Series. That’s right, today we are talking about book series.
I was lucky enough to get to read Isla and the Happily Ever After last week about a month before it came out. To say I was dying for this final companion in this series is a huge understatement. But with that said when I was done the series was over and there was one burning question that I was asked: Which one is your favorite of the series?
That was my reaction. I mean how is one supposed to choose? Would you pick a favorite kid? A favorite cat? It’s impossible. Sure you can love one maybe a slight more than another, but pick one that is hands above the rest? I don’t think it can be done. Especially when talking about Anna and the French Kiss, Lola and the Boy Next Door and Isla and the Happily Ever After. I mean…
So it may be diplomatic of me but I gave an answer that is really a non-answer. My reply was that I love them all for their own reasons as they all mean something different to me. And it is true. Each of those three books do mean something very different and are very special in their own way. It isn’t really possible for me to say one is better than the other, to rank them because they are 3 different books with 3 different plots and 3 different sets of characters.
But it did get me thinking about other series like Divergent or Delirium or Throne of Glass. Do people have a favorite that you can easily say tops the rest? Is this a thing that I’m missing out on? Is it really a cop-out with me saying I can’t choose? Tell me ABCers, can you readily say a book in a series is your favorite or are you a diplomat like me?
