I'm really excited about the #SeriesLove2023 challenge. I have participated in #SeriesRead the last few years, but this is the first time I sat down and made a spread for it. These are my current series but I left room because I am planning to read several this year!! @TheSpineView @Andrew65 #bulletjournal

Andrew65 A good starting point, with some good series. I like your organisation, with plenty of space for other series to be added. Good luck with the challenge. 1mo
TheSpineView Smart to leave room for more. Good luck! 1mo
Zuhkeeyah All your bujo pages are amazing! Good luck with all your challenges. 1mo
TheAromaofBooks @Zuhkeeyah - Thank you!!! 1mo

Who would be interested in a year long challenge in 2023, #SeriesLove2023, to help us get to all our ongoing series or even target new series.

The aim would be to nominate a number of series you want to target beginning or continuing with over the year, and you would post these for 1st Jan. Then you tag #SeriesLove2023 whenever you read one of these and do an end of month post showing the books you got to from those series that month.

Andrew65 As we go through the year you could add any series you want to to your list as you find new series.

Put a post below to let me know if you are interested and if enough interest I will pull together an image for the challenge and get the ball rolling.

MatchlessMarie Ooh me!! 2mo
Clwojick Oh man, I need this. So we‘re choosing specific series before the beginning of the year? 2mo
Andrew65 @Clwojick Yes a start off list of series we want to target during the year, which you can add to or remove series from as we go through the year. I desperately need to finish some series. Must have hundreds on the go. 😂 2mo
TorieStorieS Oh I should definitely be participating in this!! I have sooo many series that I follow, plus ones that I need to catch up on! 2mo
EadieB @Andrew65 I‘m in! That sounds cool! 2mo
MoonWitch94 Ohhhh I‘m in! I have many to need to finish! 2mo
Elizabeth2 I would be interested! I have several series I want to read! 2mo
CocoReads I‘m down for that. I‘m almost current with Lucas Davenport but there are so many others…. 2mo
Texreader I‘m in 2mo
Clwojick Same. I have a separate journal to track them all, but that never stops me from starting more lol. I‘m in! 2mo
Andrew65 @Clwojick I might need several journals 😂 2mo
CoffeeNBooks I am sooooo bad about finishing series, because I get distracted by all of the other books on my shelves! So, I'd be interested- I might actually get to the many series I have but haven't read! 😁 2mo
julesG Despite having had little success with year long challenges, I'm in. Now I just need to sit down and make a list. Also, do trilogies count as series? 2mo
Andrew65 @julesG Yes trilogies count. 2mo
Ann_Reads Sure, I'll join in since I own most of the books I'd like to complete. 🙂🙂🙂 I have two series that I've read the first book in and am just now tackling the second book in each. Also, an older series on Hoopla I kinda started ignoring around book #7 that I might revisit.🙃 My 6 month no-book-purchases hiatus starts in a few days but I've plenty of books to keep me occupied. 📚 2mo
robinb I‘m a Serious Serial Specialist…😂😂😂. And it can get a little convoluted! 😳 This sounds like it would help with sorting and moving forward. But I also have NetGalley arcs that I try to keep up-to-date with. But…I can‘t resist, please sign me up. 😉 2mo
robinb @Andrew65 Can we add to the list during the year or does it need to be complete on 1/1/23? 2mo
Andrew65 @Ann_Reads It‘s quite a while since I bought any books, apart from my audiobook annual subscription, most of mine come from libraries (usually e-books). Been quite successful at managing them that way. 2mo
Andrew65 @robinb No you can add or take from the list as the year progresses to suit moods or new series you want to get to, let‘s be honest we‘re constantly finding new series. 2mo
Andrew65 @robinb Yes I want to use it to sort all my series, and a bit random at the moment. My name is Andrew and I‘m a seriesaholic! 🤓 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m in! That‘s already one of my goals for next year…finish up & continue on with some of the series I‘ve enjoyed over the years. Joy reading 😉 2mo
LiseWorks OMG yes! I have soooooo many on the go! 2mo
Laughterhp @TheSpineView has a similar challenge to this called #seriesread2023 2mo
robinb @Andrew65 Hi, Andrew. Nice to meet you. 😆 2mo
robinb @Andrew65 Perfect!! 2mo
Andrew65 @TheSpineView I‘d not seen your Series Challenge. Would this challenge clash with yours? Andrew
Thanks @Laughterhp
TheSpineView @Andrew65 2023 will be the 4th year I have hosted this challenge. I don't see a problem. People can do both if they want. #SeriesRead2023 is all about getting to series you want to read or finishing ones they have started. Sounds like yours is going to be different. 2mo
TheSpineView @Andrew65 Just had a thought. We could combine them and co-host. 2mo
Andrew65 @TheSpineView If you‘re happy for me to co-host with your baby that might be better than do two different but quite similar ones. The only difference looking at them both would be I‘d suggested people to pull together a list of series they were looking to target for the beginning of the year. Certainly don‘t want to step on your toes. 😁 Let me know what you think. (edited) 2mo
TheAromaofBooks I've been participating in @TheSpineView's challenge the last several years, but am up for tagging everyone who wants to host a similar challenge 😂 I would be happy to see them combined - I do like the added layer of listing out some targets ahead of time... not that I'm great at sticking to a list LOL 2mo
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I have several book series that I need to focus in on, so setting up a list at the beginning of the year is probably a smart move. 😅 2mo
