Read a Series in a Month Challenge


Berls and Michelle at Because Reading are hosting a reading challenge in May aimed at reading an entire series in a month!
Part of me isn't sure that this would be a good idea but I'm going for it!


The Alex Craft series has been burning a hole in my kindle for years and I just haven't gone for it yet so I'm making no more excuses and prioritising binge-reading this series for this challenge. 
It also plays nicely into my beat-the-backlist reading challenge so consider me signed up!

The Rules

Pick 1 series. Yes, just 1. Announce which series you’ve picked on your sign up post and link it back here.
Read EVERY book in the series. You don’t have to read novellas or short stories, just the core books.

Read them all between 12am (your time) May 1st and 11:59pm (your time) May 31st. They MUST be marked (on Goodreads) as started and finished in the month of May to count.

Enjoy bragging to everyone about how you’re all caught up on whatever series you read (AKA – have fun)! Use the hashtag #SeriesinaMonth

  1. Good luck. :) I bought Grave Witch a few years ago, but I never read it. I hope you love the all the books in the series.

    Happy readings! ;)

  2. Good luck with that! I read books 1-3 (or 4) but then Kalayna got sick and 4 (or 5) took years to be released. By then I was already super busy with ARCs. I want to re-read via audio and then check out the others.

    I hope you'll love it. I did!

    1. I wondered why there was such a huge gap! That explains it... Glad she's back writing them and I chose now to start!

  3. Good luck with the challenge, Nicci! Six books seems like it could actually be do-able.

  4. More power to you! I probably would have picked a short series. I hope you love it!

    1. Book one was good! Book two isn't bad so far... I'm hopeful!

  5. Good luck. I've binge read a series when I've found one that I like but there's usually only a few books.

    1. I'm all in for a series up to about 12/13 books then I back off, lol. Unless they're interconnected standalones... I'm good with those forever!

  8. I've seen this series around, but I'm not sure if it's one I want to read. I'll look for your reviews! Also, I cannot read a series in a month, no matter how much I love the series. I like to take breaks between books, so the world and characters always feel fresh and exciting! Most books in a series also have a recap aspect to them, which is less obnoxious when I'm not binge-reading. Honestly, they should do the recap at the beginning of the book, so you have the option to read it or not. If it's been awhile between books (like a year or so when you're waiting for a new one), a recap might be helpful. When you're binge-reading, the repeated information feel tedious.

    Good luck with this!!

    1. Very good points! I usually get 5/6 books into a series before I need a break but depending on the level of recap that can be 3 or 4 so... Fingers crossed this one isn't too bad!

  9. It's a nice challenge I must think about. I would go for a trilogy though.

    1. I can usually binge about 5/6 books in a series before running out of steam so I'm hopeful for his one!

  10. I've been trying to do this every month this year and failing! Trouble is I want to clear all my old urban fantasy series and get caught up with ones still going...but I'm just not in an urban fantasy mood!

    1. I understand that... I've found myself petering out around book 5 or 6 in a UF series lately which is annoying when they're about 12/13 books long! lol

      This one is only up to 6 books though so I may be in luck!
