Pearl at Pearl's World of Romance is hosting the Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge in 2010. She writes:
While searching and coming across challenges to join for 2010, I didn't find the contemporary romance reading challenge I was looking for. And what do you do when you don't find what you're looking for? You create it yourself. So here it is...and I hope you will join me in the Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge 2010!Pearl emphasizes that by contemporary romance she means: 'straight contemporary, so without paranormal, fantasy or time-travel elements. Sexy, steamy contemporaries are eligible and so are category romances. (i.e. Harlequin Blaze, Harlequin Presents, Harlequin Super Romances, Silhoutte Desires, etc.)'
- Read at least 10 contemporaries
- You don't have to pre-select your books, you can just add them as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed. Nothing is set in stone!
- The books you choose can crossover into or from other challenges you are participating in.
- Pearl will be creating review posts where you can link your own reviews, but reviews are optional.
