message 1: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (last edited Jan 13, 2011 04:08AM) (new)

Judithe | 6408 comments I firmly stated that I would NOT join another A-Z challenge this year after some of the difficulties finding a female character starting with "U" and such. However, I could not resist! There are lovely challenges for authors, books, male and female characters, shifters...

Then, inspired by Steph's ABC Series game right here on SOS, I realized what my self-challenge for 2011 would be. Yep, another A-Z challenge of SERIES! Please feel free to join me reading through the alphabet and enjoying many series!


How To:
Read one book of a series beginning with each letter of the alphabet using the first letter of the series name (can ignore a, an, the). The series do not have to be PNR/UF, but should have some element of paranormal in them.
*Re-reads and any format are allowed.
*Anthologies are not allowed.
*Duration: January 1 to December 31, 2011
**Please update original post--please include date read!**

Addendum
*For those really difficult letters (Q, Y and Z) the following alternatives are acceptable:
**main character' first or last name starts with Q, Y or Z
**author's first or last name starts with Q, Y or Z

*For the letter "X" the following alternatives are acceptable:
**main character, author or series name has the letter "x" in it (for example: Adrian Phoenix: The Maker's Song, and so on)
*You can join at any time, and include any book series you've read in 2011 as long as you include the date the book was read (i.e. if you join in February you can include books read in January as long as you know the completion date)

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments Evil! Pure Evil! LOL! I was looking over southpaws' series challenge and almost had a book for every letter. Didn't have one for XYZ and don't want to force-read. So.... not sure I'll join in. BUT, everyone that does, good luck and enjoy!!


message 7: by Josie (last edited Jan 09, 2011 03:08AM) (new)

Josie | 1967 comments Haha! As soon as I started doing a list I thought what have I done???
But maybe it'll open up new series for me. I hope...

And you're right Steph, this was extraordinarily evil of Judithe!

ETA: Also the 'ABC series' thread will come in handy for choosing books for this challenge :)


message 8: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6408 comments LOL! THAT was the inspiration! I was trying to figure out my personal challenge for the year, and that, after Hopscotch inspired this!

Welcome, Josie!

And let's ponder ways to lure in more....maybe series that have an X, Y, Z (or q) in the name (of the series, author or main character...) for those rather difficult letters....


message 9: by Steph, Serious series addict (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 29293 comments LOL Josie! Here's hopin'. :)

Judithe, I was going to use the Queen Betsy series for Q, if that'll help anyone. And, I could make characters work for those other difficult letters (already doing that for the shifter A-Z).


message 10: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6408 comments Hmmm...I'll think up wording for an addendum in the morning! LOL...start working on your list!

I placed a link to the SOS ABC Reading Challenge on my website The Kat's Meow. If it's ok with you, I'll add the SOS image to make it look spiffy, instead of just text. Left sidebar has all the reading challenges.

You have an entire year to find a book for every letter! Heck, I'll write a novel and title it beginning with your lonesome letter!


message 21: by Judithe, Soap Operas never end.... (new)

Judithe | 6408 comments LOL! Lovely idea! If you could incorporate a female character with either her first or last name starting with the letter U....it would be such a tremendous help! And using a "u" at the start of the series name....that would take care of TWO problematic categories!

Awesomevegan (AKA JenReads) (awesomevegan) | 468 comments Oh what fun! I am going to assume they can be any book in the series. This should help a bunch. I will also assume fantasy and sci-fi would be paranormal enough? I have a lot of each on my TBR this year. (Maximum Ride, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Chronicles of Narnia and MAYBE Lord of the Rings.) I am reserving a spot and will work on my list. I can't resist. :)

Diane ~Firefly~ | 908 comments I was really surprised at how few choices I had for series starting with T.

Fictfact.com was awesome for this. Just sort by series name and write down the next book you need/want to read.

That is exactly right! It's a good way to catch up on some series with just one book, try some new things, and any number in the series is just fine!

Sandra | 23919 comments Daffodil, I don't think you'll have any trouble. LOL.


Awesomevegan (AKA JenReads) (awesomevegan) | 468 comments EEEK conflicting info for Goodreads and Fictfact. Is Firelight book 1 F for Firelight or J for Jacinda? I am probably going to go with F since this is a GOODREADS challenge lol.


message 42: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23919 comments I'd definitely go Goodreads AV!!


message 43: by Patty (new)

Patty (catnaping) Love the new rules Judithe.Quick question can I post books I have read starting Jan 1st or from when I posted my list on the 10th.


message 44: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23919 comments It better be from the 1st, cause that's what I've done. LOL.


message 45: by Josie (new)

Josie | 1967 comments I had conflicting info for Witchling (Sisters of the Moon, #1) by Yasmine Galenorn by Yasmine Galenorn. Goodreads say that the series is called 'Sisters of the Moon' whilst FictFact says 'Otherworld'. Soooo... I checked on Yasmine Galenorn's official site and found that the series can be called either. And after all of that pointless drabble, I'd say look on the author's official site or just choose which is convenient. Or just, you know, go with goodreads.

What a silly question, ladies! OF COURSE you can! Check out the date this challenge was uploaded, and the date of my first entry on my list....

note...add revision that you can join at any time and include any book you've read in 2011--as long as you include the date read....

I'd say go with the GR listing, or whatever the author... who is, of course, the ultimate authority! ...allows on her/his blog.

Another example would be Sookie Stackhouse/Southern Vampire (well...those are both "S" so it wouldn't make much difference in the list, but hey....)

You did read the memo at the top...and I remember swearing right along with you...lol! They ARE irresistable!


message 50: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23919 comments But they are twisted here, not a straight A-Z list! That's what makes it fun. LOL.
