|Click here to see details about Let’s Talk!
I’m so excited that Melissa at i swim for oceans likes discussion posts because sometimes I get chatty and have things to say. Melissa has opened her Let’s Talk event up to the rest of us and I’m excited to be a part of it. Thanks, Melissa!
According to Melissa:
“Let’s Talk will feature questions or prompts, which I will answer too. Love it or hate it, weigh in or don’t, it’s my hope that Let’s Talk will at least get you thinking…and maybe even get you discussing with the rest of us!”
This week’s question:
What series do you love? or,
I just can’t get enough of…
Y’all I’m not one of these
While I love a standalone, I ADORE a good series.
Here are some of my favorites:
(in no particular order)
You guys, this series takes my breath away.
I have never loved alternate universes
and parallel worlds so much before in my entire life.
Also, I really want a Iorek Byrnison of my own.
Can someone help me with that?
While it is wildly controversial where I live (Bible-belt, you guys)
I read it proudly and recommend it wholeheartedly.
Okay, everybody just hold up for a second:
If you haven’t read this series, you need to right now.
I’ve never read anything like the Nevernever world
that Julie Kagawa created for these characters.
Not only that, but she made me fall in love with a freakin faery.
I’m Team Ash forever and always, you guys. That is all.
I cried when I read The Iron Queen. (If you’ve read it, you probably did too.)
And then I cried when I read The Iron Knight
because the series was over.
If Julie wrote twenty books in this series, I’d read them all.
And then I’d read them all AGAIN.
I have never read a series so well-crafted and well-written as this one.
I have never had my heart so swollen with joy
and yet beaten, battered, and broken…
but it felt so good and I loved every single second.
It took me forever to go through these books
because I loved them so much.
A SOLID RECOMMENDATION by my good friend Lisa
I have passed this recommend on to others who have loved the series.
I don’t care who knows that I love Todd Hewitt madly,
even though he is a bit too young for me.
I have his name tattooed on my heart.
He is a fighter for all things good.
(And Patrick Ness needs to be both hugged & slapped for
breaking my heart the way he does.)
I’m not sure any explanation is necessary here, right?
I mean, they’re the most magical books ever.
Do you have a series that
pulls at your heart?
Tell me, I want to know!
