The 2013 Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge is being hosted by Darlene's Book Nook. I've loved the Sookie Stackhouse books for years and I'm always amused by how popular they've become since True Blood started, especially as they are pretty different to the show.
I think this challenge is a great way to celebrate the release of the final book in the series (Dead Ever After) this summer and I'm really looking forward to taking part.
RulesCopied across from Darlene's blog:
- The challenge will run from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. Books must be read during this time-frame to count.
- You can join the challenge at any time! All books read in 2013 count for the challenge, regardless of when you sign up.
- This challenge can cross-over to your other reading challenges.
- You do not need a blog to participate! If you are not a blogger, you can post your reviews at Goodreads, Shelfari, or LibraryThing and link them up here.
- All formats of books are acceptable: Bound copies, e-books, and audiobooks (as long as they are unabridged).
- There are four levels for the challenge:
- Level 1 "Just A Drop": Read 1-4 books in the series.
- Level 2 "A Small Bite": Read 5-8 books in the series.
- Level 3 "So Thirsty": Read 9-12 books in the series.
- Level 4 "Hungry For More": Read all 13 books in the series!
- When you write your sign-up post, you must choose your level. You can go up but you cannot go down!
- There will be a separate linky for your reviews, which will be posted on THIS page.
- There will be a linky for your wrap-up post at the end of the year.
