The Love Bites Reading Challenge

The main link for this challenge could be found here ..

Whether your preference is vamps, weres or something more exotic - here's a challenge for all you paranormal/urban fantasy lovers!

All you need to do is read three paranormals with a romantic theme between 1st April and 30th June 2009.

That's it! No other rules. You can cross this over with another challenge and change your mind on the books you'd like to read halfway through if you like.

To sign up, please post a comment here with your name, blog address (if applicable) and the first book you intend to read. We recommend signing up to follow both Royal Reviews and The Love Bites Reading Challenge Blog to keep up to date with news and reviews for the duration of the challenge. You could even follow us publicly if you want to show the love :-)

You are encouraged to contribute your reviews to The Love Bites Reading Challenge Blog. All you need to do is send your name, blog and email address to anniebucknall at hotmail dot com and I'll give you permission to post to the blog. We ask that reviews are a minimum of three paragraphs and rate from 1 to 5 (1 being the lowest, 5 being the highest). You are also more than welcome to link to your own blog on your review. For the sake of consistency, please do not take offence if the layout of your review is formatted to fit the blog design - we assure you that none of your words will be edited.

Well since I love the paranormal and vampires in specific, this would be a great challenge.. I know I'm in so many challenges already but this one can't be passed by since I'm already reading these books..

My list..

Cozy Mystery Challenge 2009

I know, I know, I'm overdoing joining challenges but who could resist such a fun challenge?! I love mysteries and love cozies so what's the problem? I'm sure I would be reading some anyways so.. *the addict talking here :)*

Plus I did finish 3 challenges by the end of March *trying to convince myself that I'm entitled to joing new challenges*

I also know that I'm late in signing up for this challenge but I just saw it now at Yvonne's and as usual just couldn't get it by :) so I hope Kris won't mind the 4 day delay :) and accept me ;)
