Vampire Challenge {Review Link Up}

If you are participating in the Vampire Challenge 2011 this is where you will link up each one of your book reviews, or let us know a book that you've read in the comments (if you do not have a blog). Want to discuss a book, rant, rave? Use the comments section.

This is not the sign up post. You can sign up for the challenge by clicking here: >> Sign Up for the Challenge

Upon seeing how the links are going up, I realize it might be more organized if you put BOOK NAME, Blog as the title for the linky. 

For example, if I reviewed Dead and Gone, it would read Dead and Gone, Parajunkee or any variation of such.

It's been so fun looking for new to me vampire books and sorting out my list! I'm all posted up for the challenge and ready to rock. Already working down it!

ParaJunkee said...

Hey guys. This is the post to put your reviews up that go along with the challenge. The post to sign up for this challenge is in the post above, or click on the images in the sidebar.

Mariya said...

I hope I did it correct. =D

Mariya said...

@Parajunkee: is my blog name too long to put up? or is it okaiexz like that??

ParaJunkee said...

@Mariya - it should work! I lowered the text size, no biggie.

ParaJunkee said...

Bloodlist was great. Awesome 'different' kind of series if you guys are interested in mystery type genres.

Carmel @ Rabid Reads said...

Seems like the only books I've been reading lately have been vampire ones. Just added three reviews. Time to get started on the Shifter Challenge!

Chapter Chicks said...

Oh my gosh, idk if you guys have read The Morganville Vampire series yet, but you really should. I adored it. First two vamp books of the year!

Thanks for hosting this awesome challenge!

BURIED IN BOOKS said...

I already listed the Morganville Vampires down here, but I thought I'd do it proper so I put it up above.

Heather

BURIED IN BOOKS said...

I didn't want to put the name there in case someone is reading the book or wants to read it and doesn't want it spoiled for them. You only learn the truth about halfway through the novel. But it's actually obvious early on. So, if you click on the link, you're gonna know.

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Finally started the Sabina Kane series. It was great. Hope you guys like the review. I really need to check some of those out, I haven't heard of some of those :)

Jennifer aka The Book Nympho said...

Got to love those vamps. I'm in.

FYI ~ I had a blonde moment and linked myself twice under Jennifer and then under The Book Nympho.

ultimategothguide said...

Just finished Stake That! from the Blood Coven series ^^

Beverly said...

Thanks!

Offbeat Vagabond said...

The Vampire Relationship Guide: Meeting and Mating by Evelyn Lafont was lots of fun. Can't wait to see more from her :)

Tristan said...

Haven review is up in the linky thing

Ramblings of a Part time Druid said...

I have added myself into the linky.. cant wait to get started.

aobibliophile™ said...

hi Parajunkee! glad to note that there's a linky now. thank you very much. added my latest to the list. 14 more to go lol. c",)

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Finished This Side of The Grave. Great addition to the series. Just want more Ian :)

ultimategothguide said...

Latest review is added to the linky - Interview with the Vampire ^^

aobibliophile™ said...

added my latest fanged review to the linky - An American Vampire by Jennifer Armintrout c",)

Tristan said...

read Kiss Of Death and Ghost Town of The Morganville Vamps 8 down WOOT!

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Finished Etched in Bone, YAY! What a great addition to one of my favorite series. Up next should be Lover Unleashed and after that Glass Houses. Finally started the Morganville Vampire series. I definitely see why it is so popular. Really great stuff :)

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Just added Lover Unleashed, so a great book. Really love Manny and Payne together. Can't wait for Envy (Del Vecchio's book). Definitely want more of him, seems like he will be a very interesting character.

ultimategothguide said...

Just read Shadow of the Vampire... it's a Mills & Boon novel, which I thought was beyond odd.

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Yeah, finished Glass Houses! Really liking The Morganville Vampires so far. Can't wait for book 2.

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Just added Ascension by Sable Grace. Easily going on my favorites lists and probably one of my top books for 2011. Yeah, I loved it that much :)

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Added Blood Destiny by Tessa Dawn. One of the best books I have read. Can't wait for book 2, October can't get here quick enough :)

ultimategothguide said...

Just linked Midnight's Daughter by Karen Chance - personally I preferred the Cassandra Palmer series, but a good read nonetheless ^^

Jennifer@The Book Nympho said...

Just added Eternal Hearts by Jennifer Turner to the list. Great book. It's the 2nd in the Darkness Within series. I can't wait for the 3rd to be released. If you like the review I'm having an interview and giveaway with Ms. Turner on June 8th.

