My all-time favorite book series
This series hooked me in a way that no book ever has. It is so detailed and elaborate, and it just sucks you into this Scottish world that you want to be a part of. I wanted to travel back in time, and live this history. After reading this, I was pretty much obsessed with all things Scottish for the longest time. I have tried to reread the series, and I want to so bad, but it’s a huge undertaking since each book hovers around 1000 pages. I recommend this book to everyone, and I haven’t had any one not like it yet.
One of the best YA books that I have read this school year has been Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson. I picked this book up to read as an option for my lit circles groups that are mainly boys who don’t like to read. Well, I was so surprised. I really got into this book and could not put it down. I now see why my brother is always talking about the quality of writing that Brandon Sanderson produces. I hope to read his other books soon.
The All Souls Trilogy is a series that combines all of my favorite genres together. A little bit of magic plus a little bit of history plus a little romance equals a fantastic story. I loved how this story wove together real history with a completely imaginative tale of witches, vampires, and daemons. A must read!!
