The Great Series Read Project

I have a problem.

And be honest with me…you have this problem too.

We see a new book series that looks awesome as hell, read the first book, and then get distracted by some new series that comes out (like a dog chasing a squirrel) and we never get around to finishing the series. Or maybe we don’t finish due to financial issues or some other reason. But we all do it. Don’t pretend you don’t. Yeah I know some of you wait until a series is finished and binge the whole thing, but not all of you. Not most of you.

And I don’t know about you, but I ALWAYS intend to go back and finish these series that I’ve neglected. Sometimes I do. Many times I don’t.

You know what I’ve been missing? Something to motivate me other than guilt. That is until Caitlin G. launched The Great Series Read Project over on her blog Realms of My Mind. Caitlin compiled a list of the series she’s started but not finished, then added series she’s completed or is up to date on, and then added some “candidate” series for the future. Her plan is to read one book a month back-to-back until she completes a series. Once she posted about it on her blog I told her I was stealing the idea. Since then Imyril over at There’s Always Room For One MoreLisa from Dear Geek Place, and Susy over at Susy’s Cozy World have joined the project. Below are links to their lists…

Imyrl (There’s Always Room For One More): Introducing The Great Series Read Project
Lisa (Dear Geek Place): The Great Series Read Project
Susy (Susy’s Cozy World): The Great Series Read Project!

What follows is my list of Series In Progress, and Up To Date Series. The series (sorted by series title) and books I’ve read are in bold. If I’ve written a review of the book it is linked in the title.

The Series In Progress are series I’ve started but not finished where there are one or more books remaining to be read that have already been published. The Up To Date Series are series that I’m up to date on where there are additional books remaining to be published. At a later date I’ll be adding a list of Completed Series, DNF’d Series, and Candidate Series I want to start. Whew.

So, here’s the list as it stands today. Let me know if you join The Great Series Read and let’s see what our lists have in common.
