Summer of Series Challenge

My TBR always has enough books to fill a black hole, and sometimes reading a lot of those books is hard because I need to prioritize review books first, and personal and pleasure books second. But then a reading challenge comes along that allows me to bump some books up on the priority list, and I have to say that the challenge is accepted. Hence the Summer of Series challenge, hosted by the uber cool Danielle at Love at First Page and Lili at Lili's Reflections!

The challenge: to read one series of at least three books during June, July, and August (all the fancy schematics and rules can be found on the hosts' pages). And while I really need to finish a lot of series, there are a few I really want to start. I thought I could do one of two things: pick books I already own so that I could kill two birds with one stone, and/or use the library and assume I can get all the books I need and won't have major late fees (which I maybe have now). I ended up going with a mix and doing a tentative list, because I try to do some mood reading, and I don't know what books I'll have on hand and how busy I'll be.

AND SO, this will be the summer of these possible series:

Weather Warden series by Rachel Caine
Graceling trilogy by Kristin Cashore
Unearthly trilogy by Cynthia Hand
Defiance trilogy by C.J. Redwine
Something Strange and Deadly trilogy by Susan Dennard
Legend trilogy by Marie Lu
The Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken
Alice in Zombieland trilogy by Gena Showalter
Raised by Wolves trilogy by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta

You're probably thinking that's a lot of series--and it is! There's no way I'd be able to get all these read in three months, at least not with all the other books I have to read, so I'm leaving what series I will read up to you. Since the Weather Warden series is nine books, I'll be reading three each month, but I still need three more trilogies to add to the list. So tell me which one you think I should read most!

What series should I read?
Something Strange and Deadly
The Darkest Minds
Alice in Zombieland
Raised by Wolves
Lumatere Chronicles
Poll Maker

Are you joining in on all the fun the Summer of Series challenge will bring, and if so, what series do you plan to get read?


  1. Thank you for joining us!

    The Lumatere Chronicles will be my June binge! I highly recommend SOMETHING STRANGE AND DEADLY and GRACELING!

  2. So happy you're joining us! My vote definitely goes to Lumatere, but I'm reading Defiance in July, too. :)
