My apologies to all of you who received my last post with nothing more than a title. I incorrectly copied the graphic above, and that messed things up. Oh, well. Live and learn – and do a preview before posting.
Anyhoo…The idea of the challenge is to read one book from each of the following genres this year and post a review for each by December 21, 2012.
Participants don’t have to choose the books ahead of time, but I’ve made a tentative list.
1. Literary Fiction – suggestions welcome
2. Crime/Mystery Fiction – All Different Kinds of Free by Jessica McCann
3. Romantic Fiction – Nickels by Karen Baney (As soon as I saw the title, I knew I had to read this book.)
4. Historical Fiction – A Sound Among the Trees (almost done)
5. Young Adult – From Blah to Awe by Jenna Lucado Bishop (done)
6. Fantasy – New Spring by Robert Jordan (My kids have been wanting me to read The Wheel of Time series. Who knows what I’m getting myself into?)
7. Science Fiction – Light of Eidon by Karen Hancock
8. Non-fiction -The Son in My Eyes by Mai Spencer
9. Horror – Anyone know of something short that won’t keep me up nights and would be rated PG if it was a movie? (Can you tell this is not my genre of choice?)
10. Thriller/Suspense – Hide in Plain Sight by Marta Perry
11. Classic – Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
12. Your Favourite Genre – My Emily by Matt Patterson
