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!
To be a participant in this challenge you don’t have to read a series-ending book each month of the challenge. But if you do, and leave your links, you’ll have that many fewer series-ending books on your TBR pile and you’ll get an entry for each review link into the current month’s giveaway for a book of your choice to one winner.
And for those of you who have signed up and made it through month one…
I am so excited to see that there are a few brave readers who managed to dive into those series-ending books. And at least one who managed to read SIX series-ending books. Wow. That is awesome!
While I may have only done half that number, I know it won’t continue for the four remaining months of this challenge. Because with each book’s ending it is getting harder and harder for me to go on tackling those series concluding books.
And I really don’t want any of these series to end. Ever.
Okay, well may not ever, but for a long, long time. Especially not The Infernal Devices which is ending next week. Which I will force myself to read. Because, while I don’t want the series to end, I don’t want to risk hearing about how it ends before I’ve had a chance to discover it for myself. So I plan on taking the plunge next week.
The three books I’ve read for the challenge so far are…
And while I haven’t posted reviews for any of them just yet, my review for A TOUCH MENACING will be posted next week, my review for WITH ALL MY SOUL will be posted on its release date and my review for AFTERGLOW will be written after a second read and posted closer to its release.
The books I hope to read in this second month of the challenge are CLOCKWORK PRINCESS by Cassandra Clare and FORETOLD by Jana Oliver. And depending on when I receive RISE by Anna Carey for the Epic Reads Challenge, I might be reading that series-ending book too.
What books are you
looking forward to dreading the ending of during this second month of the challenge? I’d love to know!
Just a reminder of what to do….
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 this second month of the challenge I’ll throw the names into Random and choose a winner for ONE series ending book of your choice.
The more books you link up each month means more chances to win. And it also means you’ve managed to overcome any fears of seeing your favorite series end. Which is a good thing. Right?!?
The winner for this month’s Don’t Let It End Reading Challenge Book of Your Choice is….
Lena Reve of Between Fantasy and Reality
Congratulations! You’ve won TWO series-ending books of your choice. Please email me with your books of choice and your address and I’ll order them from Amazon or The Book Depository – or pre-order them if they’re not yet released.
The best of luck to you in this second month of the Don’t Let It End Reading Challenge. I hope the challenge is getting easier, not harder. And I hope you’re not as terrified of seeing how The Infernal Devices ends as I am.
This month’s challenge ends on April 13th and the Month Three post will go up on April 14th. I wish all your series-ending reads to end happily… or at least be bitter-sweet… and most definitely not end on the edge of a cliff.
