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
4) D.D. Barrant: Dying Bites
5) MaryJanice Davidson: Undead and Unreturnable
6) P.C. Cast & Kristin Cast: Marked
The participants are:
8) Scrap girl
14) Medical Librarian
15) "Confuzzled" Shannon
16) J. Kaye
24) Ruth Schaller
25) Wesley Alison
33) The Ravenour Reader
35) Movie Maven
38) The Book Resort
ETA: I finally created a post for the challenge reviews. You can find it here!

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 pileReplyDelete
I have put up a post in my challenge blog:
@ 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.ReplyDelete
Will be doing this one anyway too and 2 at least should be fun. Thanks.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Open to suggestions.
I would like to try this one, I found so many things I didnt' think I would like last year and I did enjoy. LindyReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete

blondierocket-the true blood/sookie stackhouse series books by Charlaine Harris were pretty good. I had a hard time getting through book 1 but the rest were better.
Loved the Vampire Academy series and Vampire Diaries series (hoping to find time to reread this series this year)
