In 2018, it was asked if we could start a Finish the Series Challenge. We did it in 2019 and there was participation. So let's do it again!

Everyone is welcome to participate. For each person participating, list the series you want to finish, along with the titles to be read, and see how many you can complete in 2020. Or, you can just keep track of the series that you finish as you go. It's up to you!

Ready, go!


DianeLikesToRead | 123 comments I would like to read “The Amish Mystery” series by Laura Bradford. I need to read the first 2 books quickly so I can read the third book for the February challenge

Carolyn V It seems that a finshed series challenge is necessary for this group. so many amish books are part of a series. I finished my first series. The Amish Candymaker (The Amish of Mackinac County, #2) by Laura V. Hilton finished this series and started Ada's house series, book #1 The Hope of Refuge by Cindy Woodsmall is such a moving intriguing start in this series

Carolyn V finished 2nd series in amish reading. Simple Secrets (Harmony, #1) by Nancy Mehl ; Simple Deceit (Harmony, #2) by Nancy Mehl and
Simple Choices (Harmony, #3) by Nancy Mehl . Nancy Mehl is a great writer and author of this series. She does use religious notations in the last book especially; but, found enough interest/suspense in novels to keep my interest piqued.


message 11: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn V finished third series: A Sister's Forgiveness (Women of Pinecraft #2) by Anna Schmidt , A Stranger's Gift (Women of Pinecraft, #1) by Anna Schmidt and A Mother's Promise (Women of Pinecraft #3) by Anna Schmidt all great reading and stand alone novels

Carolyn V it took me a little bit to get the 4 books for the series number 4 completed. Amish vines and Orchards was such an interesting series; no boredom with this series. 1. a season of tending A Season of Tending (1) by Cindy Woodsmall ; 2. The Winnowing Season (Amish Vines and Orchards, #2) by Cindy Woodsmall ; 3. For Every Season (Amish Vines and Orchards, #3) by Cindy Woodsmall ; and 4. Seasons of Tomorrow (Amish Vines and Orchards #4) by Cindy Woodsmall I started the series last fall; enjoyable for that season being it revolves around apple orchard and found the series really piqued my interest

DianeLikesToRead | 123 comments Carolyn, I have to get the last book in that series!


message 17: by Carolyn (new)

Carolyn V I'm organizing my book collection again. I have 14 completed series to finish, and two series, to finish buying books. surprisingly, these are collections before 2013. so, I am accomplishing finishing the older series before buying new books, but, had to buy second hand to finish other series, most amish fiction is a series of books. Temptation is setting in to buy some new books over winter maybe.
I hope to get between 8-10 series finished this year.
