2013 Sequel Reading Challenge



This is another one hosted by Auntie Spinelli Reads. It is a challenge that includes all books after the first one in a series.

The goal: To read as many sequels as you can. You set your goal at whatever number works for you.

My sequel goal will be 25 for the year~

In June:

Fledge (I Am Just Junco #2) by J.A. Huss

I'm already up to 20 for the year on this one, so I think I have it in the bag.



I have joined the 2013 Book Bingo Reading Challenge and track my progress every three months.

Anne from Creativity’s Corner and Kristilyn from Reading in Winter are hosting 2013 Book Bingo.

This is my scorecard for my progress up to July:


I'm working on the X in the middle and the Square around the edge. I almost have my 'X' - I just need to complete my 'Free Square'. The way we get our free square is someone else who is doing the challenge tells you a book to read for that one, and R.A. Desilets has given me The Darkest Minds to read for my free square.

  2. Wow, I'm only doing two reading challenges, the Goodreads challenge and the Summer Reading Program at my public library. You have to read 5 books during the summer and write a little something on each one and then you get prizes! They boys have their own challenges, but they have to read 10 books. John's is already complete, but Will's books are longer.


    Great job, Jaclyn!!

    Jaclyn, once again I'm so very impressed with how well you're doing with your challenges. I'm participating in 3 challenges and I've really only accomplished something for the GR one...and I'm behind on it! Ugh! I hope to catch up starting in August. :) Congrats on doing so well...you should be proud of yourself! :)

  4. I think I overshot with my Goodreads Challenge actually - I'm 10 books behind right now. Hopefully I can catch up. I hope your boys are enjoying theirs!

  5. I'm behind on the Goodreads Challenge as well. I'm hoping I can eventually catch up on that one too. Don't think I will pledge so many books next year. Thank you :D

  7. Great job, Jaclyn! I thought I'd be doing a lot better with the Sequel Challenge, but I think I've ended up starting more series than I've continued, lol.

  8. I don't blame you at all! Nothing wrong with that. I just can't let my old ones go. I still have some follow-ups that are already out in series that I really want to get to, but haven't yet. Thank you so much for stopping by :D

I love comments and read every one of them! Since they are an award in themselves, this is an award-free blog. Thank you though for the consideration!
