In this challenge, the goal of the Eclectic Reader Challenge is to read books that might be out of our usual genres, to go outside our comfort zones.  To do that, we have to read a book from each of the following 12 categories.  If a book meets more than one category, it can only count for one.  As I choose, and complete, my books, I will list them with their category.  Join the challenge and see the complete rules here!

Possible reads…

  1. Retellings:  Rumpelstiltskin’s Daughter by Breeana Puttroff
