The themes are things like zombies, shifters, steampunk, etc, but you can read outside of the themes too. I'm going to give a hesitant Cannot Pull Away (6 books), though in all likelihood, I'll end up at the Morbid level. ;p
- The Dead Tossed Waves (since I never got to read it for September Zombies)
- River Marked, Patricia Briggs
- Heartless, Gail Carriger

The second challenge is:
To read stories that have taken classic fairy tales that we all know and love, and have woven them into a new alternative tale that mirrors the original.
- Dreamer: 1 -3 retold fairy tale reads
- Magical: 4 -6 retold fairy tale reads
- Enchanted: 6 -9 retold fairy tale reads
- HEA: 9 -12 retold fairy tale reads
I'll go for the Magical level for now, but who knows where I'll end up.
- The Princess and the Hound, Mette Ivie Harrison
- Princess of the Mignight Ball, Jessica Day George
- Princess of Glass, JDG
- Cloaked, Alex Flinn
- I, Coriander,Sally Gardner
- Once Upon a Marigold, Jean Ferris
I'm mostly going to try to read down my tbr pile with these challenges. Nearly everything listed I own, so I need to work my way through them, and this gives me an excuse. That being said, I am always open to suggestions...
