With DVD box sets and streaming services more and more people, especially young people, are binge watching. Binge watching is exactly what it sounds like: watching a lot of episodes of a show at the same time. Binge watchers will often watch an entire season of a show back to back.
So, how do we harness this energy for books? By reading an entire series start to finish! You can use this idea for a book display, book list, lock-in, or even for book discussion if you have some hard core readers. Here are ten finished* series to get you started.
Gallagher Girls by Ally Carter
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
The Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Stiefvater
Curse Workers by Holly Black
Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness
Hourglass by Myra McEntire
Summer Series by Jenny Han
Stupid Fast by Geoff Herbach
More binge reading? Try Lauren Kate’s Fallen, Condie’s Matched, Dashner’s Maze Runner, Carrie Ryan’s The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Artemis Fowl, or if you have a few months Naylor’s Alice series. There are a ton of great options for any kind of binge reader.
*We all know that “finished” is a little questionable these days with e-novellas, companion books, and authors writing follow-ups ten years later, but we’ll go with it for now.
