BOOK SERIES - LOVED, DISLIKED, AND WANTED

Hey there! Just so you know, this post contains affiliate links, which allow me to support my website and writing career. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

I have never really noticed this about myself before, but I have read a surprisingly small amount of book series. It's not that I don't enjoy them, but they need to be real good for me to invest the time in. I just recently finished the Me Before You series (I know, I'm way late) and I loved it so much that I thought I'd dedicate an entire blog post to book series - the ones I've loved, the ones I've not-so-loved, and the ones I want to get my hands on.



SERIES I'VE LOVED

  • HARRY POTTER || I'm 99.99% I don't even need to add anything here. The Sorcerer's Stone was one of the first books I ever read, and the series will always be a favorite of mine. #harrypotterforever
  • ME BEFORE YOU || I know that I am one of the last people ever to read this series, but oh my, I'm so glad I did! I fell so hard for Louisa Clark in the first book, then continued to fall as I read the other books in the series. She is one character that I so wish were real so we could be friends in real life. As far as I know, the series is done. But if Moyes ever releases more, I'll be her first customer.
  • THE GOOD WOMAN || I accidentally read this series out of order. I found Porter's book The Good Wife in the clearance section of a book store and took a chance on it. I enjoyed it so much that I looked at the library for more of her work and what do you know...it's part of a series! I still need to read The Good Daughter, but I thoroughly enjoyed the other two books in the series. (**fyi...there are a few x-rated scenes in The Good Woman that I didn't feel comfortable reading and skipped over.)
  • THE HESITANT HEIRESS || I'm so honored that I'm able to say that I know Dawn Crandall in real life! We used to attend church together, and she was so, so, so helpful in answering all of my questions when I released my first book. Dawn's books are written in historical fiction format, and she has a true talent of making you feel like you are standing in a wide, beautiful dress right along with the rest of her characters. Bonus: Dawn is a Christian author, too!
  • A TIME TO DANCE || This book was the first of many that I would read by Karen Kingsbury. Now one of my favorite authors, Kingsbury's books are all over my personal bookshelf. Her stories are full of hope, romance, and faith - just a few of my favorite things. A Time to Dance quickly became a favorite of mine, and although I haven't read all of Kingsbury's books, I'm working on it. 😉

SERIES I'VE NOT-SO-LOVED

  • TWILIGHT || I know, I know, I know. I'm terrible. But this is one series that I never could get into. They weren't badly written, but I'm a hard sell when it comes to fantasy fiction (other than HP, obviously), and I just couldn't with these.
  • THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO || Again, I know. You're probably beginning to question what kind of book blogger I am, ha! But I honestly didn't make it past the first few chapters in this one. I wanted to love it...but I didn't. I was so bored that I did something I never do - closed the book before finishing. Feel free to unfollow me now. 😬


SERIES I WANT TO GET MY HANDS ON

  • THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA || I had a family friend give me this series years and years ago, and I have yet to read them. They're classics, which is why I think I'll give them a go despite my wariness of fantasies.
  • TO ALL THE BOYS I'VE LOVED BEFORE || Apparently this series is becoming a huge hit around both the reading world and the Netflix world?? I need to read it - pronto.
  • THE KISS QUOTIENT || I've seen dozens of reviews of this series on social media this summer and they've talked me into starting them asap!
  • THE BAXTER FAMILY || Another Karen Kingsbury series that I have heard the best things about. I'm anxious to dive into this series, and I have a feeling I'm going to love it just like all of her other novels.
