2012 Challenge: The Eclectic Reader 2012 Challenge



January 1 - December 21, 2012

The Eclectic Reader 2012 Challenge is a challenge that pushes you outside your comfort zone by reading up to 12 books during the year from 12 different genres.

This challenge fits me perfectly because I consider myself an eclectic reader. 

You can join in by:
  • Creating a blog post committing yourself to the challenge.
  • If you do not have a blog, you can create a shelf on Goodreads or a similar site.  Just include your name and a link to your shelf. 
  • Post your direct link to your challenge here.
  • Select, read, review a book from each genre listed below during the year for a total of 12 books.
  • You can choose your books ahead of time or as you go. 
  • Can combine this challenge with others.
  • Where a book is identified by more than one genre, it may only count for either genre but not both.
  • Each time you read and review a book, share your review by providing a direct link to your review in the Linky.
Genres:
  1. Literary Fiction
  2. Crime/Mystery Fiction
  3. Romantic Fiction
  4. Historical Fiction
  5. Young Adult
  6. Fantasy
  7. Science Fiction
  8. Non Fiction
  9. Horror
  10. Thriller/Suspense
  11. Classic
  12. Your favorite genre - URBAN LIT (not my favorite, but I felt it needed to be added)
I do not know what books I will read, but it should be fairly easy since I have a book I want to read from every genre!
