- Any format is fine.
- Re-reads count!
- You pick the number of books above that you'd like to read with a 12 book minimum.

MY CHALLENGE GOALS: I want to read 80 historical romances, 25 contemporary romances, and 30 paranormal romances/urban fantasies.
For my reading challenges, I always like to create a preliminary list of books that I want to complete. I usually like to look back at the end of the year and see how accurate my predictions were.
