I’m up to lucky number Day 13 of the 30 Day Geek Out Challenge and today’s prompt asks me to think about my favorite book series.
If I was asked this question a few years ago, my answer most definitely would have been the Dune series (the original six books anyway). Currently though, this honor goes to the Cosmere novels of the extraordinarily talented and prolific Brandon Sanderson. Put simply, the Cosmere is a shared universe in which many of the author’s most popular series (including Mistborn, Stormlight Archive, and Elantris to name a few) take place. Although each series can by design be enjoyed individually, there’s already been a lot of crossover and fans (of course) have kept an alert eye out for them. I’m already a few thousand pages into this and eagerly awaiting the next releases, so I figure this series will be sticking with me for awhile now!
