Vampire Challenge 2011 { Sign Up Post }

The Vampire Challenge 2011

This is the official sign-up post for the Parajunkee's View Vampire Challenge 2011. If ya'll haven't noticed I have a little thing for vampires. What? You didn't know that? Well, I do. A smidge of a vampire obsession. Just a smidge. So, this years reading challenge...Vampires. Please join in, vampires are not out...never!!!


THE RULES:

  1. Post about this challenge on your blog stating that you are participating. That post is the link that you will include in the Mr. Linky below. The link should be the post link not just your blog link.
  2. Grab the button and display it in the post (use grab code underneath the button) or on your sidebar so others can join in the fun.
  3. Challenge goes from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011
  4. The challenge is to read 20 books that have a vampire as a main character, either protag or antagonist
  5. Post your reviews on the Review Post: http://www.parajunkee.com/2011/01/vampire-challenge-review-link-up.html






FAQs

Q:  Can I read more than 20?
A: You can read as many as you want.

Q: Do I have to have a blog?
A: No, you don't have to. If you would like to sign up using an online profile go ahead and do that, just post in the comments section the books you've read.

Q: Do I have to know what books I'm going to read ahead of time?
A: No you do not. Pick them as you go, or have them all mapped out, it is up to you.

Q: Do I have to stick to a particular genre?
A: Nope, as long as it has a vampire as a main character.

Q: If the book is about werewolves, but their is a vampire in it does that count?
A: The vampire needs to be a main character. If there is a slight reference to a vampire in the novel that doesn't count.

Q: Can I join up whenever I feel like it?
A: If you thought you could do it, you could join up in December 2011...no restrictions

Q: Will their be monetary compensation for those that complete the challenge.
A: Nope, just the undeniable glory of having completed a vampiric milestone.

I'm a bit obsessed with vamps myself, so I'm in.

Thanks for hosting.

Moonlight Gleam said...

I'll definitely be joining in on the fun! Right after my finals are done I'll make a post for this and add my link to the list :)

Thank you for hosting PJ!

My hands automatically clicked on the linky and signed me up. I simply HAVE to do this challenge. ^___^

ParaJunkee said...

Hey guys, just read the directions first!

Alisha (MyNeedToRead) said...

Oh dear. o.O Many apologies. Directive number ONE and I flubbed it. Any way to edit a linky entry?

If not, then my blog's announcement of the challenge is HERE.

Carmel @ Rabid Reads said...

GREYZ said...

This is the perfect challenge for me. Obsessed! And I have to say that I super love the official poster/picture that you used. :)) pretty.

apageturner4u said...

I'm in! Thanks for hosting it! I am a "lil" (HA) vampire crazy myself. hehehe

Mariya said...

I am in! I have a crazy vampire obsession. Hopefully I can find lots of Vamp books I haven't yet read. =D

aobibliophile™ said...

hi Parajunkee! as i mentioned before, i've always been a sucker (pardon the pun) for vampire stories. this is also a cool way to see what my buddy bloggers are sinking their teeth into. thanks for coming up with this one! c",)

Nicole Sheldon said...

I'm glad you started this. I've noticed Vamps are on the out lately and I have no idea why. They were my first love and always will be my favorite supernatural creature. Way to bring back the love for vamps!

Tea and Tomes said...

Now this is my kind of challenge! Count me in!

tandra88 said...

It's about time somebody stared a challenge like this!

Laurie said...

Great Challenge!! Count me in, too. Thanks for hosting!

Misty said...

That is a GORGEOUS button! Doubt I'll read 20, but I'm going to join if only to display that button!

Cindy said...

I'm diving in feet first...I absolutely love this challenge...Vamps are in my BLOOD!

Mare/TommyGirl said...

This sounds like so much fun! And hopefully I'll find even more vampire-centric stories out there.

BURIED IN BOOKS said...

This will be fun! I've already got quite a few books picked out. Just wishing you'd reviewed more of them so I could see if they were worth reading!

Happy Reading everyone!

Rasberryswrlgirl said...

I'm excited about this challenge! Thanks for hosting.

BURIED IN BOOKS said...

You can delete the question about the Morganville Vampires. I see glass houses on the montage. Duhh!

Christina said...

I'm a little late joining in but would love to join. I won't get my blog post done until tomorrow then I will officially join using Mr Linky. I am so far behind on my vampire reads that this will be a great way to catch up. Just started First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost tonight too which works out perfectly!

Celine said...

Great challenge. I'm joining both this one and the werewolf one, I like them both! (:

Barbara said...

I might have a little thing for vampires too but just a little one. Might join up. I have a trip to the library planned for tomorrow and I'm sure vampires will be among those books. I just might join up and one book would be read although I'm not sure if that would count or not. Well it was a reread that I did read this year.

Must shut up now since my stupid finger hurts and I need to rest my brain. First I probably need to find it.

meggerfly said...

Love this challenge! I'll be joining you guys but I don't blog.
So far I've read...
Halfway To The Grave by Jeaniene Frost
One Foot In The Grave by Jeaniene Frost
The Morganville Vampires-The Glass House by Rachel
Caine
Be Still My Vampire Heart by Kerrelyn Sparks

If anyone wants to review my book, "Outcast of the Dream World," for the Vampire Challenge, I'll send you a paperback copy! You can email me at sandra_chandler@yahoo.com.

andi said...

Ah, vampires, creatures of the night, the undead, er, underdead...well crap. Too many authors change the rules of vamps. Some have heartbeats, others not so much. Well. I frankly don't care! I'm all about the vamp luvin' however the auths chose to write them! Count me in! Mr. Linky is evading me, hopefully this counts as my sign up!

Kristin Aragon said...

So it's August and I am going to join this contest. I have few doubts that I will be unable to complete this contest as I read about a book a day.

Can't seem to find Mr. Linky so here is my link

Question! Does a series of vampire-themed books count? For example, Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy Series.
