Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge – May 2023

Posted May 8, 2023 by Marsha in Can You Read A Series In A Month Challenge / 0 Comments

It’s that time again.  What the heck am I talking about?  Well.  The “Can You Read a Series in a Month? Challenge”, of course.

I’ve done this Challenge before on another of my romance websites, but my TBR Tower is so huge that this time it’s Happily Ever After Romance‘s turn at the Challenge.

The SIAM (Series in a Month) is just plain fun, with a prize (beyond bragging rights), and the chance to complete a series on your TBR that you’ve been meaning to get to… and now you can in a fun, challenging way.  What’s not to love about that?  Right?


I’m picking the Four Corners Ranch series by Maisey Yates this time.  There are three books published in this series that seems planned for about six-ish books eventually.  The titles include — Unbridled Cowboy —♥— Merry Christmas Cowboy —♥— Cowboy Wild —♥— The Rough Rider —♥— The Holiday Heartbreaker —♥— The Troublemaker —♥—

Since time isn’t always easy to find, this one works for me so I’m caught up when the next title in the series releases in July of 2023.  I don’t care about winning the prize – I want bragging rights for my own enjoyment, proving that I can do this… and maybe repeat the process a bit more often to whittle that TBR Tower down a bit.  In any event, that’s my intention, and if you’d like to take part the links are above, and using the graphic over in the upper corner will take you to the sign-up page to check it out!

Finished, so far:  1) Unbridled Cowboy 2)


Twin Games in Music City by Jules Bennett

It’s a twin swap, Nashville-style, in the launch of the Dynasties: Beaumont Bay series…

Country singer Hannah Banks wants what she shouldn’t have.

The owner of her new label—the man in charge of her career—is way too hot. So hot he’s all she can think about… So to put distance between them, she poses as her quieter twin sister. That should keep temptation away…

Except Will Sutherland doesn’t play games. He wants the real Hannah—in his studio and in his bed—as long as what’s between them stays their secret. But when an old rival uncovers the truth, Will must choose between playing the press or playing for keeps…

Titles in the Dynasties: Beaumont Bay (multi-author) series include — Twin Games in Music City by Jules Bennett – Second Chance Love by Jessica Lemmon – Fake Engagement, Nashville Style by Jules Bennett – Good Twin Gone Country by Jessica Lemmon –

This is an adult 18+ story that may contain language, possible violence, and/or sexual situations geared to an adult audience.

Update! Challenge: Can You Read A Series In A Month?

Posted August 16, 2021 by Marsha in Can You Read A Series In A Month Challenge / 0 Comments

We’re just a short time away from the return of the “Can You Read A Series In A Month?” Challenge from Berls & Michelle at Because Reading. (all links -graphic and word links lead you to the signup page) Begins Sept 1st through September 30th.

I’ve done this challenge in the past on other blogs that I have.  But since I’m really trying to get caught up on series here at Happily Ever After Romance, I think this year (or this time) HEAR gets the honor of trying.  🙂

I have two series in mind, and because each has between 4 – 6 books either one would work… now to narrow the choice down before September 1st!

It’s a good way to get a few more books off of my TBR pile and enjoy some good stories.  If you’re interested go check out the signup page for yourself.

Update:  After a bit of looking through my overly packed Kindle I decided to go in a different direction.  I’m reading the Coltons of Grave Gulch multi-author series by Harlequin for this challenge.  It’s been “a year” so far and I need to get caught up on this series since I have all the books except the final four (because Harlequin changed the release dates (and added another title)… and, in fact, since the next one will release in late September I may have time to add that one to this challenge leaving only three yet unpublished stories to finish.

Read so far:

Coltons of Grave Gulch

    1. Colton’s Dangerous Liaison by Regan Black
    2. Colton’s Killer Pursuit by Tara Taylor Quinn
    3. Colton Nursery Hideout by Dana Nussio
    4. Colton’s Bullseye by Geri Krotow
    5. Guarding Colton’s Child by Lara Lacombe
    6. Colton’s Covert Witness by Addison Fox
    7. Rescued by the Colton Cowboy by Deborah Fletcher Mello
    8. Colton K-9 Target by Justine Davis
    9. A Colton Internal Affair by Jennifer D. Bokal
    10. Uncovering Colton’s Family Secret by Linda O. Johnston
    11. Agent Colton’s Takedown by Beverly Long
    12. Proving Colton’s Innocence by Lara Lacombe

There are three titles that are not released yet in this series – so, can I really state with honesty that I’ve read a series in a month?  Technically, no, not really.  But then I never started this challenge with the thought of “winning” but with a determination to complete a challenge that has always eluded me… in other words, to prove something to myself.  🙂

A Colton Internal Affair by Jennifer D. Bokal drops on September 28, 2021, so I can get that one read before the month of this challenge is up.  The rest?  Well, I’ll enjoy them as they are published each month to complete this engaging, fascinating series.

So. I’m going to call this “Can You Read A Series In A Month?” Challenge a win and will look forward to the next time the Challenge comes around.  I had fun, it felt good to make a plan and buckle down to get these titles read and off of my Kindle’s TBR pile (mountain).  I was never going for the “prize” offered but for the satisfaction of knowing that I finished my own goal… that is the win for me.  🙂
