2016 Pick Your Genre Reading Challenge Sign Up

2016 Pick Your Genre Reading Challenge

This year instead of a separate historical or erotic challenge we're doing something a little different. Everyone can pick their own genre to focus on in the challenge!

Ex--I might decide to do the Contemporary version but you could pick the Urban Fantasy version. 

Any genre is welcome even if not listed.

You can tackle more than one genre too!

Challenge Details

Challenge Dates: Jan 1, 2016 and ends Dec 31, 2016

Once you've read it then link it up!

What Counts
  • Any book over 80ish pages counts (please no short stories)
  • Books MUST be read in 2016
  • All book formats count!
  • Re-reads & challenge cross overs count!
Anyone can join! If you don't blog you can use a dedicated shelf on Goodreads or similar.

There's an event giveaway! Each review (one per book) left on a major platform--Goodreads, Amazon, etc--and linked in the review widget will be an entry for the end of the year.

Quarterly Update posts will be done so we can see how everyone's doing and cheer each other along :) They'll count for the year end giveaway too!

There's a FB group for the challenge--join to get book suggestions, socialize and get event news!
