Last summer, I finally got around to reading Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Novels. A few pages into Ferrante's sprawling story of a decades-long friendship, and I was hooked. While my family swam and tanned during a lazy beach week in Massachusetts, I jumped from book to book with fury. Sand is still in between the pages of each one.
While I adore Ferrante's literary, intelligent series, there are so many more collections of novels where that came from. Book series aren’t limited to Harry Potter or fantasy and science-fiction genres. In fact, there’s a series for every taste, from literary and witty, to warm and indulgent.
