2016 is here! That means it’s time for my first series binge. Up to bat is a series I’ve been meaning to read for years, and haven’t ever gotten to. I’ve been told (by about 80 people now) that it’s great, so without further ado:



I’m really hoping I get off to a great start with these four (and don’t worry, I have the author’s order for the novellas in between!) Happy 2016, everyone!





#RockMyTBR is hosted by Sarah at The YA Book TravelerIt’s all about reading books that you OWN during the 2016 year and making a dent in that TBR!


I definitely found more than I expected, especially e-books! If anyone wants to buddy read one of the ones on the list, shout out either in a comment on the post or on my twitter, @rosieposiekayla! I’d love to have a buddy to motivate me to keep going.

So that’s my incomplete (so far) list, with priority/book tag to come! I can’t wait to start, and you all should join!




Okay, I’m not great at consistency. I’m also not great at keeping up with challenges- it seems like every time I join a read-a-thon or reading challenge, I end up falling off the wagon sooner rather than later. But this one, hosted by the lovely Danielle at Love at First Page, (sign up yourself by clicking the link) seems like my level of chill.

Anyway, this is going to be my official post for keeping up with this challenge, since I’m hoping to keep doing it for years to come! I’m going to just start with a list of series I want to read or reread that I can keep updated, and I’ll add dates as I decide them. Thanks to Danielle for starting this great challenge!
