30 Day Book Challenge | Day 3 — Your favorite series, and your favorite book from the series

I’m honestly not much of a series person. First, it seems like many series are YA (maybe I haven’t looked too deeply) and I’m not really interested in YA. Second, I know how I am with TV shows… I start it, gotta finish. And with so many amazing books out there that pique my interest more and have been on my TBR for FOREVER, I am not really compelled to get into series much. I suppose I do have an answer for this one, even though I feel like I’m cheating a little bit…

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. Maybe cheating because I have heard Tolkien considered this ONE book in three volumes… however I did also just read The Hobbit, so I guess… it does count! Well, it has been a long time since I read LOTR, but I think I would like to say the first book, The Fellowship of the Ring, was my favorite of them. I feel this way because, like I’ve said in other posts, I’m not a big fan of fantasy in general, and (after watching the first movie), this first book completely enveloped me into the Middle Earth world and I read the other two based on my feelings about this first one. It was like Old Toby, the finest weed in the Southfarthing. I was like a hobbit with Elvish lembas (can’t just eat one). I was all like, “It comes in pints??” (okay, enough!) Well played, Tolkien. Well played.

  1. I agree, most series seem to be in the YA genre..which I try to stay away from 😉 But ahhh, LOTR. I got me some big big love for that series 🙂

  2. I remembered over the weekend that I was completely hooked on the V.C. Andrews Dollenganger Series when I was in middle school (“Flowers in the Attic,” etc.)! My favorite of those was definitely “Flowers in the Attic,” the first of the series.
