"Reading a great book trilogy allows you to avoid the agony of a book hangover, because, hey, there's already another book waiting for you," writes K.W. Colyard.

I don't know about you, but I really want to read more books this year, and I think I've figured out a way to do it. I've picked out a few great book trilogies to read this year — along with some longer series I've been wanting to start, finish, or re-read — and I'm pretty sure I can commit to making it through at least one of them before I'm ringing in the new year again.

I want to focus on the best book series here, because I really think they're the perfect solution to a lot of common book nerd problems. Take the book hangover, for example, when you've just finished an amazing story and don't want to read anything else, because you want nothing more than to dive back into the world you just left. We've all been there, and some of us have even bounced from one book hangover to another, if we lined up a great TBR.

Reading a captivating book series allows you to avoid the agony of a book hangover, because, hey, there's already another book waiting for you. And then, once you've finished that one, there's another. After that, you might have a book hangover — or you might be so obsessed with the author that you read everything else she's written. At the very least, you've prolonged the inevitable, and isn't that what we're all doing anyway?
