Summer of Series: You Haven’t Read That?!

Happy almost summer everyone!!

As I sit here writing this post, it is the day before Memorial Day and there are officially 12 school days sitting between me and summertime. *insert caffeine aided shriek here* Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE teaching my tiny humans, but I am beyond ready for summer, and you know what summer means….

LOTS AND LOTS OF READING!

Summertime for me means trying to catch up on all the books I have to read, and I can’t say enough how ready I am for another summer filled with good times, good people, and of course, lots and lots of good books.

It’s obviously no secret that I am perpetually behind on reading all the books I want to read. I feel as if that is pretty much the story of my life at this point. It’s also no secret that I have a ton of unread books that seem to be piling up quicker than you can say “How many books do you have?” My real life never-ending book basket is proof of that, and that thing keeps expanding every day. (Sorry Mom!)

Now a few years back I did a blog post series that I titled Summer of Series. My goal with that blog post series was to read through some of the many series I own. You see I have a thing for books, and especially series. I LOVE me a good series. (That’s probably why over the years I’ve continued to buy complete series like I need my next breath.) There’s just something about a good series, where you spend multiple books in one world with a set of characters that gets my heart beating just a bit faster in the best kind of way. Like for real y’all. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a good standalone novel too, but a good series is my absolute favorite and is something I live for!

When I did my original Summer of Series I had set out to read around 20 different series, and I’m sure you won’t be surprised to learn that I failed at reading even a quarter of those series during that summer. But that being said, I haven’t given up on my love of series and I haven’t given up on my love for this blog post series, which is why I decided to bring it back for another summer filled to the brim with some amazing series. And I for one couldn’t be more excited to get this all started again!

So welcome to Summer of Series: You Haven’t Read That?!

For this summer I decided to pick some series that have been recommended to me for forever. These are the books and series that when I mention I haven’t read them yet, I get some serious side eye….hahaha, just kidding, but I do have a lot of people that ask me “You haven’t read that yet?” Many fellow readers, bloggers, and even some authors have told me I NEED to get to reading these books stat, so I guess it’s high time I start listening to them.

For this post series, I decided that I would focus in on those highly recommended series to finally see what I have been missing out on all these years. (It also made for a pretty great blog post series title, if I do say so myself.) Some of these series I originally intended to read the last time I did my Summer of Series, and others have been added to my list over the years. Some of these series came out years ago, and others are more recent, but they’re all ones that I’ve been dying to read, and they all have been recommended to me sooooooo many times before.

I know there are hundreds of more books and series I could focus on, and believe me I want to read them all, I just chose to focus on these ones because some of them have been in that big old never ending book basket for years, and they needed to see the light of day. Y’all get my crazy thinking, right? Right.

I’m hoping that this summer and this blog post series will allow me to get to as many of them as I possibly can, while also allowing me to connect with some of y’all about these books and how great I know they’re going to be!

Now for the sake of realism, I realize that I’m yet again being a bit ambitious with how many series I selected to try to read, but I figure there’s nothing wrong with aiming high.

So without further ado, let’s get this Summer of Series off to a good start!

I’ve got some great posts, some giveaways, and some good books planned for the summer, and I hope y’all are as excited as I am! I also hope y’all have some great books you plan to read too because you know I’d LOVE to talk about them!

So here’s to the next 3 months filled with some amazing series that I can’t wait to dive into!

p.s. If you have a series from the picture that you would recommend me starting with, please feel free to comment with your recommendation!

SYNOPSIS:

Tatum Elliot is a successful writer on a hit television show, lives in an Upper East Side apartment and loves her life. She wouldn’t change a thing. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have a choice. She’s losing her sight.

Tripping over her tongue and her heels, Tatum all too quickly realizes that the things which appeared so important before are slowly slipping away leaving room for what really matters. With the support of her best friends, family and colleagues, she begins to see that there’s much more to life… and herself.

 When Ben Harris enters her life as her new personal assistant, she can’t tell if it’s his good looks and charm that are working on her libido, or his kind and helpful nature working on her heart? Whatever it is, neither one of them can resist it.

 As her vision fades out, a world of love and happiness just might…Fade In.

 (Fade In is a contemporary-romance novel about laughing through your tears and telling life to, quite frankly, “Suck it.” This novel contains sexual situations that the author may or may not have tried at home… for your safety, of course. Research is research.)

An Excerpt From the Book:

I only met her briefly on one occasion, but she left a pockmark in my mind.  She was dynamite and she had an indefinitely long fuse that never stopped burning.  Those around her never knew when she would blow up, not looking away because she was a mess who was fun to watch.

I hope she’s still like that when my mind drifts back to her through the years that pass by.

Maybe I should have shared the cab.  Got in with her.  Stayed with her.

I don’t know.

Who ever really knows that it is the first time, the first time you meet?  It’s only the first time after there’s a second time.  Up until then, it’s just an only.  One moment to the next could alter everything.

Every decision pushes you or pulls you where you’re going in life.

At times, after running into her, when I felt like I was pushing every day to do better, to get further, make a bigger difference, and like I was getting nowhere and I was just spinning my tires, I’d think of her.

She pulls life along.  That girl was making life keep up with her.

And that’s too special to forget.
