Okay So I love to fall in love with new series. I mean crazed in love like I first did with the Twilight series. My latest is the Elemental Series by Brigid Kremmerer

I waited a very long time to start this series. Not sure why, I had the first book on my shelves since it came out. So I found they started to put them on audible and decided to listen to them. I was hooked. I love this series. I love that each book has its own story about one of the elemental brothers and also that the entire series has a story. I love all the elemental powers. I love all the characters. And I love all the love stories between the characters. It just totally rocks!
