Fantasy Reading Challenge

2011 Fantasy Reading Challenge Guidelines

If you would like to participate as well hear on over here.

A) The challenge is open to everyone. If you don't have a blog, it's okay, just leave your information in the comment.

B) There are four levels:

  1. Curious – Read 3 Fantasy Fiction novels.
  2. Fascinated – Read 6 Fantasy Fiction novels.
  3. Addicted – Read 12 Fantasy Fiction novels.
  4. Obsessed – Read 20 Fantasy Fiction novels.
C) You don't have to list the books right away. It's your choice and you can always change whenever you feel want to.

D) The challenge runs from January 1 through December 31, 2011.

E) You can join anytime between now and December 31, 2011.

F) Starting on January 1st trough December 31st, 2011, you can start posting your review on my 2011 Fantasy Reading Challenge Reviews Page. But of course it must be read on 2011 only and I don't mind if you re-read.

G) If you successfully finish the challenge, according to your selected levels, write a wrap up challenge post and leave the link at the 2011 Fantasy Reading Challenge wrap up at my page. Noted: only if you finish the challenge. It will run through until December 31st, 2011.

H) And the fun part is that, on January 1st, 2012; 2 reviews from 2011 Fantasy Reading Challenge Reviews Page and 1 lucky person from the wrap up challenge post will be randomly selected to win $10 to pick a Fantasy Fiction of their choice from the Book Depository. But the trick is, the choice of the book will come from any books from the books reviewed by other participants. So, you must always link your review and wrap up post at the page to be selected.

I) If you're a blogger, you must write up a sign-up post that includes the URL to this post so that others can join in (not your blog address). Feel free to use the button above. When you sign up in the Linky, put the direct link to your 2011 Fantasy Reading Challenge post. Please put your name/nickname and blog on the subject e.g. Darlyn@Darlyn and Books. 

I'm probably setting myself up for a massive fail, joining all these challenges. But then I reason with myself that I have most of this year to read and read, and read. 

I will be doing the Obsessed level. Heres what my list is looking like at the moment - 

1. The Hobbit by J R R Tolkien
2. The Fellowship of the Ring by J R R Tolkien
3. The Two Towers by J R R Tolkien
4. The Return of the King by J R R Tolkien
5. The Final Empire (The first book in the Mistborn trilogy) by Brandon Sanderson
6.The Well of Ascension (The second book in the Mistborn trilogy) by Brandon Sanderson
7. The Hero of the Ages (The third book in the Mistborn trilogy) by Brandon Sanderson
8. The Painted Man (The first book in the Demon Cycle series) by Peter V Brett
