Sign Up: 2015 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge

2015 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge

The Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge was originally created and hosted by Pearl’s World of Romance, then was passed on to Fatin at Romance Book Maven, and is now hosted by The Book Vixen.

Reading Challenge Details:

  • Runs January 1, 2015 – December 31, 2015 (books read prior to 1/1/2015 do not count towards the challenge). You can join anytime before 9/30/2015. Sign up on The Book Vixen’s blog.
  • The goal is to read as many Contemporary Romance books as you’d like. Books that qualify for this challenge can be young adult, new adult, or adult. Books can be M/F, M/M, or F/F. Books must be a work of fiction (sorry, nonfiction does not qualify for this challenge). Romances with the following elements do not qualify for this reading challenge: paranormal, historical, time-travel, fantasy, science fiction, or mystery/suspense/thriller. See the different levels below and pick the one that works best for you. You can move up a level as often as you’d like but no moving down. Remember, the idea is to challenge yourself.
  • Books can be any format (print, ebook, audio).
  • Novellas that are 100 pages in length (give or take), as well as full-length novels, will count for this reading challenge.
  • Re-reads and crossovers from other reading challenges are allowed.
  • To join this challenge, grab the 2015 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge button below and post this reading challenge on your blog to track your progress. Please include a link back to this sign-up post so others can join the reading challenge too. You do not have to be a book blogger to participate; you can track your progress on Goodreads, LibraryThing, BookLikes, etc., so as long as you have a dedicated shelf for the 2015 Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge and your profile is not private. The point of linking up is to have a place where people can see what you’re reading.

  1. I just signed up. I hope I followed the directions correctly. If I didn't I will gladly correct it.

  2. I'm going to re-send mine because I'm not sure if it went in correctly. Let's try this again. ;)

  3. I finished yesterday, I hit #21 with Jennifer Bernard's ALL OF ME.

  4. Hi, the post states that readers can join the challenge up to 9/30/2015, however the widget is stating that it will stop taking entries at the end of this month (MAY). Could you please check this out?

    1. Thanks for letting me know! The linky only lets me set the 'end date' 33 days in advance, so I have to manually update it once a month and I forgot. All fixed now :)

  5. Ok, how do I put my GRAND SLAM in? I.Have already read over 21 contemporary romance since 1/1/15. And I can use any I have already read, right?

    1. There'll be a wrap up post a little later in the year. And yes, any book read after 1/1/2015 counts as long as it meets the criteria listed above.
