Welcome to another Monday Potpourri. Today’s event is Musing Mondays, hosted by Should Be Reading.
This week’s musing — courtesy of http://ladywithbooks.wordpress.com– asks…
Do you have a favorite series? Do you have a favorite book out of that series?
I have enjoyed some books in a series, as well as the series themselves. I think my all time favorites are Sue Grafton’s Alphabet Mysteries. I always eagerly await the next one on the list.
Her latest was V is for Vengeance. (Click title for review)
The main character is Kinsey Milhone, who tells the story as if she’s talking to friends. I’ve been a big fan of all Grafton’s books, and especially enjoy Kinsey, with her quirks, like peanut butter and pickle sandwiches and her fondness for a neighborhood bar that offers very strange cuisine.
Another series that I’ve loved is Debbie Macomber’s Cedar Cover stories. The last one I read was 1022 Evergreen Place.
I’ve also enjoyed books by Trigiani and Evanovich, but haven’t read enough books in their series offerings to reach a conclusion.
What keeps me reading favorites in a series is the chance to revisit beloved characters; it’s sort of like coming home again.
What about the rest of you? Do you have favorites?