Gen L. said...

This will be easy-peasy. I love Vampires!!!

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Just added Dead Reckoning (Sookie Stackhouse #11) by Charlaine Harris. Better than the last one, but definitely not a favorite. 3 out of 5 stars.

aobibliophile™ said...

added A Vampire's Salvation - a Beyond Human novella by Virna DePaul. c",)

Darlene said...

Hi, everyone! I just finished the Twilight series and linked up my reviews. I am having trouble deciding which series to start on next: Sookie Stackhouse or Black Dagger Brotherhood? Any suggestions which one to start with?

ParaJunkee said...

Darlene - matter of taste. If you are in a lighter mood, go for the Sookie series. Darker urban mood go for the BDB series. Both are excellent.

Jenn said...

Adding what I've got so far in 2011, still tons to go, but I've started.

Jenn said...

Apparently I'm supposed to comment every time I add a book so I'm doing so, this challenge is really cool.

Jenn said...

I felt City of Fallen Angels fit because it's mainly about Simon the Daylighter Vampire.

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Added Narcissus in Chains (Anita Blake #10). I loved it. I know what people have said, but man, I just don't see it. I have read bad books and that just wasn't one of them. It was great. Also added The Dead Girls' Dance a week ago. Couldn't post (blogger crashed :( ) Loved that as well, liked it more than book 1. Already finished Midnight Alley (book 3), review coming tomorrow :)

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Finally added Midnight Alley, my tomorrow took 5 days LOL! But in my defense I have been reading book 4 of the series, so it is a good excuse. Really loving this series. So awesome :)

Jenn said...

End of Mae is by a new indie author, pretty decent story, on the short side though. You don't realize you're reading a vamp book until close to the end even though one of the main characters is in fact a vamp

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Added Feast of Fools (book 4 in the Morganville Vampires series). Loved it. I want more Myrnin!

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Lord of Misrule (book 5 of the Morganville Vampires series) just added. Myrnin, I love you, but how could you?!

aobibliophile™ said...

just added my 9th post for the challenge! happy 4th of July to you and yours! c",)

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Added Fresh Blood by Jennifer Colgan. Really good paranormal romance and it was free. Can't beat that :)

Jenn of Frequent Reader, Infrequent Blogger said...

Coming back to update since I fell behind with linking up here.

Jenn of Frequent Reader, Infrequent Blogger said...

Figured I should note the some of my earlier links might not work now because I added a .com to make my blog easier to find.

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Added Carpe Corpus, book 6 in the Morganville Vampires series. Really loving this and almost done with Fade Out. Woohoo!

Offbeat Vagabond said...

Book 7 in the Morganville Vampire series, Fade Out. Another one I love. Can someone send my the vampire bunny slippers? Please! LOL! Another great read :)

Nina @ Death Books and Tea said...

Accidentally linked one of my reviews twice...sorry...Came back to update since I've been reading without linking...love this challenge-a great excuse for me to read more vampire books...

aobibliophile™ said...

my 10th post for the challenge is up! have a good one! c",)

andi said...

Just added my first book to the list (Outcast)though I have a ton left to add that I've finished earlier this year! So...I'll be back...(cue cheesy sunglasses and big guns)

~andi novelista

andi said...

Halfway to the Grave review posted! One more to go for the night!

~andi novelista

andi said...

Dead, Undead or Somewhere in Between and Halfway to the Grave have been added...if you haven't read J.A. Saare or Jeaniene Frost (gasp) be gone with you. Run to B&N or Borders (before they close completely) and grab a copy or buy online for Kindle or Nook...just do it! (no pressure)

~andi novelista

aobibliophile™ said...

added my 11th post for the challenge. c",)

Diana (@Offbeat Vagabond) said...

Woohoo! This is my 20th entry! Added Blood Awakening (The Blood Curse #2) by Tessa Dawn. It was amazing! Still violent, but I loved every minute of it. Ok I am going to stop because I won't stop talking about this LOL!

aobibliophile™ said...

posted my 12th for the challenge! c",)

Diana (@Offbeat Vagabond) said...

Just added three books; Blood Law by Jeannie Holmes, Lord of the Vampires by Gena Showalter and A Touch of Crimson by Sylvia Day. Really enjoyed them, Lord of the Vampires was good, but not my favorite from Showalter. But it was hot, so that is something LOL!

Diana (@Offbeat Vagabond) said...

Just added Immortalis Carpe Noctem (Immortalis #1) by Katie Salidas. Really good book. Was a little bit predictable, but I am definitely looking for more of this series. Fun read :)
