Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge 2010

I've decided to sign up for a second challenge, next to the Erotica Romance Reading Challenge that I already joined. My fellow countrygirl Pearl is hosting the Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge 2010! I think it's a good alternation with the Erotica Challenge for me and I have a bunch of Blazes and other contemporary romances on my (digital) shelf! So this will be a perfect opportunity to make my TBR pile shrink a bit...

Here's what Pearl has to tell about her challenge:
Pearl’s Contemporary Romance Reading Challenge

Before I list the details, I do want to make one thing clear: by contemporary romance I mean straight contemporary, so without paranormal, fantasy or time-travel elements. Sexy, steamy contemporaries are eligible and so are category romances. (i.e. Harlequin Blaze, Harlequin Presents, Harlequin Super Romances, Silhoutte Desires, etc.)

1. Read at least 10 contemporaries between January 1, 2010 and December 31, 2010

2. You don't have to pre-select your books, you can just add them as you go. Even if you list them now, you can change the list if needed. Nothing is set in stone! Also, the books you choose can crossover into or from other challenges you are participating in.

3. Feel free to grab the button below for the sidebar of your blog. It would be great if you would link it back to this post so others can find their way back to this post and join the challenge.

4. If you decide to join this challenge be sure to create a post telling others and feel free to add a link back to this post so others can join in the fun.

5. I will be creating review posts where you can link your own reviews, but reviews are optional.

My list:

1. Hard To Hold (Hold trilogy, #1) by Stephanie Tyler, Finished, 3 stars
2. Racing Hearts (A Calculated Risk\An Outside Chance\This Time Around) by Vicki Lewis Thompson, Nancy Warren, Dorien Kelly, Finished, 2.5-3 stars
3. Magnus by Jambrea Jo Jones, Finished, 3 stars
4. Issue of Trust by Lorie O'Clare, Finished, 3.5 stars
5. Tempted by Megan Hart, Finished, 3.5 stars
6. Raising Kane by Lorelei James, Finished, 4 stars
7. Bad Moon Rising by Leeanne Kenedy, Finished, 3.5 stars
8. Corralled by Lorelei James, Finished, 4 stars
9. Beyond Eden by Kele Moon, Finished, 4.5 stars
10. L.A. Caveman by Christina Crooks, Finished, 3.5 stars


10 / 10 books. 100% done! COMPLETED!
