Before I start telling you about my top three favorite series, here’s a disclaimer: I love Harry Potter of course, but for the sake of exposing people to other series that don’t get as much attention, I am excluding it.
Okay, here we go!
- The Mara Dyer series by Michelle Hodkin
I’ve read this series as the books have been released. I believe I read the first book on what used to be Pulseit.com, which was a website by Simon & Schuster where a free young adult would be released every month or so on the website.
Anyways, this is a psychological thriller-type story, which kind of splits off into some other interesting aspects (don’t want to spoil it!) It’s about a girl who calls herself Mara Dyer at the beginning of the novel to hide her real identity. She recalls her life from the moment she woke up in a hospital after being the only survivor among her friends in an accident. She and her friends were in an abandoned building when it collapsed and miraculously Mara survived. She doesn’t remember everything that happened because of shock and PTSD, but when she finally does…it’s unbelieveable.
- The Wake series by Lisa McMann
I have reread these books so many times and it never gets old! I found out about the series after they were released. At a book signing for Cassandra Clare, Lisa McMann was also there. I didn’t know anything about the series, but it sounded intriguing. I ended up buying the whole series right there and getting them all signed.
This one is about Janie Hannagan, a girl who gets sucked into other people’s dreams and experiences them from her own perspective. I don’t want to give too much away because this is a suspenseful read with twists and turns. Basically it’s a supernatural meets mystery-type book.
- The Edge Chronicles by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell
A fantasy book series. I read this series when I was in elementary school. I don’t remember too much about it, but I really want to reread it soon.
It’s about a boy named Twig who was raised by woodtrolls. The whole series is about him discovering who his parents were and discovering his own identity along the way.
I’m also surprised that I haven’t met many people who know about this series, so check it out!
I don’t know why, but I’ve found myself not wanting to write on my blog for a very long time. I got so tired of posting book reviews, even though I wasn’t reading that much either. I felt like I sounded pretentious in my reviews, so I’m going to try writing something else.
