Hello, fellow BookFans! I have to apologize, first of all, for being absent these past few weeks. Being on a self imposed lock down did a number on me and I had a hard time feeling motivated enough to engage with all you lovely people. As it turns out, we've all had those days this past year. Fortunately, though the self imposed lock down remains, I am feeling more like myself again and thus am able to enjoy sharing this blog with you today. So, our Monday Instagram Story question required us to dig back in time and share our very first favorite book series. I have two favorite series that I was super excited to check out from my local library when I was young. The Babysitter's Club and Sweet Valley High Twins were my go-to series in my younger years. I loved following the characters' many adventures and comparing notes on what I would do in their situations. That's part of the reason I love books that are part of a series. The ability to really get to know the characters and interact with them, in my own mind, is such a thrill. What's even more wonderful is that many of you have a first series favorite as well. Instagrammer soholl74 said that her first series favorite were the Nancy Drew Mysteries books. Young Adult Authors CL Walters and Brandann R. Hill loved Sweet Valley High and The Babysitter's Club books respectively. Instagrammer pusheencutiepie_05 admits that her favorite first series is The Selection series. So many of you shared your favorites that I can only fit a few on this post but I do hope that you take a moment to share more in the comments here. It's a great way to introduce a new series into our already overflowing to-be-read lists, but who doesn't want more reading material? I couldn't say. Anyway, I do hope to hear from you. What is you favorite first series? Be sure to let us know and always remember to be a fan like a real BookFan!
