I’ve talked a bit about series books in the past but it’s a subject worth talking about again. Am I just completely crazy or do other people read way too many series books at once? I was thinking the other day about how many series I’m trying to read and oh man I have way too many going on.
I’ve got the series that I’m actively trying to read (as in I’ve read 2+ books in the series). Those are: The Chronicles of Narnia, Heroes of Olympus, The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, The Jaguar Stones, The Last Apprentice, Pendragon, Wool, and The Underland Chronicles.
Then I’ve got the series that I’ve read the first book of but haven’t totally made up my mind about continuing the series. Those books are: Anne of Green Gables, Books of Ember, Curse Workers, Delirium, Discworld, Divergent, Gone, The Maze Runner, The Monstrumologist, Peter and the Starcatchers, and probably more that I’m forgetting about.
Of course there are the series that I tried but I’m not going to finish. [Lord of the Rings (even though it’s technically not a series), Wolves of Mercy Falls, Kane Chronicles, 39 Clues, Artemis Fowl, just to name a few]
Back in the “old days” (when I didn’t have tons of books to read) I would stumble upon a series that I liked and would read the whole series (or quit if I didn’t like it) more or less back to back if I could. Now I can’t imagine zipping through a series over a few weeks. I’d get bored! I like to mix up my reading so being constricted to one series is weird to me.
How do you read series books? Back to back? Slowly over time? Tell me all about it!
