2014 Literary Exploration Reading Challenge - Finished

2014 Literary Exploration Reading Challenge hosted by the Literary Exploration Group on Goodreads.

Interesting in becoming a Literary Explorer too? In 2014 Literary Exploration is once again challenging you to try out new genres; with a 12 book, 24 book and 36 book challenge. We give you a list of genres and anyone participating in the challenge has to complete one book from each genre over the course of the year.

I have completed the Insane Challenge and read a book from 36 different genres. Like in 2013 I did struggle with some of the genres but I didn't feel it as bad as last year. But I have decided not to take part again as I have now completed it twice and I would rather take part in new challenges.
