Challenge: Trilogies and Series Challenge

This challenge is hosted by Ashana Lian.
You know when you're so frantic about how many books you have to read that you kind of just read one of everything, for variety, and never get around to more of the authors you really like? Well, maybe it's only me. But this challenge encourages you to not only start, but complete a series, whether it be three books, four books, or forty books.
  • You can start at any time, but you must finish before December 31, 2015.
  • Trilogies and series only: must be 3 or more books in the series.
  • From the first book to the last OR most recently published book in a series, counts as ONE 'completed' series.
  • Spin-off novels or novellas do not count.
  • Any length and any genre; for example, mangas count. But comics, because they can span into the hundreds, do not count.
  • If you end up disliking the series and stop at any point before the last/most recently published book, it DOES NOT COUNT!
  • Your goal: 3 series, but you can also try for the Superhero and Overlord trophy!
  • When you finish a series, you must write a short review of it on a blog, Goodreads, or similar.
  • Anyone can enter, but to validate your challenge, you must write the Entry post.
Oh, By the Way...
If a newer book in the series will be published before December 31, 2015, you still have to read that before the deadline for the WHOLE SERIES to count.
Instead of levels, the TAS Challenges uses trophies. If you're really ambitious, you can aim for the highest trophy! When you earn one, leave a comment or tweet with the #trilogiesseries hashtag and go for the next.
  • 1 series: Better than None! Costumed Crusader
  • 2 series: On a Roll! Saga Sidekick
  • 3 series: Hit the Mark! Humble Hero
  • 5 series: Superhero I HAVE THE POWER
  • 9 series: Overlord of the Trilogy, Quadrilogy, etc
What Do I Do Now?
  • Write an Entry post that says you're taking part and list the first three series you're going to try. This can change as you go along.
  • Grab the Trilogies and Series Challenge banner to put in your Entry post and link back to the blog: Ashana Lian: A Fantasy Writer's Blog.
  • When your Entry post goes live, put the TASC button in your blog's sidebar or footer.

What series/trilogies do you plan to finish?


  1. Ooo, many new trilogies/series I've never heard of. I'll have to go and check those out. I do hope you like the Tril and Series challenge, and again there's a Goodreads group for it.

    By the way, I'm astonished at how many challenged you're doing =D Good luck with them all!

    1. They're all pretty good! I'll join the group! A lot of the challenges are similar, so I can use books for multiple challenges. But I probably went overboard since this is my first year participating in them!
