Playing Series Catch Up

I'm one of those people who loves to start a series but has a really hard time finishing them, or even getting current until the next book comes out.  The worst part is that this is an especially big problem if the series is AWESOME.  I think it's because I know the books will be good, so saving them for when I need a sure thing seems like a good idea at the time.

This means that I have a lot of series laying around that aren't current or finished, and no real plan for how to get them finished or current before the next installment comes out.  One of the joys of refocusing on books I own or just want to read for fun is that some of these languishing series can finally get finished.  Here are some series that I'm currently working on getting current with (and a picture of the book in the series that I'm on):

The Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews- I love this series to teeny tiny pieces but have yet to read the most recent installment.  Need to get on this.

The Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole- one of my two favorite PNR series and I haven't read the most recent installment.  I know, I know.  On a side note, the audiobook versions of this series are FANTASTIC. Fan. Tas. Tic.

The Flavia de Luce series by Alan Bradley- so far I finished the second book (The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag) and am about to start the third.

The Charles Lenox series by Charles Finch- the first two books were awesome and are a great way to spend a weekend.  I'm looking forward to getting caught up!

The Lady Julia series by Deanna Raybourn- Julia and Nicholas Brisbane are a great leading couple and the first book that introduced them was great.  Not sure what my delay has been in getting to the rest of this series.

The Lady Emily series by Tasha Alexander- another great historical romance/mystery series with a great first installment.  Better get busy!

The India Black series by Carol K. Carr- detectives and a madam and historical mysteries, oh my!  I've only read the first book and am ashamed to say that I only knew about the second book in this series, not the third and the short story.  Shame on me!

Lots of great reading ahead?  Do you have any series on your shelf that you've been meaning to catch up on?   Share, share, share!
