Since 2000 until 2007, Harry Potter has captivated my reading life, and the author really delivered in my opinion what all readers would want: Not wanting to let the book down, even if it's 12 midnight and there's school tomorrow.
And since 2007, I never tried picking up another series-based books, only single individual stories. And of all those books between 2007 and now, they only offered me month-length thrills, never lasted for years. (But I highly recommend the Warcraft series novels even to the non-gamers, actually the story of the game is highly complex and often misunderstood by the gamers themselves, I myself am not a fan of the game, but a fan of the story, I particularly liked "Lord of the Clans")
But now, I feel like I haven't been reading enough books recently. Craze is over the Twillight series recently, but like Harry Potter, it has a major opposition just as it has a major fan-base. For my taste, I think I still won't get the hang of Romance-based supernatural fiction.
And since I am the magical-lore and fantasy type, I have finally come to the decision that I start with The Chronicles of Narnia. I believe some of you had seen the 1st and even the 2nd movie. Believe me, I was awe struck by the 1st one, but I haven't got the chance to read the 2nd one. Nevertheless, i really liked the concept. So right now I am looking forward to our school's Bookstore display day, I might be able to get a good discount if the book is available.
For the ones still new to the series, it is a Chronicle of the fictional land of Narnia, which exist in an alternate dimension to our world. Through its birth and creation till its destruction, the many wonderful, cheerful, frightening and courageous stories are told in a way most fantasy-readers will definitely be familiar with.
Hopefully the series will keep me reading until the start 2011.
