Women's #Fiction #ReadingChallenge 2015!

Thanks to our Sponsor, BookDate! Thanks!

This challenge is for those who enjoy reading women's fiction.  How might you define this type of book?  I define it as any book that is mainly written for women (although that doesn't stop men reading them),  they may contain elements of romance but the book mainly centres around the development of women or a woman throughout the book.  Women centered books, that might focus on the issues relating to women, it may be a mainstream novel, slightly less or slightly more.  This website probably best describes what I am thinking of Women Fiction Writers.  

The Romance Writers of America organization defines women's fiction as, "a commercial novel about a woman on the brink of life change and personal growth. Her journey details emotional reflection and action that transforms her and her relationships with others, and includes a hopeful/upbeat ending with regard to her romantic relationship."

Take whichever definition suits you - both of the ones linked above or write your own definition  in your challenge post and then join in.

  • Motivated 1- 5
  • Savvy     6 - 10
  • Classy    11- 20
  • Go-getter  20 -30 I am going to dedicate over 20 books to Women's Fiction.
  • Fearless  30+
Books may overlap with other challenges. Any format of book is fine.  Choose your level and write a commitment post or set aside a Goodreads shelf for this challenge, if you don't have a blog or would prefer to work that way.

There will be a link for reviews although reviews are not a condition of completing the challenge, they are just an extra: 
January to June - (
This is a place where you can link up reviews during the year - January to June.  There will be two link ups during the year.  One from January to June and the other from July to December.)

At the end of each link up there will be a $12 draw for either a Book Depository book choice or Amazon gift voucher.

Reviews are not mandatory but this is one link up where I will be really looking forward to reading the reviews.  Not that I need to add to my groaning shelves but I am a bookaholic!

There will be a final link up post at the end for those who complete their challenge. All those who complete the challenge will go into the draw for a $25 prize to be in the form of a book from the Book Depository or voucher for U.S. Amazon store.  A Gone Reading voucher is also an option. (If you have not gone to Gone Reading, the link provided in the previous sentence, it is SO worth checking out! WOW, is all I can say!)

Sign ups are open until mid October 2015
The challenge goes from 1st January 2015 to December 31st 2015
