fantasy, urban fantasy, magic realism, quest, mythical fantasy, steampunk

- Horror Fiction
sub-genres: paranormal, gothis literature, splatterpunk

- Supernatural Fiction
- Superhero Fiction
- Utopian and Dystopian Fiction
- Apocalyptic and Post-Apocalyptic Fiction

I know I'm going to read something that fits in with this. I may be Addicted or even Obsessed, I'm just not what or how many at this time so I'm going for....Inquisitive....that way I have a better chance of completing the challenge ;-D
