All Series, All Summer

All Series, All Summer was created by Amanda from On a Book Bender and Kelly from Reading the Paranormal, to follow updates from them and others make sure you check the #SeriesSummer tag on Twitter! 
Kelly explain exactly what it is about in a few short sentences below:

"Amanda (my partner in crime in all things) and I are working on clearing out some of our currently languishing series. In other words, we have all these books we own in various series and we weren't reading them. So. My goal for All Series, All Summer is to make a SERIOUS dent in my half-read series before starting any new ones. You're welcome to join us. There is no sign up, no pressure, no check-ins, no anything except a driving need to have a reason to push these books to the top of our respective TBR piles."

Perfect huh? Yes.

In preporation for this task at hand, and my vlog that I'll upload tomorrow titled "My love/hate relationship with series", I went through every book I owned and sorted through which we were series. I initially wanted to read every book owned that was part of a series but it seemed they made up about 75% of my collection, so I slowly dwindled down the list to the ones that I am part of the way through, want to re-read and/or have a book mark in the first book from years and years ago! I'm super happy with this task so without further ado below I shall list the series and what I hope to get through.

 To be read or reread series:


  1. This is such a great idea!


    1. Its great isn't it, I mean I knew I had series to get too but seeing them in a list is definitely going to help.

  2. You have some good ones here!
    We're so glad you're joining us!
    Read read read!

    1. I just hope I can get through them all along with every other book I want to read :P

  3. I liked the third one in the Millennium series. No Insurgent for you? Good luck!

    1. I have no idea why I haven't read it yet, I bought them all together as well! I am dying to get my hands on Insurgent though :D

  4. Good luck, Lauren!
    I'm aiming to knock out some of my series before starting any new ones. =)
