I recently got sucked into a new books series so I thought I'd feature 13 Series I Actively Follow. I think I might have covered it in a different way not a few years ago, but there are four new ones so it's time to update. If you're a fan of fantasy, urban fantasy and paranormal romance you'll find something you like. If not, well, fine, be like that. :)
1. A Song of Ice and Fire ~ George R. R. Martin. I just got sucked into this one and although I'm almost through book two I haven't decided if I like it or not. I'll tell you after book five. But it has managed to get me back into high fantasy which is a feat in and of itself after so long.
2. The Harper Connelly Mysteries ~ Charlaine Harris. The title character Harper is able to find dead bodies after being struck by lightening. I'm grateful to Charlaine for this series because I consider it a baby step to broadening my TBR pile beyond urban fantasy into mystery
3. The Weather Warden Series ~ Rachel Caine. The idea of people with the inate abilitly to control the weather is cool enough, but she had me at Djinn and I just can't stop reading and wanting Jonathon to come back.
4. The Outcase Season Series ~ Rachel Caine. An offshoot of the Weather Warden series, it follows the outcome of a specific djinn that's been cut off from the rest of her people.
5. The Hollows Series ~ Kim Harrison. Witches, Vampires, Pixies and that's just the three living at the church. It's easily one of my favorite "ther paranormal as the normal" series out there; and although I'm mourning two losses I still can't wait for the next book.
6. The Dresden Files ~ Jim Butcher. What's not to like about a wizard that advertizes in the phone book?
7. The Odd Thomas Series ~ Dean Koontz. He can see dead people. My kinda guy.
8. The Argeneau Vampire Series ~ Lynsay Sands. Vampire family with the last name Argeneau that manages to find their lifemates in the best RomCom ways, so read it if you like a few smiles with your vampires.
9. The Rogue Hunter Series ~ Lynsay Sands. Hey, the Argeneaus had friends who hunt vampires and these are their stories. Not entirely a separate series, it can be picked up without having read about the Argeneau family, (it's just better if you have) stories so I list it separately to be fair.
10. The Anita Blake Series ~ Laurell K. Hamilton. Love it or hate it, it's a series that provokes strong feelings and one I can't get myself to walk away from.
11. The Merry Gentry Series ~ Laurell K. Hamilton. See above.
12. The Undead Series ~ MaryJanice Davidson. I include this more as a prompt to get me back into the books. I read them faithfully for the first 5 and then drifted away due to the loss of character. I'll recover tho.
13. The Southern Vampire Mysteries ~ Charlaine Harris. This is last and alone because it's on the bottom of my TBR pile and I've only looked at a few pages of the first book. I am keeping up with it, I'm just not as drawn to it as I should be yet.
