One challenge that I was particularly intrigued to work on--and would require almost double the reading in some cases--was the "Finish that Series!" challenge. As I thought I'd try to get some of my YA Challenge with that, I decided to finish a lot of the YA series that I read only the first book of. I knew that the Gallagher Girls series had 3 books. More than 2 = a series to me. So I went ahead and read #2 and #3. As I neared the end of #3, I had a suspicion and I looked it up. Yep. #3 was not the last in the series as I had thought. #4 will be released in June. And the author's website revealed that she's considering doing 6 in the series.
So my dilemma: Did I finish the series? Because, technically, I've read all that were published. And that's all I thought there were. Yet now I'm informed and know that #3 will not be the last. I do plan on reading #4 if our library gets is. (And it's so fun to know I have a much weightier say-so in that now!) But even if I read #4 by the end of this year, did I "finish" the series?
Perhaps I should ask the host(ess) of the challenge. But I'd still like to hear your opinions.
