Get hooked on a great book se­ries

Cecil Whig - - ACCENT - By PAM WISE­MAN

Spe­cial to the Whig

With the hol­i­day sea­son in full swing, take a break from all the fes­tiv­i­ties and get hooked on a new book se­ries with these rec­om­men­da­tions from the Ce­cil County Public Li­brary.

Many of these books are avail­able as an e-book or eau­dio­book or tra­di­tional CD book – so if you are trav­el­ing this De­cem­ber and haven’t en­joyed any of these se­ries, check them out. Artemis Fowl (2009) By Eoin Colfer Some­how I was much too old to read the Harry Pot­ter se­ries when it came out in 1997. Thank good­ness I am get­ting younger! Once I read the Harry Pot­ter books, I loved them and was look­ing for another se­ries. Artemis Fowl is a 12-year old ge­nius who de­cides to re­store his fam­ily’s honor (and wealth) by kid­nap­ping a fairy. The ad­ven­tures con­tinue through eight books. Un­der the Never Sky

(2012) By Veronica Rossi If you liked the Di­ver­gent se­ries by Veronica Roth try the dystopian story “Un­der the Never Sky.” Aria, ex- pelled from her com­fort­ably shel­tered so­ci­ety into the Death Stop, meets Perry, a Dweller. The two teens need to work to­gether to tra­verse a ter­ri­fy­ing land­scape, even though their so­ci­eties have taught them to hate one another. This three-part se­ries has also been op­tioned for a movie.

Lacy Flint (2011) By Sharon Bolton One of my fa­vorite mys­tery se­ries makes my list of fa­vorites. Lacy Flint is a young de­tec­tive con­sta­ble in Lon­don. She is a bit trou­bled and ends up in some tight sit­u­a­tions. Part psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller, part mys­tery, this se­ries is al­ways ex­cit­ing. There are cur­rently four books in the se­ries and I am hop­ing for the next book to come out soon. Scaredy Squir­rel (2008) By Melanie Watt I like to think I am a nondis­crim­i­nat­ing reader, so I’m adding my fa­vorite chil­dren’s se­ries to this list. Scaredy Squir­rel is a great se­ries for chil­dren about dif­fer­ent life events that chil­dren may be ap­pre­hen­sive about. Scaredy tells it like it is. From hol­i­day tales to mak­ing a new friend, Scaredy can help chil­dren un­der­stand what life’s all about. Adults will find this se­ries amus­ing and en­joy­able.
