The Book Series’ That I Have Loved

I love discovering a new book series that completely hooks me. I’d say the majority of books that I read are standalone books, but then there are those series that completely pull you into their world. With a series, there is more time to develop the characters and places, more time to get to know them and enjoy them. Which is why today I’d like to share with you the book series’ that I have loved, invite you to try them too and let me know your favourites.

I have always been a reader. It’s an intrinsic part of who I am. Many of my memories from my childhood involve a book.

It’s not that I didn’t love playing with my brother, my friends, or getting out and about. I did, it’s just that interwoven in amongst it all are the books that kept me company in any downtime. 

As a child Enid Blyton’s St. Clare’s books kept me company, along with the Chronicles of Narnia. As I grew into my teens, it was the Flowers in the Attic books by Virginia Andrews that absolutely absorbed me, and then I loved Mary Jane Staples Adams’ family books and Jilly Cooper’s Riders series. 

It’s been some time since I was a teen, and yet the characters from these books remain vivid to me today, their lives and worlds capturing me all of those years ago. 

I feel like I know them all so well. I think that’s the appeal of a series, you really get to know those characters that pop up time and time again and go on adventures with them.

Books were my constant companions. 

It’s similar now. Alongside work, home, family and other things I like to get up to, there’s always a book lurking around in the background. I always have one on the go, some days I read a fair bit, others not at all, but that book is rarely far from my side during any free time. 

Occasionally, I like to dip into a book series. I have to be in the right mood for them, and where possible, I will choose a series that is already written so I don’t have to wait ages for the next one, though it doesn’t always work out that way! So some of these that I have loved, I have binged, whilst others have taken me years to get through as I have waited for the next release. 

Bridgerton books

The Bridgertons by Julia Quinn

I read these years before the Netflix show came out, and I have read them many times over. The books are different to the show.

These are books that I have actually kept, as I pass most I read on. I like to re-red them, it’s like watching a favourite romcom over and again.


Harry Potter by JK Rowling

I mean, of course, right?!

I read these as an adult, so they need a mention in this list.

I had to wait between releases for some of these and they were all worth the wait. 

The Word and the Void series by Terry Brooks

I have read a few books by Terry Brooks, I’d guess the Shannara books being his most famous. But it’s these that stuck with me, I loved them.

I am not a big fantasy reader, I dip in once or twice a year into this genre, and these are up there with my favourites. 

The Brown Sisters by Talia Hibbert

You know when you pick up a book and are just instantly in and don’t want to put it down? Yes, these.

All three in this trilogy got me this way.  

Rules for Scoundrels by Sarah MacLean

I love so many Sarah MacLean books, I have them all. But I think this is my favourite series of hers.

It’s a 4 book series, and the characters all pop up in all four books so you do feel you get to know them all. 

Rizzoli and Isles by Tess Gerritsen

I do love a Tess Gerritsen book, and these characters are great.

There’s a TV show around them, but as always, the books are better.

Another worthy mention is any magical trilogy by Nora Roberts. She has written loads of these, romances with a paranormal backstory, and I always like getting lost in their world for a few days, as they are always easy reads. 

On my shelf, waiting very patiently for me to read them, are lots of Elly Griffiths books, the first in the Millennium series, Peter James’ Roy Grace books, Victoria Aveyard’s Red Queen books, The Shadow and Bone trilogy and I have the first Outlander book by Diana Gabaldon. That latter one is one that I have had for years, literally years! I’ve resisted it as I’ve a feeling that once I read it, I will be completely sucked in to those books and not get anything else done! Outlander fans, will this be the case?! 

Have you read any of these? What are your favourite series’?

  1. Nora Roberts’ trilogies are quick easy reads. I think I’ve read most of them. You are 100% right about Outlander! I just finished the latest and it was great! I don’t think I’ve read the Word and Void, I think I’ve only read his Shannara series. Rizzoli and Isles is on my TBR! Thanks for the suggestions!

    1. Yes, they’re great, I’ve read quite a few Nora Roberts books and trilogies. I knew this would be the case with Outlander!!!

  2. I am currently reading “Romancing Mr. Bridgerton”! It is such a charming series! Thanks for writing this blog! It’s fun to find a kindred spirit in the book reading world!
