For the 2011 Vampire Challenge I have selected some potential books that I might be sampling this year. Do you want to know what I just might be reading. I say might because I am a very fickle being, almost ADD at some points. I get distracted by shiny pretty covers and set aside books that don’t grab my attention from the get-go, therefor there is no guarantee in the universe that I call home.

You, too my friend can join the vampire challenge! Just click here.

This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, Book 5)#1 – This Side of the Grave (Night Huntress, #5) by  Jeaniene Frost
Releases March 2011

#2 Shadowfever (Fever, #5) by Karen Marie Moning
Releases January 2011 – depending on what Barrons turns out to be will determine whether this book is available to be counted for this challenge. There are rumors that he might be a vampire, but personally I’m not a strong proponent of this particular theory.
