Don’t Let It End Reading Challenge Begins
If you’re just visiting here now and have no idea what this challenge is about, CLICK HERE for the post with all the details. It’s not too late to sign up!
For those of you who have signed up to be a part of the challenge with me THANK YOU SO MUCH! You are very, very brave. Way braver than I am.
I am still kicking myself for coming up with this idea… and we’ll see just how well I do by the time Bastille Day rolls around. I have a feeling it will be a lot harder to say goodbye the more times I do it over these next five months. In fact, I tested the waters and read a series ending book just last week and it was HARD to say goodbye. I know it won’t get any easier.
But I am committed to this challenge, even if I only end up finishing five series over the next five months. I have a feeling those of you who have signed up will be WAY more successful than I am.
The challenge starts today, so it’s now officially time to pick up those final books in the series you’ve been reluctant to read and start reading. Any books read prior to today can’t be counted. But I would love to hear which book you’re starting the challenge with, so feel free to leave a comment!
My plan is to start off this challenge with Rachel Vincent’s WITH ALL MY SOUL, which may just destroy me before this challenge has barely begun. I am so not ready to say goodbye to Tod, Kaylee, Nash or Avari. Sabine? Yeah, I’m okay with saying goodbye to her… though I actually grew to like her in BEFORE I WAKE.
When you’ve read the book and shared your thoughts online – whether on Goodreads, Facebook or your blog, stop back and leave a link in the Linky. At the end of the month I’ll throw those names into Random and choose ONE WINNER for TWO Series Ending Books of YOUR Choice.
The more books you link up each month means the more chances to win. But more than that it means you’ve finally mustered up the courage to say goodbye to a favorite series!
For those of you who signed up prior to the start of the event, as I mentioned in the sign-up post, there was a giveaway for a Series Ending Book of Your Choice to THREE Winners. I’ve thrown all the names into Random, with the extra entries for those who created a post and…
Congratulations to Tizzy @ Creative Therapy, Lis @ The Reader Lines and Jen & Patricia @ Book Exhibitionism. You’ve each won a Series Ending Book of Your Choice that I’ll order from Amazon or The Book Depository depending upon your location.
Please send me an email with your book of choice and address details!
I wish you the best of luck in this challenge. I know it won’t be easy… believe me I know! And I hope that finally saying goodbye to some of those series that linger, or taking a chance and saying goodbye to a series that is ending now, will be easier than you thought, that the goodbye won’t be filled with too much pain and sorrow and that it will free you up to discover brand new series you’ve been just dying to dive into!
Happy… I hope… reading!
