The Fantasy Project: 101 Books in 10 Years #101FantasyProject


Hi, everyone! Time for a 2013 Reading Challenge!!


This challenge is being hosted by Michelle at The Fantasy Project

Here are the details copied from Michelle's blog:
The Fantasy Project: 101 Books in 10 Years

The guidelines for The Fantasy Project
  • Read 101 fantasy books from the list of 101, or the entire list of 813, in 10 years (access the lists at the top of the blog).
  • choose 101 fantasy books from the list (due to the large amount of urban/paranormal fantasy titles on the list, I have made this exception--26 titles can be titles that are not on the list, i.e. newer releases that came out after the list was compiled, more books of a high fantasy nature, etc.) To break it down...75 titles from the list and 26 that are not on the list = 101 books total.
  • you can read other books in a series in which the first book, or other books in the series, appears on the list, to complete the challenge (for example, Graceling by Kristin Cashore, first book in the Graceling Realm series, made the list in 2009. Further books have been released in the series since the list was compiled and those books can be read for this challenge...these DO NOT have to be part of the 26 titles option--see above).
  • post your list on your blog (or on Goodreads or another social media site, if you do not have a blog)
  • choose your completion goal date ten years in the future and make note of it with your list of titles (like this:  reading goal--101 books  goal dates--August 20, 2013 - August 20, 2023)
  • come back here and post the link to your list in the linky below
  • write a review (or a short summary) on the book when finished and link it to the title in your list (or link to your review on Goodreads, again, if you don't have a blog)
  • there are pages at the top of the blog that link to spreadsheets where you can list/link up your reviews (they will be listed by author's last name, i.e. A - F, etc.)
  • there is a members list page, where I will list your name, blog, goal date, and link to your list
  • there is a "introduce yourself" page for members
  • when you have completed the challenge, come add your link to the Completed Challenges page
  • If you happen to host a read-a-long, or an event or challenge surrounding one of the titles on your list, post about it at this PAGE
  • I will try to have periodic group check-ins too
  • grab the button from sidebar 
A few more important details
  • this challenge can be crossed over with any other challenges
  • your link in the linky below must lead to your list, not just your main blog address. Any links that are blog links only will be deleted
  • the list must be made in advance. The idea is to work toward reading fantasy you may have been otherwise neglecting and/or the fantasy titles/authors you love. However, the list does not have to be set in stone. You can change out titles as the mood suits you.
  • every 2 - 3 months we will have what we'll call the Wheel of Fortune (borrowing from The Classics Club classics spin idea) where you make a list of 15 books from your list (i.e. 5 you're dreading, 5 you can't wait for, 5 favorites or rereads--yes, rereads are okay OR 5 urban fantasy, 5 high fantasy, 5 by the same author...the list is pretty much up to you). On a predetermined date, I will randomly draw (random.org) a number from 1 - 15 and the number that's chosen will be the book you read from your list of fifteen.
  • our Twitter hashtag is #101FantasyProject

  2. In this new winner in the new adult erotica library based on contemporary Romance, Megan, left at the altar in Leicestershire, seeks healing and diversion on a tea estate in Malawi. On her flight, she encounters Mike, the eldest son and a real boor. She considers turning around to fly back, but the rest of the family go out of their way to be friendly and welcoming. Then she finds that it’s all a conspiracy – they want her to marry the boor, whom they assure her is not a boor at all, but just acting boorishly because he thinks she’s been brought in by his mother as a wife for him.

    Can love blossom for her in this romantic setting? Indeed it can! The estate is remarkably beautiful and the boor is extraordinarily attractive, softening her resolve to resist. A swimming accident when the boor saves her life, and a surprising mistake as she recovers consciousness, reduce them both to a serious state of confusion. A few days as an attractive convalescent give her a chance for second thoughts and a boozy night at the club causes him to be in a weakened condition, and the result is a passionate consummation that pleases everybody.
