2019 challenges

In-progress series


As part of the TackleThatTBR readathon recently, Kayleigh posted a list of all her on-the-go series and it got me thinking about my own, so I decided to try listing them.  This list and the sheer amount of in-progress series I’ve got led to the creation of the Serial Reader Challenge because as you can no doubt see, there are TONNES here.  Sadly I have a tendency to put off reading sequels either because I can’t quite remember what happened in the first books or because I have a new shiny series to distract me, but my big aim for 2019 is to get as many of these as I can finished! They’re in order of how many books I need to read to catch up, rather than any kind of priority, so I’d love your thoughts on which I should read first or which I should potentially consider scrapping off my list altogether.
