I looooove binging book series, and if you’re reading this blog post I guess you either love it, or you want to start too. I’ve suggested 8 book series below, all of which I’ve binged, or read pretty close together, and one point or another. They’re all fantastic, I recommend them highly, and only, like, 2, are series that you would see on every single other blogger’s list… yes, they’re totally Harry Potter and The Mortal Instruments.
- Harry Potter by JK Rowling (7 books)
Of course this has to make the list, despite being the most cliche recommendation on here. When I first read the series, I read them all back to back within about 3 weeks! #WorthIt
- The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare (6 books)
This is a series that I don’t think I actually binged, but I forget details so quickly it’s basically necessary to binge. They’re not too long, so perfect to snuggle up with and just pick up one after the other!
- Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton (3 books)
I binged this trilogy and thoroughly enjoyed it! It’s definitely worth binging this series because you will be in agony knowing if your favourite characters are going to live or die…!
- Fairytale Retellings by Jackson Pearce (4 books)
I frickin’ adore this series, and it definitely doesn’t get the hype it deserves! All of the books are interlinked in a way that you’ll only notice if you’re perceptive (it’s so satisfying realising that though!) and this is definitely a series that made me want to be a writer. It’s brilliant, and I can’t recommend it enough!
- Murder Most Unladylike series by Robin Stevens (6+ books)
Earlier this year, I spent about a week reading one of these books every night, and it was brilliant. The 7th comes out pretty soon, so right now is the perfect time to binge books 1-6 before Death in the Spotlight is released.
- The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare (3 books)
I don’t know why TMI is earlier on this list than TID, because I preferred this series wayyyy more, and I so wish it’d been 6 books too. Jem, Tessa, and Will are three fantastic characters and the setting is one of my favourites – steampunk Victorian London! If you’re hesitating reading these hyped books, pick up the first, and you’ll be desperately wanting the rest.
- Stalking Jack the Ripper series by Kerri Maniscalco (2+ books)
This might be my all time favourite series. I LOVE these books so much, and would actually scream it from the rooftops if I could, but I think the neighbours would call the police on me. *ahem* It’s fantastic. Book 3 comes out soon, so there’s only 2 books for you to binge before then!
- The Young Elites by Marie Lu (3 books)
I feel like this series should be way more hyped than it is. Maybe it was when it first came out in 2014, I don’t know, but it’s a fantastic, short fantasy series, and I would highly recommend binging the lot. They’re short enough that they could probably be in a bind-up, and would be the size of all these fantasy books of a monstrous size that are beginning to appear (read: Sarah J Maas…).
I hope that these series have given you some ideas to binge read in the future! As I said, I love all of them, and can highly recommend them all.
What’s a bingeworthy series you love?
