My drug of choice is writing––writing, art, reading, inspiration, books, creativity, process, craft, blogging, grammar, linguistics, and did I mention writing?

Best Y.A. Series (Poll; Semifinal 2)

What is the best Young Adult (Y.A.) Series?

A warm thanks to everyone who voted in our first semifinal poll. Though a few of the results were pretty close, the gap between the top five (which will go on to the final round) and the six titles beneath it was wide enough to be unambiguous.

The five titles that will be going on to  our final poll are:

The Chronicles of Narnia - C.S. Lewis
Harry Potter- J.K. Rowling
Trickster Duology - Tamora Pierce
Percy Jackson & the Olympians - Rick Riordan
The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins

Methinks Lewis is going to cause some old school smackdowns on these young upstarts in the finals.

This week, our second semifinal poll will have the exact same rules (five [5] votes; ONLY one week). Find the poll in the same place, at the bottom left of the side menus.

Warriors - Erin Hunter
His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman
A Wrinkle in Time Series - Madeleine L'Engle
Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey
Uglies/Pretties/Specials - Scott Westerfeld
Stainless Steel Rat - Harry Harrison
Heralds of Valdemar - Mercedes Lackey
OZ -L Frank Baum
The Books of Swords - Fred Saberhagen
Death Gate Cycle - Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman
Winnie The Pooh - A.A. Milne

A week from today I will take the top five titles from this poll and add them to the series above for the final round.
