KRESLEY COLE 

IMMORTALS AFTER DARK
2011 READING CHALLENGE
Yep, you’ve read that correctly! I’m hosting my first ever reading challenge. But me being me, I’m doing it in my own way!  
Kresley Cole’s fabulous (so I’ve been told) IAD series has been on my wish list since I started reading paranormal romance books two years ago.  But to date, I still haven’t made the time to read the books. It’s tough carving out time to read a well-established series such as IAD. There are TEN stories out to date (8 full-length books and 2 anthology/novellas), with the 11th book coming in February 2011.  For more information about this series, please visit Ms. Cole’s website HERE.
THE PLAN.  Since I am crazy busy just trying to read and review the books I already have, and I know that there are others out there in the same boat, I wanted to have a plan to read the stories and not get overwhelmed. So I plan to read one book/story per month starting January 2011.  I will post my review and lead an online discussion of the book on the THIRD FRIDAY of each month (schedule posted below).
I am very excited about this reading challenge and I hope that YOU will join me – whether you are a newbie like me, someone that’s read a few of the books, or you are looking to do a re-read of the series.
HOW TO JOIN IN THE FUN. Please use the “linky” tool below to sign up for the challenge.  If you have a blog, include a link so others can find you.  You do NOT have to be a book blogger to join in – you can use a GoodReads or Shelfari account as your link.  I ask that if you participate that you 1) read the stories according to the schedule, 2) on the day listed below, post a review or commentary about the book at your blog or “linky site,” 3) HAVE FUN!

I’ve created a button for the challenge, and I hope you will add it to your blog/website if you have one.  I look forward to jumping in with both feet and hope you will join me.  Let me know if you are interested (no obligations) or if you have any suggestions.  
Thanks and Happy Reading!

  • Yay! What a great idea! 😀 I’m a seasone IAD fan but I don’t think it will be a hardship re-reading all books, count me in, this sounds like a fantastic plan! 😀

  • OH MY GOD I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU TO READ THIS SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE Paranormal Romance series. The snarkyness of the female heroines and the SMOKIN HOT smex scenes, you won’t be able to put these books down. Promise. Can’t wait to hear what you think 😀

  • I’m confused by something.

    I would like to participate but I’ve already read “The Warlord Wants Forever” in PLAYING EASY TO GET,
    A HUNGER LIKE NO OTHER and NO REST FOR THE WICKED.

    Since one of the rules is to follow the schedule, does this mean I would start on April 15 with a review of WICKED DEEDS or…what?

    Help!

  • @Stella-Thanks! Be sure to sign up on the linky so others can find your blog for the challenge.

    @Spaz-thanks! Feel free to chime in on the discussions, even if you don’t officially do the challenge!

    @Calliope-Good question! I want this to be totally low-key and easy. My suggestions:

    1) re-read the first 3 stories with us;
    2) skip the first 3 stories, but still post comments with the rest of us;
    3) skip the first 3 stories and reviews, and just join up in April.

    I do ask that if you are going to post reviews/comments that you do it per the schedule. If you want to read all of the books at once, that’s fine, but if you participate in the discussions, please do it to the schedule. Does that make sense? If you have questions or concerns drop me an email (link in my header)

    THANKS EVERYONE! I’m very excited!!

  • Ok, I just finished the last one (can’t wait for the next one). I PROMISE YOU will not be able to spend all year reading them. Cause once you start, you can’t stop. 😉

  • Count me in for the challenge. I’ll only be doing the first two, which is on my full TBR list. Thanks Jen!

  • That is a fabolous idea!!! I haven’t read them but always wanted to! Count me in, I will create a post and come back later to sign in! Glad I found you!

  • Beth: that is my “fear” that I won’t be able to wait… but I figure the set schedule will help! Be sure to stop in and join in the discussions later.

    Kristen: Join in for as many books as you would like.

    Danny: Thanks!! I’m really glad you found me, too!

  • I’m in. Now I just have to buy the books. 🙂 I’ve heard really great things about this series.

  • I’m looking forward to this challenge!

  • I’ve already read all but the first novella at least 2 times. I can’t wait to start posting!
