2013 Genre Variety Reading Challenge

Just found a new reading challenge about to start in January and I'm super excited about it!  This will be the third reading challenge I've participated in and it is being hosted by A Daydreamer's Thoughts. The challenge is to read a certain number of books from various genres (as if you couldn't tell from the blog title). 

The rules: 
[x]Runs from January 1st 2013 until December 31st 2013. Sign ups will be open until December 1st 2013.
[x]There are five levels to challenge yourself too. You may move up a level but not go down a level. These are all outlined below. Please mention in your sign up post which level you will aim for.
[x]The genres you choose to read are up to you. As long as every book is different, whichever genre you wish to read you can.
[x]Every month there will be a post on this blog (A Daydreamer's Thoughts) to link up to your update post / review(s)
[x]There will be a giveaway at the end of the challenge, and maybe a few within the year but these are TBD.
[x]To sign up, you will need to write a post saying which level you are challenging yourself too and then use the linky list. Non-Bloggers may post in the comments of this post.
[x]Any book formats are accepted.
[x]Novellas and Novels are all accepted for this challenge.
[x]YA, NA and Adult books all count towards this challenge.
[x]New sub-genres are accepted. (for example, paranormal-romance, or historical-romance)

The Levels:
  • Careful; 6 different genres, 6 books
  • Cautious; 12 different genres, 12 books
  • Branching; 18 different genres, 18 books
  • Avid Reader; 24 different genres, 24 books
  • Champion; 30 different genres, 30 books

I will be participating in the Cautious Level: 12 books with 12 different genres and separating them by month. These are the genres I'm going to attempt (in the order listed):

[x]Paranormal : Grace Doll by Jennifer Laurens
[x]Fantasy : Lizzy Speare and the Cursed Tomb by Ally Malinenko
[x]Romance : One Good Earl Deserves a Lover by Sarah MacLean
[x]Crime : Lest the Dew Rust Them by Michael Drakich
[x]Thriller : Faceless by Dustin Sanchez
[x]Non-Fiction : Get Me Out of Here by Rachel Reiland





As I finish each genre, I will include a review and link it to this page. Hopefully I can stay on track and accomplish my goal! If that happens, I may just have to move up a level next year! =)
