I did a post about all the series I am currently reading about a year ago here.
Last year I had 23 series on the go – including rereads and those I caught up with. Now it’s looking VERY different!
Number of series I caught up with in October 2017: 9

—> This is the result of me starting a couple of new series this year. And authors still not having published new books. I am looking at you, Pat, George and Scott!
Series I was re-reading in October 2017: 5
Series I am re-reading in October 2018: 2
—> I dropped the Malazan Book of the Fallen, the Harry Potter series (after part 6) and others. I am still re-reading the Discworld series as well as The Sword of Shadows by J. V. Jones.
I am planning to start a whole Re-Read of Robin Hobb’s books. Just have to find the version of Assassin’s Apprentice, that I like. I am so upset I sold all of my books 5 years ago!

–> That is not very much. I dropped a big number of series that I am not interested enough in anymore. Only the really good ones deserved to stay. If I was reluctant to get the next part, that was it.
It doesn’t look that different. It’s still 20 series on the go. The main difference to last year though is that I am caught up with most of them! Time to start some new series? It sure is! But now I am feeling like finishing the 4 I am having on the go right now. Maybe that’s a good End of the Year Challenge?
