If you read our previous post, you already know that we’ve decided to join our friends at The Book Vixen for their 2014 Men in Uniform Reading Challenge (sports jerseys and lab coats and camo, oh my!). But, since both of us are pretty competitive – and we tend to read a lot – we thought we’d join their 2014 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge as well.
(We’re not-so-secretly hoping that these challenges will help us conquer our To Be Read pile this year!)
The challenge objective is pretty simple: read at least 10 contemporary romance books between January 1 – December 31, 2014. Books can be in any format you want (hard copy, ebook, or audio) and can be written for young adult, new adult or adult adult audiences. Because love doesn’t discriminate, the main characters can be male/female, male/male, or female/female – we don’t care as long as the books make our hearts sigh. However, in order to count towards the challenge, all books must be a minimum of 100 pages and cannot contain historical, time-travel, fantasy, science fiction, or mystery/suspense/thriller elements. So, you know… no sparkly vampires allowed.
As we finish each book, we’ll add it to our individual lists on our Reading Challenge – Contemporary Romance page, let you know how many saucy smooches we gave it, and link to our reviews (if we have ’em). We’ll be updating this post regularly, so keep checking back with us!
We’d love for you to join us for the 2014 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge! You can do this officially by signing up with The Book Vixen using the link above (and leaving us your name and details in our comments section so that we can follow your progress), or unofficially by simply leaving the author’s name and book title in the comments section below (we’re always looking for new and fabulous book recommendations!).
