Five Favourite Overall Series
Love the topic! LOVE IT! I adore series, I am a series whore. I do enjoy a good standalone, but I am a total sucker for series. I love being able to become attached to characters and watch them grow and change over several books. I fall in love with characters and so I enjoy being able to continue a journey with them onto another book.
1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
It was always going to be number one! This is the ultimate series for me and it always will be. Nothing will ever compete with the magic that is Harry Potter. It wasn't just a series of books, it was a childhood, it's memories and moments and it played such a huge role in my life. I fell in love with the characters and I laughed with them, hurt with them and cried right along with them. No series has ever captured me the way Harry Potter did and I will love it forever, until I am old and grey.
2. His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman
Lyra Belacqua and Pantalaimon stole my heart almost as much as Harry Potter did. This series is perfection and I would recommend it to absolutely anyone. I love Lyra so much as a character and trust me, if I ever have a daughter I will be fighting with my boyfriend to name her Lyra. This series made me want to go to their world, to have my own daemon, my own Pan. I adore this series and writing this makes me want to reread it again because it has been too long.
3. Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman
This book series should be read by EVERYONE! It's such a wonderful book series and I adore every single book. The author hinted to me when I met her that she is working no a fifth book and I can't wait! I want that fifth book so badly it actually hurts. If you haven't read this, why not & go buy it now!
4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This had to make my list, I love it. It got me into the dystopian genre and for that I will always be eternally grateful. It gave me so many wonderful characters - Katniss, Peeta, Finnick, Johanna; the list is endless.
5. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
This was one that I recently read but I fell in love with the series straight away. It became an instant favourite and I wanted to reread it all straight after finishing. I definitely recommend this one!
The Sight by David Clement-Davies
Childhood favourite. It's truly unique and a brilliant piece of work. Don't be sceptical, go give it a go!
