This week I finished up that 5 book fantasy series from the 90s. I did enjoy it. He has wonderful characters and a great many interesting things happening to them at regular intervals. When other genres you get one wrap up chapter. But with Quest based fantasy it appears that 5 or 6 is perfectly acceptable. But since you’ve been with these characters for so long the reader can hang around a little bit longer.
I started to begin another series but I made the mistake of pausing in the church Library where I go to MOPS. I attended school at this church and ever since then I have been re-reading this series of extremely fluffy romances. About once a year I feel the need to read something that won’t make me think too hard, has true love and babies, and is just good hearted fluff. Then I go to this little church library and check out the same 4 books. I saw them again. I couldn’t resist. I checked out my 2 favorite. As I re-re-re-read them I realized once again that they really aren’t written well. But I simply love them. They are familiar. They are predictable. The heroines get into all sorts of trouble. The heroes are tall and handsome and brooding. And 3 out of the 4 end with the birth of babies. Even though the writing could be improved…a good deal…I absolutely adore them. Who knows why? Anyway that is what I’m reading now. What about you. Do you have any badly written favorites that you just can’t live without?
