Elinor | 1548 comments So here is the thing : I'm really bad at finishing series. Like, really really bad. See, I don't want things to end. Plus I always start way too many series.
Here is my Incomplete Series Challenge. The rule is : Every book read in a series bring in points. I can start a new serie every 10 points.
Continuing a series = 1 point
Bringing up to date = 2 points
Finishing a series = 3 points
Finishing a 10+ volumes series = 5 points
I will make a few exception for buddy reads.

MorteTorment(Unofficial World's Fastest Reader) | 386 comments Wow, I'm bad at it too, mostly because after the 4th, 5th, or 6th book in the series I get kinda bored of it. the exception seems to be The Legend of Drizzt.


message 3: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments Good luck! I really like your points system, I think it's a great idea :)


message 4: by Elinor (last edited Jun 02, 2018 12:38PM) (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments I did start this challenge perfectly in time, for I have finished my first series with The Hero of Ages (yes I'm counting it as a proper series)
So go me, 3 points already ^^

Thanks Virginie, I like this idea that came out of nowhere last night ^^

Right now I don't have this bored problem MorteTorment, it's more a "I want to read everything... so I start every series I come across", similarly to the "I want to read everything so I start all the books without finishing them" ^^


message 5: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments And with Trapped that makes 1 continuation point, so a total of 4 points.

I won't be counting books 1 read this month, they were planned before this challenge.

Nice!
And I think that's fair. Otherwise, you would have to read tooons of books to atone for all the series started because "BR madness" :p


message 11: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments 7 points !


message 12: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments And with a Kate Fosley mystery (a series it seems I'm reading completly out of order, something I never do and don't like to do, but the first one isn't translated in French, so I started with book 2, and I was sure I had grab book 3 when it really was book 6...), that's 10 points ! I can start a new series now :) I'm thinking about the Colin Dexter's Morse, but we will see.


message 13: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments Congrats! :D


message 14: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments thanks :)


message 15: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments Just finished The trouble with love and with that another series ! I'm a bit sad because I really love this series. But there is a spin off, so yeah, and this author has a lot of other books I haven't read yet.


message 16: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments Great job, Elinor :)


message 17: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments Just finished another series with The Crimson Crown ! So that makes 20 points.


message 18: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments Congrats! That makes 2 series earned :)


message 19: by Anni (new)

Anni | 5048 comments Well done Elinor! And I really like your point system and that you use all the beautiful book covers :) I changed my headpost too a few weeks ago and added covers.


message 20: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments Thanks girls :)
I forgot to say that I spent one point wth Jackaby. Was going to not count it as it was a "review" copy, but since I still have another point earned...

Anni, I'm finding this system quite nice. I can earn a book 1 by reading 10 continuations and that's great since I don't usually binge-read series, and I like variety, and some of those series are really long or I'm really behind... so it works nicely for me :)


message 21: by Anni (new)

Anni | 5048 comments Wow, you're right, I haven't realised how long some of these series are! 😱 Most of the series I read contains 4-6 books, so I just try to finish one or two series for starting a new one :D


message 22: by Virginie (new)

Virginie | 5795 comments Yeah. The Urban Fantasy ones are especially long, I think :O


message 23: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments I thought The Crowns of Croswald was a stand alone but it doesn't seem so. So, I need to spend my 2nd earned series starter for it. Luckily, I'm up to date since there is just this one, so I got 2 points :)


message 24: by Laura Tenfingers (new)

Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Oooh! I'll read Chronicles of Barsetshire with you! I've also only read The Warden. Maybe we could pitch it on the classics thread some time...

I've started the sequel, Barchester Towers, but I'm only something like 100 pages-ish in, so could totally wait to read alongside you :)


message 26: by Laura Tenfingers (new)

Laura Tenfingers | 1125 comments Hilarious! I just randomly found it at the library the other day and grabbed it but... I have no time! Well, that never stopped me from starting a book before... 😂😂 I'll do my best. Should we request a thread?

