Pick Your Poison Reading Challenge

This one sounds like a lot of fun so  I'm going to give it a go. I'm picking "Nightshade" level-4 books in each category.  My four sub genres are:

1-Sci Fi or Fantasy books set in one of the past time periods-maybe Steampunk, but maybe set in another time period.

2-Traditional Regency Romances with Supernatural/ Paranormal element to it.
    1-DONE-The Ruby Ghost by June Calvin-2.5 stars
    2-DONE-The Would-be Witch by Rita Boucher-4.0 stars
    3-DONE-Lord Of Illusions by Rita Boucher-4.0 stars

3-Books with "headless" cover art-either all or part of the head is cut off the cover.
  1-DONE-Courting Trouble by Deeanne Gist-4 stars
  2-DONE-A Wallflower Christmas by Lisa Kleypas-3 stars
  3-DONE-A Countess by Christmas by Annie Burrows-4.5 stars

4-Romance books where either the hero or heroine is a scientist

This challenge was created with the encouragement of TheCoolMom and Guitarzan, to create my own when I couldn't find a reading challenge for some of my kookier sub-genre. So here is to you steampunk loving readers, the cat mystery readers or the supernatural warfare novel enthusiasts. In this you get to create your own challenge by deciding if you want to read books only about Dragons or if you want to read those obscure fantasy books you were looking at. Mix and match to make your perfect combo. You can have Steampunk and obscure fantasy or even Serial Killer mysteries, Historical Romance, the point is you get to choose.

There are four levels of Pick Your Poison:

Hemlock- You read 1 book of each of your categories

Nightshade- 4 books of each of your categories 

Foxglove- 6 books of each of your categories

Monkshood- 12+ books in each of your categories

Challenge begins January 1, 2011 and lasts until December 31, 2011. You can join at anytime you want.  When you sign up under Mr. Linky, put the direct link to your post about the Pick Your Poison Reading Challenge. Include the URL so that other participants can join in. You can list your books in advance and if you list them, feel free to change them as the mood takes you. Sorry that I didn't have a button or anything for you to post as a picture, I may be able to get one up later.
 If you do not have a blog, comment with what level and what your category is. 

Have fun readers!!!
