If you are looking to get hooked onto a book series instead of a TV series, here are some exciting and fascinating series recommendations that will leave readers wondering where their weekend has gone when they reach the last page:
Me Before You Trilogy by Jojo Moyes
Jojo Moyes has the gift of storytelling and to transport readers to another world. That’s why the Me Before You trilogy is the perfect series to binge. You will fall in love with Louisa Clark and the journey she embarks on discovering who she is and the opportunities that lay before her. That makes for great reading in one sitting.
Moyes wrote a short story featuring Louisa Clark last year, which you can find here.
A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy) by Deborah Harkness
Read the Harry Potter Series in one sitting and want to try fantasy series that is more grown-up? The All Souls Trilogy is just for you! Filled with action, fantasy adventure and passionate romance, you will be so engrossed in the story that you can’t believe that you reached the end of the third book.
A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder Series by Holly Jackson
I cannot talk about this series without a big huge smile appearing on my face! Jackson has created both a thrilling and compelling mystery series that may have been targeted for young adult readers but in fact, it can be read by readers of all ages. It is by far one of the best mysteries I have ever read and you will have a hard time just stopping at one.
Good news! Book Three comes out later this year!
Goldie Vance Series by Hope Larson and Brittany Williams
Meet Nancy Drew for the 21st century generation! Goldie Vance is full of spunk and curiosity that will engage readers. Her tenacity is what keeps this amazing story going and although the series transferred from graphic novels to middle-grade prose books, Goldie Vance will continue to live on as one of those unputdownable book.
Heartstopper Series by Alice Oseman
Speaking of another series that is unputdownable and putting a big smile on my face, Heartstopper really lives up to its title. I really got through the pandemic while reading this. Its heartwarming and sweet storytelling was just the uplifting story that I needed and the touching romance that readers look for in their books. You can’t stop at one with this budding romance!
A Great and Terrible Beauty Series by Libba Bray
I loved reading this series when I was a teenager, and I love to share it with readers this time around. If you are a fan of Harry Potter and looking for a fantasy series with a strong, female protagonist, then this is the book series for you! Bray always brings fantasy and adventure in her books, but the trilogy is one of my personal favorites. Gemma Doyle witchcraft journey is both enchanting and engaging that although there are heavy books, you will find yourself at the end of the book so quickly.
Noughts and Crosses Series by Malorie Blackman
Callum is a nought: pale-skinned and poor, he’s considered to be less than nothing, there to serve Crosses, but he dreams of a better life.
They’ve been friends since they were children, and they both know that’s as far as it can ever go. Noughts and Crosses are fated to be bitter enemies–love is out of the question.
Then–in spite of a world that is fiercely against them–these star-crossed lovers choose each other.
But it comes at a price and as they prepare to protect themselves and their love, they realize that the cost will lead both of them into terrible danger…and will have shocking repercussions for generations to come. (Credit: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers)
