The Eclectic Reader Challenge

  • Select, read and review a book from each genre listed below during the year for a total of 12 books.
*  You can choose your books as you go or create a list in advance. You may combine this challenge with others if you wish.
*  Where a book is identified by more than one genre eg historical romance, it may only count for either the historical fiction or romantic fiction genres – not both.

I will list each book by its genre.
