2013 Sub-Genre Reading Challenge

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


This challenge is being hosted by Gina at Book Dragon's Lair!

Here are the details copied from Gina's blog:
2013 Sub-Genre Reading Challenge



Requirements:
  • read three books from each genre
  • each book must be a different sub-genre (sub-genres can be found here at Writer's Digest)
  • each book counts only once for this challenge
  • books may overlap with other challenges
  • any format allowed (print, ebook, audio)
  • reviews are not necessary but a list of books read is.
  • a blog is not necessary, just comment that you want to join in
  • *addition* if you do have a blog, write up a post and link up
Now for the main genres. . .

Romance
Horror
Thriller/Suspense
Science Fiction/Fantasy
Mystery/Crime


This is not how I usually think of them but this is how Writer's Digest has broken them down. Check out the sub-genres descriptions and it will make sense.

  1. Wow, you've picked out possible sub-genres already?

    Thanks for joining me and good luck! I know three each may be a bit much, try for two each.