Elinor | 1548 comments I am casually reading a few pages from time to time, so if you don't have the time for it right now we could totally report it to say October or November. Or we can read it now but I won't be reading it really fast I fear, since I have a lot of things planned for September.
And we could request a thread for the whole series perhaps ?

Siobhan (poi5ongirl) | 7854 comments Elinor, I love the way your challenge looks, and the points system! :D
Not sure why I've only just seen this now!!


message 30: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) | 1613 comments I also need to finish Splendid/Bevelstoke/Maiden Lane/Lux( only oblivion and shadows is left - fits in where you are at)/Inspector Hannasyde.

I will be starting Twenty Sided Sorceress - so you can read and finish with me if you want!

My October and November are totally overbooked... 😯
Would you mind waiting until January? I'd love to go for the whole series.

YES. I have a strange relathionship with this series and having someone to BR them will surely make my reading easier ! Where are you at ?

Yeah, that's a lot of BR to happen ! :)
I was thinking maybe planning Ten Things I Love About You in November, if you want to join me :) (I need to be careful about my November and don't plan too much stuff since I'm thinking about doing the Nanowrimo... won't have a lot of time to read !)
For Lux I started Shadows but even tough it's really short, I can't seem to bring myself to pick it up and read it. So we can do this one whenever you want !


message 35: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) | 1613 comments I can't do any this year. It is full exams season. So, if you want to do them this year I will join you for something else next year!

I can do all of those next year and I would really really like it if you can go to my incomplete series spreadsheet and see if you are interested in any.

Falling Kingdoms- I found somebody who is reading it today only and we decided to do around 75 pages per day till we finish from tomorrow.

Are you going to read from the beginning?

I actually only have the 6th book to read but I need to reread because I have forgotten lot!


message 36: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments I will wait for you :) it's more fun to BR
Which one am I going to read from the begining (or not ^^) ? Shadows ?

Also forgot to say that I was thinking about sign in the MacHalos... especially for the Twenty-Sided reads but also because it's been a long time since I eyed that group and was thinking about getting in ^^

Yep, on my way to your thread :)


message 37: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) | 1613 comments Falling Kingdoms from the beginning.

Lux I only need to read Shadows and Oblivion.

Join in join in but between this group and that one when will you get time to actually read 😂.

Definitely join in, looking forward to seeing you there

Twenty sided sorceress is 2 books a month from January.


message 38: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments Not reading Falling kingdoms from the beginning, I didn't like them enough to reread the first 2 ^^ but will cathc up with you when you get to book 3 !

I've made my demand for the MacHalos :)

2 books a month seems doable since they are short !


message 39: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) | 1613 comments Okay and Inspector Hannasyde too right?

Do Mark all of these in your tracker and when I come back on the first of the the brand new year we will plan the dates. Hoping that you haven't forgotten yet 😋


message 40: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) | 1613 comments And Gryphonpike to be continued - I didn't start yet as you didn't check in!


message 41: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments I may very well forget a lot of things so don't hesitate to remind me xD
Just started Gryphonpike 2 ! (didn't I check in ? I thought I did ! But perhaps I didn't ?)


message 43: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) | 1613 comments I'm going to make a list of all the discussions in the past few days so that I don't forget.


message 44: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) | 1613 comments Ask and I shall deliver - I see you want to read Fever too - Buddy reads are planned in FBR for that.


message 45: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments I think I saw a Fever thing here somewhere... already read books 1 to 3 ! eager to read the rest :)

Yes we have planned 1 and 2.


message 47: by Karishma (new)

Karishma (karishmanewar) | 1613 comments The rest will be done next year.


message 48: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments Perfect ! :)


message 49: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments I'm changing a tiny bit my count of the points. I still have the points I earned in 2018 (I will start a new count in 2019) but for the total I'm substracting 10 points for every series started (except, as already stated, for some BR). I hope I won't always be in negative ^^


message 50: by Elinor (new)

Elinor | 1548 comments One more series finished, yeah !
