Trilogies – the things that we all crave. Sometimes, three is too much, when we think that the series could have been squeezed into two books. Other times, three books isn’t nearly enough, but there is no hope of more coming around the corner. So today, I’m talking trilogies. My favorites, because we need some positivity on Mondays – no bad vibes! Right? Instead of giving a list of trilogies everyone knows about, I’m going to focus on the hidden gems (i.e. the ones that don’t get talked about enough).
First up, the Darkest Powers trilogy by Kelley Armstrong. My high school freshmen self sped through these books – and I mean SPED! I loved these books. They had a quirky main character, Chloe Saunders, and a strange orphanage-like place for kids with supernatural powers. However, Chloe is totally unaware of her circumstance. Also, there’s a love triangle! Y’all know I love those! I had an unusual favorite while reading these books, a favorite that didn’t turn into everyone else’s favorite until later. It was one of the main reasons that I loved these books so much.
I’m a super huge fan of mermaids. I’m not sure why, I just love them. I love stories about them and the various ways they are told. There really aren’t that many mermaid books out there – in all honestly, there aren’t enough. If you’re looking for a light, fluffy mermaid trilogy, the Fins trilogy by Tera Lynn Childs is the one to snatch up. It was an impulse buy, and I’ve reread it, and will definitely be rereading it again. Both time that I’ve read these books I finished each in less than a day. It’s just good. Lily Sanderson is the Little Mermaid personified, as in her land legs aren’t that great. Plus, Quince Fletcher, with his leather jacket and biker boots, has a permanent residence on my book boyfriends list!
Who doesn’t love books that incorporate music? I know I do. The Jamieson Brothers novels follow the Jamieson brothers, Peter, Adam, and Garrett, as they find their ways in music, life, and love. My favorite in the series is Peter’s book, A Rock in a Hard Place, but after one, you have to read the others!
As soon as I think that Greek mythology-based books have reached their limit, I found these books. It took me approximately four days to finish all of them, I loved them so much. Each book is told in three different perspectives and are companions and an interconnected series at the same time. It’s an amazing trilogy and might be my favorites series that talked about the mighty twelve on Mount Olympus. Book One: Charlie and Katrina (with the “help” of True Olympia); Book Two: Peter and Claudia (again, with the help of True); Book Three: True and Orion (oh, and Darla and Wallace – two romances!).
