So here is the next installment of my Favourite Things Series. This time I am sharing some of my favourite book series, as the title says. I am a huge reader and I usually enjoy reading a series of books only. It is very rare that I find a stand alone book I really enjoy. I think that this is because I get so into the book and the characters that I don't want it to end.
I have added a brief synopsis of each of the series under the pictures to give you a hint of what it is about. You may see a trend in the series below..I am in a Fantasy/Paranormal phase that I just can't seem to shake. Like the my Favourite TV Shows in Part 1 some these are old favourites and new, but all still a very good read.
Let me know what your favourite book series is in the comments below.
