YA Series Challenge

I've decided to take part in the YA Series Challenge hosted by Shannon of Stalking the Bookshelves and Farrah and Britney of I Eat Words. I already plan on catching up with reading lots of series that I haven't read yet (as seen in my Book Series Completion Challenge post) so this challenge seemed like a no brainer for me.

If you would like to read about the guidelines and prizes in this challenge, as well as where to sign up, please click here.

I will be entering at Level 4-Fully Committed 13-16 Books.

Like I mentioned earlier, I've already made an in depth post with book series that I want to read (not necessarily all in the year 2011 though), so I'm going to do my best to narrow my choices down for this challenge.

The Mortal Instruments Series
by Cassandra Clare
1. City of Bones
2. City of Ashes
3. City of Glass
I've already read these pre-2011 so they will not count towards this challenge.
