Thankful Thursday: Book series

Wow! It's been a LONG time since I posted!  I apologize for that.  It's been crazy and unfortunately I don't think it's going to get better for awhile, so my posting is probably going to be a bit sporadic, but I'll try to be better.  For those that are looking for the winner of the Hoppy Easter Giveaway Hop, I'll post that on Monday, so make sure to stop on back.  

But, in the meantime, I'm participating in the Oasis for YAs Thankful Thursday Meme.

Topic this week: What book series are you most thankful for and why?

When I saw this prompt, I was like, “Oh boy! How do I choose?!”  There wasn’t a way, so I used the ol’ stand-by…eenie, meenie, Minie, Mo. :D  Of course, that didn’t work either. LOL. So, I picked two.  Yes, I’m cheating. Kinda.  ; ) The first is posted at the Oasis blog.

The second one I’m grateful for is the Twilight series.  I know a lot of writer’s opinions on this series, but, honestly, it’s the reason I started writing seriously again.  I wanted to do what she did.  Not necessarily the movies, and the best-seller status(not that I WOULDN’T take all that. LOL.) but how she was able to create something new and fresh and make it her own. And not only do that, but making so many people--young and old alike—to fall in love with the story and the characters.  Almost everywhere you turned people were reading or re-reading this story.  I still don’t really know what it was about this story that made me want to keep reading, but there’s only been a few books since then that has inspired me that much. 

Almost immediately I started writing an awful book about fairies.  LOL. But Twilight gave me the courage to start writing again.  And for that, I’m grateful.
