Reading. I do a lot of it. And I have a serious love affair with series–so long as they maintain their quality. It’s no secret that the In Death/Eve Dallas series by J.D. Robb is my all-time favorite. NAKED IN DEATH, the first book in the series, is my chicken soup book. When absolutely no other book says READ ME! I can pick that one up and be so friggin happy I’m a clam. What does that phrase even mean? “Happy as a clam.” Anyway… I bought the series in used mass market paperbacks until I caught up with the hardback releases. Now I buy them in hardback, and in digital. Someday, I’ll have the whole series in paper AND digital. I love it if LaNora would get the first 20 books reissued in hardback. I’d buy ’em.
Why am I talking about this? Because I’m getting read to do a series reread because the next book is coming out May 20th, Darynda Jones’s SIXTH GRAVE ON EDGE. Yes, I have these books in hardback and now I’m catching up in digital when they go on sale. These books make me laugh, and Cruz?!? Oh yeah, he’s right up there on my list of favorite book boyfriends.
Other series that are my crack?
Jayne Ann Krentz (et al.) and her Arcane Society books. I started with the Jayne Castle Harmony series and followed all the branches through all her persona.
Allison Brennan and just about everything she rights. I’m really groovin’ on the Max Revere series (her new one) and I really need to get into the series she’s co-authoring with Laura Griffin, the Moreno and Hart mystery series. Need I mention Alli’s Lucy Kincaid (and the trilogies that are all about her family and friends leading up to Lucy’s series).
And ya know what? Holy crap but there’s a lot of series I could list. I just looked at my Kindle shelves. I could go on for days but…I have work to do. So what’s your go-to series? Your all-time-if-I-had-nothing-but-this-series-to-read-I’d-still-be-happy favorite?
