2014 Series Challenge: Details + Current Progress

This reading challenge is hosted by Read. Sleep. Repeat.

The is The Reading Hedgehog's first "official" reading challenge! I've been wanting to do one of these for a while - beyond the yearly "read so many books" challenge I do on Goodreads, as well as the yearly "a-z challenge" one of my book clubs does. And besides, since I made May my official "catching up on series" month, this yearly challenge will be perfect! Give me some extra motivation!

So, here are the rules:

  • You have to FINISH the series.
  • If the series isn't complete yet, or will not be completed before December 1st, 2014, read up to the most recent book in said series.
  • Novellas count, but are optional.
  • If you decide to break up with a series after Book #1, it does not count!
  • You do not have to START the series in 2014, you just have to FINISH it in 2014.
  • Series that you started prior to 2014 are fine as long as you FINISH the series in 2014.
  • The series has to have at least 2 books out prior to December 1st, 2014.
  • Proof that you finished the book is required. It could be a full review, a mini review, or a rating with a few lines.
  • DNFs do not count. PERIOD.
There are four prizes: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Visit Read. Sleep. Repeat. to get a full listing of all the goodies that come with each prize!! I'm going ambitious: I'm aiming for the gold medal. I can read 7-11 series in one year, right? I've already done 8! With luck, I may even aim for the Platinum. :-)

Every third Saturday, I will keep you guys updated on my progress! But as of right now, this what it looks like:

The Ascendance Trilogy by Jennifer A Nielsen
Ashfall Trilogy by Mike Mullin
Spellcaster Series by Claudia Gray
The Archived Series by Victoria Schwab
Starters & Enders by Lissa Price
The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Maryrose Wood
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
The Woodcutter Sisters by Alethea Kontis


  1. You've done well so far, that's a lot of series. I wanted to start Lunar Chronicles, couldn't figure out if they counted or not because they aren't finished, but I think they do. I'll definitely be making an effort to get through all the series I've bought but haven't read yet, The Archived and The Unbound are on there too. Good luck! :)

    1. THE LUNAR CHRONICLES would count because you can read up to the most currently published volume. CRESS was published in February and the next one won't be out until 2015, so that would be the most current one.

  2. Sounds cool! Best of luck with your reading! I bet you'll get to Platinum =)

    1. Now that I've made a list of the series I need and want to do for this challenge, I decided that I'm going to aim for the Platinum. It's a fun challenge; you should join, even if it's unofficial. :)
