My Answer

Oh, I will have to say it's The Twilight Saga!  I have not only read all four books, but am now on my third reading of them!  Actually, I've read the first book four times already -- the first three times in English, and the fourth time in Spanish.

I just can't get enough of these books!  Sigh....

There's actually a fifth book, titled The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, but I'm not at all interested in that one.  This book focuses on a minor character introduced in Eclipse, the third book of the Saga.  The story is told from her perspective, and it's not a very happy one...

Here's another series I love!  I haven't quite finished it, though...  I ran into a traumatic event in the sixth book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.  I had read half the book, but was unable to continue.  However, I am mentioning this series here because, had it not been for J.K. Rowling's very unexpected (and, I think, totally unnecessary) plot twist, I would definitely have finished the series, because I love, love, love it!  Thanks for throwing a monkey wrench in the works, J.K.!  Why did you have to do that?!

I have the hardcovers of these books, but, since I love them so much, I might very well buy the paperbacks, too.  I've also been thinking of buying the British hardcover edition.  After all, that's what I've done with The Twilight Saga; I have several editions of the series!

  4. Glad I'm not the only one who has multiple copies of the Harry Potter books. I've got UK child and adult covers, special edition hard covers and half a set of US covers. Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Hi, Tasha!

      Well, actually, I have multiple copies of The Twilight Saga, and want to do the same with the Harry Potter series. I also have several editions of The Lord of the Rings.

      I'm sure there are more people with several editions of favorite books, although we might be a minority. Who knows? Some bookworms are also pretty obsessive bibliophiles!

      Hope you have a great weekend, too! Thanks for the visit and the comment!! :)

    1. Hey, Jen!

      I know that's a very sad book not only because of the title, which makes it very obvious, but also because Bree appears very briefly in "Eclipse", disappearing immediately.

      The Harry Potter series is GREAT! It's not that the plot twist entirely ruins the series. I had a very personal reaction to it. Maybe it wouldn't affect you as much. Who knows? Try it and see!

      Thank you so much for visiting and commenting back!! :)

  8. What is the "plot hump" that you didn't like that you weren't expecting?

    1. Hi, Heather!

      Well, it would be a major spoiler if I told you. For me, it was a very tragic event. I cried and cried for a good ten minutes, and couldn't go on with the book even after I had calmed down. I haven't been back since. I will try to finish the book, though, and go on to book 7. I can at least try.

      Thanks for commenting back, and following with bloglovin!! I'm going to follow you right back!! :)

    2. Curses to people who haven't read Harry Potter yet! LOL... I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about though.
      My problems with the series actually came in the last book... that's where a lot of stuff felt sort of crammed in to me. Honestly... my advice would be "If you think you just can't get through the last two books... just read the last chapter of the last book" it's a sort of wrap up, and it's cute. :)

    3. Oh, geez! How did that old curse go again? I'm sure that sleazy excuse for a human being, Snape, would know! (Although I think he ends up having been a good guy all along....go figure THAT one!)

      I'm going to try to go back and finish that book, and go on to book 7. I'm a perfectionist, so I don't want to leave the series unfinished. I will definitely try.

      Thanks for commenting again!! :)

  9. I only read Twilight...none of the other books, and I have never read a Harry Potter book. OUCH...someone threw something at me. :)

    I am late with my visit, but better late than never, right? :)

    1. Hey, Elizabeth!

      Oh, you should read the rest of the books!! The whole series is one big romantic story!! I know I'll be re-reading it more times in the future, too!!!

      As for Harry Potter, you need to read that series, as well. But be warned, something really sad happens in the middle of book 6, which is why I haven't quite finished the series.

      So someone threw something at you? Lol. Get these books read!

      Thanks for the visit and the comment! And yes, better late than never!! Happy Reading!! :)
