2009 Paranormal Challenge

This will blend so well with my 666 Reading Challenge, and only requires 2 books over the whole year.  That’s a piece of cake (I hope I don’t eat these words).  Here are the details:

I’ll try to do the Paranormal Challenge for 2009. I will do it alone, but if you’re interested, let me know. I’d love to have some company!

For the challenge you will read books with paranormal aspects – this can be werewolves, vampires, fairies, witches, ghosts, mediums, psychics etc. It’s pretty much your pick!

The challenge will start January 1, 2009 and end December 31, 2009.

The goal is to read 2+ books in 2009, that’s it. It should be manageable, I’d say

666 Reading Challenge


This is a challenge that I think might have been made just for me, lol!  This is my favorite genre of books so I was thrilled to see it out there when I did a search of book challenges.  Here are the details:

The 666 challenge is called so because the requirements are this:
1.) You must choose 6 of the categories below.
2.) For each category, you must read 6 books for each.
3.) You must read at least 6 different authors. Variety is the spice of life, isn’t it?

Do you have to read 36 books, though? No. Some books can certainly be put under multiple categories. For example, Twilight has both vampire and werewolves, so that can be put under both categories.

If you want to see what an example of your post page would look like, just view here.

Sound simple enough? If not, of course you can leave a comment and I would be more than happy to clear things up for you.

The horror categories are as follows, though not limited to. You must pick SIX different categories to read books about. If you have an idea for a suggested category, simply leave me a comment with it. Keep in mind it has to have something to do with horror, thriller, the supernatural and/or monsters.

  1. Vampires
  2. Werewolves
  3. Witches/Warlocks
  4. Psychics
  5. Human’s with special powers (like telepathy, telekinesis, etc).
  6. Creatures from other worlds
  7. Horror creatures/Monsters
  8. Ghosts/Poltergeists
  9. Paranormal creatures/events
  10. Killers/Stalkers
  11. Demons

You are free to come up with your own categories (you can even suggest them in the comments). Above are just some of my suggestions.

Books can be in more than one category. They can also be fiction or nonfiction. Yes, a book about haunted places in the US will count as as a book about ghosts, for example.


  1. You must read 6 books in 6 categories by at least 6 authors
  2. Books must be horror, thriller, or supernatural.
  3. You cannot include audiobooks, journals, comic books, or manga. You can include ebooks.
  4. Keep a running book count/completed list.
  5. If rereading a book, you have to have finished it at least a year ago.
  6. Books can overlap categories.
  7. You can use books for this challenge that you are reading for other challenges.
  8. This challenge will run January 1, 2009-December 31, 2009.
