New Reading Challenge: Sequel Spring
Hosted by Words in a Teacup

Yes, I have joined yet another reading challenge.  This one is short and will last for the Spring only.  As you may have read last year, I have started reading too many books in a series and I honestly need to finish at least some of them before I start another series.  That was last year and since that time I posted "My Incomplete Series List" the revelation with the un-Godly amount of books to be read I have added a few more, so this reading challenge is coming right on time for me.

Here are the rules
  • This challenge will run from the beginning to the end of spring: March 20th to June 20th 2014.
  • The goal is to read as many sequels as possible.
  • A “sequel” is any book that is part of a series, apart from the first one. So prequels and midquels would also count. Anything goes, the only restriction is no standalone novels and no first books in a series.
  • If we start a new series during the challenge period, the second (and third, and fourth…) book in that series will count for Sequel Spring.
So now that you have seen the rules here is my goal list.  
I have done a few things to it to help you understand my pain plan.  This list is of all the series I have started and not completed (yet).  
I have crossed out books that have turned me completely off from wanting to read more.  
I have Highlighted in Yellow the books I have read.  
All the Blue book titles are the ones I will try and complete for this challenge.  And Green will be for the books completed for the challenge
My goal will be to complete at least 4 series with a total of 7 books.  The others are just in case I finish the 4 series and have some time to keep going.  I doubt it but a girl can "Hope".
