Book meme

My friend Kathy started this meme and I thought I’d play along. It’s just 30 days of answering questions about books, which will hopefully get me back in the habit of updating here. (and I swear I’ll have something to say about knitting soon, I just really need to take photos of things)

Day 1: Your favorite series of books (with more than 3 in the series)

The Harry Potter Series, by J.K. Rowling – There’s not much to say about these that I didn’t say about a month ago. I find them incredibly moving, especially for books ostensibly written for children.

The Women of the Otherworld Series, by Kelley Armstrong – Wonderfully fluffy series about werewolves, witches, vampires, etc. The things I love about the series are the revolving main characters, and the way Armstrong writes strong female characters. They might not always know what they want, but once they figure it out, they’re going to get it. There have been some ups and downs with the series, but I’m hoping its back on track after the most recent book.

Those two are probably my favorites, but I read several series currently. J.D. Robb’s …in Death, Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse are all in progress. It’s to the point where I need to stop picking up new series because I don’t have time for the non-fiction and non-serial novels I want to read.

Here’s the list of the schedule for this meme, I’ll only be including this today because it’s going to make my posts way too long otherwise.
