What is Simply...Challenging?

In brief, Simply...Challenging is my challenge blog. Here, I'm only listing the reading (and 1 writing) challenges I am/have taken part in, as well as book lists for each. My reviews are posted at Goodreads. Yes, it seems weird, but right now, it works for me. ;)

Reading Romances Challenge

1 January 2012 - 31 December 2012

The blogger at Reading Romances is hosting the self-titled Reading Romances Challenge.

The challenge is (obviously) to read romances.  However, what I like about this one is that it is about broadening our view of romances by reading a variety of sub-genre's and themes, which will be posted each month.  There will be a monthly link-up for review posts and possibly some giveaways.

As the sub-genre's/themes are given, I'll list them after the book choice in square brackets.  The specific category I choose for a particular month will be crossed out.
January - Hidden Star by Nora Roberts (23 January 2012/Review coming)
[first in series/new-to-you author OR teen protagonist(s) OR erotic romance/erotica]
February - [categories]
March - [categories]
April - [categories]
May - [categories]
June - [categories]
July - [categories]
August - [categories]
September - [categories]
October - [categories]
November - [categories]
December -[categories]


I chose to participate in this challenge mainly for the broad variety it promises.  I read a lot of romance (though you couldn't tell it by my reading in 2011 - it was a bad year for reading romance for me! ;) but I tend to concentrate in the paranormal and historical sub-genre's.  I hope to complete most of the categories, but we'll just have to see what they are!

As titles are read, they will be dated, a link to a review posted, and (finally, since I love to do it!) crossed out.
