Am I allowed to be sad about saying goodbye to the Summer Series Challenge? This three-month challenge was hosted by Lauren at Love Is Not A Triangle, Heather at Flyleaf Review and Asheley at Into the Hall of Books. Basically, it was everything I ever wanted in a challenge! It was low-key, easy to participate in and had some awesome possible prizes. I didn't actually win anything, but you better believe I found the chance to win an Amazon gift card super motivating!
My goals post was really ambitious - I listed SO many series that I'd like to finish! Looking over what I ended up reading, I have to laugh at how I diverged from that original list. I feel really successful for the fact that I read 22 series books this summer (21 that actually counted for the challenge) - finishing six total series. While a number of them weren't on my original list, I'm still pretty proud of my progress.
I also got to write about my series addiction for one of the Series Challenge Friday posts. I had so much fun writing it, and I really looked forward to all the other posts each Friday. There were so many great things shared - I'm so proud of what these ladies put together and thrilled that I was able to join in.
So, what did I read over the last three months? Let's review!

I certainly hope these ladies host it again next year. In fact, I'm kind of mad that I didn't think of the idea myself - that's how much I love it! I can't wait to see take a look at everyone's progress - always looking for more series to add to my shelves. So long, summer! But I'll never say goodbye to my love for series.
