2016 Reading Bites Reading Challenge

The Reading Bites vampire reading challenge is back for 2016 by request!

I love anything to do with vampires. One of my favorite sayings is “Forget being a princess. I want to be a vampire!”

I’m inviting others who love the vampire book genre to join me for this reading challenge.

This is a design it yourself challenge. I want you to choose your own reading goals.

New for 2016! 
To help you reach your Reading Bites goals, I will be hosting a few vampire readathons! I will be calling this the #ReadingBiteathon. The first one will be January 15 – 21, 2016. This is the winter edition. I will do one each season of the year. The sign up page for the first readathon can be found here.

The Rules: 

  • This challenge begins January 1, 2016 and ends Dec 31, 2016.
  • You may sign up anytime during the year.
  • I won’t be creating different levels. Read as little or as many books as you want.
  • You may include books of any format including traditional books, ebooks, or audiobooks.
  • Books may be YA, adult, horror, romance, etc.
  • You may reread books.
  • Books may count towards other reading challenges.
  • Use the hashtag #2016ReadingBites
  • If you could be so kind, please place the The Reading Bites Challenge banner on your blog to help spread the word.
  • Please link back to this blog, post about it on Facebook, Tweet about it, and so on to help spread the word.
