Outlander Series Overview

 

 

One of my reading goals for this year was to read the entire Outlander series (which I did). I wanted to read the books after watching the first two series of the TV show. I have loved all the books and Jamie and Claire have become one of my ultimate OTPs.

 

Reading this series took commitment and is definitely the longest book series I’ve read. Most of the main series books are over a 1000 pages and on average took me a week to a week and a half to read. Plus there were all the novellas and  the Lord John Grey series. I know that when I read this series I wanted to read it properly, so I read everything.

 

However is you are interested in the story but your not sure if you want to read the entire series (I get it, it is pretty hefty). I think reading just the first book is great as it ends on a happily for now scenario and not really in a cliffhanger (of course I recommend reading the whole series).

 

I have compiled all my reviews in the one place to make it all easy to find.
