Gina Review: Top Five Series to Read

Today I bring you Gina's Christmas gift to me: a guest blog post on her 5 most favorite series of books to read. Interestingly enough, Harry Potter isn't on there ...


Top Five Series to Read  by Gina Salerni

1.   Everlost Series: Neal Shusterman- Two kids are killed in a car crash and are transported to Everlost, a world of the dead. Only kids are here and they are just like any living people.  Along their journey they will meet monsters, slip inside of the living, and become the most important people in all of Everlost.

2.   Airborn Series: Kenneth Oppel- Matt works on an airship and one day, he meets a passenger on his ship, her name is Kate. Kate and Matt are so different in background but love the sky. So when they both share the knowledge of an amazing creature in the sky, they’ll do anything to find it.

3.   Worst Case Scenario- Are you going hiking in the woods? Climbing Mt. Everest? Need help boosting a bad grade? Then check out the Worst Case Scenario Series. They give you step by step instructions (with a dash of humor) to prepare and carry out these things. They also include some multiple choice questions to see if you know about some random facts!

4.   Septimus Heap: Angie Sage- Septimus Heap is in the young army until he realizes he has magical powers-which aren’t unusual around there. Septimus will rise to the third most important person in the land. Although, being the Apprentice of the Extra-Ordinary Wizard isn’t all fun and games.  Septimus will have to protect the princess, face evil wizards, and travel in time.

5.    Vordak the Incomprehensible: Vordak the Incomprehensible- Read these books to find out how to rule the world and raise a terrifying army. Vordak will give you step-by-step directions to rule the world, including picking a name, costumes, and constructing extremely slow-acting yet diabolically clever death traps.
