I just want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who decided to participate in the Don’t Let It End Reading Challenge with me these past five months. Given my issues with finishing series, I wasn’t sure anyone would be interested in joining me in my quest to tackle those series-ending books.
You are all so amazing! So, thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
And you did so much better than I did. I tried. I really did. But I couldn’t seem to overcome the hurdle and say goodbye to a few series I wanted to say goodbye to. Though I did say goodbye to eight others. Even though I’ve only managed to review half of them.
WITH ALL MY SOUL by Rachel Vincent

A TOUCH MENACING by Leah Clifford
RISE by Anna Carey
UNBREAKABLE by Elizabeth Norris
GODDESS by Josephine Angelini
DANCE OF THE RED DEATH by Bethany Griffin
IF I SHOULD DIE by Amy Plum
I would have liked to have read ten series-ending books. And that almost happened. But I’d read FINALE by Becca Fitzpatrick two days before the challenge began. I couldn’t wait. And a book I thought was a series-ending book turns out not to have been – THE GIRL WITH THE IRON TOUCH by Kady Cross.
Some day I’ll have to challenge myself again so that I finally do read DARKEST MERCY by Melissa Marr, FORETOLD by Jana Oliver, CLOCKWORK PRINCESS by Cassandra Clare and BOUNDLESS by Cynthia Hand. Maybe that day will be next February, with a new challenge. Though I really hope I get the courage to read those books sooner.
While my challenge wasn’t the ginormous success I’d wanted it to be, it wasn’t a total fail. But for some of you, it was an amazing success.
