Since joining Goodreads.com I have found many “new to me” authors and series. I took the site’s general “2014 Reading Challenge” and have signed up again this year. In addition to that I decided to sign up for a few reading challenges that the groups I belong to have set it’s members. This post is all about the annual reading challenge that the “Urban Fantasy” Group have set for the whole of this year (2015)…
Your goal: 7 to 38 books, depending on your level
Duration: January 1 – December 31, 2015 (Honestly, I originally designed this to be an open-ended challenge that would take however long you need to complete it. So if December rolls around and we’re still not done, we could roll it over into next year.)
– This challenge is divided into four parts. You may choose to do all parts or only one, two or three parts.
– The books may be from any genre, unless specified otherwise in a category.
– Re-reads are allowed as are books used for other challenges.
– You may post your list up front or as you go and you may make changes as you go.
Choose your level:
Fingerpaint – Any one part
Watercolour – Any two parts
Acrylic – Any three parts
Oil – All four parts
1. Red is the international colour for stop.
1.In Japan, yellow often represents courage.
1. Green is universally associated with nature. Read a book with characters trying to protect/preserve wildlife or nature OR read a book with a character that can control or influence nature (This could include anything from controlling weather, making plants grow, or communicating with animals).
1. Among Mediterranean people, purple was reserved for emperors and popes. The Japanese christened it “Imperial Purple”
Read a book featuring a character who is a member of royalty OR with a royal title in the title or series name. For example: (queen, prince, duke, emperor, raja, etc.)
Read a book in which a character dies.
1. Orange is the colour of life rafts, hazard cones, and high visibility police vests.
Read a “middle” book in any series (any book other than the first or last/most recent release)
The Council (Darkness #5) by K.F. Breene
So, have you read any of these books? Are you doing this challenge too? I found this part of the Rainbow Challenge the most fun – having to find a book that fit in with the challenge!
As always you can click on the authors’ names to go to their own websites and you can see my reviews on Goodreads, some stories I really liked and some not as much but it made me source books that I would have missed if left to my own devises. Remember, a favourite author, book or series could be just around the corner…..
I will continue to post more as I complete each section with the tag/label #ReadingRainbowYearlyChallenge2015 to make it easier for you to find the relevant posts – part 4 is all about the name of the main character starting with the same letter as the colours of the rainbow….
