Blogmas 2018: Favourite Series

Over the past few years, I’ve managed to read around 200 books. Most of those I would probably say are series. Please don’t ask me why or how I keep getting into series even though I really, most definitely should not start anymore. Perhaps 2019 will be the year of completing series for me?

After realising how many series I actually read, I thought it might be fun to tell you about a couple of my favourites. I have only included five so that I can talk to you a little about each one. These are in no particular order because I am indecisive meaning I can’t rank them but also because I enjoy them all for different reasons.

  • Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling – You didn’t think I could write this list without including this series did you? Despite the fact that I do sometimes feel that J. K. is starting to take things a little toooo far with the series, it will always hold a special place in my heart.
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins – I read this after finding it on Tumblr. I always loved to read when I was younger, but when I got to high school I definitely didn’t read as much as I now wish I had. I received the Hunger Games books for Christmas in 2010 and read them all within two weeks of receiving them. And then I read them again. And again. It’s quite an important series to me because of how much I loved the books when I first read them.
  • Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins – If anybody asks me what my favourite book is, particularly contemporary, Anna and the French Kiss will always be one of my answers. This book re-introduced me to reading by gently pulling me back and I’ve been reading ever since. If it wasn’t for this book, I would never have this blog, nor would I be part of the amazing book community. Most importantly, I wouldn’t have met all of my wonderful reader friends who I am so thankful for. This book and series is more than a series to me now, it’s introduced to me a whole new part of life which I couldn’t imagine being without now.
  • Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco – This series is a historical murder mystery and I absolutely love it. Having done History for my degree, this was right up my street already but combine it with murder and mystery, a genre that I am seemingly falling more in love with every day, and bam, this series has become a very firm favourite of mine. I cannot recommend it enough and just love it.
  • Caraval by Stephanie Garber – I’ve read both books in this series as soon as they’ve been released and I honestly love both books currently out. I was in some need of a bit of magic in my life, and this book definitely delivered that. The cover is gorgeous, the story is captivating and I just love it.  would fully recommend checking this series out. I’d even recommend you read it during December as it’s got a lot of magic in it, just like the festive season!

There are some of my favourite series. There are a couple more, but as you can see, my explanations are a little long! Are any of the series on my list part of your favourite series at all? If not, what’s one of your favourite book series?

  1. I was going to be shocked if you hadn’t had Stalking Jack the Ripper on this list, but there it was! I liked the Hunger Games when I read it but I’m not as into dystopias any more so I don’t think I’ll ever re-read it. Some of my recent favourite series that I’ve finished have been ADSOM (of course) and Rebel of the Sands. One series that I really need to get back into is Snow Like Ashes – I loved the first book but I haven’t picked up the rest! Great post Vicky! ❤
