Another Challenge -- Am I Crazy?

You guys all know how much I love My Friend Amy right? Well, I've decided to join her L.J. Smith's Vampire Diaries Challenge because she swears these books changed her life.

Here's how it will work:
Amy is going to put a Mister Linky at the end of this post. All you have to do is put your blog's url in the Mister Linky indicating that you are signing up. If you don't have a blog, just put your name!

The challenge will begin September 1st. Amy will post another Mister Linky that day where you can put links to your reviews. The challenge will last one year. Amy thinks there will be some prizes along the road, we'll see.

Every Friday, after the Vampire Diaries has aired, Amy will post a recap. If enough people express interest in doing the same, she will add a Mister Linky to those posts as well so we can all read each other's opinions and theories. It will be fantastic.

Here are the books in the series:
THE AWAKENING
THE STRUGGLE
THE FURY
DARK REUNION
And the ongoing story in
THE VAMPIRE DIARIES: THE RETURN: NIGHTFALL

So here are all the details again since this is the world's longest Introduction to a Challenge Post:

What are we reading? L.J. Smith's The Vampire Diaries!
What are we watching? The Vampire Diaries on the CW!
When do we start? September 1st!
When do we have to finish? August 31st, 2010

I just ordered the first four books and set my Tivo so I'm ready to go! Will you join us?

You are crazy, but I totally understand because I love Amy too.

I read these books back in highschool and I loved them! Of course that was 15 years ago. But I'm still looking forward to the series that coming out.

ha-ha-ha
Don't feel bad. I joined too, and I have totally sucked and crapped out on most of my challenges so far. But it was Amy, so I just HAD to join :)

Sounds like a challenge I'd love, but we don't get any TV where I live.

Whoa! I would join this challenge if I wasn't overbooked with textbooks. This sounds fun. Have fun! =)

By the way, I'm giving away a copy of The Tale of Despereaux. Swing by when you have the time.=)

Amy said...

Just imagine you're a 14 year old me when you read the books. ;)

Glutton for punishment, but I've signed up too! Almost finished with the first book and eagerly anticipating the show. I've heard they are going to be very different from one another!
