Books to Read this Summer: Binge-worthy YA Series

There’s nothing better than discovering a complete young adult book series to binge-read all at once. And summer vacation is the perfect time to plunge headfirst into YA novels and not come up for air until absolutely necessary.

These captivating YA book series are all complete or nearly complete, so there’s no waiting for the next book to come out. When you finish one book in the series, you can toss it aside (or lovingly place it on your shelf) and grab the next one. Rinse and repeat until you’ve binged them all this summer!

Which series are you binging this summer? Let us know at @getunderlined!
