8 Days of Hanukkah: Day 4

To celebrate the 8 days of Hanukkah, the four book nerds will each select an author or book series that is meaningful to us to share with all of you.

Today I'm going to talk about a book series that was meaningful for me in 2012. And the lucky series is....


The beloved 8-book Maximum Ride series came to end this August, with the final book, Nevermore. To give you a sense of how much I loved this series, I consulted my Goodreads to see when I'd read them:

#1 The Angel Experiment: Review posted September 14, 2011
#2 School's Out...Forever: Read from September 26 to 28, 2011
#3 Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports: Read from November 5 to 9, 2011
#4: The Final Warning: Read from November 9 to 13, 2011
#5: Max: Read from November 13 to 17, 2011
#6: Fang: Read from November 17 to 22, 2011
#7: Angel: Read from December 4 to 14, 2011
#8 Nevermore: Read August 2012

So, basically, I just flew through these eight books like it was nothing! I was satisfied with Nevermore: sad to see the series end, but at the same time, I was ready for it. It would have felt like it was dragging for no reason had it kept going. 

Some final thoughts on the Maximum Ride series...

1. Favorite book in the series: Fang, hands down. It had surprise, heartbreak, non-stop action...LOVED it!
2. Going back and reading all my reviews, I just noticed that my opinion totally changed on the love story from book 1 to book 8. 
3. Shortly after finishing Nevermore, I got the chance to see James Patterson speak. If I could do it again, I would have brought my copy of Fang to the event and stood in line -- no matter how long it was! -- to have him sign it.

Have you read this series? What do you think of it?
