Series Challenge Wrap Up

Kathrin at Crazy Cozy Murders started this challenge on December 1, 2007. The idea was to finish any series you’d already started. So I caught up with three series I was working on – the Circle trilogy by Nora Roberts, Debbie Macomber’s knitting series, and The Cliff Janway bookman series by John Dunning.

Here are the books I read for the challenge and their ratings. If you’re interested in reading a full review of any of the books, just click on the title you’re interested in.

Books read:

1. Valley of Silence by Nora Roberts – 3.5/5 (very good)

2. A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber – 4/5 (excellent)

3. Back on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber – 4/5 (excellent)

4. Bookman's Wake – 3.5/5 (very good)

5. Bookman's Promise – 3/5 (good)

6. The Sign of the Book – 3.5/5 (very good)

7. The Bookwoman's Last Fling – 2.5/5 (ok, but not Earth shattering)

Favorite book of the challenge: A Good Yarn

Least favorite book of the challenge: The Bookwoman’s Last Fling

Any new authors read in this challenge? No. The nature of the challenge was to continue to read series already started.

What I learned: I enjoy revisiting characters I like. It’s like catching up with old friends.

Thanks for hosting this challenge, Kathrin! I enjoyed picking and reading the books for it and catching up with some old friends.

If I ever joined this challenge, I think I'd be in trouble! I just began reading the Lord Peter Wimsey mystery series by Dorothy Sayers. I'm absolutely hooked.

I know what you mean, Katherine. I've caught up with the three series that I wanted to for this challenge, but there are many, many more I'm still working on. Thanks for stopping by! ~Kristi
