My Musings for the Week...
Random Weekly Question from March 14th: Approximately how many books do you usually read per week? Per month?
There's no definite answer I can give to this question. I read at random, which means sometimes I read more than two books a week, even three. At other times, I don't read at all. It really just depends.
Lately, I’m having fun with lists. It seems like a great way to revisit some series and talk about books I’ve already read (the ones I don't have any current plans to reread). So, for today, I’d thought I’d do another one. This time, I’m listing five series or trilogies that have a magical or supernatural flare to them...
- Kat, Incorrigible series by Stephanie Burgis: This is a middle grade series, but I definitely like Burgis’ writing style, and how she incorporated the magic into the story.
- Hex Hall Trilogy by Rachel Hawkins: I liked Hawkins’ spin on magic in the books. I had a few problems with the series, but overall it was pretty great.
- The Cambion Chronicles by Jamie Reed: I liked these books because of the characters and the story. The supernatural elements worked really well, and I liked the way they were introduced into the plot.
- The Archived series by Victoria Schwab: There were a lot of great elements combined with an interesting concept, good writing, and intricate storytelling.
- The Night Has Teeth by Kat Kruger: This one was a more recent read, but the supernatural elements were definitely cool. I liked the way Kruger incorporated werewolves into the story, and showed how these sudden changes affected the character’s life.
