There was a time when a book was only a book. Written and read, perhaps it began conversations and captivated imaginations. Maybe it was taught, passed around, or even influenced the whole world.
Yet, with the book series, it is different. We keep track of the release of a book, then its sequel. And at times sequels take years to come out. This blog is for all the book nerds who love to binge read at the first given opportunity. Our list contains the completed book series so that you don't have to be on a cliffhanger.
With changing times, book series have become a huge business, offering fans licensed products, toys, and games, retail stores, and TV and film adaptations.
