I thought it would be cool if our group had a series that we could all read together and finish together to discuss!

So what series would you like our group to start reading in April?

You can nominate any series but make sure its no longer than 8 books!

It is five books. The first is world building. It is interesting, but I have heard that people took a while to get into the series. I loved it from the start. It is an amazing series.

I vote for The Iron Fey series as well! I totally agree, I've already finished the first one and would love to read & discuss the whole series.
Although I LOVE both The Parasol Protectorate series (and still need to read Timeless), and The Mortal Instruments (and Infernal Devices) series, so I wouldn't be opposed to those either.
But since I've read all (or most) of those, my ACTUAL vote is for The Iron King (Iron Fey, #1) by Julie Kagawa The Iron Daughter (Iron Fey, #2) by Julie Kagawa The Iron Queen (Iron Fey, #3) by Julie Kagawa The Iron Knight (Iron Fey, #4) by Julie Kagawa

I absolutely love this series, but I won't second it sorry. There are other books I want to read badly.

I nominate The Enemy (The Enemy, #1) by Charlie Higson currently has 3 books in the series.
Also Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy, #1) by Richelle Mead and Witch and Wizard (Witch and Wizard, #1) by James Patterson .
I would recommend The Recruit by Robert Muchamore but there's 13 books in the series at the moment, almost 14.
