Series Book Discussion

Yesterday, five people showed up for our teen series book discussion.  The weather was dismal, so thanks to them for coming over!  We talked about all kinds of issues related to series books, and everyone had a lot of opinions.  One thing that kept coming up was disappointment with later volumes after really liking the beginning of a series.  The was true for trilogies (The Hunger Games) as well as longer series (Harry Potter).  But we all recommended some favorite series books, and several people checked out some new things to try.  Also, Owen was really glad to get his hands on the new Alex Rider book (Scorpia Rising) that just came out this week!

Looking for something new to read?  Here are some of our favorite series books:
  • House of Night by P. C. Cast and Kristin Cast (recommended by Edythe)
  • The Luxe by Anna Godbersen (recommended by Teferi and Gretchen)
  • Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz (recommended by Owen)
  • Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead (recommended by Edythe)
  • Bloody Jack by L. A. Meyer (recommended by Judy and Gretchen)
  • Mortal Instruments by Philip Pullman (recommended by Gretchen)
  • Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan (recommended by Owen)
