My Potential Vampire Challenge List

For the 2011 Vampire Challenge I have selected some potential books that I might be sampling this year. Do you want to know what I just might be reading. I say might because I am a very fickle being, almost ADD at some points. I get distracted by shiny pretty covers and set aside books that don't grab my attention from the get-go, therefor there is no guarantee in the universe that I call home.

You, too my friend can join the vampire challenge! Just click here.

This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, Book 5)#1 - This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, #5) by  Jeaniene Frost
Releases March 2011

#2 Shadowfever (Fever, #5) by Karen Marie Moning
Releases January 2011 - depending on what Barrons turns out to be will determine whether this book is available to be counted for this challenge. There are rumors that he might be a vampire, but personally I'm not a strong proponent of this particular theory.

Rachel said...

Sounds like a good list for 2011 so far.

Taking it One Book at a Time said...

The Turning (Book #1), The Blood Ties Series by Jennifer Armintrout, is great. Could be a great addition, though I know there's already one Jennifer Armintrout book on here. Or perhaps on of the Love at Stake books by Kerrelyn Sparks? Just ideas :)

Mariya said...

Wow. It looks like I'll have to look through this list and check out some of them. Looks like a lor of them I haven't read....and I know about Spirit Bound. I hadn't read it til just last week...

really? some people r debating Barrons being a vampire? First I heard that..I have heard a lot of theories of him possibly being the Selie King or something like that but I am dying to ound out wht he is...from book 1 that has been on my mind =D

Missie said...


No! Barrons is not a vampire. He is the beast. Well, I'm not 100% on this at all, but I subscribe to the KMM newsletter and there was a teaser that said something about Barrons and the beast.

*bites nails*

Do you want the teaser? I still have it saved.

Mariya said...

yea. Barrons is no vampire. Oh, god. I want Shadowfever so bad =D

ParaJunkee said...

Missie & Mariya - I don't think he is either, but there have been a few people that think he is. I'm so scared that he is the Beast. So scared. But, I'm pretty certain he might be --- but then why wouldn't the other dude, name escapes me right now, but the one that fell off the cliff, why wouldn't he have known that??? Personally I have a theory, who I think it might really turn out to be, but it's odd

Must Love Books said...

Nice list! I have either read most of these, own them, or have them on my TBR list. Awesome.

Missie said...

I want to hear that theory. JS

Catherine said...

That is an awesome list so far! Esp book number 1, 4, 9, and 10!!!

I haven't really thought about which 20 books I'll read I'll just find em as I go, but def. will read 1, 4, 10 :D

I've started my list on my blog as well. Two questions.

How did you feel about I am Legend? I was surprised at how different it was from the movie. (I read it right after the movies release)

How did you like Dead Witch Walking? I tried to read it and had a god awful time. I gave it a terrible review and put it down half way. I've never, not- finished a book before. I kept feeling like nothing was being explained though I was enticed by the world and did really enjoy Ivy. I'm wondering if I should give it another go.


Don't forget the new series by Kailin Gow about vampires Pulse, Life's Blood and Blood Burned. It's about a girl who doesn't know her ex boyfriend is a vampire until the night he dies in a freak accident. Then his half brothers visit her and apparently, like most vampires, they are very hunky. I think there are two more in the series that will be out this year.

Still on the fence
I'm in so many challenges already


I'm debating on this one. I've joined so many this year. Wondering if any of the 2011 debut authors have shifters or vamps. Kailin Gow has a great series on vampires for YA first book starts with a girl having to face to brothers that are vampire brothers of her ex boyfriend who was a vampire and killed in a freak accident. She had no idea he was a vampire until he was killed.

Does manga count? if so, Rosario and Vampire, Vampire Knight and Chibi Vampire would all be good...

Barb Hendee's "The Noble Dead" Series is Amazing! I love this series and hightly recommend it! The first 6 books at least, after that it kinda changes paths. The first one is called "Dhampir"
