Hello! Welcome to my little corner of the universe. Join me as I make my way through my infinite reading list one page at a time.
Day 3 - Your favorite series...
I have to present today's picks beauty pageant style, because decisiveness is not a trait I possess and there are a number of great series I want to shine the spotlight on.
2nd runner-up: the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. This series is magically delicious and I am eagerly awaiting book #3.
1st runner-up: the Tristan and Isolde series by Rosalind Miles. A beautifully written series based on the classic tale of The Romance of Tristan and Iseult.
Winner: the Lonesome Dove series by Larry McMurtry. Amazing characters. Amazing setting. Amazing story. McMurtry's writing transports you back to a bygone era of the American West. I first discovered my dad's collection of McMurtry novels as a teenager and was hooked after the first word.
Honorable Mention: The Babysitter's Club series by Ann M. Martin. I couldn't let a list of favorite series pass by without at least a mention of the series that started it all for me as a young reader. The Babysitter's Club rocks! As a kid, a trip to the mall meant a visit to Waldenbooks or B. Dalton's and a chance to browse the shelves for the latest BSC book or Super Special edition.