MaGoose I'm in, I think. There are a few series I'd like to get to. Next year is as good a time as any to jump into them. 2mo
CBee @Andrew65 and @TheSpineView I‘d be interested! I very much want to continue reading Louise Penny‘s Gamache series, I‘ve only read two so far! 2mo
kwmg40 I have a lot of series on the go, but there are a few specific ones I'd like to focus on next year, so I'm in! 2mo
TheSpineView @Andrew65 I think making lists is a good idea. It gives everyone a goal(s) to work towards. I know some don't like the added pressure. So maybe it could be optional. Then those that want the extra incentive can do that and those that don't... don't have to. 2mo
Andrew65 @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Yes the list would help me focus on those series too. Most of my books are series reads but the number of series I read keeps expanding. 2mo
Andrew65 @TheSpineView All sounds good and have got a note of your email address if you‘re wanting to delete it. I‘ll send you an email tomorrow, it‘s 11 pm here. 😂 2mo
TheSpineView @Andrew65 OK. I look you your email tomorrow 2mo
DieAReader @Andrew65 @TheSpineView I love the cohost & combo idea. Count me in, either way! Many series on the go & more I haven‘t even touched yet. It will also help me with the #ReadMyRoom challenge hosted by @AkashaVampie 📚🤓♥️🥳 2mo
RainyDayReading I‘m so in! I can‘t tell you how many series I have started/how many I need to start 🙈 2mo
JessClark78 I would be interested. Next year I wanted to focus on series and trilogies I haven‘t read or finished yet. 2mo
Bookjunkie57 I had planned to dedicate a month to series next year but who says I can‘t extend it all year. 2mo
Mollyanna I‘m in! I like to the item if listing them in advance. It will help me focus…. Thanks @Andrew65 and @TheSpineView 2mo
Ruthiella I‘d be interested! Was also considering @TheSpineView ‘s challenge as well. I need that kick in the pants! (edited) 2mo
Librarybelle I‘ve been contemplating @TheSpineView ‘s challenge the last couple of years - I read a ton of series! Maybe this is a sign I should consider this…😂 Thanks, @Andrew65 @TheSpineView !! 2mo
eanderson As a lover of series, definitely count me in! 2mo
Lizpixie 🙋🏻‍♀️Me! I‘ve been doing @TheSpineView #SeriesRead challenge since it started(actually won it last year🙌)so I‘ll just add your name to my posts, no problem. Also have tons of series I need to finish! (edited) 2mo
Read4life I‘m in. Love that you two are cohosting! 2mo
Crystal83 Me!!! I have a lot series I want to work through!!! 2mo
IamIamIam I've always been intimidated by any series so I'd be interested to see what's being planned before I jump in. I'm doing a Little House buddy read with @megnews because we do one chapter at a time!! Lol 2mo
Roary47 I would love to do that to tackle some series‘ I have way too many started. 😅 2mo
BookwormAHN I'm in 😺 2mo
Tove_Reads Hah, been doing it this year already, so would be fairly easy for me, but sure, I‘ll join. I need the distraction anyway from the gruesome real murder that just happened here. 2mo
Crazeedi You know how much I love series!! So yes! 2mo
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick I make no promises, but I have a few series I should make progress on or begin entirely. 2mo
PaperbackPirate Sounds great! 2mo
Sresendez12 I‘m in! Having a plan of my series might actually help me more this year! 2mo
TheEllieMo Well, I hadn‘t thought about it, but now that you mention it, there‘s several series I‘ve got behind in, so I‘d be interested in this! 2mo
julieclair I‘m in! Love that y‘all are co-hosting. 2mo
Monica5 I'm in. I had planned on doing a Series Challenge anyway 😃 2mo
Gissy 🙋🏽‍♀️I have been doing this but haven‘t accomplished my goal this year😔 My goal for 2023 is at least to finish 10 but in most of those series I only need to read one or two books to complete the series. 2mo
Andrew65 @Gissy Good luck with your goal, hopefully this can help. 2mo
AmandaBlaze I'm interested! 2mo
janeycanuck I‘ve been meaning to pick up the Agatha Raisin books for YEARS. Count me in! 1mo
Andrew65 @janeycanuck That‘s an enjoyable series, and great to have you with us. 😍 1mo
Sapphire This is perfect! I have several series I am half way through and stalled! 1mo
Andrew65 @Sapphire Be great to have you with us 😁 1mo
Sapphire @Andrew65 thanks! I am looking forward to it and to seeing how everyone progresses and finds best of in a series! Now I am just trying to figure out if you all have a StoryGraph for this challenge or how to even do one for this type 1mo
Andrew65 @Sapphire Most I have seen so far have gone for a spreadsheet or bullet journal as with my post yesterday https://www.litsy.com/web/post/2522518
Not used storygraph so do not know if this could be used for a challenge of this type. Sure we will all got a lot more series to read from this. 😂
Sapphire @Andrew65 thanks! 1mo
Born.A.Reader I would love to finally get through some of these series on my shelf! Do I need to sign up for anything? 1mo
Andrew65 @Born.A.Reader No, but if you want you can do a post prior to 1st January sharing some of the series you would like to read in 2023 using the #SeriesLove2023 tag and tagging in me @Andrew65 and @TheSpineView, we are jointly leading on the challenge. Great to have you with us and good luck.
After that just use the tags when you complete a book. 😁
KateReadsYA I'll be joining in on this and @TheSpineView #seriesread2023 so excited. Thanks for hosting. Hoping to get some of these series finally read that I've been looking forward to. 1mo
Andrew65 @KateReadsYA Be wonderful to have you joining us Kate 😍 1mo
TheSpineView @KateReadsYA Fantastic! 📚📚📚📚 1mo

Romance novels just aren't my thing honestly. I gave this one a chance given the subject matter. It's not bad, it was just so-so for me.
