Readers, have you ever finished a GREAT book, then realized it left behind a hole no other book will ever be able to fill?
Today’s guest is Andy Serrato, a reader who fell into the arms of a mega-popular series with a welcoming fandom and enough pages to smother yourself in… and ever since, she’s struggled to break her obsession and pick up new books in different genres.
Now, I’m all here for knowing what you love and reveling in it, but Andy truly wants to expand her reading life… so I’m doing my best to get to the core of what delights her about this series, and open a portal to other reading worlds that will be just as satisfying in new and exciting ways.
Let’s get to it!
