2023 Challenges

2023 Finishing the Series Reading Challenge! #FinishingTheSeriesChallenge2023

It’s back for another year! 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!

Review Link-Up



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

  1. Bree Taggert by Melinda Leigh
  2. Orphan X by Gregg Hurwitz
  3. Spoiler Alert by Olivia Dade
  4. Kate Burkholder by Linda Castillo
  5. Tracy Crosswhite by Robert Dugoni
  6. In Death by J. D. Robb
  7. Black Dagger Brotherhood by J. R. Ward
  8. Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne
  9. Romantic Suspense by Karen Rose
  10. Bromance Book Club by Lyssa Kay Adams
  11. Joe Talbert by Allen Eskens


  • The challenge will run from January 1st, 2023 to December 31st, 2023.  Books must be read during this time frame to count.  Sign up is open from now until December 1st, 2023, 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 2023.
  • 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 2023 (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).
  • This year only one link up will be posted for the whole year.  This is where you can 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 #FinishingTheSeries2023 on any social media to keep up with other participants!

  1. Awesome. I’m happy to see the IDC and Joe Talbert books. I love Leigh, Dugoni, Robb, Hurwitz, Rose and Adams. Pretty much the only ones I’ve not kept current on are Dade and Castillo.
