Sunday Series #8

Sunday Series is a weekly meme, to be posted on Sundays, dedicated to the several books belonging to a series of books.

Since majority of the Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal Romance, Contemporary, Dystopia (and other genres too) books are written as series, I thought arranging all books of a particular series in one place will be helpful and nice!
Each week I'll post about one series (I'll pick it randomly) and will post about all the books of the series. My post will include the author bio and short synopsis of each book. Hope you, my readers, will find it interesting! :)

The Series I chose for this week is:
