Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Sounds like fun! I think I will record mine as I go, though, because it looks like it would take a lot of work to find ones from different series :). Have most of them....

2. School's Out - Forever (6/9/2010) *****
3. Chosen (25/10/2010) ****

Shera (Book Whispers) (sherabookwhispers) All right I'll have to pick these out in later. I'm looking at all the series I've started and just need to figure out which ones I want to continue . . .

Shera (Book Whispers) (sherabookwhispers) Here's a genreal idea, I won't be starting this until next year as part of my New Years resolution. Books are subject to change.


1. Magic Study
3. Web of Lies
4. Hallowed Circle
5.Friday Night Bites
7.It Happened One Autumn
9.One Foot in the Grave
10. City of Ashes
Magic Study (Study, #2) by Maria V. Snyder Devoured by Amanda Marrone Web of Lies (Elemental Assassin, #2) by Jennifer Estep Hallowed Circle (Persephone Alcmedi, #2) by Linda Robertson Friday Night Bites (Chicagoland Vampires, #2) by Chloe Neill Hexbound (Dark Elite, #2) by Chloe Neill It Happened One Autumn (Wallflowers, #2) by Lisa Kleypas Rogue (Shifters, #2) by Rachel Vincent One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress, #2) by Jeaniene Frost City of Ashes (The Mortal Instruments, #2) by Cassandra Clare

Hey Shera... (don't hit me) the idea is for you to read book 1 of a series for number 1, book2 from a diff series for number 2, 3 for 3.... Does that make any sense? There's also the series challenge where you just pick series you want to finish.

I won't hit you! ^_- Was totally my bad. Space cadet Shera at attention!

Now I have to narrow down which of these number 2 books I want to read. Though I have to confess I'm not sure if I have any series that are up to number 8, if I do I'm going to have a lot of reading on my hands.

Now back to the drawing board . . .

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
Haha. That was what I thought you needed help with... getting all the way to the end of the obnoxious amounts of series that have like 10-20 books. =) I didn't realize you had a lot of trilogies. Although, if you use Alpha for number six and take off Rogue it still means you have to read Rogue to get to Alpha. Put book 5 of Night Huntress since it'll be out in Feb, book 4 of Chicagoland since it'll be in May... and then it gets difficult. I would def. read Clare and Estep's series. Hexbound wasn't as good as Chicagoland. Esp. since each book of Chicagoland gets better. Hmm...

Shera (Book Whispers) (sherabookwhispers) Good idea. It will really push me to finish the series.

Shera (Book Whispers) (sherabookwhispers) Couldn't figure out what series to do for 7, but it shall come.

1. Red Hot Fury
2. Death's Mistress
3. Fatal Circle
4. Blood Heat
5. Roadkill
6. Alpha
8. Kitty Goes to War
9. Total Eclipse
10. Dead in the Family

I'm curious to see what you think of Red Hot Fury.

message 15: by Shera (Book Whispers) (last edited Dec 15, 2010 08:13AM) (new)

Shera (Book Whispers) (sherabookwhispers) Yeah, me too. At first I thought it was a romance and wasn't going to bother with it, but the book states it's urban fantasy on the spine.

I was going to hold of starting on this for next year, but I think starting now would be fine.

message 16: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Finally thought of a book that I can read for the number 9! :) Have to get back to reading for this challenge sometime soon!

I finally finished!

Shera (Book Whispers) (sherabookwhispers) Wow!! Go Heather, I haven't even started on mine. Gosh I feel so guilty. *blushing*

message 20: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
If I ever updated these, I'd finish much faster.

Shera (Book Whispers) (sherabookwhispers) Oooo, good picks.

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
Good luck.

Shera (Book Whispers) (sherabookwhispers) Gentry isn't anything like the Anita books. But I liked them both.

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Finished the first half; just have to find series long enough to do the rest.

message 26: by Heather (new)

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
Haha. Good job so far.
Psy-Changeling will get you there. As will Morganville Vampires, Pretty Little Liars, and House of Night. The last Vampire Academy will get you number 6 if you want to use PLL's for a diff number. Those are all series you've read and seemed to enjoy so far.
I can help you with others if you want to read something else. Just let me know.

message 27: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Those are all (except Psy-Changeling) series that I need to finish! Put PLL #7 up there. It might get switched out with Morganville though, depending on which one I can get a hold of first.

Heather T (horrorvacui000) | 532 comments Mod
I went through your to-read list to see if I could find stuff for you. =)

I had all these weird numbers. I could have gotten 14, 22, etc., but getting numbers 7 and 8 were the most difficult.
