What is your Favorite Book/Book Series?

Postby Follower of Christ » Thu Jun 18, 2009 7:05 pm

My favorite book right now is probably Hinds' Feet on High Places or Mission to the Headhunters. As far as book series, I would have to say The Country Road Chronicles.

I enjoyed the Paradise series by Ted Dekker, The Circle Trilogy (Also by Ted Dekker--he's so amazing, that he can write a trilogy with FOUR books in it! :D ) and the Sons of Eternity one by Francine Rivers.

My favorite series... Probably the Dragons in our Midst/Oracles of Fire by Bryan Davis. They were trying to think up a name for all eight books...

Single book... Oh, snap. Maybe... This Present Darkness, by Frank E. Peretti. I haven't read it in a while, but I love it. I love it thiiiis much! *stretches out arms*

Nice ref.^^ :D

I like Animorphs best. :yes: It seems slightly immature, and at the beginning of the series is some, but as you go on there are complex moral questions and realistic scenarios. :yes:

Maximum Ride! \:D/ I'm not going to bother listing all the reasons why I like it right now; I'll probably end up writing a review on it for the reading contest anyways. :-

EDIT: Wooow... you know you're too tired if you post something twice. :anxious:

I have so many favorite books I couldn't even begin to start! But I'd have to say my favorite single book is "Gone With The Wind" and "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz".

I like the Enola Holmes series by Nancy Springer, and J.D. Robb's In Death series if I want a good mystery/romance. I've also recently gotten into Bodie and Brock Thoene's A.D. Chronicles series.

As for solo books, nothing can top Peter S. Beagle's The Last Unicorn. Nothing.

I like the Enola Holmes series too! \:D/ Artemis Fowl is also another favorite book series, as are the Legacy of the Force and (so far) the Fate of the Jedi book series. As for an individual book, I'm afraid I can't choose just one.

If I may dare to reiterate my numerous previous statements, and I prefer the Hank the Cowdog series, which just released book 54.
