List: Series I Love

 

Lists_Series

When I began compiling this list, I was surprised how hard it was for me to muster up a group of series that I have loved. I realized that I have started a lot of series (hmm maybe that could be a future list), but there are very few that I have finished, or stuck with throughout its publishing. Series so often fail to maintain quality and meet my expectations throughout each book, but the following are series that I have enjoyed through completion or to where it stands as of now. I also didn’t include the Harry Potter series here not because it isn’t a favorite series, but rather I find it to be obvious and doesn’t need a shout out. I hope this list grows and would love to hear if you have any series recommendations! Continue reading

Although I find new books from many sources, the main ways I learn about new books come from 5 places. Continue reading

How did I do on my June TBR?

So I didn’t do so hot tackling my June TBR List and I think I need to take a new approach to selecting titles I would like to read. I need to pick fewer so I still have the flexibility to add in something at the last minute and I need to pick books I am likely to procure via the library, thrift store, or a daily deal from Amazon. The main reason I didn’t get to my TBR list, aside from not having most of them in my possession, was that my Family Book Club pick, which I will post about soon, ended up taking me most of the month to read. My sister purchased me The Glass Castle, which I am currently reading and hope to finish in the month of June, which will make me 1/5 for my June TBR List. Here’s to hoping I do better in July… Continue reading
