I love freebie week, so of course I wanted to talk about book series! While I like a good stand alone novel, the series are where it’s at. I love going on an adventure with the characters and exploring new worlds. I just hate when it all has to come to an end. For this list I have chosen books that I have either started reading and still need to finish, or series that I am looking forward to starting.
1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
I am near enough halfway through this series and I am going to try my best to read the rest before the final book comes out later on this year. I can’t wait to dive back into it and find out what will happen to the characters that I love.
2. A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab
I have only read the first book so far, but I have the second one ready and waiting on my book shelf. I will be aiming to read the last two this year as I have heard that they only get better, especially with the last one. I will probably end up reading more of Schwab’s work because she is amazing.
3. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
After having read the first and the second book in this series, I am just waiting to get paid so I can finally read the last in this trilogy. After the ending in the second one I can’t wait to find out what happens to everyone and what the fate of Ravka will be. Plus, once I do I can then move on to Six of Crows (which I am most excited about).
4. Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi
As this book is my favourite of 2018 so far, it is only right that I be so excited about reading the rest in the trilogy. This world is so rich and magical, the characters feel so real, and the conflicts are some of the best I’ve read. 2019 seems a while away, but I can’t wait for more of Adeyemi’s writing.
5. Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake
Can the next book just come out already! I am dying to find out what happens to the three queens, especially after what happened in One Dark Throne. I am so invested in this story, I have bought all the novellas just to keep me going until Two Dark Reigns comes out. I just hope it is worth the wait.
6. The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton
I’m not sure how many books Clayton will end up doing set within this world, but I know for definite that there is another book after The Belles. I can’t wait to see more of this dark, whimsical and fantasical world, as well as the characters who are so conflicted. Fingers crossed it is as good as this was, because I loved it.
7. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black
Already there are ARCs of The Wicked King out in the world and I want one so badly! I am going to be insanely jealous of anyone who gets the chance to read it, whereas I have to wait until next January (curls into a ball and cries). Everyone should read this series, it’s amazing.
8. Scythe by Neal Shusterman
I have heard so much about this book (as well as the sequel) and I am so tempted to buy it. I watch Peruseproject (aka Regan) and she has read them recently and is getting her boyfriend to read them now as well. I feel like I am missing out so I need to catch up.
9. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
Again, another series I have heard Regan talk about a lot on her channel and I even have the first book on my shelf. The only thing that has stopped me from reading it is that I know that if I love it, I will want the others. With six in the series (which is now complete, I think) I need to be able to afford them all at once if I love it and want to read them one after the other.
10. Furyborn by Claire Legrand
A debut novel and the first in a series that I am so excited to read. I pre-ordered this bad boy, which comes out in June, and it still seems so far away, I just need it now. I follow the author on social media and every time I see little bits of information I just get more excited. If you haven’t heard about this book then you need to check it out.
And that is my complete list. Of course, there are lots of other books I am looking forward to reading but I would be here all day if I were to list them.
What series are you looking forward to reading the most?
