message 2: by Carolyn F. (new)

Carolyn F. 2 & 4 are going to be hard. I searched for over an hour for an Ireland/Irish book for another challenge. But I'm in. Can anyone give recommendations for #4?


message 3: by Angie (new)

Angie Would donating blood to a vampire count?


message 4: by Jael ~ *~ Syhren ~* ~, The Restorer (new)

Jael ~ *~ Syhren ~* ~ (wwwgoodreadscomprofilejael) | 1227 comments Mod
yes donating blood to a vampire counts. Carolyn F number 4 is hard if you're looking for a paranormal book but I know the Joanna Fluke Hannah Swenson fits the catergory as well as the Fever series by Moning for number 2. I may need to change 4.

For #2 there is a series by Kathryn Smith that is based in Ireland. It is the Brotherhood of the Blood and the first book is Be Mine Tonight.** okay after looking at these again it looks like only the last book in the series is based in Ireland but I could be wrong.** I haven't read them but they look interesting.
For #4 I found a couple of books that would count:
Tantalize
Cooking With Ergot-this is a kindle book so if you have a kindle it would work for you.
Blood and Chocolate

I'll let you know if I find anymoreBe Mine Tonight

I haven't read this series yet and am unfamiliar with that book so I'm not sure.

Yes, this will count and I think you just helped me pick my book for that one!


message 13: by Amanda (new)

Amanda (thehopelessbibliophile) I was going more for the "cafe" aspect - it's not quite food, but you'd expect food to be there!

No it wouldn't really count because it's a name of a place if I can remember coreectly the Lunatic Cafe is a club but this is a hard catergory so it's acceptable

5. Untamed
6. Rapture

Okay Pleasure ended up having a witch who loves to cook and cooks a couple of things. So that moved to the Mealtime section. However, then I read Rapture and there was no donation (of blood at least) so I have to move that to Potpourri. So now I've chosen A Girl's Guide to Vampires.
