No new post from me today (wish me luck, I’m braving the shops with SmallBoy later) but you can check out this guest post from me over at Once Upon a Series. Chrissie is doing a new feature on her blog where bloggers talk about their top ten favorite series of all time. Can’t wait to see who is next!
To a lifelong bookworm, narrowing down your ten favorite series is pretty difficult! Like a lot of readers, I like series books because I enjoy revisiting characters and worlds that I find compelling. I also like the longer plot arcs you can explore with a series!
In the end, I decided to not just pick my ten favorite, but those that I felt had the most influence on me as a reader and a writer. As I looked over the list, I found a great combination of fantasy, history, science fiction, and mystery, all genres that have contributed to my own novels.
There’s no possible way that I could rank these from favorite to least favorite, so I am listing them in the order that I read them. I hope you enjoy!
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
I think I started this series with my parents reading to me, and I ended reading them for myself. I was a huge Narnia fan, and I still enjoy reading them to this day. Lewis knew how to write for children without writing down to them.
Read the rest over at Chrissie’s site, and check out her blog for great reviews, series news, and other guest posts!
Thanks for reading, and thanks to Chrissie for letting me take over her blog for the day!
