Let’s talk about…
Hi guys, are you ready for another post about a whole series of amazing books? Yeah… I wasn’t really asking, cause you don’t have much choice :) Today I’m gonna talk about Beneath series written by Meghan March. I wasn’t really planning to sink into series of seven books, but when I started the first one I just knew I was gonna finish it, because no other book will have a chance to capture my attention if I don’t read them all first.
This is a perfect place to assign blame for basically my disappearance from the world, nice going M ;) When you recommended it to me I knew I had to give it a chance, but I did not expect to fall in love with this series that much, but you somehow knew. And this situation shows that you don’t have to live in the same country or even continent to know someone :) usually it’s my sister A who’s my #BookDealer but not in this case… so thanks again M :)
You have to know that when I started this series I seriously thought I was gonna read the first one and get back to it some other time, yup good plan right? Not really, because when I finished one book I was already hooked, so curious about other characters and their stories I haven’t been able to put them down. It’s like a drug, because you need the next fix ;) seriously, it’s like you read one book and there are people in it that will have their own stories next, so you read another book, and another and so on, it’s brilliant really ;) You can say all you want about lack of time to read that many books one right after the other, but when they’re that good you’ll make time… I certainly did. I read them non-stop for like two or three weeks. The stories may not be that long but put together I’ll say it’s quite an accomplishment. Basically I was working (unfortunately when you work in the office you can’t really read for like eight hours, that sucks!), eating, sleeping and the rest of the time reading. Ok maybe I wasn’t sleeping that much, because of all the reading but it was definitely worth it ;)
There are many things that I love about this series like amazing stories, each one of them different from the rest, so I never got bored. Main characters, so group of fantastic people, but all of them had flaws which make them more fun to read about. Chemistry between couples was so electric that I had to make pauses to cool down and maybe looking back at it it’s not the best idea to read those kind of books in public transportation ;) Let’s not forget about secondary characters that really make a difference like Daphne or Harriet - so hilarious ;) And of course we have New Orleans as a place of events… I imagine it’s a magical city, with special vibe, that I would definitely love to see one day :) Oh and I think Meghan March is one of the few authors who can write someone as a villain or a semi-bad character and then make him a hero of the next story… And I know you’re not supposed to judge book by it’s cover, but have you seen these? Come on, just look at them... if that’s not gonna make you pay attention to the actual books, I don’t know what will ;)
Those books were all so good that it’s quite impossible to make a list with my favourites. I loved them all, so today I’m gonna go with chronological order :)

I should add that, even though I know that books from series can be read as standalones, I highly recommend you to read them in order. First of all, they’re great so you should read them all, and additionally you’re gonna want to be up to speed with every character because many of them are secondary characters in previous stories and then get his/her own book :) love it!
Confession time: after reading this series I went right into her next one called Mount Trilogy... that’s because the main hero makes quite an appearance in the last one of this series and I was super curious about him, don’t judge me ;) It was so great that he and his story (three books) deserves a whole other post all to himself.
So did I do it? Are you convinced to give this series a try? I hope so, because it will be worth it, I promise :) Anyway that’s all from me for today, see you next week :)
