Anyone who visits my blog regularly knows that I rarely review Contemporary Romance. Why, you ask, don't I read/review contemporaries? I really don't have a definite answer for that, and could probably go on all day about all of the reasons I prefer to not read contemporaries. I won't bore you with my gripes, Instead I'll say that it is a new year and high time that I gave Contemporary Romance a fighting chance.
During 2008 I read some really good reviews on quite a few contemporaries and I've compiled a list of books that I want try. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I find some gems and can make contemporary one of my go to genre's of choice in the future.
I've decided to put my goal of reading more contemporaries in challenge form, hoping that if it's out there for all to see, I'll have a better chance of sticking with it. I'm inviting anyone who wants to join me in the Contemporary Romance Challenge to please do so!
Rules are as follows:
1. Any contemporary romance of your choice is eligible. By contemporary I mean any book placed in a contemporary setting with no paranormal elements.
2. Read at least one contemporary romance a month and post a review for that book within the month. I haven't set a unified date because I'm not good at sticking to dates, and having no monthly time limit should ensure that everyone in the challenge is able to read at least one contemporary a month.
3. After posting your review leave a link to it here. This will make it easier for me, and anyone else interested, to find your review.
That's it. Please leave a comment letting me know if you want to join in so that I have a complete list of participants to link to each month. Happy reading!
It is not too late to join, leave a comment if you'd like to participate!
