My Favorite Book Series - Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer


In the 7th Grade, when the hardest part of my life so far was just beginning, one of my friends got me hooked to a book series that was really recent in coming out. After the very first chapter, I was hooked! There literally aren't enough words for how much I love this book series..

There are a total of 12 books in the series, the first one was published in 2002, the last book was published in 2014. The series starts out with Bloody Jack: Being an Account of the Curious Adventure of Mary "Jacky" Faber, Ship's Boy, which is where you're first introduced to Jacky, the protagonist that you can't help but love! These books have everything! Romance, adventure, suspense, comedy, history, and it'll make you feel excited, frustrated, sad, and angry! And that's just scratching the surface!

The Bloody Jack series is amazing because, the farther you read into the series, the better it gets. There are so many different events and different lines going on that it's nearly impossible to try and describe them to someone. I found myself, with every single book, staying up until the middle of the night frantically trying to get to the resolutions to relieve all the emotions going on. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for something new to read!

I started reading the books before they were all published, so my friends and I were constantly waiting for the next book to come out after we sped through the one before. At one point, we felt so in love with the series that we wrote some fan mail to the author! We talked about how much we loved the books, and how ready we were for the newest one to come out (we secretly hoped that we were the first ones to send him fan mail, which me most likely weren't, and that he'd send us a sneak peek of the book before it was published!). After several months, when we'd given up hope of getting a response, we received a manila envelope in the mail, and we almost peed ourselves with excitement! Along with a short letter that illustrated how much he appreciated taking the time out to write a letter, and how happy he was that we enjoyed the books so much. To our delight, he also included a signed photo for each of us from Jacky! (My thumb is over my name) Goodness! Just writing this post has gotten my heart racing again!


What's your favorite book series? What did you think about the Bloody Jack series?
