Urban Fantasy Challenge 2011

Dark Faerie Tales, by far one of the most interesting "must read blogs" for paranormal fiction enthusiasts, has announced the Urban Fantasy Challenge 2011.

Rules are simple:
- Read 24 new Urban Fantasy novels in 2011

Um yeah, I think that about covers it ;)

I'll be reading and reviewing for this challenge throughout the year (perhaps even Helena will join in). If you are interested in participating - and you don't have to be a blogger to sign up - please go to this entry at Dark Faerie Tales from more information and instructions. Sign ups will last throughout the year. And, to make things even easier, a reading list of possible titles to chose from has already been posted. What's even cooler? Some of these are already on my TBR pile. First and foremost, Darynda Jones's First Grave of the Right, which I have heard nothing but FANTASTIC things about. A friend of mine who knows Darynda managed to get her hands on an ARC of it. She's been taunting me with it ever since.

So far, the titles I'm planning to read for the challenge are:
1. First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
2. Dead on Delivery by Eileen Rendahl
3. Gods & Monsters by Lyn Benedict
4. Tangled Threads by Jennifer Estep
5. Ascension by Sable Grace
6. Dead Waters by Anton Strout
7. Master and Apprentice by Sonya Bateman
8. Under Wraps by Hannah Jayne
9. Bloodshot by Cherie Priest
10. Visions of Magic by Regan Hastings
I'll figure out the rest as I go.

24 titles are currently listed, and Dark Faerie Tales will be updating the reading list throughout the year. Happy reading, everyone!

Not yet. I want to read "First Grave..." like you wouldn't believe, but I got my copy on Nook. It's totally f***ed. I'm still waiting for me refund.
