2012 Finish the Series Reading Challenge

Well, as soon as I saw this challenge I knew it was perfect for me! I am so bad at starting a series and never finishing it. In fact I started this blog with the hope that it would encourage me to complete a few more series - so with the help of this challenge I should be cruising through all my unfinished series!

Here are the rules:

1) All books that are part of a continuing series qualify (i.e. Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove, Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum, James Patterson's Alex Cross, etc. etc.)

2) It doesn't matter if you have 1 or 10 books in a series to complete it, it qualifies (i.e. if you only need to read one more Sookie Stackhouse book to complete the goal, that's fine) The goal is to complete a series from wherever you are up to until the last published book.

3) The qualification period is January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012. Books must be read during this time frame to count.

4) Take the button above and post about it. Use the Mr. Linky below to sign up, but make sure you link it directly to your post about this challenge.

5) If you don't have a blog, that's fine. Just leave a comment to sign up and tell us what you are reading.

6) Any format of book counts - audio, ebook, etc.

7) You should choose the series you want to finish before the challenge begins, but it isn't necessary. It's fine to change series during the year - as long as you complete whichever series it is.

8) Choose a level....
Level 1 - Complete 1 series.
Level 2 - Complete 2 series.
Level 3 - Complete 3 or more series.

Of course, I have decided to go for level three to try and complete three or more series. During 2012 I am going to try and complete the following series:

1) Morganville Vampire by Rachel Caine (Only 1 left to read)
A. Last Breath

2) Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare (2 to read)
A. City of Glass
B. City of Fallen Angels

3) Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris (7 to read)
A. Dead as a Doornail
B. Definitely Dead
C. All Together Dead
D. From Dead to Worse
E. Dead and Gone
F. Dead in the Family
G. Dead Reckoning

4) Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (2 to read)
A. Spirit Bound
B. Last Sacrifice

5) Lords of the Underworld by Gena Showalter (5 to read)
A. The Darkest Whisper
B. The Darkest Passion
C. The Darkest Lie
D. The Darkest Secret
E. The Darkest Surrender

Samual - I can't wait to find out how the VA series finishes! I've been meaning to finish the series for ages and hopefully this will push me into doing it :)

Jenny - It is a lot of series but then I only read books that are part of a series so it means I have more to finish up ;)

Yvonne - Thanks, I'm really looking forward to taking part in this challenge :)

Raine - Thanks :)
