Today’s post is going to be a quick chat about a very popular series I’ve never actually read.
I can almost hear the shock through the screen…hang on, a book blogger who hasn’t read one of the most popular fantasy series ever? Yes, guys, yes.
I’ve just never got round to it. As a kid I read Jacqueline Wilson and Jacqueline Wilson alone, with the exception of a few random library books…but I was never tempted towards Harry Potter.
I think this was purely due to the fact I was never interested in fantasy. I always went towards contemporary purely because that’s what I was used to, and frankly I was scared to branch out to different to different genres.
The second reason is because I’ve only ever read 3 series and they’re all trilogies…for a long time I’ve been very daunted to start a series longer than that.
But now, after reading a variety of genres in YA and adult novels, I’m ready. I’ve read 4 of the 15 part Morganville series and found out that if you love the characters enough, having more books is the best thing rather than the worst.
And fantasy isn’t so bad, after all.
Have you been daunted by a series like I am with Harry Potter?
I’ll hopefully finally be starting this series in June or July and reviewing them ASAP!
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
