This week's question:
What is your favorite series that you've
finished all the books (more than 3 books) to?

Well, I'm sure the obvious answer is going to be Harry Potter... and I admit I'm on that bandwagon too :) but there are a few more I'd like to share as well, so here's a list:

1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
2. Ouran High School Host Club by Bisco Hatori
3. Spiderwick Chronicles by Holly Black & Tony DiTerlizzi
4. Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
5. Discworld by Terry Pratchett
6. Sandman by Neil Gaiman
7. Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan
8. Fablehaven by Brandon Mull
9. The Nicholas Flamel Alchemyst Series by Michael Scott

Now, I'm reading quite a few other series that are more than three books that I love, but they're not finished yet, so technically, I haven't finished all of the books XD I didn't include those. The stories above are strictly finished series... welllll.... except Discworld... but man... I *HAD* to include Pratchett. I'm not even sure it counts as a series... but I've been reading them in chronological order, so I'm counting them that way.  :)

This week's question:
What blogger would you most like to meet in real life?
Tell us about him or her.


I'm going to be honest, I've never really thought about it.
Meeting new people in general gives me a mini panic attack.
I'm not saying I'm a shut in, I get out, I socialize... but all with people I've met in person first.
For some reason, I have real anxiety about meeting people I've only talked to online.
It's not a safety thing, it's a "Man, what if I totally disappoint them?" thing.
Crazy, I know.

Also, please check out my review, HERE, for the upcoming release,

  1. I can relate to that. I am crazy shy with new people, although with the few bloggers I've met I seem to do okay talking! Since we obviously have the same passion for reading! But I totally get where you're coming from because I am definitely like that with other people too!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    1. I think I mostly just fear the one-on-one, I always get super nervous when I am afraid I have to keep the conversation going... and then my mind goes blank, and then it starts running through everything we could talk about, and I become too befuddled to just pick a topic and go with it. LOL!

      Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Hi! I'm a new follower :) Gosh I really love your list of books! Cannot wait for House of Hades (assuming you've read the spin-off to PJS, and I really hope you have!) Plus, I never really used to read manga but Ouran High was definitely a memorable read. Love the twins, still! I love your blog, by the way :)

    1. I do read the spin-offs, and LOVE them (I'm sure I've reviewed at least one of them around here somewhere, lol)... I've also read the Kane Chronicles... but I felt that listing everything by Riordan would be excessive... lol!

      I'm a huge fan of manga, I love the art style... and just thought of another series I should have added above, Deathnote. XD

  5. I'm stopping by. I found you through Book Blogger Hop! I think it's great you've read so many series in books, I've not see many bloggers follow through in this.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Oh, I love longer series... there are quite a few I didn't list because the books are still being made (except Discworld, I just couldn't resist)... but The Dresden Files, Stephanie Plum novels, Dirk Pitt novels, etc, etc, etc... most of the "long series" books I read would fall under the "guilty pleasuer/summer beach read" genre, LOL

  9. Oh, the Harry Potter series wins, hands down!! I've seen it on several blogs, too, and I've mentioned it in my post. Well, it's a GREAT series, and deserving of all the love!!

    Of the other series you mention, the one I want to read the most is The Chronicles of Narnia. I've wanted to do so for a very long time...don't quite know why I haven't, yet!

    Thanks for sharing! Happy Reading!! :)

    1. Haha, yes, I expected Harry Potter to show up quite a lot, Twilight too. They're both series that have really influenced a lot of people, and gotten a lot of folks to pick up a book who might not have, otherwise. Narnia is great, although, for me, I really had to slog my way through A Horse and His Boy... it was just really boring to me. I have no idea if this is a general opinion of this book that others have as well, or if I just wasn't in the mood to read it, lol!

  10. I definitely understand how you feel. It could be kind of strange talking to someone only online. I'm a new Bloglovin follower.

    1. Yeah, I get total anxiety about meeting new folks when I feel there are expectations XD

  11. The Spiderwick Chronicles while I haven't read them, I have a student who is, which makes me happy. And Rick Riordan is a mighty writier.

    Thanks for visiting my blog on the hop.

    1. I love, LOVE Riordan's work. Getting kids psyched about mythology? AWESOME!

      Spiderwick is just cute and fun... not the most educational... unless you're looking for an education in faerie lore XD, but heck, anything that gets kids excited about reading is awesome.

  12. I CAN be introverted, and I'd probably be a bit shy to meet the people I follow online, but at the same time I think I'd be more excited about it than I would be to meet most other people, just because I know we have stuff in common and have followed them for long enough that I feel like I know them. I do understand being shy, though. :D Great answer! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  13. I can completely relate! For the most part I'm extremely shy when I meet people and even people I may know but don't interact with a lot. I've gotten better as I've gotten older but that tendency to sit back and just observe is still there. Thanks for stopping by! Old follower :)

  14. I have a bad habit with series: I start them, fall in love with them, and refuse to finish them. So I'd be no darn good with this question. :-)

    1. Haha, I do the same, I've got a couple now that I'm avoiding reading the last books, because then they'll really be finished!
