       30 Day Book Challenge is by The Chronicles of Radiya. Each day I’m asked something about a book and I have to answer. It sounded like a lot of fun and it gives me chance to tell you guys a little but more about myself.

Day 2: Your Favorite Series

                  The Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout and the Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness 

 

 

 

           How can you choose just ONE? It’s not humanly possible. I think I have to go with two series. The first one is definitely the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. See growing up my dad didn’t watch normal TV shows . Twin Peaks was the start of it. The X-Files though, now that show I remember watching. It got me obsessed with all things paranormal. When I read about the Lux books and found out it was about aliens? I fangirled like I never fangirled before. There aren’t many alien books out there, so when I do find one, I have to read it. Lux isn’t over yet. Origin (the 4th book) comes out this month. Origin should come out earlier after the torturous cliffhanger that was the 3rd book.  Now my second favorite series actually emotionally drained me, as it did to everyone who read them: The Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness. I never wanted to read these books. The way Patrick Ness wrote it always annoyed me. I had nothing to read one day and I decided to pick The Knife of Never Letting Go up… and I am so happy I did. These books are honestly amazing. Each title holds such an important role to the book that it belongs to. There’s action, betrayal, mind-blowing plots and so much more. Noise is one of the best points in this book. Men are able to hear everyone else’s thoughts, hence Noise. This is what Patrick Ness showed noise as: 

 

 

It’s amazing. Absolutely amazing. Patrick Ness is a brilliant man. The quotes in these books? Don’t even get me started. Here are two of my favorites: 

“Here’s what I think,” I say and my voice is stronger and thoughts are coming, thoughts that trickle into my noise like whispers of truth. “I think maybe everybody falls,” I say. “I think maybe we all do. And I don’t think that’s the asking.” 
I pull on her arms gently to make sure she’s listening.
“I think the asking is whether we get back up again.” 
― Patrick Ness, The Knife of Never Letting Go

“Men lie, and they lie to themselves worst of all.” 
― Patrick Ness, The Knife of Never Letting Go

     So those are my favorite. Have you read any of them? If not, do it.
