2014 Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance Personal Reading Challenge

For the last few years I've taken part in the various forms of paranormal challenges hosted by Carolyn from Book Chick City. I can't find a sign up for a 2014 challenge so I don't think she's hosting one next year but I love to keep track of the books I read so I'm just going to keep a running list here. I may change this post to an official challenge at a later date if I can find one that suits my plans.

2010 - I read 124 books for the Speculative Fiction Challenge
2011 - I read 98 books for the Horror & Urban Fantasy Challenge
2012 - I read 132 books for the Speculative Romance Challenge & the Horror & Urban Fantasy Challenge
2013 - I read 88 books for the Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance Challenge

I'm going to set myself a personal goal of reading 100 books that are either urban fantasy or paranormal romance in 2014, I didn't quite achieve that in 2013 so I'm hoping to do better next year!

    1. Hi Erin, thanks for letting me know - hopefully the official challenge will go up soon then :o) If not I'll just keep my own personal list. I've always loved urban fantasy & PNR even though I've been reading a lot more contemporary this last couple of years those will still be my favourite genres!
