Reading Challenge #6 ~ Sequential Series

If you are on GoodReads, then you know there are TONS of challenges out there, designed to help you get reading and help you choose your next read. I'm going to have a series of challenges to get you reading and focused on certain books to read.

This is a Sequential Series challenge.

In this challenge, you will chose books based on the following. You may choose any series books that give you at least 4 books in series sequential order. The books MUST be from different series. Basically you are looking to read the 1st book in a series from one series, 2nd book from a different series, 3rd book in the series from another series, and 4th book in yet another series.

So, you could do something like this ~

  • 1st Book in a series ~ The Sorcerer's Stone by JKR
  • 2nd Book in a series ~ Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
  • 3rd Book in a series ~ Reached by Allie Condie
  • 4th Book in a series ~ Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer

The books do not have to be 1-4, they can be 6-9 if you prefer, but they must be together in a sequential order, so no books that are 2, 12, 18, 24. NO re-reads, they must be all new books to you, and NO books in the same series. They must all be from different series AND authors.

Only books completed on or after 7/24/14 accepted.

As with all my Reading swaps, I'm no longer going to specify any certain questions you have to answer just make the swap is long, not just "I like this". Those will be left for our postcard swaps. Write at least 4 pages to tell your partner all about it, without giving details away, your thoughts and opinions on the book and anything else you can think of. That is just 1 page per book.

With multiple requests to lengthen the challenges, these will now run 2 months, plus the signup time. Hopefully this will appeal to more of you. You can start reading now.

Here are some questions to help you, if you aren't sure what to write. You can use any or none of these, as long as your swap length is the full 4 pages by hand and 2 if typed.

  • What was the book about?
  • Did you like or dislike it?
  • Who was your favorite character?
  • What was your favorite part? What was your least favorite?
  • Have you read any other books by this author?
  • Would you read any others because of this book?
  • Were there any situations or characters in the book that you identified with? How?
  • Did you like the book from the beginning or did it take you a while to get into it?
  • Would you change anything about the book?
  • Would you recommend this book to other readers?
  • What surprised you the most about the book?
  • What is the significance of the title? Would you have given the book a different title? If yes, what is your title?
  • Would you ask the author a question if you could? What would you ask?

Bonus ~ read more than 4 books in Sequential Series order
