2012 TV Addict Reading Challenge

I am proud to say I’m a TV addict. Oh, I love TV. I’m not fond of reality shows but I love a multitude of series. Totally addicted to Ringer, Once Upon A Time, Grimm, Revenge, NCIS, Castle, Psych, Warehouse 13..name a show, there is a good chance I may have seen it.

Details: Hosted by Belle’s Bookshelf

Runs from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012

The idea is to read the books that TV shows are based on. Where it’s a series, read the books that correspond to the TV seasons available (read the whole series if you want to, of course!). What you do from there is up to you: review the books, do book/show comparisons, review the TV shows, do recaps… whatever tickles your fancy!


  1. Single play: Read the books that correspond to ONE TV show.
  2. Mini-series: Read the books that correspond to TWO TV shows.
  3. Series: Read the books that correspond to THREE TO FOUR TV shows.
  4. Soap opera: Read the books that correspond to FIVE OR MORE TV shows.

I’m going to go for Series so four books.

1. Rurouni Kenshin (manga) = Rurouni Kenshin (anime)  (4 books)
2. Death Note (manga)=Death Note (anime)                         (12 books)
3.  Storm Front by Jim Butcher= Dresden Files                    (1 book)
4. Wolf’s Rain (manga)= Wolf’s Rain (anime)                       (2 books)

  1. Ha this is a challenge I should probably take up, too! I watch way too much TV sometimes! I like your choices. 🙂

  2. Thanks so much for signing up, love your choices! Looking forward to reading your thoughts on these series 😉

  3. Yeah, there are a lot of great TV shows! Have fun with True Blood. I used to watch those episodes religiously. 🙂

    • I missed the third season of True Blood (so sad) but I did watched the fourth season which I liked because I’m fan of Sookie and Eric. I’m looking forward to seeing the third season and the fifth season when it comes out.

  4. I am addicted to pretty much the same tv series. I’m giving up tv for lent! 😮 I don’t know if I can manage!

    • Forty days without me TV is something I wish you luck with. It would be impossible for me to give up TV. Especially with all the good series right now such as Lost Girl, Being Human, White Collar, Once Upon A Time, Grimm, Revenge and Switched at Birth. Yeah, I can’t really give that up.

      Good luck with lent.
