"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

It was really hard to think of my Top 5 series, mostly because I don't read that many series books.  But I did find 5, even if it was hard! Some I just discovered this year, and some are oldies but I love them still!

Of course I've got to start with Harry Potter.  I re-read all the books in the month leading up to the premiere of Deathly Hallows Part 1.  I must re-read at least one of the books every month, and they are still as great as the first time!

 This series, The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor, I just found this year.  For one of my edu. classes we had to find a contemporary companion to a classic.  My classic was Alice in Wonderland, and I found these books simply through Google.  Definitely check them out; they are an amazing re-imagining, very hip and very exciting!  (Check out the soundtrack as well!)

The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare is so fudgin' good, I'm aching to read the next book, City of Fallen Angels.  Clare's writing is phenomenal, it sucks you in and you can't let go.  For me this series is on the same par as Harry Potter, and I'm so glad that there is more coming!

This was another discovery for me, early 2010.  I read Shiver in February, and loved it!  Luckily, I didn't have to wait very long before Linger came out.  Forever rounds out the Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater, coming out in July 2011.  This is such an interesting canon for werewolves!  I love the origin story of Sam and Grace's relationship.  Go read them!

 Lastly, The Hunger Games series blew me out of the water.  Katniss is one of my favorite heroines in literary history.  Strong, courageous, but still with fear; she tries to hide her emotions but you can see her every decision is ultimately guided by them.  Add Peeta to the mix, and you have me bouncing with anticipation.  If you haven't read this amazing series by Suzanne Collins yet, get out from under your rock and buy them!

Well those are my Sunday Top 5!  Be sure to check out everyone else's at Larissa's blog, and drop me a comment below.

As always, Don't Forget to be Awesome!
