I’m pretty terrible about keeping up with reading challenges. Ones like Beat the Backlist (which is hosted here on NovelKnight) work for me because they’re year-long and the challenge itself is less focused on reading specific books. And as a mood reader, challenges with prompts. . . don’t end well XD. Or I get super busy and no longer have time to do a shorter challenge (even month-long ones).
Alright, so anyway, I’ll be doing Beat the Backlist (would probably be awkward not doing the challenge you’re hosting, right?) AND I just came across this challenge, A Series a Month, hosted by Dani @ Dani Reviews Things!
About this challenge:
“The aim of A Series A Month is to read a series of two or more books each month. Each month’s series can be completed or ongoing as long as at least two books are out. Most importantly, the series should be new to you, meaning you have yet to read the first book. (There’s already another reading challenge for completing series.)”
There’s also a points system and prizes which is cool! It’s great as extra motivation to read the series each month!
The (Potential) TBR
I’m going to be merging this challenge with Beat the Backlist as there are a lot of series I have sitting on my shelves that I really want to read and just haven’t gotten around to yet. I haven’t picked the specific series that I plan to read for the coming year so I came up with a list of a few I have on my shelves!
(It’s a bit daunting. . . and surprising. . . how many unread series I actually own. Clearly I need to go on a MAJOR book buying ban)
So here are 12 potential series I’d like to read this year. May or may not stick with them when it comes down to it (and definitely have plenty more to choose from):
- Dark Sword series by Donna Grant
- Dark Warriors series by Donna Grant
- Silver trilogy by Kerstin Gier
- Night and Nothing series by Katherine Harbour
- Sky Fall series by Shannon Messenger
- Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater
- All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness
- The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson
- Inheritance Trilogy by N.K. Jemisin
- The Darkest Minds series by Alexandra Bracken
- The Young Elites series by Marie Lu
- Red Rising series by Pierce Brown
