Keeping on with the 30-Day Book Challenge, the prompt for Day 3 is “your favorite series.”
Well, I told you there would be a lot of Harry Potter throughout this challenge, and today is no exception. My favorite book series by far is the Harry Potter series, for innumerable reasons. The books are exciting, funny, thought-provoking, and educational. They have brought people together from all over the world, and have encouraged millions of kids to read. The series started a revolution in the publishing industry, and I’m not sure if something like it will ever come around again (but I’ll be excited if it does!).
However, if I had to choose a series other than Harry Potter, I would choose the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. This series is also for children (but adults would enjoy it, too!), and it follows the sons and daughters of mythological Greek gods in their present-day adventures. The books are clever, dynamic, and hilarious. While the series is complete, author Rick Riordan has started a spinoff on the series, including children of Roman gods and goddesses. I truly encourage readers of any age to pick up these books, as they have the heart of Harry Potter with an ingenious storyline.
