Indie Block Party #6-Top Five Books

27 Aug

Indie-block-party-1024x717 Today we were to talk about our top five favorite books. Okay, so my list has more than five on it. I couldn’t pick just one book by any particular author.

1. Sookie Stackhouse Series-I love this series by Charlaine Harris. The first story I read was a short story in an anthology and loved the character. Reading the story led me to reading the series. I love True Blood as well. I have the first 3 seasons on dvd.

2. The Dark Hunter Series-Sherrilyn Kenyon.  I came across this series while looking at new books at the library. A copy of the fourth book was on the shelf and I picked it up and read the blurb. It immediately caught my attention. I’ve been reading the series ever since.

3. Anita Blake Series-Laurell K. Hamilton. I absolutely love this series. It became one of my favorites after reading the third book in the series. As with other series I have read I went back and got caught up.

4. Harry Potter Series-J.K. Rowling. I read the first book of the series after seeing the movie. I wasn’t going to read any of them at first but after reading the first one I was hooked on the series. I have all the movies and will soon finish up adding the books to my book collection. 

5. The Mortal Instruments Series-Cassandra Clare. I started reading this series because the movie was getting ready to come out and the trailer for it caught my attention. I picked up a copy and read it. I have spent most of the summer reading the series and the other series The Infernal Devices. 

6. The Dresden FilesJim Butcher. I was turned onto the Dresden Files books by a friend of mine who is a fan. She lent a copy of his earlier books in the series to read. I was hooked. I love the character Harry Dresden. I’m waiting patiently for the next book to come out. 

7. Mercy Thompson Series-Patricia Briggs. I first came across her books when I picked up a copy of Iron Kissed at the library a few years ago. I read it and loved it. I spent the next few weeks after finishing it catching up on the rest of the series. 

I could’ve added a lot more authors to the list. I have a lot of faves. Can’t wait to see who some of your faves are.

Thanks again to Fel and Dawna for hosting. The complete list of participants can be found here.

    I’m finding it quite hilarious that most of the “top 5’s” I’ve read so far have had more than 5. 🙂
    I’ve only watched the Dresden files TV show, but I’m going to have to get into those books.

      I agree with you on that. Everyone is having a hard time trying to decide what to put on the list. I know I did. If I hadn’t of stopped where I was mine would’ve probably been my top 50 or 100 list. 🙂

      The books are good. You won’t be disappointed. They are quite entertaining to read. 🙂

    Fun picks! I’ve been pacing myself on Dresden. I read the first two torrentially and then realized I should go on with the rest of my life. The third one is hanging around and mocking me though. But will you let me put you down? No, Not even to sleep? No… well then I’m not going to read you yet.

      Thanks. I know what you mean about Dresden. I had to start pacing myself on them as well. It is very easy to get caught up in Harry Dresden’s world and not want to put the book down. 🙂

    I’ve seen the TV show in the Netflix shows I’d like category, but haven’t watched it. Might have to try the books and then watch the show…
