Nowadays almost every book is part of a series. Sometimes a break from series is needed. That's where the standalone books come in. Sometimes its refreshing to read a book that is entertaining and enjoyable AND that wraps up in one book.

This challenge is for those lovely one timers.

Levels
Easy: 1-10 Standalones
Medium: 11-20 Standalones
Hard: 21-30 Standalones
Super Hard: 30+ Standalones

Duration
1 year from start date

Rules
1. All books in this challenge MUST be standalones
2. Re-reads are allowed as long as you really re-read them
3. You can put the link or cover of the book if you'd like
4. Identify which level you are doing
5. You may post books that have not been released yet as long as they are released during the duration of your challenge.

message 4: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle Love this one! I feel like I've read too many series lately and it is so overwhelming trying to finish all of them. It is somehow hard to find a standalone book since sometimes the author tends to change their plan and turn a standalone into a series. How I hate that!

Anyway, I am in and level is Super Hard

I agree. There are so many good standalone books that are awesome on their own but then the authors decided to make them a series and it ends up sucking. Especially when the book has a definate ending

Julia (juliace) Nowadays almost every book is part of a series. Sometimes a break from series is needed. That's where the standalone books come in. Sometimes its refreshing to read a book that is entertaining and enjoyable AND that wraps up in one book.

This challenge is for those lovely one timers.

Medium: 11-20 Standalones
Hard: 21-30 Standalones
Super Hard: 30+ Standalones

Duration
1 year from start date > 02.07.16

Rules
1. All books in this challenge MUST be standalones
2. Re-reads are allowed as long as you really re-read them
3. You can put the link or cover of the book if you'd like
4. Identify which level you are doing
5. You may post books that have not been released yet as long as they are released during the duration of your challenge.

1 - The All You Can Dream Buffet 01.02.16
2 - The Moon Sisters 01.06.16
3 - The Book Thief 01.16.16
4 - Woman's Best Friend: Women Writers on the Dogs in Their Lives 01.26.16
