Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

The Number of the Counting Shall be 3 Reading Challenge

The Number of the Counting Shall be 3 Reading Challenge

Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three.

Fantasy and Science Fiction have a long and glorious tradition of trilogies. For this challenge you are King Arthur and three shall be the number of trilogies thou shalt read and the number of reviews thou shalt write, shall be three. Pick three SF or fantasy trilogies and write one review for each trilogy. That's nine books and three reviews in twelve months.

If you're not quite up to that, choose Brother Maynard as your spiritual guide and read two trilogies. Or, you can bravely run away-away like Sir Robin and read only one trilogy. Feeling braver than the King? Sir Not-Appearing-in-this-Film can be your leige lord at four trilogies.

A trilogy that later got expanded into a longer series is OK and it's also cool if you want to read the first three books of a longer series. As a suggestion, rather than a rule, pick at least one trilogy by a woman author you have not read before.

This challenge plays nicely with other RYO challenges so you should be able to combine it easily.
