There are so many TV programs I love, and even more that are on my to-watch list, however I don’t actually have Netflix myself. Still I figured you don’t need to have Netflix to take part in this tag! I was tagged by Reg at She Latitude. Thanks so much for the tag Reg, I had a lot of fun answering these questions and I hope you enjoyed reading them as much. Everyone should definitely check out Reg’s original post and her blog as well while you’re there. Reg is such an amazing person, and she writes some brilliant reviews, among other posts.

I didn’t do all of these prompts myself, there’s no set rule saying you have to do all of them, instead I picked the ones from the TV shows I’d actually seen.
Best cast of characters/friendships
The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater
The friendship between Blue and the Raven Boys was one of my favourite parts of this series. If you took all the characters at face value you wouldn’t think they would work well as friends, all of them are a little screwed up in very different ways, but somehow they do. All of them prove their loyalty and love for one another more than once throughout this series.
Long series you loved
The Chronicles of Ixia series by Maria V. Snyder
With three separate series and various novellas The Chronicles of Ixia series has nine full length novels and another five novellas telling Yelena’s, Valek’s, and Opal’s stories. I picked up this series after the first three books were released and immediately fell in love, the Study series are actually three of my most re-read books, and ever since then I’ve loved how the story has developed and how much we’ve seen of the character’s lives and adventures.
How I Met Your Mother:
Penryn and the End of Days series by Susan Ee
There are a few series I could have picked for this prompt – The Death Cure ad Allegiant anyone – but the ending to the Penryn and the End of Days trilogy is one that just really disappointed me. It was still a good book but not anywhere near what I hoped it would be. Originally this series was supposed to be five books instead of three, and the last one felt like three books of information, plot and development crammed into one.
In the end I just couldn’t pick only one series.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I love fairytale retellings and the Lunar Chronicles is one of the best series I’ve read from that genre. Each book seemed to get better and better and when we finally got to Winter, at over 800 pages, it was full of action and romance, and overall it was just a brilliant ending. If you’re a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, or fairytale retellings I’d highly recommend this series.
Shades of Magic series by V.E. Schwab
Ever since I read the first book of this series and ever since I started this blog I feel like I have recommended the Shades of Magic trilogy to everyone I’ve spoken to on WordPress. The ending to A Gathering of Shadows was a huge cliffhanger and now I am desperate to get my hands on A Conjuring of Light. It’s released in February and that still feels like too long to wait.
Series that should have ended earlier
The Morganville Vampires series by Rachel Caine
When I first started this series I was addicted; the stories were fast paced, the characters intriguing, and each book ended on a cliffhanger guaranteed to make you immediately pick up the next one. However it just never ended. There was always another threat around the corner and after a while it just got too much. There are fifteen books in this series, not counting the novellas, but I stopped reading around book seven.
Parks and Recreation:
Made you laugh out loud
Soul Eaters series by Eliza Crewe
I wouldn’t have really thought this would be a series that made me laugh out loud, on a train in the middle of rush hour no less, but it really did. Meda, the main character, was hilarious; sharp-tongued, sarcastic, and unapologetic about what she needs to do to survive she always has a comeback on the tip of her tongue.
Best family or parents
Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen
Although Jamie and Cora aren’t her real parents, instead her sister and brother-in-law, they instantly treat Ruby like a treasured member of the family despite the fact that she’s been estranged from her sister for years. They open their home and hearts to her, believe in her even when she doesn’t believe in herself. Both Jamie and Cora are the family members everyone deserves to have in their lives.
