Follow Friday (5)





Follow Friday is hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View and Alison at Alison Can Read  It is another way for bloggers to make new friends and followers.  So jump in and say hi! Than jump over to either blog and post a link to your blog (be sure to follow the required steps!).



This week's question for Follow Friday:


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


Ok, my answer is Twilight. I kind of cringed when I saw this question, because I know that there are a lot of people out there who "hate Twilight." And inevitably I get comments about how awful it is, how this it is, how that it is. Well, this is my blog and I am going to be honest. I love this series. I have read each book 7 times. And I feel like each time, I find something new. I never get tired of it. There is just something in this series of books that calls to me and pulls me in. I can't explain it, I don't even try. There is just something about this story I love. It's funny that this question came up, because I was just looking at my bookshelf yesterday (gazing at my 4 copies of each book I have) and thinking that I needed to re-read them. It's been too long. 


The newest series I have become enamored with is The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. I love it! It gives me the same lost in another world feeling that I get when I read my Twilight books. I have read it twice, but I know that I will read it again and again.

  4. I can't blame you for saying Twilight (or cringing about it) since it's definitely a love or hate series. I think I love the first three books, and then as soon as Breaking Dawn came out I sort've fell closer to the 'hate' side and have been corrupted since then. I did enjoy The Mortal Instruments series, but these days I feel like I need to reread them just because I read them too fast!

  6. I chose Twilight too, and so did a lot of other people, so don't cringe! I get so ticked off when people want to dog on the books. Everyone likes something different...so they need to get over it! LOL!

  12. Twilight is just one of the things it's cool right now to "hate." Something else will come along and the hate hipsters will jump on that bandwagon, too. :P

    I have only read Twilight so far, but I really want to finish out the series!

  13. I don't like Twilight, but neither do I like much paranormal romance so I'll leave that be. I think when you just love a series, you can never admit to yourself that it ended. You keep going back to it as if to suggest it is stilling happening and you can still enjoy it.

    And 7 TIMES?!?! That, at least, deserves commendation!
