I have started to read a couple of series and never finished them. One of the series (Twilight), I really did not like the first book all that much. The second series (The Vampire Huntress), I have not continues because I have been to busy reading other things. I also own two of the three books from Octavia Butler's Xenogenesis series, I just haven't gotten around to read them. This challenge will help me complete both the Twilight series and the Xenogenesis series. Since there are so many books in The Vampire Huntress series I have only committed up reading five books.
It’s really simple! And for the purpose of this challenge a series is defined as at least 3 related books. I typically read romance but for this challenge any genre is welcome. So this can be done in conjunction with any other challenge. AllAboutRomance.com and Fantasticfiction.com are good resources for finding series!
1. Read books in series/trilogies/related by author. (Julie Garwood’s Lion’s Lady, Castles, The Gift are related.) For a series to count you must read each one during this calendar year. (Rereads and audio books welcome!) If you started a series previously only the titles read after 01/01/09 will count for this challenge. In a perfect world we would all start and finish each book series after 01/01/09.
2. The Challenge will begin January 1st and last until December 31st 2009.
3. Post your list on your blog and link it back to this post.

Your list is not something, you need to decide in advance. Please add as you go! Or post and update your list here. If you do it here, then please go to my blog and post a comment on the Serial Readers Challenge post reminding me that you are participating in this group discussion so that I'll check here when it comes time to award prizes!
4. Please rate and review each title on your blog or in this discussion. When you do so, please label it SRC or Serial Readers Challenge so we can all read your reviews and maybe be inspired to try a new series for ourselves.
5. There will be prizes! Woo Hoo! Some of the prizes may be simple online trophies, and some will be book give-aways. (Titles to be determined) Prizes will be given for most books read, most # series read, most pages read, and some maybe at random! (my favorite kind!! Yay!)
6. To wrap up the challenge next winter, comment to this post linking your wrap-up post by December 31! Prizes will be awarded January 2010!
