Stephenie Meyer Mini-Challenge Sign Up Here!

I'm branching out in my mini-challenge hosting. I'm going for an author that's alive for a change. While many are already aware of the phenomenon that is Stephenie Meyer, a few of you may be feeling that you are the only one left out who still hasn't joined the Meyer bandwagon. Well, whether you're reading her books for the first time or the fiftieth, I'd like to invite you to join the Stephenie Meyer mini-challenge. Like previous mini-challenges, I'm asking participants to read two books. Feel free to read more than that.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
New Moon by Stephenie Meyer

Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (available in August of 08)

The Host by Stephenie Meyer

I'll also encourage you to read these books though they're not technically by Meyer. They could count towards your count if you like.
A New Dawn: Your Favorite Authors On Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Series by various authors but edited by Ellen Hopkins.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare

This mini-challenge will begin June 1, 2008 and end January 30, 2009. Sign up by leaving a comment. No blog is required. Audio books are fine. No reviews are required BUT I'd appreciate it if you did a follow-up comment saying what two books you read. And also if you liked them. IF you read the Twilight series, you can tell me if you're on Team Edward or Team Jacob.




I will be reading THE HOST for Becky's Online Reading Group this July. I invite you all to join me in that! I think it will be very fun. :) The schedule will be posted relatively soon. It will be up by mid-June at the latest.

Count me in Becky! I keep seeing Twilight and Eclipse but have resisted reading them because I don't typcially like vampire books...but I have loved a lot of the books you have recommended so I will give it a try!! :) I would also like to do "The Host" reading group, but I am 68 on the library list...I might have to break down and buy it hardcover!! My reviews will be on www.ReadingDerby.blogspot.com

Marg said...

I am in on this one as well. I have already read all the Twilight books, but I haven't read The Host yet!

Stephanie said...

Me too!! Since I'm probably the last person in the known world who HASN'T read the Twilight Books, I guess it's time for me to start.

I will try to get The Host, but I'm WAY down the list at the libary as well.

Grilsgood said...

Not sure why I am doing; this, i much prefer porno to vampires. Might be the first I dont finish.

I love the Twilight books so I'm in.. I'll like to do "The Host" reading group too

Stephanie said...

I just finished The Host!! What a super book!! So I guess I've already finished my first book for this challenge!

Paige Y. said...

This is a challenge I can do. I have The Host already and will be getting Breaking Dawn as soon as it comes out so they will be my two books.

N.Vasillis said...

I'm in. I just finished all the books in the Twilight series. I'm on Team Jacob, though I am starting to think he's too good for Bella.

Shon said...

I'll join Becky. Her Twilight Series is on my TBR list and I should start Twilight very soon.

Thanks for hosting this.

Bobbi said...

Oh, please sign me up for this challenge. I've read all of Stephenie Meyer's books - twice this year alone. I'm anxiously awaiting Breaking Dawn!

Bobbi said...

I currently have 2 reviews on my blog: Twilight and The Host. I have read New Moon and Eclipse, but I don't have reviews ready yet. I love Stephenie Meyer's books and am anxiously awaiting Breaking Dawn!

katrina said...

I'm in, I just finished Twilight I'll be looking for the next book in the library. I have The Host coming to me as part of a bookring in the next few months.
My review of Twilight is here:

Shon said...

I've read Twilight and just finished New Moon yesterday. Now I'm reading Eclipse. I'm really enjoying this series.

As for Team Edward and Team Jacob, I'm still undecided. I have to admit that I was happy that New Moon focused more on Jacob than Edward. I can't decide which team I'm on because I can't decide whether or not I like Bella. We'll see.

Webster Twelb said...

I've read the three books, just waiting for the 4th one to come out. I've also read P&P and Pride and Prejudice. Still waiting for my free time to read Wuthering Heights. As for the host...not yet. I can't afford it and we don't really have libraries to borrow it.

Strlady said...

I had originally signed up for this challenge b leaving a comment on your reading blog but never posted a comment here. Still, want to give an update.
i read the Twilight Series for this challenge. I found myself routing for Edward all the way. Jake was the best friend we all want but Edward was the main man from book one for me.
I finished the complete series and recently posted my reviews on my blog:
Stephenie Meyer Books at Sandy's Reading Journal

Thanks for the incentive to read them so quickly!!

I bought "Breaking Dawn" for one of my friends the day it came out. When she found out I hadn't read any of them, she loaned me "Twilight" and I have since finished the series. (Since I think that "Breaking Dawn" came out in August, I think I have started and finished in the timeframe--yay!)It took me awhile to get into Twilight, but after that, I couldn't wait to find out what happened!

Ash H. said...

Hello. I just discovered your very cool blog. Is it too late to sign up (although I am not sure what exactly I am signing up for. lol) I have read all of the Twilight series, as well as The Host. I am a huge fan of SM's writing and I am bubbling over with excitement that the movie comes out in TWO WEEKS!
