TwentyTen Challenge [Challenges]

TwentyTen Reading Challenge at Bart's Bookshelf

The aim is to read a total 20 books, over ten categories, in 2010.

  • Read 2 books from each category, making a requirement of 20 books total.
  • The categories are intended to be loose guidelines only, if you decide it fits, then it fits. (Apart from those marked **)
  • Categories marked with ** have tighter rules, and these must be followed.
  • Each book can only qualify for one category.
  • Crossovers with other challenges are allowed.
  • Books read from 01/01/2010 to 31/12/2010 are eligible.
Young Adult
Any book classified as young adult or featuring a teenage protagonist counts for this category.
The Dark Divine
Hush, Hush

T.B.R. **
Intended to help reduce the old T.B.R. pile. Books for this category must be already residents of your bookshelves as of 1/11/09.
Radiant Darkness

Shiny & New
Bought a book NEW during 2010 from a bookstore, online, or a supermarket? Then it counts for this category. Second-hand books do not count for this one, but, for those on book-buying bans, books bought for you as gifts or won in a giveaway also count!
Perfect Chemistry
Guardian of the Gate

Bad Blogger’s ***
Books in this category, should be ones you’ve picked up purely on the recommendation of another blogger count for this category (any reviews you post should also link to the post that convinced you give the book ago).
The Good Girl's Guide To Getting Kidnapped by Yxta Maya Murray (Katie's Book Blog)
Never Bite A Boy on the First Date by Tamara Summers (Backchat Girl Reviews)

Support your local charity shops with this category, by picking up books from one of their shops. Again, for those on book-buying bans, books bought for you as gifts also count, as long as they were bought from a charity shop.

New in 2010
This category is for those books newly published in 2010 (whether it be the first time it is has been released, or you had to wait for it to be published in your country, it counts for this one!)
Heist Society
Only The Good Spy Young 

Older Than You
Read two books that were published before you were born, whether that be the day before or 100 years prior!
Taming of the Shrew

Win! Win!
Have a couple of books you need to read for another challenge? Then this is the category to use, as long that is, you don’t break the rules of the other challenge by doing so!
Point of Impact
If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Who Are You Again?
This one isn’t just for authors you’ve never read before, this is for those authors you have never even heard of before!
The Life of Glass By Jillian Cantor
Arson by Estevan Vega

Up to You! (MANGA)
I choose the Manga genre for this one.
Battle Royale Vol. 1
Battle Royale Vol. 2

My apologies to Bart for being an idiot and posting the wrong link the first time I signed up for the challenge. I don't know what I was doing/thinking. SORRY!

As I complete the books in these categories, I will add them here and link to applicable reviews when posted. Red means read. Blue means planned.

Wow I can't believe people are involved in my than one challenge - even one is scary for me. I'm glad you chose to read and manga too :) Good luck and thanks for the comment you left me! Hopefully I can buy the books I don't have during 2010, or perhaps I'll win a contest. Rampant sounds okay, I've just never heard of it before. I'll cheer you on too :)

Luckily a few of my books overlap, otherwise I don't know if I could do more than one! Thank YOU for stopping by :o)
