I've mentioned before that I am somewhat of a slave to a series and trilogies. If I am going to read a book that is part of a series then I have to start at the beginning. If I knowingly read a book that is say number 3 in a series, it really does my head in! And if I start a series, then the probability is high that I will keep reading the series!
I don't really know why but I was sitting here this morning, and suddenly I wondered how many series am I reading at the moment. And I am shocked...shocked I tell you, but how many series I am currently reading. I have broken them into two groups - the first group are the series that I am currently reading where the next book in the series is currently published. The second group will be series where I am waiting, in most cases impatiently, for the next book to come out!
I am sure that there are some that I have forgotten. I should also note that I haven't included any series where I own the books but haven't started it yet, or those series where I have finished one book and have no intention of reading any further.
So here is the list of series that I am currently reading where the next book, and sometimes more, has already been published:
Bridgertons by Julia Quinn - one more and then the spin off anthologies to read of this one!
Weather Wardens by Rachel Caine - Next book is book 4 which is Windfall
