Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge

Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge

I did not get to read any Sookie this year. So, I plan on doing a personal challenge of this series by restarting efforts in 2015 with no deadline.

2014 Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge
hosted by Darlene's Book Nook
January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014
Details | Linky

Four levels for the challenge:
a. Level 1 "Just A Drop": Read 1-10 books in the series.
b. Level 2 "A Small Bite": Read 11-20 books in the series.
c. Level 3 "So Thirsty": Read 21-30 books in the series.
d. Level 4 "Hungry For More": Read 31-32 books in the series!

As I am starting late, I will go for Level 1 - JUST A DROP

~*~

I just finished watching season 6 of the True Blood series and started watching the last and final season 7 On Demand. I will finish up with the binge-ing this week and know that I will be wanting more.


Back in 2009 I started a Sookie Stackhouse challenge where I started reading the series and watching the tv version. Although, the stories from both were similar they had slight differences that threw me off. So, I decided to hold off on the reading and focus on the tv version.

I got to book 3 in the series and now ready and raring to pickup book 4.

At the rate I will be going, this challenge will carry over into the next couple years.
