    SERIES STUFF: Begin the Begin

    Series Stuff was inspired by this post by Paperback and Planners. It lists the series I’ve started, those I’ve finished, the ongoing ones and those I couldn’t be bothered with anymore.

    I wanted to do everything all together then realized it was going to be one long ass post because I have too many series in my reading list. I decided to break it down into four separate posts. The first is about the series I’ve started on.

    Click on the links for the reviews.

    The Hawthorne Throne by Kaitlyn Adbou – the sequel is still nowhere near in sight. The Unseelie Prince was a 3-star book and I am sufficiently intrigued enough with Noah’s fate in the hands of the devious Fearghas to want to continue.

    Tigers and Devils by Sean Kennedy – this is one of those sports romance books I actually enjoyed. Still waiting for that urge to pick up book 2 because I’m that terrible a mood reader.

    Innocent by Victoria Sue – A historical series with only two books out. I don’t know if the author will continue this or if this is finished. I liked the first book, The Innocent Auction, so I will read the second book.

    Death and Destruction by Patricia Logan – Another one of those action-packed partners-to-lovers thing I started on. Here’s hoping I’ll commit.

    Snow & Winter by C.S. Poe – This series is an homage to Josh Lanyon’s Adrien English series with dare I say, a better, more likable love interest. I enjoyed the first book, The Mystery of Nevermore, so I’m looking forward to the next ones.

    Sidekick Squad by C.B. Lee – The first book, Not Your Sidekick, was an OK take on the superhero genre with a cute FF couple and a trans secondary character. Who in turn is the star of the second book. Definitely will be picking that up too.

    Signs of Love by Anyta SundayLeo Loves Aries was one of the best books of 2019 for me. I just started on the second book, Scorpio Hated Virgo, which was touted as an enemies to lovers story. Unfortunately, there wasn’t even a smidgeon of hate between the two protagonist to consider them as enemies. I don’t know, maybe I should go straight to the third book.

    Psychic Detective Mysteries by S.C. Wynne – One of the many psychic procedurals on my reading list. I finished Shadow’s Edge mostly on the strength of Kale William’s narration. I’d willingly listen to the second book just to hear him again.

    Green Men by K.J. Charles – Anybody who’s read the About Me page knows that Spectred Isle is my all time favorite book. Sadly, this series seems to have fallen into a limbo because the author has still not released the sequel. I’m keeping my hopes alive because I love the green men too much.

    Tensorate by J.Y. Yang – I read The Black Tides of Heaven because I really love the cover art. The premise was super cool. The story itself was ok. Not sure if I would read the second book but I’m not writing this off yet.

    The Kingston Cycle by C.L. Polk – I was enchanted by the alternate Edwardian world of Witchmark so I’m looking forward to the sequel.

    Not Dead Yet by Jenn Burke – I’m not a particular fan of the MC’s narrative voice but this paranormal series has an interesting take on the ghost lover trope that’s worth exploring.

    Marital Bliss by D.J. Jamison – This series is showing a lot promise. Surprise Groom was a really well-executed take on the fake relationship trope.

    Out of Darkness by Britanny Cournoyer – This stalker series started off with a bang. Captivated was very riveting and suspenseful.

    Ramen Assassin by Rhys Ford – I liked the premise. Book one didn’t blow me away but I liked it well enough to continue

    The Hitman’s Guide by Alice WintersThe Hitman’s Guide to Making Friends and Finding Love was my introduction to Alice Winters brand of snark. I’m hooked.

    Future Series by Kate Hawthorne & E.M. Denning – The blurb for book 3, Future Ex-Enemy, grabbed my attention. It turned out to be one of the best enemies-to-lovers stories I’ve ever read. Now I have to read the first two books.

    Paranormal Princes by Charlie CochetThe Prince and His Bedeviled Bodyguard was totally adorbs!!! But don’t tell Owin I said that. Now I just need to meet the other princes.

    Hamarrson & Dempsey by Elle KeatonConspiracy Theory is a book with a cover that does not do it justice. Why put some random bare torso when you can put something more significant. Nonethless, it’s a good series opener that made me look forward to the next books

    Lords of Discord by Jocelynn Drake – A family of musically-inclined vampires out to sow discord among their kind? What’s not to love? Claiming Marcus is a promising start. I’m super excited to read about the rest of the Variks

    Cabrini Law by Parker St. John – My motivation for this series is Maksim. I wasn’t that impressed with Elliot’s book, Risk Assessment. Elliot and the other lawyers were all likable but Maks stole the spotlight whenever he’s on page.

    This list is as comprehensive as it could get. I have a poor record of finishing series so I’m hoping I could finish at least half of those listed here. What series have you started on recently?
