Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Yearly: ABC's of Your Favorite Genre Challenge.

This idea comes from Yz’s A-Z challenges in the RRRC Group and Pamela’s ABC Medieval here at HEA.

This challenge is the same concept, only using your favorite genre.

Number of Books: 26

Duration: This is a yearly challenge and starts from the date of your original individual post or from the start of the month in which you begin; your choice. You can sign up any time. You can edit your original post to update, or repost each time.

Guidelines:
The challenge here is to read your favorite genre by going through the alphabet by title, author, setting, hero or heroine’s name or other major character, and series name. Even the narrator is fine, if you are listening to an audiobook. Ignore articles such as a, an, and the.

What is your favorite genre? Medieval? Western/Frontier? Contemporary? Steampunk? Chick-lit? Dragons? Supernatural? Pick one and challenge yourself to read 26 over the next year. (I’m going for Western/Frontier because Westerns are coming back in fashion! No, I’m not in denial, they are! And I’m not going to restrict myself to historical, in order to open the field.)

Example: Western/Frontier

A - Angel Creek, by Linda Howard*
B - Bailee Moore, heroine in The Texan's Wager, by Jodi Thomas
C - Caroline and the Raider, by Linda Lael Miller
D - Davidson, Carolyn, author of A Convenient Wife
… etc.
Angel Creek (Western Ladies, #2) by Linda HowardThe Texan's Wager (Wife Lottery, #1) by Jodi ThomasCaroline and the Raider (Orphan Train, #3) by Linda Lael MillerA Convenient Wife by Carolyn Davidson
For the letter X, you can use a title, author, setting, hero or heroine’s name, or even narrator that has the letter X in it.

*Note that Angel Creek could also be used for the “W” as it is part of Ms. Howard’s Western Ladies series.

General rules:
*Must be from one genre, your favorite! (You can blend a sub-genre, say Young Adult Chick Lit & Adult Chick Lit, or Romantic Suspense/Mysteries With a Touch of Romance; as long as they are closely related or overlap.)
*Must be a “Happily Ever After” (HEA) ending, not a “Happy For Now” (HFN).
*Books from other challenges may be used.
*Rereads are allowed, if it has been six months since you've read it.
*Book length of at least 100 pages.
*Audiobooks are fine.
*Your list may be posted in advance or as you go. You may swap books on your list around if you have pre-posted.

Can’t decide and feeling ambitious? Do the challenge twice. Or thrice. Do the ABC’s of contemporary romance and concurrently do the ABC’s of Regency.

Don't know how reliable this is but Shelfari has a way of searching books by character name, e.g. Ava: http://www.shelfari.com/characters/ava

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Wooah, Pam, you're doing it twice? Now I want to! Must think about this. Regency or romantic suspense? Hmmmm...


message 11: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Pam, in my search for a "Y", I came across an Yvonne in Wild Horses by Dick Francis . Dick Francis is always pretty good for adding a smidgen of romance to his mysteries; however, I don't know if that is the case here. There are also characters for "V" and "Z": Valentine Clark, several with the last name of Visborough, and a Ziggy.

Sure, Lisa, why not? :) I blended Western and Frontier (two of my books are not American West, but one set in the Australian frontier, the other set in the Canadian frontier. Then I did it again with RS & mystery with a touch of romance.

lol... I HAVE been hitting the westerns lately. Reading another one now. Homeward Hearts Too hot to go outside here. It got up to about 108-110 here today.


message 49: by Marijayne (new)

Marijayne Stegman (mjsquirrelgirl) That is yucky! And you probably have humidity to go with it. I'm originally a San Francisco Bay Area girl so I grew up with mild weather. I've been in SoCal for 30 years now but still have not completely adjusted to the heat. Last summer we had a really mild summer and it was great. Unfortunately this summer we've had the heat and humidity. We are not used to humidity here at all (ours probably hovers in the teens to low 20s most of the year). Sunday we had 60% humidity. It was really miserable. Today the humidity seems to have moved out of the area and it is quite nice with a little breeze.
