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.
TOTAL NUMBER OF BOOKS READ FOR THIS CHALLENGE IN 2018: 3
TOTAL NUMBER OF SERIES FINISHED IN 2018 (SO FAR): 1
*Edit: I FORGOT THE DARK ARTIFICES!! Added below.
My STBF (Series to Be Finished) List
(If it is crossed out, it was already read prior to 2018)
The Chronicles of St. Mary’s by Jodi Taylor (this series does have novellas, but I don’t count those as being necessary to consider the series completely read. I may or may not still read them anyway).
