Vampire Challenge

While I was thinking about challenges, I came up not only with the Pages Read Challenge, but also with 5 (!!!) other challenges. And for some really, really crazy reason, I've decided to try to pull them all off for 2009!

So this one is the Vampire Challenge (stupid name, I know!). And I hope that with 3 one-word questions, I can answer most of the questions.

For the Vampire Challenge you will read books with vampires - romance, YA, paranormal, mysteries - anything, as long as there's a or two (or more) vampire in it.

The challenge will start January 1, 2009 and end December 31, 2009.

The goal is to read 2+ books with vampires in 2009, that's it. It's fairly easy, I think. For some inspiration check out my post on vampires in books.

To sign up, please leave a comment here with a link to your blog post.

My now finished list:
1) MaryJanice Davidson: Undead and Unappreciated
2) Yuna Kagesaki: Cheeky Vampire Vol. 7-8
3) Rachel Caine: Glass Houses

  1. I will be in on this - I will commit to two - but no doubt will read more as I have more than two in my TBR pile

    I have put up a post in my challenge blog:

  2. @ Sally: Glad you'll join me! I might also have more on Mt. TBR, but who knows with that monster? I'll just see what I can read in 2009.

  3. Will be doing this one anyway too and 2 at least should be fun. Thanks.

  4. I'm in. Having finished the Twilight series I now have to find a new set of Vampire books to check out. I'm thinking the "True Blood" series might be good.

    Open to suggestions.

  5. I would like to try this one, I found so many things I didnt' think I would like last year and I did enjoy. Lindy

  6. I'm in:

  7. Sounds interesting. After the Twilight Series who can resist a good vampire book. I am looking for suggestions because this is a relatively new genre for me. I have read the Charlaine Harris books and love them. Count me in.

  8. Any chance that I could join in. I have two vampire books sitting in my pile. My two are by Karen Chance. I loved the Twilight series, so happy to do this. I will commit to 2,but know I will do more as there is another one in the series.

  9. Newcomers are always welcome! Just leave a link so that I know where to link to, yes?
