Book Blogger Hop - 6/7 - 6/13



 QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

 What is your favorite trilogy (series)?

MY ANSWER:

Well....as I commented last week, I normally do not read series, and I don't believe I have ever read a trilogy.

I know....BORING ANSWER!!!  :)

Looking forward to everyone's answers.  Perhaps I will find I may enjoy trilogies. :)

  2. I am not a big trilogy reader either, but if I had to pick, I would say The Hunger Games.

  4. I agree with Alex. I loved the Hunger Games Series. It is one of my all time favorites. (It's rainy here today too.)

  5. Oh I liked Hunger Games too. But I think I'm HOPING that Hilary Mantel's Cromwell books will be my favourite trilogy when she produces the third book....

  6. I can't think of any trilogies I've read off the top of my head.

  7. I read more duets and singles, or series with more than three books in them. You're not alone.

  8. I'm amazed you can avoid them! Sometimes it seems it's hard to find single titles anymore. Even when I think I'm reading a standalone title, I get to the end and it's to-be-continued.

  9. I answered "The Hunger Games" because I forgot that Lord of the Rings was a trilogy. I tend not to read very many series books, either, but every now and then I'll get caught up in a storyline. :)

  11. Well no trilogies! I seem to read a number of them. The problem though is to remember the books that go before. I was consoled though by one of my 12 year old students who confessed she would need to reread a previous book in a trilogy we are reading before she read the last one. As she is an A student, I thought if she has to do that then it is okay for my older brain to need to do the same!

  12. Happy Friday, Elizabeth!

    You've got to try at least ONE trilogy! After all, you've read The Kent Family Chronicles. You might as well read a trilogy. However, I don't know if you'd like fantasy, or any paranormal stuff. I'd recommend The Lord of the Rings, which is my favorite fantasy trilogy. I've just discovered The Skinjacker Trilogy, The Last Survivors Trilogy, and The Graveyard Queen Trilogy, the blog "Vonnie's Reading Corner". These are all paranormal books, but you might just like them.

    Have a GREAT weekend! Happy Reading!! :)

  13. Hi Maria..thanks for stopping by.

    I don't like paranormal, but thanks for the recommendations.

  14. You never read a trilogy? Hmmm...these are usually better than series books because the writing doesn't suffer as much with trilogies (my personal opinion of course).

  15. Is it because your just not into series? Prefer standalones?

  16. I have only read very few trilogies in my life but enjoyed them quite a bit. There is The Plantation Trilogy by Gwen Bristow, The House of the Spirits, Daughter of Fortune, and Portrait in Sepia by Isabel Allende and Louisiana by Maurice Denuzière. I have also read the first two of Nancy E. Turner's story about her grandmother: These is my words and Sarah's Quilt. Oh, and then the Hunsenmeier Trilogy from Rita Mae Brown and the first two of Pearl S. Buck's Good Earth Trilogy The Good Earth and Sons from Pearl S. Buck (still looking for the third one).

    And now I am eagerly awaiting Amitav Ghosh's third book in his Ibis trilogy after I thoroughly enjoyed Sea of Poppies and River of Smoke.

    I think those should give you some ideas. ;-)

  17. Thats hard... hmmm... right off the bat I would have said :Hatty Potter" but that is more than a trilogy.


    Stop by today if you have time - 4 year blogiversary party is going on and there is a big giveaway!

  18. If you would like to see the joys of a trilogy in a stand alone book, read The 3 Fates by Nora Roberts. It is one book, done in 3 sections.

  19. I guess you're going to discover quite a few on this hop then :)

  20. Try Veronica Roth Divergent, Lauren Oliver Delirium, Cassandra Clare's Infernal Devices or Mortal Instruments series, or Liz Norris has a a two book series starting with Unraveling that is fast and fun. Happy Book Blogger day!
