From my list on bingeable book series for escapist readers.
Who am I?
I have always been an escapist reader. From fantasy to historical fiction, my favorite books have transported me from my life—providing me with the adventure and romance that I crave. I’m a lover of series, specifically, because they offer a longer, more immersive experience. As a writer, I hope to offer my readers the same respite from reality that my favorite series have offered me, and I’m publishing my completed five-book series, The Raek Riders series all at once in an effort to do just that. They will be available March 19th, 2024, ready for escapist readers to binge from start to finish.
Melanie's book list on bingeable book series for escapist readers
Why did Melanie love this book?
Lovingly referred to as Acotar by many, this series was my introduction to new adult fantasy, which changed my life.
I’d always loved YA fantasy for the immersive worlds but found its *echem* romantic limitations frustrating. Insert A Court of Thornes and Roses, which has enough world building to transport but not enough to get bogged down in and plenty of spice. I found my genre when I read these books.
Okay, I devoured these books—the work friend who recommended them looked distinctly alarmed and confused when I returned to her only a matter of days later to tell her how much I’d loved them.
