Oh yes please! I already own all the books (because I assumed buying the books would make me read them faster) and I would love a buddy read for it! I've never read this series and have heard great stuff about it but.

I am joining too. I am going to say Voracious, but probably will end up with Addictive (just not admitting the addiction yet).
I am enjoying seeing you all's lists, so mine, tentatively is the Turner series by Courtney Milan (3) read updated 2/20/19);
the Simply series by Mary Balough (4)) read 2 (updated 2/20/19)
and the Westcott series by Mary Balogh (3) (none so far)
Added Texas Destiny series by Lorraine Heath (3) read in January!
Added the Scandalous Gentlement of St. James (5) (updated 2/20/19) - really liked the last novella, Gentlemen Prefer Heiresses.
I can't figure out how to change my challenge goal tally. I may have put in too many books.

One series down and two to go! I completed Carhart series by Courtney Milan. The first two books and the first series written by Courtney Milan. I liked Proof by Seduction but didn't enjoy Trial by Desire as much. (view spoiler)


message 27: by Meredith (new)

Meredith | 13 comments I don't seem to be following my original plan. Ah well.
I read Texas Destiny for the February read and liked it so well that I read the next two in the series (Texas Glory and Texas Splendor). I think Texas Destiny was by far the best, with the next one and the last one the least.
Then I started reading another book of Lorraine Heath's from the library and seem to be reading her Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James series (1st two so far).
I have listened to Courtney Milan's Turner series (Unveiled before this year; Unclaimed and Unraveled 2019). They are her usual well-plotted and witty books. I liked Unveiled the best.
Two series down. I will have to up my goal.

I didn't follow my original plan last year at all, so I think that's normal to change it up through the year. Due to the February read, I also plan to read the Texas.Trilogy now. Thus far I am pleased with my series choices this year though.

Well done, Shaz. I have read two challenge books so far (out of 18 LOL) one from Pennyroyal Green and one from Windham Brides, but not finished any of my series yet. I can see I've got a little bit of work to do!

I think I might go back to the Spymasters series next. (Joanna Bourne). I liked the ones I've read, so it's about time I tried to finish that series off.

Meredith | 13 comments I just read Devil's Daughter, the new book in the Ravenels series by Lisa Kleypas. Not sure if this counts as a series, because I read the other ones as they came out. I might just have to re-read them. Reading this one, I was reminded how much I like Lisa Kleypas.

I am reading the last one in the Simply series by Mary Balough.

Ok, I am facing into it - switch me to Addictive.

It definitely counts as a series. Reading the latest releases in a series or completing a series counts.

Updated your level.
