Over on Litsy, there’s a monthly challenge with themes for every day of the month. (If you haven’t joined Litsy, it’s an Android/iPhone social network that feels like the love child of Instagram and Goodreads. It’s fantastic, and you can find me there as crystallinegirl!) Real Life Reads on Litsy posts the thirty day challenge every month, and I thought I’d cross-post it here, and try to cross-post my daily posts for it. I may eventually go back to just doing the daily challenge on Litsy and Facebook, and save this blog for more in-depth reviews, but we’ll see how this goes! This is the challenge for June:
And since today is June 22nd, (which also happens to be my husband’s birthday, Happy Birthday, Love!) today’s theme is “Teeth.” When I think of Teeth, I immediately think of vampires. (I kind of have a thing for vampires. I spent a lot of time playing Vampire: the Masquerade in high school.)
So I pulled together just a few of my many vampire-related books! Kelley Armstrong’s Bitten is the exception here, it’s about werewolves, but I couldn’t leave it out, with a title like that! (No, I have not seen the TV series yet.) Prince of Many Faces is a nonfiction look at the historical Dracula, and it’s pretty fascinating. Nosferatu is actually a fiction novel from the world of Vampire: the Masquerade, and it was the cover illustration that made me pick it, as opposed to the dozens of other V:tM novels I own. (yes, dozens.) The Vampire Book is just a reference book, and it’s a bit dated at this point, but it’s fun to flip through.
I’ll come back and add in links to each day’s post as I post them.
