#SixForSunday; Favourite Trilogies/ Series

#SixForSunday is a cheerful little prompt created by Steph, to view upcoming themes, join in, or see posts from the master of S4S click here.

6. The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins

I like to forget about Twilight, Divergent, The Maze Runner and probably a few other YA series I devoured around that time but I can never deny my love for The Hunger Games. I don’t recall how I first found them, though I know it was long before the films-which I of course had to watch on each release date!

5. Bridget Jones Diaries – Helen Fielding

This series is a guilty pleasure of mine. The hilarious and continuous disaster that is Bridget Jones’ life always manages to cheer me up and make me feel better about whatever difficulties I’m currently facing.

4. Rizzoli & Isles – Tess Gerritsen

To be honest I haven’t kept up to date with Rizzoli & Isles recently, I think I may be two books behind at this point. I started collecting these about 10 years ago and loved the two female MCs– a homicide detective and chief medical examiner. There was also a televised series which is great fun to watch though not at all accurate.

3. The Bone Season – Samantha Shannon

I came quite late to this series, I adored the world building and character development from book one and immediately set about purchasing the sequels and novellas. I read in an interview somewhere that Shannon intends it to be a 7 book series and I cannot WAIT to read the next installment.

2. The Dark Tower – Stephen King

Engorgio

I was so invested in this series that I distinctly remember going to my boring supermarket job as a teenager and catching myself wondering what the characters were up to before remembering- DUH they’re fictional! I remain furious at the disgraceful attempt at a cinematic ‘Dark Tower’ adaptation though, I can’t begin to tell you how wrong that was.

1. Harry Potter – JK Rowling

Well OBVIOUSLY this will always have the number one spot in my favourite series line-up. I’ll be very surprised if I don’t find The Chosen One sitting at the top of some other SixForSunday posts this week too!

I’m going to add a cheeky little shout out here before we wrap up; UNFINISHED TRILOGIES that I am positive will alter this weeks #SixForSunday choices..

The Legendary Series – Stephanie Garber

The Skinbooks Trilogy – Alice Broadway

The Extinction Trials – Susan Wilson

Big thanks to Steph as always, see you all next week.

  1. The Hunger Games series was one of the first that I picked up so I definitely am sentimental when it comes to that. I’ve only read the first two books of The Bone Season series but I’ve loved it! I’m not sure if I want to read the third just yet, because I prefer binge reading series as I tend to forget what happens sometimes haha. Definitely excited for those books though!
