Okay, some of my favorite series are: 1.) Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones (paranormal, romance, laugh out loud funny too) 2.) Experiment in Terror series by Karina Halle (or any book by Karina Halle). This EIT series is paranormal, horror, romance. Amazing - but really anything by this author is great. Literally anything by Alice Clayton. Contemporary romance and laugh out loud funny.

Fire and Fury bored me to death but parts of it are funny. I like detective fiction and all these authors have at least 10 book series: Robert Crais has a great series about Elvis Cole an LA Private Detective that are funny and there’s a new one out. James Lee Burke has a Dave Robicheaux series that is beautifully written but they can be kind of sad. Also a new one just came out. Love all the Lee Childs’ Jack Reacher series same. If you have been to Venice there’s a great series by Donna Leon which have slower plots but are very atmospheric and it’s like going to Venice each time you read one.
