The aim is to read a total 20 books, over ten categories, in 2010.
~Read 2 books from each category, making a requirement of 20 books total.
~The categories are intended to be loose guidelines only, if you decide it fits, then it fits. (Apart from those marked **)
~Categories marked with ** have tighter rules, and these must be followed.
~Each book can only qualify for one category.
~Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
~Books read from 01/01/2010 to 31/12/2010 are eligible.
**ETA: I decided on October 10, 2010 not to finish this challenge. I know that I won't be reading any books from a charity or any books that are older than I am.
Young Adult (Any book classified as young adult or featuring a teenage protagonist counts for this category.)
1. Magic Under Glass by Jaclyn Dolamore
2. A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker
T.B.R. ** (Intended to help reduce the old T.B.R. pile. Books for this category must be already residents of your bookshelves as of 1/11/09.)
1. Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris
2. Club Dead by Charlaine Harris
Shiny & New (Bought a book NEW during 2010 from a bookstore, online, or a supermarket? Then it counts for this category. Second-hand books do not count for this one, but, for those on book-buying bans, books bought for you as gifts or won in a giveaway also count!)
1.My Soul to Keep by Rachel Vincent
2. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer
Bad Blogger’s *** (Books in this category should be ones you’ve picked up purely on the recommendation of another blogger (any reviews you post should also link to the post that convinced you give the book a go)
1. The Naughty List by Suzanne Young (I found this review at Sharon Loves Books and Cats)
2. Alice I Have Been by Melanie Benjamin (I found this review at BookHounds)
Charity (Support your local charity shops with this category, by picking up books from one of their shops. Again, for those on book-buying bans, books bought for you as gifts also count, as long as they were bought from a charity shop.)
New in 2010 (This category is for those books newly published in 2010 (whether it be the first time it is has been released, or you had to wait for it to be published in your country, it counts for this one!) )
1. Captivate by Carrie Jones
2. Explorer X-Alpha by LM Preston
Older Than You (Read two books that were published before you were born, whether that be the day before or 100 years prior!)
Win! Win! (Have a couple of books you need to read for another challenge? Then this is the category to use, as long as you don’t break the rules of the other challenge by doing so! )
1. Gone by Lisa McMann
2. The Dark Divine by Bree Despain
Who Are You Again? (This one isn’t just for authors you’ve never read before, this is for those authors you have never even heard of before!)
