Finishing The Series Challenge 2016
I have been working on finishing series for a few years now and I joined in with this challenge which was hosted by Bea’s Book Nook (Finishing The Series )
I signed up for the experienced challenge which meant that I aimed to finish between 3-6 series.
- Something Strange and Deadly
- The Giver quartet
- The Lynburn Legacy
- Ten Tiny Breaths
- Bad Girls Don’t Die
I did add on Bad Girls Don’t Die because I couldn’t get on with my original pick which was The Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater. I was really pleased to finish these series and I’ll definitely be looking at a similar challenge for 2017.

It’s been a great year of reading challenges which I feel really vary my reading choices. I’m hoping for more of the same in 2017.
