A friend of mine sent me a link to this reading challenge for 2013. The goal is to get some books off of the ever-growing to-be-read pile that so many of us have. I think I’m going to give it a shot and see how it goes. There are suggested themes for each month, but it isn’t necessarily required to stick to them. They were also originally set up by a fan of romance novels, which isn’t my favorite genre, so I’ll probably do some theme-tweaking as I go along.
The only real requirement is to post something about your chosen book on the third Wednesday of each month. Is anybody else up for reading along with me?
January 16 – We Love Short Shorts! (Short stories, Novellas, category romance)
February 20 – Recommended Read (something recommended by a fellow reader)
March 20 – Series Catch-Up (pick a book from a series you’re behind on)
April 17 – New-To-You Author
May 15 – More Than One (An author who has more than one book in your TBR pile).
June 19 – Lovely RITA (RWA RITA nominees OR winners)
July 17 – The Classics (Something classic within the romance genre – an author, a specific book, a trope/theme – I’m open to wide interpretations here!)
August 21 – Steamy reads (Erotic romance, erotica, something spicy!)
September 18 – Western (Contemporary or historical)
October 16 – Paranormal or romantic suspense
November 20 – All About The Hype (a book that created such chatter that it was inescapable).
December 18 – Holiday themes (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s Day, it’s all good!)
