The Series Catch-Up Challenge is being hosted by Brittany at The Book Addict's Guide. The goal is to try and complete as many series as you can between 1st November and 31st December 2012, posting reviews for those books you read as you go. It's probably a good idea for me to do this challenge as I am so far behind on my series reading, and I have a really bad habit of starting series and then never finishing them as I outlined here.
I'm not going to attempt to read all of the series on that list, because that is impossible in this time frame - though when I was planning this post earlier I was thinking "hey, I could read all the things! No, what am I thinking, I could only do that if I didn't work or do other things. Be reasonable and pick a few books, a few". So that's what I'm doing, based partly on how many books I have left to read in the series and how high up my list it.
Over the course of the challenge I plan to finish the following series:
- Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (2 to go)
- Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness (I'm going to have to reread the 1st one)
- Gemma Doyle by Libba Bray (again, some rereading is needed, this time of the first two - not that that's a hardship)
I did want to put more down but that is 8 books, some of which are quite long, so I'll just say: I also hope to read EITHER The Hunger Games OR The Demon's Lexicon OR Dream Catcher but if I don't I'm not going to consider that a fail. Those are for if I manage to get through the 8 above in time.
And I'm not including my beloved Lymond in this because those books are long and complex and I want to savour them/spend a weekend lolling in bed drinking too much coffee and reading as much as I can.
So, there, that's my challenge. Maybe I'll get something done with the many books in my room.
