It’s that time of year again. The one where we make a resolution and stick to it for a full year. Well, try to stick to it at least.

Why not try to read a complete series of novels for 2017 ? Just be realistic about it: avid readers may choose a series of twelves books and go through it in a week, while others could choose a series of three books and take the full year to finish it up. Both options are equally good in my opinion, as long as you’re comfortable with your choice.

Here are some suggestion for you guys: the first book in a few series we have at the library, from various genres.
