I love reading. I have some very eclectic choices in what I read as you may be have seen me post on Instagram. I am a big fiction fan, I much more prefer to lose myself in a story rather than think when I am reading a good book. But I do enjoy non-fiction occasionally and books about homeschooling. Finding a great book series can be hard, but I have a few different options here for you.
Book Series for this Summer – Not for your Kids

I love reading book series, no pesky ending that comes too soon leaving you wondering about a character’s fate, that is at least drawn out for a few books. I have read a lot of great series and you just might like as well, and might want to add to your reading list for this summer.
Nora Roberts – Pick One
I am a HUGE fan of Nora Roberts, I think, I hope, that I own everything she has written under Nora Roberts, including some amazing series such as the Bride Quartet or the In the Garden Trilogy, or the Key Trilogy, or the … I really could go on and on here. This is the one author’s who’s books that I buy myself without guilt.
(Not all my Nora Roberts pictured below… the hard covers don’t fit on this bookcase.)
This series might just get you through the whole summer with eight books in the series. The Outlander series focuses on 20th-century British nurse Claire Randall, who time travels to 18th-century Scotland and finds adventure and romance with the dashing Highland warrior Jamie Fraser.
I really enjoyed this book series, and then the movies. I kinda wanna read them again this summer, and as my kids have challenged me to keep track of all the books I read this summer, I just might.
Divergent: One choice can transform you.
Insurgent: One choice can destroy you.
Allegiant: One choice will define you.
City of Bones
Enter the secret world of the Shadowhunters with this handsomely packaged boxed set that includes City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls, and City of Heavenly Fire.
Game of Thrones
Here’s the super short version: Several noble houses fight a civil war over who should be king, while an exiled princess tries to find her place in the world, and the kingdom is threatened by some rising supernatural threat in the north. Boom. I have this book series on my to-read list because it is a LOT, and everyone just loves the TV show, but I like to read first.
And while I linked to Amazon for each of the series of books listed here, I’m not expecting you race over to Amazon to buy them all, or any for that matter. The library is a girl’ best friend after all, but I like to be able to read reviews and the back cover when possible and the library doesn’t have that feature. But if you wanna buy them all or one of them, then GREAT, after all, books are amazing and can be reread again and again.
