Give me a good series done right and I will love you forever. Getting lost in a book is one thing, to get lost in a whole different is something else; special. Classic ones like the Belgariad and Pern are ones I love to reread, like revisiting an old friend. But I like making new ones as well.
The Alien series by Gini Koch. An automatic buy, though I’m somewhat behind. I love its contemporary feel mixed with sci fi, its kick-ass heroine and the encompassing story arc. I do struggle with the more political ones, but that’s me.
The Iron Druid Chronicles by Kevin Hearne. Another must-buy. This series is urban fantasy and throws just about every mythology in the mix. I love Atticus, but more I adore (as do most readers I think) his talking dog Oberon. The magic system is solid, the writing crisp and witty, and the plethora of gods somewhat mind-boggling. Fun, fun, fun.
Allison Pang’s Abby Sinclair series is another urban fantasy I’m getting into, along with Zoe Archer’s Blades of the Rose. I read and loved Chuck Wendig’s Blackbirds and ache to read Mockingbird. I still love reading stand-alones, but I have to admit to being a serial lover.
