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?

A. Seems like I'm always mentioning Harry Potter lol, but that's a series I re-read usually once a year. Every time I read the books I'm enthralled all over again and I re-discover why I love them so much. To put it simply Harry Potter is amazing.

Another series I re-read a lot would be The Wicked Lovely series. It's one of my favorite faerie series, I adore the characters and love immersing myself in their world over and over again. I'm a huge Melissa Marr fan period but this particular series will always be one of my favorites.

Of course Richelle Mead's, Vampire Academy series is a big re-read favorite. The characters, the setting, and the storyline in general constantly keep me coming back to the series. I can never get enough of VA and I'm sure I'll be returning to it for years and years.

Now to go a bit old school, it's not a series but one of my favorite books of all time is Wuthering Heights. The first time I read it was when I was 13 and I fell in love with it. The writing is gorgeous, and the characters are fascinating and memorable. I re-read this book every year, sometimes more than once. It's one of my favorite classics, and if I have kids someday they will be reading it at least once lol. For anyone who hasn't read it, I definitely recommend it!

Again not a series but, I re-read my favorite plays by Shakespeare constantly (Shakespeare geek here). A to name just a few, Romeo and Juliet, The Tempest, Macbeth, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. I honestly think that if you haven't read anything by Shakespeare, you're really missing out. He was a true literary genius not only in his time, but for centuries to come.

And with that I shall stop my rambling, although I could go on and on lol :p

Happy Friday lovelies!

  1. Hopping through. I love VA. I haven't re-read the series, but after reading Bloodlines, I thought it would be fun to re-read all of VA.

  2. I rarely reread but I have reread the Chronicle of Narnia often. I just made a display with the Wicked Lovely books today so I was thinking about the fact that I need to read at least the first one to get a better idea what it is about.

  3. I've reread Harry Potter the most too, but I'm trying to reread the VA series as well. I don't own them, so I'm working on buying them and then reading them again :)

  7. Those are some pretty good series, but you didn't list any of my favorites. you suck j/k from your list of series, I think wicked Lovely would be the one I think is the best.

  8. Nice choices! Harry Potter is the BIG answer today! I didn't even think of classics! Really the only ones I would love to go back and re-read are Dracula and The Count of Monte Cristo! Two totally different books! ;)

  10. It makes me so happy seeing Harry Potter all over the place for this Follow Friday. I also have reread that series about a zillion times. That story will NEVER get old. It'll outlive Dumbledore.
