2014 What An Animal Reading Challenge VII Sign Up

2014 What An Animal Reading Challenge VII hosted by Socrates' Book Reviews.

Welcome to the 2014 What an Animal Reading Challenge VII.  The challenge will begin on January 1st. Read on for more details...

The rules are really simple...

1. Read at least 6 books that have any of the following requirements:

a. there is an animal in the title of the book

b. there is an animal on the cover of the book

c. an animal plays a major role in the book

d. a main character is (or turns into) an animal (define that however you'd like).

***** AMENDED:

Level 1 - Read up to 6 books

Level 2 - Read 7-12

Level 3 - Read 13 or more

2. The animal can be any type of animal (real or fictitious)--dog, cat, monkey, wolf, snake, insect, hedgehog, aardvark...dragon, mermaid, centaur, vampire, get the idea...

3. Challenge runs from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014. That’s a full year to read at least 6 books (you can read more if you’d like). 

4. Books can be fiction or nonfiction.

5. You may make a list of books at the beginning of the challenge or you can just list them as you find them.

6. Book titles may be swapped out at anytime (assuming you made a list to begin with).

7. Crossovers with other challenges are permitted and encouraged.

8. You don't have to have a blog or write a review, but you can if you want to.
 If you don't have a blog, just post in the comment section that you'd like to join. You can post your books in there. Or you can sign up by joining my group on Goodreads for this challenge by clicking here.

9. Books can be in any format of your choice (print, audio, ebooks)

This sounds interesting and although I don't usually read books with ordinary animals in them I do read a lot of shifter books and some of my other books sometimes have animals on the cover.
My goal will be level 1 - read up to 6 books.

List of Books:
  1.  A little Christmas Magic by Sylvie Kurtz (dog on cover and part of story)
  2. Brazen by Kelley Armstrong  (Main character is a werewolf)
  3. Must Love Hellhounds by Charlaine Harris (Hellhound in title) 
  4. John Macnab by John Buchan (book about poaching) 
  5. The Rising by Kelley Armstrong  (main character changes into a cougar) 
  6. Curran POV Collection by Gordon Andrews (main character changes into a Lion)
  7. Gunmetal Magic by Ilona Andrews (main character is a shapeshifter)
