So I've been thinking lately of what type of challenge I want to have when I am done with Helluva Halloween, but then I thought, do I really want to limit myself to reading mostly one type of book for the forseeable future? Because the problem with book lists is that as soon as I get them organized and pretty and I've crammed every possible thing in that I can, along comes some shiny new book that doesn't follow the pattern at all, and then I want to read books like that, and the list is out the window. Plus, there were so many things I wanted to pick next, and how do I choose?
So then I thought, what if I do a full year of challenges, and make them continuous, so that they last through out the year, and the goal is just to keep track of how many I read in that year (and how many you read, if you want in), but each will have it's own page and graphic and lists.
I will have links to all in my sidebar, and people can pop in and tell me what they're reading in that genre, and who knows, maybe if something strikes my fancy, there will be a contest/giveaway or two...
There are a few I know I want to do (dystopian, fairy tale, magical realism) and some that I think I maybe want to do (award winners, banned/challenged, historical), and I am pretty wide open on the rest.
So my questions to you are
- Do you like the idea of a set of year-round challenges?
- Do you have any suggestions for genres? I'm thinking twelve total, so that even though they all run year-round, I can highlight one each month.
- Would you stop by and add your reviews in these genres?
