Challenges 2011

I got out of the habit of updating this page. Sometime in February 2012 I'll look at the master list that I did keep up and see if I actually finished any of these.

This page contains all the challenges I am attempting this year(2011).

If you like the sound of any of these and want to join yourself, use the buttons on my left sidebar to take you to their sign up pages.

This is the first challenge I signed up for.
Challenge Rules:
  • Pick your ‘heat’ challenge!
  • Books can be novella's, novels, or a combination of the two. They can also be print and/or ebook format. 
  • Challenge runs from January 1, 2011 - December 31, 2011
  • You can start the challenge anytime during the year.
  • When you finish your challenge, come back to our "Challenge" page at the top of the blog, leave a comment and tell us who you are, what ‘heat’ level you completed, and if you have a book blog, link your challenge page using Mr. Linky.
They have several levels and I'm feeling ambitious. I'm trying for this one.

The Scorch Challenge:

Read twenty forbidden books in the sub-genre’s of erotica, erotica romance, and/or BDSM.

I'll list the books here as I read them.

1. Wild Things1: Cougar by Beverly Rae


Another Challenge. Love this one.

This challenge is for those who enjoy reading gay romances (also known as m/m or male/male romances) or those who are interested in starting. If you aren’t familiar with this genre, it consists of novels and stories where the main focus is the romantic relationship between the male protagonists.
• You don’t have to select your books ahead of time. Even if you do, you can change your books as you go. Your books can crossover with other challenges.
• You can join at any time between now and the latter part of 2011. Just give yourself enough time to read your chosen amount of books.
• eBooks, hardbacks, paperbacks, audio books, and re-reads are welcome. Comics and manga count as well.

Out of the five reading levels, again I'm going to try to conquer the hardest, 20+.

Plus there is this:

If you’d like to make your challenge a little more challenging, try any or all of these OPTIONAL add-ons:

- Read 3 or more books in the same series

- Read 3 or more books with the same theme (Firefighters, Pirates, Friends-to-Lovers, etc)
- Read 1 book that isn’t your usual type of read (Cheating Hero, BDSM, Menage, etc)
- If you’re not new to reading m/m romances, go back and re-read the first title you ever read. Do you feel differently about the book now than you did when you first read it?

Don't know how many of those I'll be able to meet, but the first two should be no problem.

I'll list them here as I read them, and mention if they meet any of the additions.

1. Preternaturals 1: Allergies by TA Chase
2. Preternaturals 2: Nick of Time by TA Chase
3. Inhabiting the Night by Carolina Valdez
4. Blaque/Bleu by Belinda Mcbride
5. Lust & Fae by Joyee Flynn
6. Lust & Vamp by Joyee Flynn
7. In Their Own Skins 1: Shifting Sands by Kiernan Kelly
8. In Their Own Skins 2:Mark Of Cain by Kiernan Kelly
9. In Their Own Skins 3:Uncaged by Kiernan Kelly
10. Wolf Creek Pack 1: Full Moon Mating by Stormy Glenn
11. Wolf Creek Pack 2: Just A Taste Of Me
12. Wolf Creek Pack 3: Man To Man
13. Wolf Creek Pack 4: Blood Prince
14. Wolf Creek Pack 5: Love, Always, Promise
15. Wolf Creek Pack 6: Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf

And a third challenge.

Participants can choose any 12 novels released prior to 2011.  You should also select 24 novels released in 2011.

Timeline: January 2011 to December 2011

  • The reading challenge is open to everyone.
  • You don’t need a blog to participate.
  • You can join at anytime to participate in this challenge.
  • eBooks, Audio, and already read all count.
 Again, I'll post my list here as I read them.(I won't count rereads for this one. I'd be done way too quick and have less reason to read my newer books.)

My 2011 list-
1. Master of Smoke by Angela Knight

My list of those prior to this year-

One more challenge.

-Challenge goes from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011.

  1. Hey Beth, you might want to check out the challenge I'm doing-it has different levels for reading. It is the 2011 E-Book Challenge, and you pick your level. It is the only one I'm doing just now. There is a link to it on My Odd Little World
