Two posts in one day!  I saw this meme and had to throw my thoughts in.

What a great question.  Lately, I've been thinking about series and trilogies.  It's rare to find a stand-alone book anymore. Why is that?  Well...because series are just so good, I guess.  I do love a good solo book, but now that we have been spoiled by series, we just can't get as close to the characters as we can in one tiny book.  It's having that world and those people to return to again and again that makes reading so enjoyable in the first place.  The only gripe I have with series (what is the multiple of series? series's? serieses? anyway...) is that sometimes I feel like they just draw it out.  If you're going to make a story into three or more books, make each book fantastic on its own!  Each book should have a beginning, middle and end with it's own climax and conclusion.  You already know some of my favorite series, but now I can share some of the series that have been calling my name for too long.  And you already know ONE in particular that will make this list.  Please don't throw things.

Melissa recently shared this recommendation with me.  It sounds fantastic and it's set in Prague.  I love books with great cities as settings.

Another rec from Melissa (it happens a lot).

This has become hugely popular, and I feel like the last person on earth who hasn't read it. I love the premise though.

I just picked this one up on Amazon because it was a great deal.  I have been seeing it a lot lately.

I love everything else by Keary Taylor, so why not this one?

Such a cool premise!

Maggie Stiefvater is an auto-buy author for me, but I just haven't gotten around to this series yet.

I have had this book for a while now and I've started it a few times, but I keep getting lost somewhere.  I hear great things and it seems like a great series.  

My husband is currently raving about the show (I'm very behind on all things TV, you should know that). I have not started this one because I'm stubborn and I keep saying I'd rather read the books first.

Okay, go ahead. Yell. Scream. Throw things. In case you're new around here and haven't heard yet, I have not read the HP series.  Please still find a way to love me. 

There is my list.  What series would be on your list?  Any on here that I'm missing?  I'd love to hear your recommendations!

Linking up with The Broke and the Bookish!
