Challenges, The Eclectic Reader Challenge

The Eclectic Reader Challenge 2012

 The Eclectic Reader Challenge 2012 is hosted by the lovely Shelleyrae over @ Book’d Out. I’m an avid follower of her blog and can thank her for opening my eyes to many different books and genres that I haven’t read before. Thank you for introducing me to the humour-crime genre- I love Janet Evanovich and Marianne Delacourt!

Anyway, to sign up just create a blog post or a folder on Goodreads and post the link on the Challenge sign-up page.

There are 12 genres to read at least one title from each during the next 12 months.

What is extra exciting is the prizes! All participants that complete the challenge by December 31st 2012 will be eligible to win a book of their choice to the value of $15AUD from or a $10US Amazon gift card or paypal funds of  US$10 to be drawn via Jan  2013.

My Pledge: (updated 30/12/12)

I think the hardest for me will be reading a horror novel…they freak me out! If anyone can recommend a title that isn’t going to give me nightmares and perhaps has a romance element to it that would be fantastic!

  1. Good luck with your challenge. I loved Exclusively Yours (and the two books that followed it in the trilogy). I did have the Anna Jacobs book out from the library a while ago but had to return it unread.


  2. Thanks Marg. I’ve read the third book in the trilogy- Yours to Keep by Shannon Stacey and LOVED it so now I’m going back to read the other 2. I picked up two of Anna Jacob’s books on sale in Kmart and thought the historical/ rural element in Australia sounded interesting. Hopefully, it’s a good read!


  3. Jayne, I’m told both Grimoire by Kim Wilkins and Madigan Mine by Kirstyn McDermott might fit the bill for not-too-scary horror with a romance element.
    I’ll be trying to combine this challenge with the AWW one, but it’s a bit daunting. Good luck with it!
