Erotic Horizon, aren't you hosting a couple?

I said I wasn't going to overload myself with challenges again this year but I can see it happening already. I doesn't help that I'll be hosting/co-hosting SEVEN throughout the year.

Alaine, are reviews necessary? Because I I read 5 out of 7 books last year but did no reviews.

AlleluiaLu said...

I'm in! Romance is probably my favorite genre - especially time travel romance. Reading 12 books in a year should be eeeaaasssy.
Thanks for hosting!

Ashley @ Ashley's Library said...

Blodeuedd said...

Yup signed up, an excuse to get those romance books on my shelf read ;)

Marquetta said...

I can't wait to start this challenge. Romance is my favorite genre. Question - Do the series romance books count? Like Harlequin Blaze, Temptation etc?

Anesthezea said...

Are GLBT romances okay for this challenge?

Alaine - Queen of Happy Endings said...

Anesthezea, yes any genre is fine. Romance is romance!

Grilsgood said...

I am now able to read romance again after losing my husband to death. But I still prefer it with lots of mysteries to solve.

sallyfromoz said...

I think this is my last one from the 'Royal' list. But I can't go past a good romance challenge :)

Elizabeth Jules Mason (AKA "MsMoonlight") said...

Lori (sugarandgrits) said...

I'm in! This is only my 2nd challenge and I'm looking forward to it. :)

Of course, I would make a typo in my link! It should say "SOME of My Favorite Books"...sorry. :(

Good luck and Happy Reading to everyone!

This one I have not done before but since I am about to venture into Georgette Heyer land I figured this would be perfect. Thank you I am adding it to my challenges post now.

Stephanie said...

I signed up for the Addicted level in this one too. Lots of reading to do again.

Nicole, The Book Lover said...

I am so glad to have found this challenge! I am a bit of a romance addict and tend to read in this pattern; romance, non-romance, romance, non-romance because I love to read a good bodice ripper between the more serious stories.
I can't wait to see the romances everyone is reading and I can't wait to share my reading experiences!

Alaine - Queen of Happy Endings said...

Nicole, I can be a bit like that. Nothing like a reliable feel good happy ending! Good luck for the challenge, I can't wait to see all the new authors I know I'll find.

Between The Lines & More said...

I'm killing myself with challenges, but this one looks too good to pass up.

retroredux said...

Jessica said...

Better late than never, but I'm in.

Amanda-Lee said...

Hi I'm definitely entering this!!!

one quick question...does Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick count?

Alaine - Queen of Happy Endings said...

Hi Amanda-Lee, I haven't read Hush Hush so I don't know but if you think it's romance when you've read it then you can definitely count it. It's really up to you to define what books you think are romance. Good luck with the challenge!

Romance Reader @ heart said...

This sounds like a lot of fun! :)

librarypat said...

What about those of us who don't have sites and are too technically challenged to do the Mr. Linkey thing? How else can I keep track? 've just finished my third romance this year.

Alaine - Queen of Happy Endings said...

Librarypat, you can tell us the name of author and the number of books you've read in the comments!

The Clumsy Reader said...

Hey, I have entered almost all your challenges and then a thought just popped into my head :Can 1 book be in multiple challenges? EX: Can I put the Vampire Academy in the 'Series' challenge and the 'Romance' one too? I may have just missed you stating that but please reply soon! Thanks, & UR Blog is AwEsOmE!

Here is the link to my original post on my entry:
http://historicallyobsessed.blogspot.com/2009/12/my-reading-challenges-2010.html

Things got a bit confusing for me to keep track of so I just made a whole page dedicated to it and it has my list there:
http://historicallyobsessed.blogspot.com/p/challenges.html

So far I have down Claude and Camille by Stephanie Cowell (which I am not sure if qualifies for romance), Powder and Patch by Georgette Heyer, and Arabella by Georgette Heyer.

Love the challenges ladies and I am sorry I do not visit more, thank you for all that you do for our enjoyment.
