  1. Oooo I loved the Charlie Bone series! It was a really fun read! I still have to read the last two books to see how it finished though. I guess I'll do that next yr :) Good luck on your challenge!

  2. Oh I love Charlie Bone too! I think I have either two or three to finish the series. I have them, but lost interest. My youngest son has finished the series. I also have to finish the Alex Rider series. Loved that one. I just have the last one to read. And I'm not sure if I have any left in the Artemis Fowl series to read or not. I wonder if there are any more in that one. I love that series!

    Of course there are a lot of series I haven't finished because the books haven't come out. Guess those don't count.

    Good luck Small! Challenge yourself!


  3. Oh, best of luck for you!!
    I know you'll do great! :D

  4. Mackenzie, Me too! I read the first few and then...I don't even remember. I think I got sidetracked by something else. I'd really like to return to them. Thanks for the luck!

    Heather, Alex Rider series sounds good! Artemis Fowl is another one I've always meant to read, but I haven't yet. I do own a few books in the series! I think books that haven't yet but will come out in 2012 count! Just so long as you've already started reading it.

    Alex, Thank you! This is actually one of the few challenges I think I might fail :P I'm going to try to make a dent!

  5. Not surprisingly, I don't recognize any of your series books. I thought I may not to enter this challenge because I didn't start reading series books until 2011. Most of the ones I did read are trilogies. So, I wouldn't be able to finish them. But, I guess I do have a few potentials:

    1. The Hex Hall Series
    2. The Fallen Series (I think last book is due out in 2012)
    3. The Waterfall books by Lisa T. Bergen (Those are all out, huh?)

    So maybe I should give this one a go... oh but I'm a bit chicken.

  6. Welcome to the challenge! Hope you have fun with this!

  7. I'm definitely trying to do this myself. I am making sure the only books I buy next year are part of series I have already started. I cannot possibly start any more. I hope you reach your goal :)

  8. Gina, I'm pretty sure you can count books like Hallowed as "finishing the series" because you're finished everything you can that's published. But I'm not positive. Waterfall, yes, all the book are published but we *may* be getting more (I hope!)

    Yvonne, Thank you, and thank you for hosting!

    Alice, Good luck!
