TBR Challenge 2009

There are many reader challenges around but I shall only be taking part in one. :) Avidbookreader's TBR Wednesday Challenge - details can be found here.

This year is slightly different to last with specific challenges for each month being an option. So looking ahead through the year.

January - Category Romances
Oh dear. lol. I do have some category romances in my TBR pile somewhere. Actually tonight I got one down and started reading it (then put it down after reading three pages :sigh:) as I think the first TBR day is next Wednesday. So should have something to post, and I have to face it, if it wasn't for the challenge that book may remain on my TBR pile for a lot longer.

February - A book based on a DIK review at AAR
Never been to AAR. So I shall probably just pick a book from my pile for this month.

March - Historical Romance
Now I actually think I've got a couple on my TBR pile. Maybe I'll finally get round to reading Passion by Lisa Valdez.

April - Urban Fantasy/paranormal/fantasy etc.
Lol - don't think I'll have a problem with this one.

May - Friends to lovers/unrequited love
Not really my sort of thing, but there may be something hiding in the pile. If not this month will just be a TBR book of my choice.

June - Tortured hero/heroine
This one may require me to actually look through my TBR pile. I have to be honest it's that big that I'm not that sure what's in it.

July - Wrongfully accused/just released from jail.
Another one where I'm going to have to look through and see what I've got.

August and September - New author or author you haven't read in a long time
Of the suggested authors I probably have more from September in my pile - Linda Howard, Lois Bujold, Meljean Brook. Maybe I'll finally read Demon Moon in August/September and get to carry on with the rest of the series.

October - Horror/Suspense
Think I can come up with something for this one. Maybe something urban fantasy/suspense. :)

November/December - Holiday Theme
This is the one I'll definitely be passing on, I am not a fan of holiday themed books. So will just be picking something from my TBR pile.

Ohh me too! I am trying to make myself read the blaze book I've had picked out for the last 12 days but I don't usually like categories. *sigh* I know, I know I just need to suck it up and do it.

Sarai - Glad I'm not the only one struggling with the categories. :)
