Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge 2019

For this one, I will read as many books as possible.

Ok, so here are the challenge details and rules….

Reading Challenge Details:

  • Runs January 1, 2019 – December 31, 2019 (books read prior to 1/1/2019 do not count towards the challenge). You can join anytime you want, though the sign up linky will close Nov. 15, 2019. 
  • The goal is to read as many Contemporary Romance books as you’d like. 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 challenge yourself.
  • Books 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.
  • 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.

Please include a link back to this sign-up post so others can join the reading challenge too. This will be your “update post” when doing the monthly link up.
  • You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads, LibraryThing, BookLikes, etc., so as long as you have a dedicated shelf for the 2018 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge (your designated “update post” for the monthly link up) and your profile is not private.

Book Challenge by Erin 10.0 - General Rules
• First and foremost, have fun. Don't stress. No one is being judged, graded, or penalized. Even if you finish only one book the entire challenge, if you enjoy it and it's an accomplishment for you, then that's awesome.
• The challenge will run from JANUARY 1, 2019 to APRIL 30, 2019. No books that are started before 12 a.m. on January 1 or finished after 11:59 p.m. on April 30 will count. (We live in different time zones – follow this according to your own time zone.)
• Each book must be at least 200 pages long. Audio books are fine too.
• A book can only be used for one category, and each category can only be completed once. If you want to switch the category of a book, or change the book you originally chose, no worries.
• You can read your books in any order you choose.
• Rereads can be used only once. If a book you love fits into a category, go ahead and visit it again. Read it in its entirety. But, only do this once for the challenge.
• There will be a photo album for each category with links to books chosen. Please comment on the photo for each of your books when you finish reading them. A comment can include a review, a rating, a recommendation…other readers want to hear what you thought of your choice. (If you need help with this, let me know…or there is a file attached to our group explaining what to do.)
• There will be 10 book categories with a possibility of earning 200 points. That’s 10 books in four months. For some of you, this will be a BIG challenge; for others it will be easy peasy. It’s all for fun, remember!
• Book categories will be posted December 1st to give you time to gather books in preparation.
• After the categories are posted, please post a preliminary list with books of your choice according to their categories on the facebook group page by December 15th (if possible). If you need help with a particular category or want a book suggestion, we as a community of reading enthusiasts can help each other. (Late entries will still be accepted.)
• The first three people who finish the challenge will be invited to contribute a category for the next challenge. The following will get a small prize from me (1st to complete 1st round; 1st to complete both rounds; and WILD CARD random draw – all who finish the 10 book challenge will qualify as an entry!) Plus, everyone who completes the challenge will gets all sorts of recognition and support!
• Lastly, have fun. Don't stress. No one is being judged, graded, or penalized. Even if you finish only one book the entire challenge, if you enjoy it and it's an accomplishment for you, then that's awesome. Wait, I’ve read that somewhere before…Good luck!

No Christmas Decorations Up Yet

And I'm not sure when they'll get up. I've tried for many not to have any up until after Thanksgiving, and with me decorations don't get so elaborate.

Again, I don't yet know when any decorations will go up in my house. some people on my street already have the inflatable Santas and snowmen and reindeers on their lawns, as well as the lights hanging under the roof. 

One year there was no tree at all in my house, but I still felt in the spirit. One can feel that way without getting elaborate with decorations.

At work, we are planning to get a tree up as soon as we can. And next week, I will be doing the paper-cup Christmas bells. Getting excited!

My Paper Cone Turkeys

A little late, but I still wanted to post pictures of my paper cone turkeys before they get put way until next year.

The Annual Moody Reader Reading Challenge 2019

Last year, I participated in this challenge for the subjects of Mental Illness, Dystopia, Banned Books and LGBTQ+ since no challenges were offered for these. (I discovered this one for Dystopia way too late in the year and will see if it is offered for next year.)  This made me decide to create a Mental Health Challenge for next year.

For now, I will be signing up for the genres of LGBTQ+, Feminism, and Banned Books. If the Dystopia one does not get offered and if the Retellings one I did this year does not appear for next year, I will be adding those as well.

I was surprised at how successful I was with my challenge and managed to read 27 of my original 57 books. That is way more back listed books than I have ever read in a year, though it may not sound like a lot, its 50%! I also concluded that there are quite a few back listed books that I am no longer interested in (which is the case with at least 10 of those 57 books.) Thus I’ve become quite brutal in my Keep or Skip efforts to clean out my TBR for this year’s Moody Reader Reading Challenge.

The Goals for the Challenge…

#1 – Target backlisted books I am excited to read soon.

#2 – Sort them into genres that I will focus on during the year.

#3 – Mix it up so there will be all sorts of books to fit every mood!

#4 – Change the list if I learn about a different book that I want to read soon.

What are your reading goals? You may want to read all the retellings you’ve never gotten to or have a list of second books in series that you want to MAKE sure to get to. You may be a fantasy lover who wants to try more contemporaries… whatever your genre or however many genres you make a list for you can have a moody list ready to go when you’re in the mood for a GREAT book!
My Genres for the Challenge:
LGBTQ+ Reading:
  1. Nine Perfect Strangers--Liane Moriarty
  2. The Gangster We Are All Looking For--Le Thi Diem Thuy
  3. A Raisin in the Sun--Lorraine Hansberry
  4. The Female Persuasion--Meg Wolitzer
  5. White Houses--Amy Bloom
  6. Stella By Starlight--Sharon M. Draper
  7. The Holy Forest--Robin Blaser
  8. Hard Love--Ellen Wittlinger
  9. You Know Where to Find Me--Rachel Cohn
  10. The Art of Losing--Lizzy Mason
  11. Save the Date--Mary Kay Andrews
  12. Blameless--Gail Carrier
  13. On a Sunbeam--Tillie Walden
  14. Unto Us a Son is Given--Donna Leon 
  15. Rebel--Beverly Jenkins
  16. Bloodrose--Andrea Cremer
  17. She Wanted It All--Kathryn Casey
  18. Sam & Ilsa's Last Hurrah--Rachel Cohn & David Leviathan
  19. The Poet X--Elizabeth Acevedo
  20. The Night Watch--Sarah Waters
  21. The Backstagers, Volume 1--James Tynion IV

Wet Friday

That's the way it has been today where I live. I'd said yesterday that I planned on staying home most of the day today, especially since rain was predicted. But I did get out for a while, just avoiding Target and Kmart. I needed to mail some things. The Goodwill had a sale today, but it was surprising unbusy, probably because I got there after noon. I'd done the same last year on the day after Thanksgiving and the clothing racks had been ransacked, with clothes on the floor under the racks. Not as much this year. I did drive past Target both yesterday and today, and saw the parking lot full. 

It hasn't been raining too heavily today, just sprinkling a little off and on. But the roads and grounds are still wet and whether or not to go out in wet weather is always a question I have to ponder. But I stuck to my word to avoid Target today. I don't even even to know if it would really be like people think it will be:

Thursday, November 22, 2018
