“This is what I was made for. The thought arose as naturally as breathing. She flexed her fingers, felt power gathering hot in her palms. No, not hot – vital. Her power was not an intangible thing, a trick of the mind. It was the power of the world itself, and all that lived inside it.”

5 Series I Want to Catch Up on in 2018

Earlier this week I shared some series that I want to start this year, and today I’m going to talk about some series that I want to either catch up on or complete this year. Like with the previous posts, I’m not including series that I’m caught up on besides their 2018 releases in this post, though some of these series do have 2018 releases in them.

So here are 5 series I want to catch up on this year, and while this isn’t necessarily a TBR I want to try and catch up on 3 of these as well. Continue reading

  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!
