Moning Maniacs Challenge
[And Contest!]

All the Dolls here at Paperback Dolls are fans of Karen Marie Moning. We’ve been wanting to do a challenge for a wile and what better way to do it than with an author we all absolutely love? Most people may not know this, but Karen’s world from the Fever series actually starts in her first series, Highlander. It’s where we’re introduced to Queen of the Tuatha dé Danaan and her Unseelie King. Adam Black, all the MacKelter men, and her rich world. So if you haven’t read Karen Marie Moning before, then this will be the perfect challenge for you. If you have read up to a certain point in one or both series, but would like to re-read and catch up, then join now!

  1. >This is a great idea-I've been wanting to re read her highlander series forever.

  2. >are you aware that muster linky doesn't work if you don't enter a url? it's quite frustrating.

  3. >Hmm… If you don't have a blog, then use ours. Enter http://paperbackdolls.com/ in the linky url.

  4. >I was thinking of signing up, and maybe I still will, but although I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Fever series and I was not a fan of the Highlander series. I read the first one and really had to struggle through. Just too much romance and not enough of the magical and paranormal type stuff. I'll think on it though. Maybe I need to just try again. We'll see…

  5. >You know Candace, the first is my least favorite too. The first time I read it, I had to really struggle through it. It's alright if you can't finish it. Just give us reasons to why you couldn't and move on to To Tame a Highlander. Grimm's story doesn't have the fae aspect either, but it is a great story. Though, it'll be book 3, The Highlander's Touch, that is the beginning of why you love the Fever series so much. You won't be sorry that you gave it a second chance. 🙂

  6. >I have read all of Miss Monings work, I LOVE her, and have been wanting to re-read these all again anyway. I will have to give it a go. I don't have my own blog, but if I understand correctly, I can just post my reviews on amazon? That I can do. Thanks!! Artesia at comcast dot net

  7. >I have all of the KMM's books. Yes even Into the Dreaming.I will gladly reread. lol Adam Black *coughs* Of course seeing how my birthday is Jan. 5, I'm going to work extra hard to win this one lol.

  8. >Alright. Gonna try to do this but this challenge is going to be extra challenging for me: I dont have all the books. Now, this should be interesting…:D

  9. >I have read all of Karen's book's and cannot wait fot the next book to come out on December 2010. The Mac fever Series.She is one of my favorite writer's and I hope she continues to write awesome stories but Karen can ya WRITE THEM A BIT FASTER PLEASE! Love Sheila~

  10. >Okay I have finally got started. Blogged Beyond The Highland Mist @http://bamalovesbooks.blogspot.com/Can't wait for Shadowfever. January is going to be a great month. Everyone check out KMM's site. She is doing a huge Shadowfever RElease party in Nola and YOU WILL get the book on Monday. Yes that's right the hotel she has chosen is beautiful. Can't wait. Nothing like reading some Highlanders to get in the mood. 🙂

  11. >OMG I'm dying to know who won!!!!!!
