Second Hand Saturday 1-19-13

 
 
Welcome to Second Hand Saturday!
In an attempt to clear our bookshelves, and pass on great used books to our stalkers followers, we have decided to hold weekly giveaways of some of the books on our bookshelves! Every Saturday, we will post the books available, and the following Saturday, we will announce the winner and our next challenge. The winner will get to choose a book from the list and we will ship it to that lucky person! Each week we will have a different challenge to complete.


This Week's Question:

It seems like it's the end for a lot of different series that I've been invested in these past few years.  I just finished The Seven Realms, which I keep talking about, and the Unearthly series, which was AWESOME.  So, my question is, which series that you have completely FINISHED, is your favorite?  Let's leave out Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games, to make it more interesting.  Mine is, of course, The Seven Realms.  Yeah, you should read it!  :D


Just comment below to be entered!



And this week's winner is...

  1. I love the Tiger's Curse Saga (although there is one more book coming out), but probably a series that I have finished would be the Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the Darkest Powers series, or the Forbidden Game series!

  2. Hmm...probably the Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the Matched trilogy, and the Paranormalcy trilogy! Really enjoyed those three series. :)

  3. Once I finish Shades of Earth, I think that trilogy will claim this spot- such a wonderful series :)

    I also love Vampire Academy.

  4. Oh, I like so many series! I think my favorite one ever is Vampire Academy, but I also like Uglies Scott Westerfeld's Uglies and Bernard Cornwell's Grail Quest and Warlord Chronicles.

  5. Not Harry Potter huh? Hmm.... I'd say the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. I love Percy Jackson. :)

  6. If I can't choose The Hunger Games, then I'll go with the Uglies series by Scott Westerfield.

    It takes me forever to finish a series because I like knowing that there are still books to read in the future, so when I love a series, I tend to slow down rather than speed up. =) But I started Susan Cooper's Dark Is Rising sequence back in high school, and that gave me plenty of time to read all five books. So that's my answer! =)

  8. I just finished reading the Hush, Hush series and love it. So sad to see it end. :) I would so recommend this series to everyone. ;)

  9. Excluding the series' mentioned above, I would have to say the series that I fell madly in love with and completely finished has to be the Shifters series by Rachel Vincent. They were my introduction to Rachel Vincent and to were-cat shifters and I haven't been the same since. This is a series that I would re-read in an instant with no second thoughts. T'was amazing!

  10. The series Georgina Kincaid by Richelle Mead about a succubus. Very funny!

    ReplyDelete
  11. The Vampire Diaries series *______*. Love Damon!! Just because I cant choose Twilight first.

  12. I just finished The Casters Chronicles by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl last year. My heart broke and swelled and broke again.. It's definitely one that I envision myself rereading in the future! It's got romance, magic and unexpected-ness! <3

  13. Hmmmmmm... I would love to say the Shade series by Jeri Smith-Ready, but she's making two novellas that tie in woth it, so it's not TOTALLY done... I guess I'll just have to go with Percy Jackson in that case. Love Greek Mythology, and Riordan did such a great job modernizing it. The characters were awesome, the action suspenseful, and overall it was just a great read!

  14. I have to admit I haven't fiished many series but One of the few I have finished was Vampire Academy and I loved it! There's a lot of vampire fiction out there but VA is definitely worth reading.

  15. Probably The Dark Divine Trilogy by, Bree Despain, The Wings Series by, Aprilynne Pike, or The Faerie Path by, Frewin Jones. I also have to add the Clique series by, Lisi Harrison it was my favorite series growing up it sums up my middle school years.

  16. I love the Obernewtyn series, though with 8 (or maybe more) books that aren't particularly easy to find in bookstores here, I haven't yet finished it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh geez, this is crazy hard for me...
    I'll exculde some of the classics... Maybe The Homelanders series by Andrew Klavan. Or Ted Dekker's Circle series

  18. I am in the middle of a lot of different series right now that I am going to be very sad to see end. However, out of the ones that have concluded, I suppose I would have to say Bree Dispain's 'The Dark Divine' trilogy, as someone else mentioned. With so many great ones to choose from lately, it will soon be even more difficult to decide on a favorite!

  19. I found a series that I just loved! The first one is One Tuesday Morning and the second one is Beyond Tuesday Morning by Karen Kingsbury. They are about 9/11, and were so good!

  22. I can't say I've actually finished a ton of series, because most I have like one book left to read but of the ones I have finished I'd have to say The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice. I read them all in high school.

  25. Gee, if you are going to exclude Harry Potter, Hunger Games and the Twilight series I guess that leaves "The Happy Hollister" series as my favs.

  31. I've read all the books in Night World series that have been published. I really liked them, and they look so familiar to someone who has read Twilight:) I think SM must have been inspired by these books. I've also read the Uglies series, except Shay's Story graphic novel. My favorite book is Extras.
