C.J. Milbrandt (cjmilbrandt) | 31 comments Trilogy Collection
One of the perils of participating in A-Z Challenges is that I often read the first book in a trilogy (because I need its initial), but I don't immediately reach for the next books (because I am looking for different letters). The following list will fill in as I conquer the sets. And since the unfinished trilogies look so dreadfully forlorn, I will diligently complete them forthwith. Says I.

The Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings, #1) by J.R.R. Tolkien The Two Towers (The Lord of the Rings, #2) by J.R.R. Tolkien The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, #3) by J.R.R. Tolkien

C.J. Milbrandt (cjmilbrandt) | 31 comments Four of a Kind
What could be nicer than a quartet? Four parts. Four corners. Foursquare. Four points on a compass. Four sheets to the wind. I'll fill in the sets as they're finished. Nary a gap in the ranks shall remain!

C.J. Milbrandt (cjmilbrandt) | 31 comments Quintessential Choices
This quirky collection is quite the handful, needing all five fingers. Five books per se and per set! There may be some jostling in the ranks when a series sprouts an unforeseen point five or prequel, but to keep things tidy, five there shall be and five they shall remain.

You're not talking to yourself! I love reading people's updates on their reading overall. And your titles for each section are awesome! Keep it up, C.J. :)

I have a real weakness for series, so I usually reach for stories that unfold over multiple volumes, but once in a while, I read a stand-alone. Here's a place to tumble them together.

Somewhat related to the rainbow post above, I wanted a place to gather up all the books in beautiful browns. Coffee and caramel and coffee hues, magnificent for their earthy, woodsy, tea-stained palettes.

CJ, those collections of Middle Grade book covers are so aesthetically pleasing! I could stare at them all day. I actually just created a thread for us to all share our Middle Grade recommendations here. You seem to know a lot about the genre, it would be cool to get your insight. Obviously no pressure - it's just for fun. ;)
