AND

Why I Want to Participate:

I love paranormal books, I do. But sometimes I need a break from the para part and want to stick with the normal. Contemporary romances are relatable, riddled with uncomplicated humor and every-day sort of issues. And because this year's set of contemps seem to be made entirely out of win, there's no way I could've passed up this challenge, since I'll be reading boatloads of contemporaries this year!



Challenge: Read 10 YA or MG fantasy that are released in 2012

WHAT I HAVE FOR THIS CHALLENGE:

WHAT I WANT FOR THIS CHALLENGE:


Why I Want to Participate:

I. LOVE. Fantasy. It's definitely one of my favorite genres, besides, OBVS, paranormal romance. And fantasy could mean so many things - there's paranormal fantasy, historical fantasy, urban fantasy, high fantasy, etc. This genre rocks! and it gives me loads of breathing room as far as which ones I can pick for the challenge. Really, all I have to say is 10 books? Really, that's all?



Level: 2, which is 10 books

WHAT I HAVE FOR THIS CHALLENGE:
  • The Gathering Storm by Robin Bridges
  • The Revenant by Sonia Gensler
  • Lily of the Nile by Stephanie Dray
  • Plain Kate by Erin Bow
  • Allegiance by Cayla Kluver
  • The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
WHAT I WANT FOR THIS CHALLENGE:


Why I Want to Participate:

Historical Fiction books are awesome. I love that despite the time period of whatevs, the heroines/heroes and their leading men (or ladies) are oftentimes dealing with contemporary issues. It's a wonderful feeling, to be able to relate to a girl from, say, the Victorian era, despite the beautiful, fluffy dresses and the dance cards, because, hey, our emotions and our struggles TRANSCEND EVEN TIME.

So what about you? Are you participating in any of these challenges this year? What are you participating in? Got any reading suggestions to ensure success?

Wow, you're doing so many challenges! Good luck! I get what you mean about paranormal - I love it too, but sometimes it's nice to curl up with a great contemp :).

Liz- Yeah, I'm signing up for a few more than last year. I'm looking to REALLY challenge myself this year :)

Wow, good for you for tackling so many challenges! I'm so lazy about tracking things, even though I finish the ones I set out to do. Good luck on meeting your goals this year!

There's a book called The Adaption by Sara Spencer that I read recently, all true paranormal experiences. It's amazing!
