Follow Friday


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?

 
For me it has to be the Janet Evanovich Stephanie Plum series. Although book 17 left me sorely disappointed, the early books were a riot. If I'm having a bad week or just need something light and frivolous to read, Evanovich delivers. With crazy characters (some of which vaguely resemble my own family) and outlandish misadventures, it's hard not to appeciate the series.

Another reread for me (as I suspect it is for many bloggers) is Harry Potter. I enjoy reading the books again before seeing the movies to refresh my memory and give myself a better basis of comparison! And while the movies are generally pretty true to the books, they'll never be a replacement!

  2. Hopping through. Harry Potter is definitely a re-readable series. I re-read it every year.

  4. I have heard so much about the Stephanie Plum books lately. I've never read one though. I'm thinking I should, soon!

  5. I haven't re-read Harry Potter (mostly because my sister stole them!), but I use to love the first couple of Stephanie Plum books.

  6. I haven't read any of the Stephanie Plum series, but I am familiar with Janet Evanovich. I keep forgetting to add the books to my wishlist. Thanks for reminding me!

  9. A friend of mine in high school was always reading Evanovich, but I never read one of her books. I'm thinking maybe I should pick one up next time I'm at the store, and try it out.

    Happy (belated!) FF!
