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; OR read 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
- the challenge will run from January 1st through December 31st, 2010.
I so so so so so loved the “Betsy-Books” (The Undead Series by MaryJanice Davidson) and so I HAD to join this Challenge. I’m so looking forward to that. I am aiming for level four (yes, I think that I am crazy myself). I’m not totally sure yet, what series I am going to pick.
One option would be rereading the Betsy Books and the last two or so I am still missing and desperately want to read.
Another Series I plan to read is the Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire series (aka Sookie Stackhouse series). I already saw this one at a bookstore some time ago and thought about buying but didn’t do it in the end, so I might get me the books now.
The third Series I’m not totally sure yet. Maybe the Twilight Series or LJ Smith’s Vampire Diaries but that’s still undecided.
Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer:
- Bis(s) zum Morgengrauen (Twilight)
