2013 Genre Variety Reading Challenge

This challenge was created by A Daydreamer's Thoughts. So if you were interested in signing up you can head on over there.

I've read a lot of young adult over the past few months and I am starting to get a little tired of it - I always read the same kind of books, and although I love them all to pieces it's starting to get a little boring and I need a little bit of variety and to broaden my book horizon. There are some genres that I have never even attempted to read because I thought I most definitely wouldn't like anything to do with it. So here I am giving it a go.

The challenge is to read books from different genres throughout the year. I have found that blogging has opened my eyes to so many genres that I would never have tried before, simply from recommendations, and the idea of this challenge is to keep that going. The challenge is to read a large variety of genres within one year.
