Can You Come Visit Me?....Again and Again?

Not "me" personally...I mean...your favorite characters in a series. I'm not just a writer, I'm also a reader! As a reader, I find myself drawn to reading series. I love them! I enjoy visiting the same characters over and over again. I'm particulary fond of suspense and mystery. You get a great puzzle to solve, while also watching the main character grow as a person, possibly improving their investigative skills. My hope when I read a series is the main character, usually a heroine, learns something, and improves her life in some way, as I read each novel in the series.

Now, reading them has made me want to "write" one myself. The first story in the series is already plotted and I hope to delve into this summer after school gets out and I have more time. Wish me luck!

Some of my favorite series are:
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
    • These books really drew me in. You couldn't help but root for Katniss and applaud her for taking her sister's place in the Hunger Games and YES! I loved the movie as well.
  • The Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich
    • The humour and silliness keep me reading. I love Lula! And some of the stuff Stephanie and Lula get into keeps me in stitches.
  • The In Death Series by J.D. Robb
    • Roark. Enough said. I'm waiting for Dallas to get pregnant!
  • The Seven Realms Series by Cinda Williams Chima
    • I love this series. Can't wait for the next book to come out this summer.
  • Rick Riordan Series
    • Seriously....The Percy Jackson Series, The Heroes of Olympus Series, and the Kane Chronicles are some of the best YA/MG paranormal series I've read. He's a master at it!
  • The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris
    • I have actually "listened" to this entire series. The latest came out this month and my next stop on the web is to purchase it so I can listen to it on my iPhone. Can't wait!
Okay...I could go on and on and on....but I won't. So. Tell me. Who and what are some of your favorite series and characters that you like to visit over and over again?

Have a great day!
