As you may have noticed last week, I recently discovered the Outlander series. In addition to my review, I spent a good portion of the week tweeting things like “why did I wait so long to read these???” These tweets were almost always met with people telling me how they had been reading these books for 20 years and absolutely adored them, or how everyone in their life had recommended the books and they were really going to have to try them. I’m totally into them now, and actually ordered the next two books in the series when I was at The Bookstore on Friday.
Eventually, I got into a conversation about the books with @harperlibrary, who mentioned the Sookie Stackhouse novels as another incredibly addictive series. I actually have all or most of those, but haven’t read them yet, and I think I am going to wait until I get through the Outlander books to start that new series.
As we were talking, though, we were trying to come up with other series that people find just as addicting as Sookie Stackhouse and Outlander. Although I could think of a lot of middle grades and young adult series, I couldn’t think of much marketed to adults. For our purposes today, I’m counting a series only if there are 3 or more books, not simply a book and sequel.
So, what series do you love? Which series can you not put down? What should be next on my list when I make it through Outlander and Sookie?
