Follow Friday


Q. Do you have a favorite series that you read over and over again? Tell us a bit about it and why you keep on revisiting it?



Yes, I do. The Dragonlance Series by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. Now, I am not one for high fantasy novels, they are usually not my thing, but when my sister introduced me to this particular series, with the first book Dragons of Autumn Twilight, I fell head over heels in love. There is just something about this series that really got to me. I think, mainly is that the characters are well-developed. They are interesting, so we pay attention to them more than to the world-building or fantastical creatures. My favorites are the first 6 books. After that, the main characters "retire" and we have a bunch of new ones, which for me are not that great. So I stick to the first 6 books and read them when I need to step completely out of my world and into another with characters who are as real as the people around me.

Thanks for stopping by and following! I haven't read any Dragonlance yet, but it's been on my wishlist for a while for sure. I was introduced to the Forgotten Realms not too long ago and I fell in love. :)
