2016 Prequel & Sequel Challenge

preqseqbutton2016

I’ve decided to participate in the 2016 Prequel & Sequel Challenge, hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat and Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads. I had a blast doing this challenge last year and I’m excited to see how many series I can complete this year.

Points Overview

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)

At the end of the challenge, add up your points:

  • 10-25 points: Newbie
  • 25-50 points: Amateur
  • 51-75 points: Advanced
  • 76-100 points: Professional
  • 101+ points: Veteran

I’m setting my goal at Advanced (51-75 points) this year.
