I used the series feature to find out if there were any new books in the Mode series by Piers Anthony (I had read the first 3) and I saw that there is a fourth, so maybe I'll go back and read that someday.
Generally I am reluctant to start series. I just don't want to be tied down. That said, I do own the entire Series of Unfortunate Events (Lemony Snicket), the three Violet books from Melissa Walker and all of Jasper Fforde's Tuesday Next books though I still have to read the latest. I bought all three in Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle series with plans to read them all. I also recently acquired Extras to complete Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series and I'm anxiously awaiting the 5th book in Shannon Greenland's Specialists series. And I will pick up Death by Denim (by Linda Gerber) since I enjoyed Death by Bikini and Death by Latte. And I think that's it for series I own.
I have checked out series from the library, such as a couple of VC Andrews (way back when), Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer and I read up to book 9 of the Left Behind series.
I've read quite a few first books of new series lately and am trying to decide if I want to continue. Hunger Games sequel? YES! YES! YES! Triple Shot Bettys in Love (sequel to Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty). Very excited! The second in the Joy of Spooking series? Most definitely. The Resistance (sequel to The Declaration)? Considering. Sequel to Far World? Maybe, but probably not.
I'm sure I'm forgetting some. It's amazing how many series books there are!
And now... on to this week's kitty pic!
