Jenn is hosting the Vampire Series Challenge. She writes:
Well, since I’m becoming quite the fan of “vampire fiction”, I’ve decided to come up with my own reading challenge for the genre.
Yes, I’m aware that 2009 had a “Vampire Challenge“, hosted by Kathrin at Secret Dreamworld of a Bookaholic. But, this one is a tad bit different…
For this challenge you will read according to your preferred level of participation. Choose ONE (1) of the following 4 levels:
Level One: Vampire Newbie ~ read Book 1 of three (3) different vampire series (for a list of series’ featuring vampires, see my All In Order blog, or check out Kathrin’s list here –but note that some of the ones she mentions may not be series books). So, for example, you could read: “Twilight” by Stephenie Meyer (book 1 in the “Twilight” series), “Evermore” by Alyson Noel (book 1 of the “Immortals” series), and “City of Bones” by Cassandra Clare (book 1 of the “Mortal Instruments” series). NO re-reads allowed
for this level, as you’re supposed to be introducing yourself to new vampire series.
Level Two: Vampire Addict ~ Choose either to: reread 2 vampire series books you’ve already read; ORread 2 more books from a vampire series that you’ve already started reading. For example: if you’ve already read books 1 & 2 of the “Twilight” series, now go and read books 3 & 4. OR, if you’ve already read the whole “House of Night” series by P.C. Cast, go back and read 2 of the books from that series.
Level Three: Vampire Enthusiast ~ Read 6 books from any series featuring vampires as key/main characters. This can be a mix of different series, or you can read all 6 books from one series, or whatever.
Level Four: Vampire Lover ~ If you’re really feeling crazy about vampires, this is the level for you! Read 3 full series featuring vampires as key/main characters. Example: The whole “House of Night” series, the whole “Twilight” series, the whole “Vampire Academy” series, or whatever. Totally up to you. And, I don’t care if you’re re-reading them. So long as you read the whole series.
- rereads are allowed, EXCEPT for Level One (Vampire Newbie).
- ebooks & audiobooks are allowed
