2015 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge

Here's a new one for me. Though I like reading all kinds of romance, I'll be doing this one even though  only contemporary romance is allowed.  Will try to find other challenges for other kinds of romance. For this, I'll pick Level one for now, but may go up.   Sign up at Book Vixen for this one.  

2015 Contemporary Romance Reading ChallengeThe Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge was originally created and hosted by Pearl’s World of Romance, then was passed on to Fatin atRomance Book Maven, and is now hosted by The Book Vixen.

Reading Challenge Details:
  • Runs January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015 (books read prior to 1/1/2015 do not count towards the challenge). You can join anytime before 9/30/2015. Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to read as many Contemporary Romance books as you’d likeBooks that qualify for this challenge can be young adult, new adult, or adult. Books can be M/F, M/M, or F/F. Books must be a work of fiction (sorry, nonfiction does not qualify for this challenge). Romances with the following elements do not qualify for this reading challenge: paranormal, historical, time-travel, fantasy, science fiction, or mystery/suspense/thriller. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. You can move up a level as often as you’d like but no moving down. Remember, the idea is to challengeyourself.
  • Books can be any format (print, ebook, audio).
  • Novellas that are 100 pages in length (give or take), as well as full-length novels, will count for this reading challenge.
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
