Bram Stoker Award Reading Challenge

June 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014

On Saturday May 10, 2014 the Horror Writers Association awarded the 2013 Bram Stoker Awards®. With over 50 nominees spanning across 11 categories, HWA members diligently chose one winner from each category. After reviewing the complete list of nominees and adding titles to my ever-growing list of Books To Read, I've decided to host my first reading challenge!

Challenge Levels:

  2-4 Books:  Afraid Of The Dark

5-8 Books:  Sleeping With The Light On

  9 or more Books:  Terrorized Insomniac


  • Post your plan to participate in this challenge on your blog using the above graphic. Include a link to your post in the linky sign-up below.  If you do not have a blog, use your GoodReads profile link and be sure to create a bookshelf for this challenge.  Please note, you do not have to choose your books now.  Last day to sign-up will be JUNE 18TH.
  • During the challenge, you must choose books from the list of nominees (not just the winners) for the 2013 Bram Stoker Awards®.  CLICK HERE for a complete list.  Audiobooks are acceptable as well for this challenge and your choices may cross over to other challenges you're participating in.
  • Each month of the challenge, beginning with June, I will post a link up for your reviews and upon the close of the challenge, I'll have a separate link up for wrap-up posts as well.
  • During the challenge I'll also host special events such as Twitter Chats, Read-a-longs, Giveaways, and perhaps a Read-a-thon as well.  Be sure to follow my blog and watch for monthly announcements!
  • When I post the final wrap up linky, I'll be including a list of prizes for randomly chosen participants. 

Please be sure to share this challenge on Twitter and Facebook...the more the scarier!
