Eclectic Reader Challenge 2014

After the enjoyment of doing last year’s Eclectic Reader Challenge twice, I am really looking forward to this years challenge. This year the categories are going to take me more out of my reading comfort zone, I think but that can only be a good thing. eclecticchallenge2014_300

The challenge is hosted by Shellley Rae@ Book’d Out. The idea is to read a book for each category and then post a review for each one.

Here is what I intend to read in each category.

  1. Award Winning – Anita Desai – The Inheritance of Loss
  2. True Crime (Non Fiction) – Ann Rule – The Stranger Beside Me
  3. Romantic Comedy – David Nicholls – Starter for Ten
  4. Alternate History Fiction – Jasper Fforde – The Eyre Affair
  5. Graphic Novel – The Sandman Vol 1: Preludes and Nocturnes
  6. Cosy Mystery Fiction – Dorothy L. Sayers – Five Red Herrings
  7. Gothic Fiction – Daphne Du Maurier – Rebecca
  8. War/Military Fiction – John Boyne – The Absolutist
  9. Anthology – Irvine Welsh – If you liked school, you’ll love work
  10. Medical Thriller Fiction – Patricia Cornwell – Post Mortem
  11. Travel (Non Fiction) – Travels in the Congo – Andre Gide
