Seriously Series Reading Challenge

SeriouslySeries02Okay, as if I needed another incentive to read more, right? Well, Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal and Amanda @ On A Book Bender have such such fun and creative ways to make reading even more fun that I just had to participate. I guess it shouldn’t have been a big surprise when I realized exactly how many series that I have left unread over the past year. There is no possible way that I can finish them all… at least I don’t think so, but I’m gonna have fun trying 😉

I’ve decided to only focus on series that I started before 2013, mainly because that was daunting enough. (Yeah, that ship sailed… I started a couple of series in 2013 that I just had to add to the list – this, by the way, should come as no surprise to ANYONE – Nor should anyone be surprised by the fact that I have also added re-reads to the list.) There are 3 categories to choose from. You can visit either Amanda or Kelly’s post for the nitty gritty details.

So, what series did I start in 2012 and not finish…. or even come close to catching up on? AND – what series have I started in 2013 and have been plugging away at? AND – what series have I started re-reading because I just couldn’t stay away from them any longer? You can find the list below (in no particular order.) The books that I’ve already read in the series are linked to the review. I’ll have a progress page with the same info and link the books as I finish them. How far am I planning on getting? I have absolutely no idea. *sigh* For now, any progress I make will be an accomplishment. Since I probably should have a goal however, I’ll shoot for the second level, which is to complete or catch up on 7-12 series – which would make me Seriously Serious. We shall see.

I wasn’t planning on adding this one to the list either, but since I’m already reading it for the Elemental Assassin Read-A-Long I decided to go ahead and multi-task. 😉

Books left or currently scheduled in the series

Series Started in 2013

Yep, as if this list wasn’t long enough, I’ve found myself getting hooked on even more books that belong to series this year. I really wasn’t going to add them but then I thought ‘What the heck?’ If I’m gonna read them, I might as well add them. I’m sure that this list is going to grow as well, so stay tuned!

Here’s another one that I had no intentions of adding to my list. The thing is, I have been steadily reading every book in the series, so I figured, why not get credit for it, right?

  • Lust for Life #4

2013 Series Re-Reads

No, it wasn’t planned, but really, no one should be surprised. Every once in a while I just have to pick up an ‘old friend’ and start the journey over. I have no idea how many I’ll pick up. Since I didn’t start this venture until July, I’m thinking I’ll be lucky to make it through just a couple of re-reads, but you never know. Stay tuned!

Black Dagger Brotherhood by J.R. Ward

Alright, I think I’ll stop there. Sad thing is, I still have even more series that I’ve started and not finished. Who knew? I guess I should thank Kelly and Amanda for bringing this to my attention. Will I finish all of them? Probably not, but I plan to put a huge dent in them regardless. Stay tuned… it’s going to be an interesting ‘Seriously Series’ year!

    • Thanks! Hopefully it will keep me organized too. 🙂 The really sad part is, I could have added a lot more to the list. Yikes! Can’t wait to start crossing some of these off my list. Thanks for hosting – this was a simply brilliant idea!

  1. Woohoo! Once you actually write it up, it is quite shaming. I’m going to work on mine this weekend. We bother going to be in detention together till we get our Soul Screamers & White Cat homework done 😀

    • Yes, and the sad part is this list doesn’t even include the given reads from series that will have releases in 2013. [Lover At Last (BDB), Clockwork Princess (Infernal Devices), Up From the Grave (Night Huntress) and Twice Tempted (Night Prince) to name a few.] I knew I would read those with no incentive what-so-ever so I didn’t include them. And yes, I am hanging my head in shame over my delay in reading the rest of the Soul Screamers and Curse Workers series. Detention may in fact be in order. 😉

    • Why thank you 😉

      As for Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor, I chalk that one up to not paying attention when requesting review copies. I’ve been meaning to catch up with the rest of the series since I realized I had started at the end. Thanks to you and Amanda I have now been given the perfect incentive.
