Romance Roundabout Challenge

The Rules
From each of the sub genres we have listed below, we want you to read the number of books in the level you want to sign up for. BUT don’t let us limit you! If you can think of any other sub genres you want to read/have read then add it to your challenge (not replace a sub-genre and not to be confused with “tropes”), our goal is to explore as much of the romance genre as we can and venture out a bit outside of it as well! There’s no stipulation on how old or new the release has to be so feel free to clear your TBR, include brand new 2018 releases, or a nice mix of both!  The only thing we don’t count are re-reads.
SUB-GENRES

» Paranormal Romance
» Urban Fantasy
» Young Adult (fantasy or contemporary both qualify)

» Historical Romance
