Once Upon A Time: 2010 Reading Challenge

This challenge is quite simple..... read the fairy tales you grew up reading but from another view than Disney's version. There are so many great fairy tale books out there, that might take the same story we know but with an added twist.

These books can be Young Adult, Romance, Erotic, e-books, audio books.... your only limited by your own imagination.

I am going to make this an easy challenge to finish, and say the goal is to read at least 5 books, again if you want to go big or go home... read more!

The time frame for this challenge will be January 1, 2010- December 31, 2010. Plenty of time. Please do not start this challenge before the time, and don't use books you have already read.

  1. Cindy Ella- Robin Palmer
  2. Geek Charming- Robin Palmer
  3. Awakened by a Kiss- Lila DiPasqua
  4. Highlander Untamed- Monica McCarty

( I did a search via google to see if another reading challenge like this was going on, and I found challenges similar but they took place in 2007 or 2008. I do not wish to step on toes so if you are already hosting something like this, please email me privately.)

Until next time...
Happy Reading!

Are we supposed to write a review for each book we read and post?
This may sound dumb, but I haven't done this before. :-)

Ah...what fun! I've decided to join in. With LOTS of books. But fairy tales ARE my favorite genre, basically. I can't wait to see what everyone else reads, too. Great stuff!
