2016 Urban Fantasy & Paranormal Romance Reading Challenge

For several years I took part in the various forms of paranormal challenges hosted by Carolyn from Book Chick City. She no longer hosts these challenges 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
2014 - I read 104 books for my personal Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance Challenge
2015 - I read 126 books for my personal Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance Challenge

I'm going to continue aiming to read 100 books that are either urban fantasy or paranormal romance in 2016

  1. Good luck with this challenge. I know that the majority of my reads fit into this category as well. I'm surprised you didn't find an official challenge for it. Happy New Year and here's to 2016

    1. I expect there probably is an official challenge out there somewhere. I looked for ages last year but this year I just went with doing it on my own :-) I do love anything paranormal though, UF & PNR are both my go to genres!
