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?
I'm not generally big on series--something about the same characters and the same plot book after book tends to annoy me, especially in YA fiction. But I do love the Twelve Houses series, by Sharon Shinn. It's a fantasy series that follows a band of friends, some of whom are mystics and some of whom are king's soldiers, as they fight to keep the royal family from being overthrown and to save the kingdom. That's a crappy summary, I know. I promise the books themselves are much more interesting than that.
I love the Twelve Houses books because they all follow the same group of friends, but each book focuses on a different character. So I love that I don't get tired of the characters, because I get to spend time with a different one each time. Also those books all have such great romances going on. I'm the type who always needs at least a vaguely romantic story line somewhere in the plot, and the Twelve Houses books have adventure and fighting and magic PLUS swoony romances.
Other series I like:
-The Sevenwaters series, by Juliet Marillier
-Lady Julia Grey series, by Deanna Raybourn
-Enchanted Forest Chronicles, by Patricia C. Wrede
-The Bridgerton series, by Julia Quinn
