OHN welcomes Tracy Trips as a new contributor who shall cover all things literary as she is a big book nerd.
I got issues. YEAH I KNOW we all knew that. One of my favorite issues is my addiction to books. To be more specific, book series. I cannot tell you the geek orgasms that fill my body when someone tells me that they read a book or started a series I suggested and LOVED it. My soul twinkles. My heel fissures sparkle. I can talk all day long about a series that I love. I will come to your house from across the country to beat you senseless if you try to tell me you don’t love Eve Dallas and Peabody from J.D. Robb’s ‘In Death’ series.
I used to read only murder/espionage books with some smut thrown in every once in a while. Then I found The Hunger Games. I fell in love with dystopian worlds. I discovered Orson Scott Card and Ender’s Game which opened me up to science fiction. I would pass all OVER anything that said ZOMBIE in the title until I started ‘The Strain’. I’d mention Girl with a Dragon Tattoo but I don’t wanna talk about Lizbeth and get Slaus all worked up. ( Slaus edit – runs in and starts humping on Tracy for mentioning my woman) Like Lawyers? Check out David Rosenfelt’s ‘Andy Carpenter’ series. Wanna ride along with some covert agents saving the world from evildoers and terrorists? Vince Flynn’s ‘Mitch Rapp’ series is awesome.
What about you? What’s your favorite series? Which ones will you pick up without even reading the back? Which ones make you all excited to talk about with other people? Which ones are you holding off on reading? Which ones do your kids like? Which ones did you assume that other readers were smoking crack because the books were absolutely ridiculous? ::cough::Twilight::cough:: Or hell…just talk about some books! Let’s all find some new ones to read….or give me a geekasm and tell me how brilliant my suggestion was.
