Favorite Book Series

Writingprompt_bookWrite On! Favorite Book Series

This week’s Write On! Writing Prompt is either really easy or really hard, depending on how you look at it. Let me show you what I mean . . .

Zoe1 asks:
What is your favorite series of books?

I figure a lot of people have this dilemma – either you know what your favorite series is immediately, or you have so many you can’t decide! I fall into the second category. I have too many favorites. Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, The Sisters Grimm, Cirque du Freak, Dear Dumb Diary. And does The Hunger Games count, or is that just considered a trilogy? Zoe1, you pose a tough question!

What about you guys? Let Zoe1 and all of us know YOUR favorite book series in the Comments below. We can’t wait to hear!

    I LOVE HARRY POTTER! It’s the all time best series. I,for one, can’t stop reading it! J.k. Rowling was very crafty and creative. She engaged me in her fantasy stories that should be read by everyone. I also love other series. But, a genre I read the most is fantasy. It just makes me think and has great creative thoughts to it. Meanwhile, I as well love to read all kinds of genres from a-z. For, reading is my favorite activity.

    I have to agree with most of the posters. It is really hard, but I would choose Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Nancy Drew and if you’re like me the Baby-sitters club, My Sister the Vampire, Shiver Linger and Forever Series and the Cherub Series I could go on but it would give you a headache

    Wow Zoe1 that is a difficult question I would have to say my favorite series are The hunger games, the 39 clues, and Harry potter. But those are only the top ones i’m reading right now I love all books.

    This is a good, but very difficult question for me, because I love to read! I guess though, it would probably depend on the mood I’m in. Sometimes Harry Potter, and recently, I’ve just gotten hooked onto the Matched trilogy, even though Realistic Fiction is my favorite genre.

    - The Inheritance Cycle

    UMMMM…..hard to decide. I love the HARRY POTTER books because of the mystery and how the author came up with all those interesting spells . she is a very creative thinker and i love it! i want to become a stupendous author just like her. i also like the TOMORROW GIRLS books. many of you may not have heard of it before but its really suspending.i think the sell it in barnes and nobel if you want to read it. (there’s 4 books)
    even though im a young age i am amazed at these wonderful authors and i read a lot.

    Hmmmmmm, that’s a hard one. I think that I would pick Harry Potter, or Percy Jackson, Junie B. Jones, or Magic Tree House.
    If I had to pick though, I would pick Harry Potter.

    The Hunger Games. No doubt about it. I love all the action with a perfect mix of drama and love between Katniss and Peeta. I love all the characters too! The hunger Games is an awesome series. Or trilogy. The Hunger Games is my favorite, but I do like Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, Alex Rider, The Heroes of Olympus, and A Series of Unfortunate Events.

    I’m definitely a person who falls into the first category. Whenever I am asked this question, I immeadiaty have an answer: WARRIORS!!! I started reading the Warrior books about three years ago, and they’ve been my favorite ever since I finished the first one: Into the Wild. I like a lot of different single novels and series, but Warriors will always stand out to me. Those books are special; something about them just… Clicks, with me. I’ve read so many good books; before Warriors I used to say I had too many favorites to pick just one. I still wanna give credit to all my other favorites, but the title of MOST FAVORITE BOOK OF ALL TIME will forever belong to Warriors. -pearpearthe14th

    Between the Infernal Devices and Harry Potter and Dear America for me. I definitely enjoy other series, like The Morganville Vampires, the Darkest Powers, and several others. Now, my favourite BOOK is a completely different matter…

    Hmmm…Probally either the Unicorn chronicles by Bruce Coville, The Inkheart series by Cornelia Funke, The Spiderwick chronicles, or the Edge chronicles(the first Edge chronicles book is AWESOME. I own it and have read it, like, seven times.)

    I’m like a four way tie between the Hunger Games, Harry Potter, the Chronicles of Narnia, and Gallagher Girls. Personally, anything that has more than two books in it should be able to count as a series, since it has an expanded story arc.
    Any idea when the STACKS and Write It message boards are coming back up? The message on the Announcements bulletin still says that they’ll be “Read-Only through December 28,” but it’s already the 2nd of January…

    I’m not sure if The Hunger Games is a trilogy or not. But if it was a series, The Hunger Games would be my #1 pick. (I can’t wait until the movie comes out)! If it was trilogy, then I also love Allie Finkle. It really is a great book because I relate to it so much, and I bet a lot of other people relate to it too. Thanks Zoe1 for making me think about all the amazing books that I have read.
