This week I'm thinking about series books. I've always liked books that continue. I think it's because I love to get to know characters and watch them grow. Sometimes I can get a bit annoyed when I don't know a book is part of the series and the first one I read is in the middle somewhere. I absolutely become anal about it and have to start with the first book in any series, even if they are advertised as being standalone books.
Here are some of my favorite series books...
Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove Series
Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series
James Patterson's Women's Murder Club series
Shirley Rousseau Murphy's Joe Grey series
Rita Mae Brown's Mrs. Murphy series
Plus there are all the cozy mystery series that I love to read. Returning to these books makes me feel like I'm spending time with old friends. Currently, I'm reading the Alex Cross series by James Patterson, but I'm only up to the second book and this series has been going on for years.
It's funny, but as much as I love series books, I have more unfinished series than I do finished or "caught up on" series. I jump around alot. LOL
Do you like reading series books? Which ones?
