Barbara ★ | 2504 comments If you go here, you will see that I am currently reading various series' from 208 authors. Some only have one series going while others have 2,3,4 or even 5 series going on. And this is only for paranormal authors. I also have a tracker for mystery and romance authors.

Needless to say, I have tons of on-going series so I decided to try to finish the ones that only have ONE book remaining to end the series. it's not exactly a challenge that anyone can join but if you would like to do a buddy read for any of the books listed, please PM me and I will be thrilled to have a buddy who will force me to finally read a specific book on this list.

Most of these books are the concluding book in the series. However, a few of them are book 2 or even 1 in the series in which I've read all the others but managed to miss one. If you know for a fact that a book I've listed is NOT the last in the series, please let me know so that I can remove it from the list. Thanks.

I haven't decided when I will start this challenge (though it will probably be January 2012) but the duration starts with the first book read.

Good Luck


message 4: by Barbara ★ (new)

Barbara ★ | 2504 comments thanks. It will make a nice dent in my TBR so hopefully I'll read them all.

I might use this idea for a self challenge for me


Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) I like this idea, I am headed out of town for a wedding, but I plan to make up a list when I get back and have time to sit down to do make one up.


message 8: by Barbara ★ (new)

Barbara ★ | 2504 comments Please feel free to steal this idea. My series list has become more unmanageable than my TBR so I hope to clear some of them up so I can add new ones, of course.

I keep telling myself I need to finish some series before I start new ones but it doesn't work


message 10: by Barbara ★ (new)

Barbara ★ | 2504 comments No it really doesn't because new ones sound so exciting.

Lizz (Beer, Books and Boos) | 3560 comments Mod
Yeah I just start two last week 13 to Life and The Devouring


message 12: by Barbara ★ (new)

Barbara ★ | 2504 comments Never head of either one. I may have to check them out. On second thought I better not or I'll be adding more books to Mt TBR.

lol they are very good


message 14: by Dawn (Kat N Hat) (new)

Dawn (Kat N Hat) (katnhat) Ok here is my list.

I did books that I only have a few to finish the series. I didn't have many that had only one.


0/12 done

The League- Born of Shadows- Sherrilyn Kenyon
Dark Hunter- Stroke of Midnight- Sherrilyn Kenyon
Aisling Grey- ? & Holy Smokes- Katie MacAlister
Night Huntress- At Graves End, Destined for an Early Grave, This Side of the Grave- Jeaniene Frost
Love at Stake- Eat Prey Love, Vamipre Mine, Sexiest Vampire Alive,- Kerrelyn Sparks
Brotherhood/MacAllister- Born in sin, Taming the Scotsman- Kinley MacGregor


message 15: by Barbara ★ (new)

Barbara ★ | 2504 comments Wow except for Aisling Grey and Kinley MacGregor which I've read, I am currently reading all of these series. Well not really "currently" but I am in the middle of all of these.

I have trouble reading an entire series through, heck I have trouble reading two in a row so no matter how good a series, I forget about it when new ones appear. That's how I have so many with only 1 left. Hopefully I'll clear these up only to discover more with 1 or 2 remaining. It's a vicious circle.


message 16: by southpaw285 (new)

southpaw285 Wow, Barbara. This is a very neat challenge. I wish I could join you, but most of mine, I'm in the middle of the series and a very long way from the last book.

Good luck with your challenge.

Barbara ★ | 2504 comments Oh well, guess I just really didn't want to read these books.


message 20: by Barbara ★ (last edited Mar 21, 2013 08:32AM) (new)
