Netanella | 439 comments RRRC Serial Killer/Reader Challenge

Duration: January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2014

As requested, a series challenge. The duration of this challenge is one year from the sign-up date. You can cross challenge with other challenges, but within Serial Reader the books you list cannot repeat.
This one is monstrous, not for the faint of heart!!! In order to complete it officially, you'll have to read: 28+ books and 15+ different series. Yup, you're reading it right. But fear not, I'm willing to compromise: if you omit some of the subcategories and then call it quits - fine by me - you just won't be all that notorious then. Of course, you can post as you go, but be sure to sign up to set the start date. (note: it's ok to back date if you wish to do so)
So Serial Readers, are you up for the challenge?!

4.
Storm Front (The Dresden Files, #1) by Jim Butcher

6. The Book Strangler (2+ books):
Read a whole series from the beginning to the end (or to the last published book). You choose whether it's going to be a 15-book-long-monster or a 2-book-long-freshly-started-baby series, but there must be at least 2 books, because it's not really a series yet if there's just 1!

BONUS: Bloody Mary (1 book):
Read a book in a series with a strong female kick-ass protagonist, something like: police detective, body builder, warrior. So for example LKH Anita Blake would work.

As you are working your way through the challenge, feel free to either repost your progress or update a single post, but please repost upon completion of the challenge. With people starting and ending the challenge at different times, it's extremely difficult to keep track of when people finish without a final repost.
