2014 And So It Ends Reading Challenge

This challenge is being hosted by Nicole @ The Reader's Antidote.

Here are the details copied from Nicole's blog:
2014 And So It Ends Reading Challenge

What are the rules of this challenge?

Your goal is to read at least seven (7) books that are the final ones in the series that come out any year, but that you have read in 2014. To "participate," you need a blog or a Goodreads account. Your reviews need to be written in English. I'm going to try to write up a post at the end of every three months where everyone participating can comment with their reviews for these books and we can all check them out!

What books are on the EotSC list?

The final book published in a YA series. It has to be in a series, not an author's third or fourth standalone, etc. I have made a Goodreads group for this challenge, which has a list of books that I believe will count for the challenge. This list may not be accurate as the publishers may not have announced that there is another book in the series yet. If there is an error, I will delete the book and that book will not count for the challenge anymore. I know this is slightly haphazard but hopefully it won't be too much of a problem.

Why should you join this challenge?

Because it's awesome? One of the best things about reading is getting to that final book in a series. This is what it's all come down to. It's the ending of a journey that you've waited at least a year to finish, and this is your chance. One of the reasons I wanted to do this challenge is that I know some people hold off on the final books of the series because they don't want to see it end. This is to push all of to that end.

How long does the challenge run?

Any books read from January 1st, 2014 - December 31st, 2014 count for this challenge. This means that if you read the final book in a series before January 1st or after December 31st, then it doesn't count. This also means ARCs that you may have already read this past year that aren't published until 2014.

What should you do if you're an author coming out with the final novel in your series?

I would love to feature your book on the challenge list! Just make sure it fits within the rules of this challenge. Please e-mail me [mainardi(dot)nicole(at)gmail(dot)com] or comment on the group page and let me know if you want your book put on the list.
