Kadijah Michelle (kadmich) | 2176 comments Finish the Series Challenge
Duration July 1, 2016 to September 30, 2016


This challenge focuses on finishing book series you've already started. It can be a series you started several years ago or one you fell into reading just recently. *You may even start a brand new series as long as it can be completed in a the time span of the 3rd Quarter.

Here are the Rules:

1. For the purposes of this challenge, a series must have at least three books in it.

2. Identify how many series you plan to finish, or how many books you plan to read. There will be two separate lists to keep track of which ever you choose.

3. For the purposes of this challenge, series extras that are marked 0.1's, 0.5’s, 2.5's ect... will only count if you would like them to.

4. No matter how many books you've read in the series prior to the start of this challenge (even if you've read four of the five books, say), the series counts as long as you finish it.

5. The series does not need to be over to count in this challenge, but all of the books in the series that are currently published must be read.

6. If you choose the book option for this challenge, you are only responsible to read the number of books pledged, and do not have to finish the series even though that is highly recommended.

I will be leading this challenge because I am not a big series reader, and I am hoping to discover some great ones through all of you. I can't wait to see what you all read!

Yaara | 40 comments This challenge sounds awsome, but I'm not quite sure which series to read... I was thinking of re-reading Anne of Green Gables, but I dont have them all, plus, only the first 3 are any good. So...

I want to finish the Outlander extras:

8.5 - A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows


Percy Jackson and the Olympians:
1. The Lightning Thief
2. The Sea of Monsters
3. The Titan's Curse
4. The Battle of the Labyrinth
5. The Last Olympian


I also need to finish game of thrones, but maybe when winter comes. I can't be bothered with it at the moment...

Mell (mellrouvray) I like these kinds of challenges!
I will look at my series a bit later on to add more, but I have just started Cornerstone before seeing this challenge so I guess that is one series for a start! I will probably add one or two more though :)
