I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Paranormal Reading Challenge

Reading Challenge

hosted at Auntie Spinelli Reads

Sign- up here

Megan and Jessi want us to read twelve paranormal books this year. Sound too easy? You're right, there is a catch. And a drawing. There's a list to choose from (Angels to Zombies) and a monthly featured paranormal. If you review, and link, your book you get a chance in the drawing. If it is the featured paranormal you get two.

There's lots more info on the sign up page but here are the basic guidelines:
  1. This challenge runs from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013.
  2. You must have a blog to able to participate, since reviews must be added to the linky.
  3. When you sign up with the linky, please put the link to your post about joining the Paranormal Reading Challenge.
  4. You're welcome to list your books beforehand or just add as you go.
  5. Sign-ups are open until December 1, 2013
  6. At the beginning of each month, I will post a kick-start post, each month featuring a different category of paranormal creature. This post will also include a linky to include your reviews from that month.
  7. Each review you link will qualify you for an entry into the monthy giveaway and if your review includes the feature paranormal creature of that month, you get a bonus entry.
  8. Each book can only count for one category, even if it contains more than one paranormal creature. For example, Twilight contains both vampires and werewolves, but you can't use it for both the vampires and werewolves/shifters categories. Everyone who completes the challenge will be entered into a grand prize giveaway at the end of the year.
  9. If you read multiple books from one category, feel free to add them to the linkies. Don't stop at just one!
  10. Book can count for other challenges

Nothing about length, format, or re-reads so I'll count them all.
