2017 Pick Your Genre Challenge

The Herd is doing the Pick Your Genre romance challenge again. I will choose to do an all-encompassing romance challenge (contemporary, historical, erotic, fantasy, mystery, m/m. f/f, etc). This way I don't need to sign up for multiple romance challenges.  Sign up at the link above.

Welcome to the 2017 Pick Your Genre Challenge
This challenge is about diving into specific genres/sub genres you love or just want to check out in 2017

You get to pick your genre. For example...
Sue might pick contemporary romance, Joan might pick urban fantasy, etc

The book just needs to fit your chosen genre.
Any book over 80 pages
Any format is fine.
Re-reads count!

You pick the number of books above that you'd like to read. 12 book minimum.

In your sign up post indicate how many books you'll be attempting. You can always move that total up as the year goes!

You can pick multiple genres as long as you read 12 for each.

Ex-- If I pick Contemporary and Erotic I'll need to read 24 total books...12 for each
