The Eclectic Reader Challenge
December 5, 2012 26 Comments
Shelleyrae at Book’d Out is organising the Eclectic Reader Challenge for the second year running. I didn’t participate last year, but this time, I’m in! The Eclectic Reader Challenge is for people who’d like to try something outside their normal reading genres.
Shelleyrae has made a list of 12 genres, each of which you have to read a book from during 2013 (overlap with other challenges is allowed). So here’s the list with genres and the books I (tentatively) have chosen.
Translated fiction – The Double by José Saramago
Historical mystery – The Star of the Sea by Joseph O’Connor (read in January)
Romantic suspense – The Scapegoat by Daphne du Maurier
Made into a movie – The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry (read in January)
New Adult – Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan
Urban Fantasy – ???
Dystopian – Echo City by Tim Lebbon
Memoir – De boer op [To the Farmers] by Irene van Aart
LGBT – Moab is my Washpot by Stephen Fry
Action Adventure – The Lens and the Looker by Lory S. Kaufman
Humour – Solar by Ian McEwan
Published in 2013 – The River of No Return by Bee Ridgway
For a few genres I have no ideas yet. What do you suggest?
