1. Harry Potter by: J.K. Rowling
This series is first because it is simply magnificent! J.K. Rowling manages to create a story that transcends any age group. This series will always be my favorite and I will never be ashamed to say that I have read this series!
Like Stephen King said:
"Harry Potter is all about confronting fears, finding inner strength, and doing what is right in the face of adversity." (the rest of the quote is bashing twilight and not really relevant)
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read, open to a random page, and s.hare two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
"Fantastic," Simon says.
-pg. 11 "City of Fallen Angels" by Cassandra Clare
I kind of cheated and did more than two sentence but I'm on page 203 and this is by far my favorite quote so far and I couldn't bear the thought of not putting all of it.
