I have a pile of books TBR, including A Great and Terrible Beauty and The Titan's Curse (haven't got the Labryinth book yet). Let's see, last series book I read...
Oh, SEARCH FOR THE RED DRAGON by James A. Owen. Second in the Imaginarium Geographica series. Wonderful series, wonderful book, can't wait for the third.

I think I'm going to read the Twilight novels, but I'm buying them in e-book.

Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy.  So much fun! I'm irritated that I have to wait till next june for book #3 -- Who does she think she is, taking her time to write good books!  I want more Gallagher Girls NOW!

I really need to stop reading books in series where the next book isn't due out for months....

I just read "Airhead" and it was so much fun!  I want more! And I have to wait until May!

I've read quite a few first books in a series without following through and reading the others.

Recently, "Wuthering High" (the Bard Academy Novels)-- I was interested in this because I'm always into boarding school stuff (I went to one), but it's not my thing. Voice was a little too chick lit-y for me.

"Gossip Girl"- I could see why it appeals to people. Does not have the chick lit voice so much as a very strong one of its own. But again, not my thing.

"A Great and Terrible Beauty"-- I actually really liked this. I think I started the second one and maybe stalled around the time they all left to hang around London for the holidays. But at some point I'll pick it up again.

Adult books: The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Wilig (hilarious!); Living Dead in Dallas by Charlaine Harris (suspenseful!); Empire of Ivory by Naomi Novik (dragon-riffic!)

YA: Rumors by Anna Godbersen (the Luxe series is one of my favorite guilty pleasures); Frostbite by Richelle Mead (and now the third one's out already - it's so hard to keep up!)

It's Magic Treehouse for me too.  My kids just started getting into them and we're only on book 3.... looks like Jack and Annie are going to be around for quite a while.

Just read "Exorsistah" which is supposed to be the first in a new series.

My friendly neighborhood YA librarian recommended it, and, as usual, she was right!

So now I have yet ANOTHER series that I have to sit around waiting for....... <rolls eyes>

I read all four Twilight books in one week (last month).  Before that, it was the Harry Potter books.

Ahhh, to be reading Harry Potter for the first time ... lucky you.

I'm trying to get a copy of the latest in the 'City of Ember' series, #4. It's MC's are the original characters from the first book and the blurb looks good.
Am also going to read the 2nd in the "39 Clues" series, and I've just finished the latest Artemis Fowl. Excellent as always.

I just finished the first book in the 'Gregor the Overlander' series, and I loved it!  Picked up book two today (as well as the newest 'Runaways' graphic novel, which was guest-written by Joss Whedon, and which B&N is shelving in YA).

Pippa--I read the 4th CITY OF EMBER, DIAMOND OF DARKHOLD, and it was a great end to the series. You'll enjoy it when you read it!

A new mg mystery series I've discovered that I really enjoy is by Peter Abrahams, the first title DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE.

Also I enjoyed the first title, FOUND, in a new series by Margaret Peterson Haddix.

I'm also reading Meg Cabot's mediator series!  I'm also working my way thru Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle series.

Both are great series.  If you like Cabot's mediator series, you might like her 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU series too.  Her main character in that series has a supernatural power, but one to find missing people instead of mediating ghosts.  And if you like darker stuff like ghosts, I'd recommend another series by Garth Nix, The Old Kingdom Trilogy.  That series is one of my favorites (after Harry Potter of course :)).

Sloppy Firsts etc. series (5 book series). Loved it. Its YA crossover. Also The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes, and The A-List Novels, and my personal faviorite the Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging series.

There are so many good books coming out this year, I got so excited, there's nothing like a good series to get hooked on:
The Immortals by Alyson Noel
The Wake Trilogy by Lisa McMann
Need by Carrie Jones

and I'm looking forward to Melissa Marr's 4th in her Wicked Lovely "series"!

Debi Gliori's 'Pure Dead' series. My youngest daughter was insane for these, and I got hooked on them too. Very clever, very funny.

I'm in the middle of "The Spiderwick Chronicles."  I've actually been reading them for several months, and I just started Book 4.  While I do find them enjoyable, they're not quite as suspenseful as other series I've read, and once I put them down, I'm not in a rush to come back to them.  Once I'm finished with these, I'll probably start "Lament."  I got that and "Ballad" for Christmas, and I'm really looking forward to reading them!

For children's series it would be Gordon Korman's "On the Run" series.  Prior to that was Korman's "Dive" series.

I finished the third Harry Dresden book a week or so back. I'll be getting the fourth book from the library next week. In terms of children's fiction, I started rereading L.J. Smith's Night World series for nostalgia purposes. It's holding up really well. :)
