Challenge Instructions:

Period of Challenge: January 1 - December 31, 2019


For each of the number, from 1 to 19, you will have to read book/s that is part of a series* and use the serial number to make up the sum of the number.

ONLY series books are allowed in this challenge BUT there are no page limitations so feel free to read any of the .5 books/stories to make up your sum ;)

*series name are usually in grey font next to the title and will have a number denoting its place in the series

WARNING: you will need some arithmetic skill for this challenge though you will only need to be able to add up to 19.

EXAMPLE

For the number 1 (ONE), I can read:

The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere #1) -being first book in the series

OR

The Magician's Apprentice (The Black Magician Trilogy 0.5)
A Dark Grave (The Elysium Chronicles 0.5)
Where 0.5 + 0.5 = 1

For the number 5 (FIVE), I can read:

Origin (Robert Langdon #5) -being 5th book in the series

OR

The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere #1)
The Diviners (The Diviners #1)
Thief's Magic (Millennium’s Rule #1)
Halo (Halo #1)
Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms #1)
Where 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 5

OR

The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere #1)
The Harp In The South (Harp in the South #2)
The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike #2)
Where 1 + 2 + 2 = 5

OR

The Magician's Apprentice (The Black Magician Trilogy 0.5)
A Dark Grave (The Elysium Chronicles 0.5)
The Harp In The South (Harp in the South #2)
The Silkworm (Cormoran Strike #2)
Where 0.5 + 0.5 + 2 + 2 = 5

The options are unlimited!

For series books that is greater than 18, you can use the sum of the series number. See below example;

For the number 7 (SEVEN), I can read:

Deception (Alex Delaware #25)
Where 2+5 = 7

Additional notes:

1. If a book is noted to belong to more than 1 series, you can only claim it once but you may pick which serial you use.

For example, Rainbow Six which is noted as Jack Ryan Universe #10 or John Clark #2; it's your choice whether you'd claim #10 or #2 but NOT both.

2. If you'd like to participate but don't really read a lot of serial books, here's an option for you:

Read 19 serial books.
It doesn't matter what number in the series they are as long as they are part of a series. And yes, just 19 books!

3. For the serially addicted: you are more than welcome to do more than 1 round OR you can add certain condition or two or three (for a dash of extra challenge) in your Seriously Serial '19. Examples of conditions:

a) a maximum of 5* books from one series
b) a maximum of 5* series to read from (so you can get up to date this year instead of in 10 years' time!)
c) at least 5* books from each of the following shelves: mystery, historical-fiction, fantasy, science-fiction, crime, etc.
etc...

*you may change this number to suit yourself

4. Extremely Serial Challenged? Maybe this one will challenge you:

Read serial books published in year ending xxx1 - xx19. The books must be part of series and 1 book for year ending with 1, 2 books for year ending with 2 etc...

Example;

#1: Read 1 serial book published in year ending with 1
Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns #1) -pub. 2011

OR

Sea of Silver Light (Otherland, #4) -pub. 2001

...

#11: read 11 serial books published in year ending '11
1. Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns #1) -pub. 2011
2. Blood of Anteros (The Vampire Agápe #1) -pub. 2011
3. The Deliverance of Evil (Trilogia del Male #1) -pub. 2011
...
10. The Good Muslim (Bangla Desh #2) -pub. 2011
11. Forever (The Wolves of Mercy Falls #3) -pub. 2011

and so on

Yes! I think it's time I got my son into this...

Actually, I wanted to wait for his 10th birthday (Oct 2019) to start the first book but I found out a couple of months ago that for his reading group at school, he's reading book 2 (without having read book 1!!!!) :O I was crushed and now we can't wait anymore ha ha ha

Do you want to see what your schedule is like & pm me a proposed schedule for the series read along? I'll post and see if anyone else is interested in the new year :)

I have emailed you my plan, but it is a rather fast paced one. I don't mind if the group is reading at a slower pace.

Ines (innit13) | 55 comments UPDATE2: Ok, I've decided to simplify things rather than making myself speedread even more. I ended up removing a lot of read books but at least that means I finished a couple of weeks ago XD I'll try to keep a better eye on it next year ;)

UPDATE1: The hardest thing about this were the calculations. Too many bloody books with a decimal point ^^ I suppose I could have worked out a way without everything exceeding the number (and having to reduce it to the number's sum) but I wanted to have all the books in there, and it seemed easier at the time. Anyways, I guess I didn't make things easier by starting a lot of series and havong lots of #1s and maybe #2s in there, but since I'll be continuing most of them, I hope it'll be easier next year. I still have to read some of them to make it work - 5 days to go!!
