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!)

Romance Reading Challenge

Reading Challenge

hosted at ...the bookworm...

Sign- up here

  1. The challenge runs from January 1st, 2013 through December 31st, 2013.
  2. "Romance" isn't limited to steamy Harlequin novels. There is a huge selection of books in this category such as contemporary romance, historical romance, romantic suspense and paranormal romance to name a few. As long as the story has romantic love between the two main characters your selection will fit this challenge. The novels do not need to have a happy ending either, there can also be unrequited love.
  3. Choose at least 5 novels to read. You can change your choices at any time. Crossovers between other challenges are fine.
  4. All kinds of books count, ebooks and audiobooks too. Re-reads are fine, no ARC's or review copies. The books you read for the challenge should be books you choose as personal reads, not books that are review requests from authors or publicists.
  5. If you are looking for suggested reading see Best Romance Novels Today or Romance Novels on Wiki or check out Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
  6. Read your book selections at your own pace in 2012 then post the link to your review(s). You don't need to have a blog, posting your reviews on Goodreads and LibraryThing counts as well. If you do have a blog and are joining us, please consider linking back to this post either with text or with one of the buttons provided below to help spread the word.
In my opinion, you can't go wrong with Jane Austen, Nicholas Sparks and Nora Roberts, to name a few.

And there are Prizes!

1. Wicked Gift by Sean Michael (m/m)
2. The Missing Monarch by Rachella McCalla ~ quick review
3. Moosed-Up by Tiffinie Helmer ~ quick review
