Follow Friday



Welcome to Follow Friday hosted this week by Parajunkee and Alison!
The main idea behind FF is just to go see a bunch of new blogs you may never have seen before, and follow the ones you like (and they’ll follow you back!) It’s a total win/win, so take a peek around and follow me!

This week’s question is:

Q: Do you have a favorite series that you read over and over again? Tell us a bit about it and why you keep on revisiting it?




The series I read over and over again and then some is Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series. There are a few reasons for that. One, because I really love these books. Who couldn't? They have everything: romance, funny moments, vampires, weres, ancient gods and myths and so much more fun elements. The second reason is that I need to refresh my memory. Sometimes, I confuse characters (oops, sorry!) or I forget if something happened or not. The myths and characters are numerous in this series, so it's bound to happen at some point, but it's not bothering me. Another reason would be the sarcastic comments some of the characters make. I love a good sarcasm now and then, and in this series it's like another language. I totally love that. I could probably think of some other reasons, but these three are the main ones.

Another series I'm currently re-reading is Harry Potter. The reason is that, even if it doesn't feel the same way as it felt when I first read these books, it's the book I grew up with. I remember getting grounded for staying really late one night (I think it was about...2 in the morning or something) and reading with a flashlight, under the covers. Before you ask, yes, it was a school night. And the waiting for a new book, trying to figure out who's going to die at the end of the book and who's going to live, waiting for hours to buy the newest book and refusing to do homework before finishing it. It's never going to be the same, but I can't help but reread this one.

What's your favorite series to re-read?

  4. Ahhhh! How did I forget about Sherrilyn Kenyon?! I've read ALL of the "Hunter" books at least twice as well as the "Born In" Series (those I've read probably 4 or 5 times) Good call!

    Thanks for stopping by! Following back :)

  5. Hey Jess! I haven't read the "Born In" series yet. I will though, very soon. Just as soon as I finish the Demonica series.

  6. Hey :)
    Ha, the Dark Hunter series is on my to-be-munched-on list since the begging of the year. Just like Ward's BDB was. I can't wait to sink my teeth in it, so to speak :D

    And I get what you mean about Harry Potter, those are really awesome books.

    Following you now, and thank you for stopping by my place xDHave a fab weekend!

  7. Hopping through. I think Harry gets better with every read. There's always something new.
    And I really want to read Kenyon's books.

  9. You are right, Livia, Ward's BDB is a very good series. Can't wait for Tohr's book next year.

    @Alison: You have a very good point, he is better with every read. You should read Kenyon's books, they're awesome. I might be a "tad" obsessed with the Dark Hunters but shh! don't tell LOL

    @Emma: Thank you very much for visiting! I hope you had a great weekend
