I have just found another fabulous reading challenge!
This one is hosted by Magemanda at Floor to Ceiling Books,
and I wouldn't miss it for the world!
I love reading practically anything (except horror)
that takes me out of this boring reality anyway,
so this shouldn't be too hard!
The minimum amount of books to be read is 12.
This challenge started in January, 2011,
and will end in December, 2011.
For the rest of the rules, and to sign up,
just go HERE.
But wait a minute...
Just what is "speculative fiction", anyway?
To quote Wikipedia:
Speculative fiction is an umbrella term encompassing the more fantastical fiction genres, specifically science fiction, fantasy, horror, supernatural fiction, superhero fiction, utopian and dystopian fiction, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction, and alternate history in literature as well as related static, motion, and virtual arts.
Well, I'm out as far as the horror genre is concerned,
but I have no problem with the rest of the ones mentioned!
(You can access the complete article HERE.)
