Follow Friday (9)

Hey guys! It's Follow Friday time, and guess who the feature is!? ME!!! I am SO excited for this, and SO happy they decided to feature me. :D So if you're following me, I LOVE YOU! If you're not, that's cool, but I think you might like it here. ;D

Anywho...onward with the question!

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?

 Okay, I obviously have more than one favourite series. So I'm going to make a LIST. Because lists are fun, and organized, and cool looking.

  • The Harry Potter Series

     I think this one is at the top of most people's lists, and it's really no wonder why. The series is so great. It was the most imaginative and unique world, (IMO), and it can be read by ALL ages! No racey subjects or anything. Yes, there's always that zealot who damns it because of witchcraft, but guess what!? Disney has "witchcraft"! Mickey Mouse is a wizard! Oh, I should stop here. I'll get all fired up and go on forever about that. Anyway, my love of this series is really hard to put into words and if I did, it would go on forever. But my main reasons are the world, Hermione, the magical air of it (see, I don't know how to say it! Don't judge me.), the plots, and the depth of characters.  I re-read this series because I enjoy it and it serves as an inspiration in more than just a writing aspect.

  • The Lord of the Rings Series

    I haven't re-read this series completely, but I refer back to it all the time! I use it as my backup for arguments, or ideas for writing...things of that sort. I'm mainly obsessive over the elves and their clothes and their living places. Like Rivendale. GAH. I just want to jump into that book and be a part of it. :D

  •  The Inheritance Cycle

    This series inspired me to write stories. I wrote a lot before, but it was Eragon that made me want to put my mind to creating stories. I found a beautiful world of writing, my best friend (Nicole @ Word for Teens), and passion that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I owe a lot to this series and it's amazing author, Christopher Paolini. II re-read this many times so I can analyze how Paolini built such a diverse and detailed world, including its creatures and plots.  It's sorta my reference book. :D


    So, what did you pick!? 


  1. Congratulations on the feature! I reread HP and Lord of the Rings way too much as well though I totally forgot about the second in my answer.

    I read Percy Jackson series over and over. Also the 39 clues. Everyone keeps recommending the Mortal Instruments, I may give this series a try.

  18. Hi Liz - congratulations on being one of this week's featured blogs! :)

    I remember picking up Eragon and being amazed at the world Paolini had created and that he was so young at the time. A small voice also whispered to me at the back of my mind that I might be able to do this too. I'm really glad the series has inspired you and I hope you're writing brings you lots of joy!
