2016 Prequel & Sequel Reading Challenge

Hosted by Jessi from Novel Heartbeat and Melissa from Writer Grrl Reads.

Some rules:
The challenge runs from January 1st through December 31st. All books in a series count for points (see point rules below). Novellas count, either prequels or sequels (i.e. #0.5, #1.5, etc). Books can be published anytime, and don’t have to be released in 2016. In order to get 10 points for a completed series, there must be at least 3 full-length books in the series.

For each prequel and sequel read this year, points will be awarded as follows:
  • 1 point for each prequel or sequel novella read and reviewed
  • 2 points for each full-length sequel read and reviewed
  • 10 points for completing and reviewing a full series (doesn’t require novellas)*†
  • **You do not get points for the first book in a series
To get points, you must review the book/novella somewhere.
*The 10 bonus points is for finishing a FULL series. That means that all books must be published (unless you got an advance reader copy early). So if you are completely caught up on a series, and the next book is not releasing until 2017 (and you don’t have an advance reader copy), that does not count toward the 10 bonus points.
If you started the series before 2016, you can still get the bonus points for finishing it if you reviewed the other books in the series at some point. For example: You read The Hunger Games in 2015, but read Catching Fire and Mockingjay in 2016 – you would get 2 points for both sequels and 10 bonus points for finishing the series (14 points total). You don’t have to start the series in 2016 to get the bonus points.

Point Levels:
10-25 points: Newbie
25-50 points: Amateur
51-75 points: Advanced
76-100 points: Professional
