What’s next?

I’ve been late to the party when it comes to reading a lot of popular books, but when the book is one in a series that usually works to my advantage- no waiting for the next one to be written!  There are few things I love more than finding out that the book I’m enjoying is the first in a series, because that means I’ll have months of no thinking about what to read next.  Of course, half the series I fall for don’t have numbered titles, and trying to figure out the order of the books isn’t always intuitive.  The What’s Next Books in Series Database is basically my favorite website in the world at times like this, because all you need to do is type in the author’s name, or the book or series title, and it gives you a list (in order!) of all the books in the series.  Genius.  You can even just search for series in a particular genre, if you don’t have a book in mind but are looking for a new series to obsess over.

While I bide my time waiting for George R.R. Martin and Patrick Rothfuss to write the next book in their series, I’ve been immersed in the (fairly ridiculous, but also addictive) Outlander series.  However, I’m always looking for suggestions!

  1. Couldn’t agree more – it’s heaven to fall into a series and not have to make decisions for a little while! A co-worker of ours recommended Louise Penny’s Three Pines mysteries, and I’m happily spending my winter in Canada…

    I have enjoyed the Maisie Dobbs series by Jacqueline Winspear for several years now; Maisie Dobbs is the first book.

    Does it order the books by publication date or by where they fit in the timeline? This is always tricky to me when playing catch-up. Do I read them as they came out? Or put in order of when they take place? Pre-quels? Ugh
