Finishing the Series Reading Challenges

Happy New Year!

When I discovered book blogger reading challenges, I was going to host one this year. But before I could get info posted, I saw two more that pretty much covered what I was going to do. So I am just going to join in with them.

The first is Series IV, hosted by Secret Dreamworld of Books. The dates of this challenge are December 1, 2009 - November 30, 2010. You are supposed to pick at least two series you have to finish and read a total of four books. I've got nine books from two series on my list, so I will definitely be fine.

Royal Reviews is also hosting the Finish That Series Challenge. This one is running for all of 2010. There is no minimum or maximum number of books. You just need to complete a series you've already started. There are four levels of participitation, and I'm going with Curious - Finish 2 series.

Okay, so I am reading one book on this list already. It won't count for the second challenge, but since I need to get all these books read before the end of November to be part of both challenges, I figure that's okay, right?

So, the series I will be finishing in 2010 are:

Odelia Grey by Sue Ann Jaffarian. I have three books to read:
Thugs and Kisses
Booby Trap
Corps on the Cob

The Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley. I have six books to read:
The Problem Child
Once Upon a Crime
Magic and Other Misdemeanors
Tales from the Hood
The Everafter War
The Inside Story

Welcome to my challenge, Mark!
You're all on track for the Series IV, actually, because all I was asking was for people to read at least 4 books, no matter how many series they pick. So theoretically, you would even finish the series if you "only" read the 6 books from your second series. :-)

Misunderstood. But both these series were series I wanted to finish this year, so I figure why not list them both.

Should be fun!

Mark, I'm the last one to keep you from finishing both series ;-) I also listed more than necessary.
Have fun!
