What is your favorite series?
Picking a favorite series is almost as hard as picking a favorite book. Almost, but not quite. I have two series that I genuinely love for what they meant to me as a child. The first is Nancy Drew, a series about a brilliant girl detective who always solves her mystery. In school all the books were about boys and their dogs. You know the ones I’m talking about- Old Yeller, Where the Red Fern Grows, and the like; so having books at home about girls who saved the day was great. I still read that series to this day, an have a lovely collection of the novels.
But the most important series in my life will probably always be Harry Potter. I grew up with Harry, Hermione, and Ron. I watched them fight the darkness, and win. I can’t think of a better lesson in life than that dragons can be slain. And as an adult, I continue to go back to this series. I reread the books every couple of years, and hoard beautiful copies. It’s probably the only set of books I really wish I could read again for the first time.
