It has been a long time since I started reading a series and then couldn’t stop. Most series I start, I whine to anyone who will listen about how I wish authors could just write one book, that everything doesn’t need to be a series. That is the trend right now in YA literature, but it still annoys me. I usually want to read just one book, get a good story, and be done with it.
But the series I am reading right now, The Sky Chasers series by Amy Kathleen Ryan, is so good I am glad it is a series. I started reading Glow, the first book, because I had the opportunity to meet the author, and I like to read books of authors I will hear speak. This is a sci-fi series, and at first, I wasn’t sure if it would keep me reading because I have kind of gotten away from reading sci-fi (I think I overdid it a while back…). But, wow. I. CAN’T. STOP. READING. THESE. BOOKS! I devoured Glow, then had to go get Spark. I read that over break in about 2 days, and now I am on the final book, Flame. The characters are complex, the story is intriguing, and the themes make me think.
Read these books! You can read my reviews here.
