I was on the fence about joining a series/sequel catch-up type challenge since I have a lot of other goals and challenges for the year that revolve around stand-alone books and wasn't sure if I could fit it in. In the end, I decided that I won't commit to reading a whole lot of books for this challenge this year, but I want to make sure I don't forget about them completely! Maybe next year will be the year of the series and I'll go for broke, but this year I'm going to set a modest goal and aim for the level of Series Newbie and catch-up on 1-5 series. I'm not sure how everyone does this, but I'm going to include series that I haven't actually started yet, but that I own and have been meaning to read FOREVER (that's still catching-up right?). I have a lot of other books/series I could pick from, but here's my tentative choices based on what I'd most like to read now:
(shoot -- I didn't even realize The Essence was published already!)
(Also a thank you to Kay from It's a Book Life -- I found out about this challenge from her sign-up post!)
UPDATE: I will be keeping track of my progress with this challenge here.
