Hey everyone! I'm back! 

I missed blogging so I switched platforms and will slowly be reformatting my posts from 2016 and part of 2017 so they will show correctly here. It's so nice to be back and I'm setting up so many lovely Blogging/Reading/Reviewing challenges this year!
Let me know which ones you are participating in this year!

They are hosting it on Goodreads though.
I'm aiming for:



We'll see if I can do more, some of these sub-genres I'm just not that into...here's looking at you SciFi, Steampunk and Fantasy.


SUB-GENRES:

» Paranormal Romance: the newest J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood and Sherrilyn Kenyon Dark Hunters books. 
» Urban Fantasy: Nalini Singh's Guild Hunters, as I haven't read those yet ;)
» Young Adult (fantasy or contemporary both qualify): Chronicles of Nick
» New Adult: Sarina Bowen's NA Hockey Series
» Erotic Romance: Roni Loren's Loving on the Edge, since I got to meet her and have signed copies!
» Sci Fi (can be romance or straight sci fi): Lauren Dane’s Phantom Corps Or does S.K.'s League Series count?
» Historical Romance: Umm... I'm an avid HR reader this will be easy 
» Steampunk: Meljean Brooks' Iron Seas, not sure of any others, we'll see.
» Contemporary Romance: Same as HR, avid reader. 
» Romantic Suspense: I need to find some I haven't yet read...:)
» LGBT Romance: Rock N Soul by Lauren Sattersby, My January Book Club read.
» Fantasy (not to be confused with paranormal romance!): Belador by S.K. and Dianna Love
» Mystery (not romance focused, can be cozy mystery or thrillers) Brenda Novak's thrillers.


Audiobook Challenge 2018
Hosted by: Melanie, Hot Listens and Kimberly, Caffeinated Reviewer.

I need to take advantage of the Audible Romance Package! I have a GR Shelf with 80 books so I'm going for Marathoner (Look Ma No Hands) 50 +


I'll be updating my goals here and tagging them when I review! Please tell me what reading/blogging goals you have in the coming year! If you have any recommendations for SciFi, Steampunk and Fantasy, for the Romance Roundabout, I'd be grateful if you share them with me!
