All right, these are supposed to be series from the past two years or so. Which was sort of hard for me to come up with, because I’m good at starting series…just not so good at finishing them. Oops!
Anyway, here’s a list of 10 new series starters I’ve been meaning to try. Here’s where you come in: I need you to tell me if there are any on this list that I NEED to prioritize. Have you read any of these?
OK, where do I start?! Help!
Okay, we’re going all new releases with this one…

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts — thanks in advance!
We could fill in the blank however we wanted at the end of this topic, and loving all things fantasy I, of course, had to go that route. I think it’s a really hard genre for some people to get into — they’ve never tried it but because of preconceived notions assume they won’t like it.
So, today’s list is the “easiest” YA fantasy novels for a non-fantasy reader to check out, ranked in terms of “most accessible” to “work your way up to this one.” Still, every book on this list is AMAZING — you can’t go wrong and they are excellent tales of adventure, romance, tests of courage and heart, magic and much, much more.
Okay first off, it’s paining me that this topic ends in a preposition (HA SORRY JAMIE ILU).
Secondly, I HAVE a lot of books, but I do not COLLECT them. Aka, if you perused my shelves, you’d see that I have one or two books from a series, but not the rest…or don’t even own copies of some of my favorite books…or loan out the books I do own and then forget to get them back…or lose them (seriously, where are my Harry Potter books?!).
So while in some cases this represents some of my favorite authors…um…don’t read too much into this. Either way, have fun looking at my shelves!
11 books: Richelle Mead (plus one more today when Silver Shadows comes on preorder; the spine you can’t see is a galley copy of The Indigo Spell and few of these are signed to me!)
10 books: Megan McCafferty (also with a few signed; one of the copies of Sloppy Firsts is a galley)
8 books: L.M. Montgomery
8 books: Cassandra Clare (one signed, but I’m pumped about that one!)
5 books: Stephenie Meyer (don’t pretend you don’t have them, too)
4 books: Jay Crownover (whatever it’s a guilty pleasure, mind your own business)
4 books: Sarah Dessen
4 books: Jennifer Echols (why haven’t I met her yet?!)
4 books: Madeleine L’Engle
4 books: Rainbow Rowell (Well, only 3 here because I loaned out Eleanor & Park and forgot who had it, but it’s SOMEWHERE. But my copy of Fangirl is signed to me.)
