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!)

2013 Sub-Genre Reading Challenge

I always thought that I read "almost everything" but even after several years of blogging, reviews, and challenges I realized that I still limit myself when it comes to the sub-genres. Of course, I can't just read more sub-genres....I've got to make a challenge out it! ;-) 

Reading Challenge

hosted by Gina at Book Dragon's Lair

  • read three books from each genre
  • each book must be a different sub-genre (sub-genres can be found here at Writer's Digest)
  • each book counts only once for this challenge
  • books may overlap with other challenges
  • any format allowed (print, ebook, audio)
  • reviews are not necessary but a list of books read is.
  • a blog is not necessary, just comment that you want to join in
  • *addition* if you do have a blog, write up a post and link up
There are TWO levels:
  • read two from each main genre
  • read three form each main genre

Now for the main genres. . .

Science Fiction/Fantasy

This is not how I usually think of them but this is how Writer's Digest has broken them down. Check out the sub-genres descriptions and it will make sense.

One more requirement....go ahead a start on the 1st and get a head start on your reading!

let me know if I need to type out all the descriptions!

This sounds like the perfect way to branch out my reading - I'm looking forward to it!

Darlene said...

These are really interesting sub-genres. 15 books is probably going to be a stretch for me, but let's see how I do!

Thanks for hosting!

Darlene, I did think of levels then changed my mind. Try to do two in each!

Star said...

I am excited to try this =) I would very much like to visit genres that I am not accustomed to reading so, thanks for this challenge! Let's see how I do!~

I've never done a reading challenge before, but I saw this on Star's blog and thought it might be a cool way to up the number of books that I read in a year! It sounds like fun.

Darlene said...

Is there a spot for the reviews to be linked-up? Or should we leave them in the comments?

Book Dragon said...

Good question Darlene. There is now :-)
