2021 Challenges

2021 Finishing the Series Reading Challenge

2021 Finishing the Series Challenge

This challenge is focused on finally finishing those series that you’ve started but not yet completed. It was previously hosted by Bea’s Book Nook, but since 2018 it’s been in the capable hands of Celebrity Readers.  I’m going for the A-List Series Finisher (9+ series) again!

January to March Link-Up
April to June Link-Up
July to September Link-Up
October to December Link-Up

2021 Finishing the Series Challenge A List

I’m not completely sure of my list but here are those I’ve already scheduled:

  1. Lucy Kincaid by Allison Brennan
  2. DI Kim Stone by Angela Marsons
  3. Morgan Dane by Melinda Leigh
  4. Kate Burkholder by Linda Castillo
  5. Charles Jenkins by Robert Dugoni
  6. In Death by J. D. Robb
  7. Black Dagger Brotherhood by J. R. Ward
  8. Brotherhood by Fire by Jaci Burton
  9. Romantic Suspense by Karen Rose
  10. Fatal by Marie Force
  11. The MacGregors by Nora Roberts


  • The challenge will run from January 1st, 2021 to December 31st, 2021.  Books must be read during this time frame to count.  Sign up is open from now until December 1st, 2021, so you may join even just for the last month of the year.
  • Series can be already completed as well as still ongoing.  For ongoing series, the goal is to catch up to the most recent book published by the end of 2021.
  • We don’t care if you have only 1 book or 10 books to read in order to finish your series, as long as you’ve started the series before 2021 (ie read at least one book in the series), it counts.  Re-reads are not required.
  • Any format and length of book counts – print, ebook, audio, ARC, etc.
  • Series can be any length (even if it’s just a Duet).
  • Crossovers from other challenges are totally acceptable!
  • Reviews are not required, but highly encouraged.

How to Play

  • Declare your intentions to participate in this challenge somewhere on the internet!!  You do not need to be a blogger to participate, there are many ways to declare.  You could write a blog post, create a reading challenge page, create a Goodreads shelf containing series you hope to finish, post about it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
  • Some things you could include (but that aren’t required):
    • A link to this page so that others may find us and join the fun as well (feel free to download the button at the top to use in your posts).
    • A list of series you hope to read for this challenge.  You could even get fancy and list the length of the series, or the books you’ve already read, etc.
    • The level you are aiming for.
  • Sign up for the challenge using the link up below, and link directly to where you’ve declared your intentions (ie to the specific blog post, the goodreads shelf, the facebook post, etc).
  • We will be posting quarterly link ups for you to add links to your reviews or any wrap-up/overview posts you wish to share.
  • Go forth and READ!!  And have fun!!
  • Use the hashtag #FinishingTheSeries2021 on any social media to keep up with other participants!

  1. This is a great challenge! I am going to try and take a step back from ARCs in 2021 and catch up on some of my own books. I think I am going to join this challenge too! I was just thinking I want to read the Kim Stone series and finish the Kate Burkholder series.
