Now with already quite a few challenges I said to myself in serious voice; Leontine, you just can’t handle anything more! You will have various things on your plate next year and a TBR pile to consider as well. (Yes, I talk to myself) Still, when I saw a post on next challenge it practically screamed my name, a genre I hold so dead AND it has various subgenres in which I read quite a few books. I’m guessing Urban Fantasy is included as well and I gots me some Ilona Andrews, Erica Hayes and Chloe Neill. I’ve also got Elizabeth Vaughan, Anne Bishop, and Suzanne Collins I’ve got waiting to be read. All books I can add for this challenge so I’m going for the full 20 books to be read.
1. Anne Bishop – The Invisible Ring
2. Chloe Neill – Some Girls Bite
3. Erica Hayes – Shadowfae
4. Elizabeth Vaughan – White Star
5. Ilona Andrews – Magic Bites
6. Suzanne Collins – Hunger Games
7. Laurell K Hamilton – Kiss Of Shadows
(there will be added to the list as I go)
The rules are as followed:
The Fantasy Reading Challenge can include YA Fantasy or Historical Fantasy, Science Fiction Fantasy or any other sub genre of Fantasy.
