2013 Reading Challenge: Seriously Series Reading Challenge

Posted January 12, 2013 in Event / 7 Comments

Seriously Series

This is the year I conquer my TBR pile AND read those authors I’ve been wanting to get to for some time now.  The books are on my shelves or sitting on my Kindle.  I just need the plan…

That’s where Amanda from On a Book Bender and Kelly from Reading the Paranormal come in and help the cause.  They are hosting the Seriously Series Reading Challenge for 2013.  All the details you need (really, there aren’t many) can be found HERE.

This next list will be all the series I’ve wanted to start.  I own all the first books in these series’ except for Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian, which is at the library.  I have a few more “first books” but I’m just going to start here and maybe swap some titles later.

I’m just going to list the first books in the series because I have no clue whether or not I’ll like the series enough to continue it past the first book.  We’ll see how it goes…

I really don’t think I’m going to get through all these books and series’ but I’m sure going to try.  It’s sad that a lot of these books have been sitting on my shelves for ages and really need to be read before I think about buying any more books.  At least that’s the plan at the moment.

It won’t last.

I’ll be keeping track of my reads on a page in my blog – follow along if you dare.

Ahhhh, it’s a nice plan…  sure hope I keep up with it!!





About Kristin

Kristin has to ensure she gets her minimal requirement of "happily ever after" books in between those books that contain cliffhangers and never-ending story arcs. It's for her family's sake. When not reading, she's homeshooling her 10-year old son, watching cartoons on TV, or taking a nap.

  1. Good luck with your challenge! I have a lot of series I need to catch up with, along with those I want to start as well. Such a wonderful problem to have, isn’t it?

    Also, Sherrilyn Kenyon is my FAVORITE author and I always love running into somebody who is a mutual fan. One less person to convert into a Menyon.
