12 Book Series That Will Get You Addicted

In my opinion, book series are the bees knees. They’re addictive, even when they aren’t that well written, and there’s multiple of them! Usually, when you finish a book, that’s all there is, but with a series, there’s more to explore. The story continues, and there’s the possibility of rejoining the adventure with your beloved characters. You get to stay in the world it takes place in longer than if you were to read one book! It’s like an extended vacation – you don’t have to pack your bags just yet, you can relax a bit longer. In my opinion, here are twelve of the most addictive series out there.
