The Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge is hosted by Long and Short Reviews. This week’s topic is: favorite book series and why.
Where do I start without scaring you off?
The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind. It’s pretty standard fantasy, but I love the idea of a Confessor – a woman who, if she touches you and unleashes her power, you cannot lie. You also become her slave of sorts for the rest of your life, too, but yanno.
The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. These books never fail to make me laugh and god only knows we all need a good laugh these days.
Kathy Reichs’ Temperance Brennan series. Forensics have always fascinated me, so the idea of a forensic anthropologist blew my mind. Tempe has a bad habit of doing dumb stuff, but overall, I like her a lot and love Andrew Ryan.
Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin. I stumbled onto these books 25 years ago and fell in love. It’s something I definitely need to revisit soon.
Anything by Dakota Cassidy. I don’t care if it’s her Accidentals, the Plum Orchard books, or even her Witchless in Seattle books. Whatever you pick up by her, it’s going to be funny as heck. As an aside, her Kiss & Hell series is still by far my favorite.
Two series by James Patterson: The Women’s Murder Club and NYPD Red. I’ll read anything the man writes or co-writes, but these two are my all-time favorites. Lindsay and Zach need to team up sometime.
Lastly, Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide series. These are my absolute favorite books ever and bring me endless joy and laughter.
Okay, I think that’s enough for now. I tried to mix it up a bit and give you something different that what I usually push on this blog, so hopefully you find something new and interesting.
