The Classy Bookshelf: Series-ly In Love

As I have stated before on The Classy Bookshelf, I enjoy, no, LOVE, a good series book.  Heck, I enjoy a bad series book.  (See: Sweet Valley High in my middle school years)

I have been on quite a reading kick lately.  Despite the fact that I haven't been paying for books lately (GO ME!!  Go public library!), I have still managed to find some decent books to check out and devour on my kindle.

First up, somebody mentioned a million years ago that they had started reading this series.  I hadn't a clue what it was about... but now that I know, it's totally up my alley.



 The Gallagher Girls' series is  a book about young female spies and their top-secret all-girls spy school.   It's totally adorable, and yes, young-adult but I'm into it.  They are quick, easy reads.  Perfect for the pool!

Next up, the Fallen series by Lauren Kate. 



These books could be considered science-fiction.  It's about fallen angels, demons, and magical powers.  I know it sounds cheesy, but there's a love story woven in and it's very compelling.  After adjusting to the mythical element, I flew through these books.  The fourth book is soon-to-be-released and I found out Disney has purchased the rights to all four books. Yes please!!

Next up... I've got the 50 Shades books ready to go as well as Insurgent.  I can't believe I haven't ditched my current book to read that one, actually.

Soo... what are you reading this week??

I am reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green (tearjerker!).

I cannot WAIT to see your tweets/comments when you start reading Fifty Shades...

I can't wait to read Insurgent! I had to finish the 50 Shades books first (didn't love them) but now I'm ready to start. I'm also waiting on a book called Flagrant Conduct to arrive from the library. (It's about the landmark Lawrence v. Texas Supreme Court case.)

I am trying to read the first 50 Shades book. Not sure if I like it yet. LOL

I don't get a lot of time to read these days, so I take my time in 15 minute increments. :)

The Fallen series looks right up my alley! I love science fiction and fantasy books!

Just finished the last book in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series...so, so, good. And different from what I usually read.

Up next...50 Shades and "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Greene (sp? Green?)

Thank you for the book suggestions! I'm such a sucker for Young Adult books these days.
