Horns and Halos Reading Challenge 2010



This challenge is being hosted by Aimee at My Fluttering Heart. (click Aimee's blog title for sign up)

The Rules:

This challenge isn't about confining or boxing in its participants- it's about exploring Heaven and Hell and idea of Good versus Evil. So you can be creative. For example, if a book is set in Hell, but doesn't feature devils/demons, or it's set in The Fields of Elysium but no angels, you can still twist it to be on the list. Or if you're reading a book that features Greek gods, they could be classified as angels (or devils, if they're really mean). Oh, and fallen angels can be on whichever side you think best suits them.

You can include movies, poetry, artworks, graphic novels, picture books - any medium you want!

You can OF COURSE overlap with other challenges.

DO NOT START before January 1 2010. You can prepare, but don't start posting until then.

Rereads are optional.

You can choose to read as many or as little number of books for this challenge as you like, but once you commit to a number, you're committed to that number.

In your challenge post, please commit to the number of books you will read, and commit to a level (see below).

HOWEVER, if you find others to add to the list as time goes on, and you want to increase your number, then that's fine, but under NO CIRCUMSTANCES can you DECREASE your list!

So I would warn you perhaps to start off small if you're commitment-phobe.

The challenge will run from January 1 2010 until December 31 2010. But don't panic! You can join the challenge at any time.

The Levels:

Please choose your level in your introductory post.

The levels you can choose from are not about the number of books you read, but rather about you choosing the side of Good or Evil, and depending on whether the books you read will be entirely about devils, or angels, or a mixture.

There are 5 levels:

Inferno - Dirtily devilish (Books entirely about Hell/ devils)
Purgatory - More devilish than angelic (More books about Hell/devils than Heaven/angels)
Garden of Eden - Devilish and angelic in equal measure (50/50)
Paradiso - More angelic than devilish ( More books about Heaven/angels than hell/devils)
Celestial Heavens - Purely angelic (Books entirely about Heaven/ angels)

I've decided to do the Garden of Eden level, but I may add more later...maybe some movies?!

Angel Time--Anne Rice (angel side)
Hush, Hush--Becca Fitzpatrick (angel side)
Angels--Chuck Fischer (angel side)
Angel Star--Jennifer Murgia (angel side)
