Book Challenges

In Which I Declare My Intention to Join Another 2018 Reading Challenge!!

So, remember how I keep talking about how awful I am at finishing series?

Well, I think I just found the perfect challenge for me to join!

The 2018 Finishing Series Reading Challenge is exactly as it says it is: a year-long challenge dedicated to finishing series that you have started prior to the start of 2018.

I am going to keep a list here of all the books in the series I need to read, and come back once I finish them an mark them as read.  The order of the list is does not reflect the order in which I plan to read them, but rather just the order in which I thought of them as I wrote them down.  I will also be adding them to a Goodreads list, but more for me really.

So far in total I have 12 series listed that I want to maybe finish in 2018, but since I don’t think I will be able to do all of those, I think for this challenge I am going to aim to be a B-List Series Finisher (Complete 5-8 Series).  Of the ones below, the ones I really hope to finish/catch up on are The Chronicles of St. Mary’s, The Illuminae_Files, The Nevernight Chronicles, Creatures of Light, Monsters of Verity, The Diviners, and Charlotte Holmes.  


*Edit: I FORGOT THE DARK ARTIFICES!!  Added below.

    1. Thanks! I hope your challenge goes well too! I read Ember back in 2015 when it first came out so I am definitely going to be needing a reread for it. Sadly, I need to reread a lot for this challenge. It’s not so much that I forget things, but more than I just get so nostalgic I WANT to reread them first. But also I forget things. Good luck with your challenge!
