WILDCARDS

description Hate historical? Can't stand Science Fiction? Don't worry.

For this challenge you will be allowed TWO wildcards (NB. ONE wildcard for 'Secret Admirer' level.)

Each wildcard will allow you to exchange one category for any other genre. The only rule is that any book that you read for that genre MUST have a romantic element to it.

For example, you could use one of your wildcards to swap 'Erotic Romance' for 'Young Adult'. As long as the book (or books) you read for 'Young Adult' has some romance going on in it, somewhere, even if it's just a kiss, that will count. Please explain briefly how your book fits though.

I've had it on my "future challenges" list for a bit. I wanted to get some others finished up first as I seem to have a addiction with the challenges lately and can't stop signing up :)

I was like that a few years ago and burned out! I totally changed how I chose the challenges I played. I always signed up for the top level of everything I came across - not anymore.

Good Luck!
