I think it’s pretty obvious I’m not a big fan of book series based on the books I’ve blogged about so far.
I tend to stay clear of book series because:
- They tend to not live up to their predecessor
- They get drawn out
- They’re overhyped
I’ve read a couple book series and loved them, Twilight for one but now that I’m older, I’ve realise how stupid it was (sorry). Twilight will still hold a very special place in my heart (she should’ve ended up with Jacob).
Anyway, here are some book series I’m hoping to read one day.
1. The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
The covers! The covers, guys! They are just so damn gorgeous! If I hadn’t heard so many good things about them, this series would definitely just be a cover buy. Also, I’ve heard so many good things about Ronan and the fanart I’ve seen of him are absolutely gorgeous. He reminds me of Tanaka from the anime Haikyuu!!
2. Thorne of Glass series by Sarah J. MAAS
I’m a little skeptical about this one. I’ve seen so many mixed reviews about it, mostly on the good side though. What I’m afraid of is, the number of books in the series. The novella aside, there are currently 5 books, with a number 6 coming out soon. I need to know why this series is so long? And I really hope it’s not too drawn out.
3. The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
Does the picture above have all the books in the series? I’m not entirely sure. This one, I’m really afraid of picking up but I do want to read it one day. I see that Cassandra is definitely milking out the world she created with all the other books she’ve written. If I like the Mortal Instruments, I’ll pick up her other works.
4. The Wolves of Mercy Falls series by Maggie Stiefvater
5. An Ember in the Ashes series by Sabaa Tahir
I started this a while back, before all the hype. Read like about 5 pages and put it down (I was in a reading slump). Now that “A Torch Against the Night” is out, all I ever hear about is how good it is. So I’m really looking forward to picking this back up.
6. Something Strange and Deadly Trilogy by Susan Dennard
The covers are gorgeous! Plus I want to try reading about zombies.
7. The Iron Fey series by Julie KagawaInterest piqued.
8. The Shiva Trilogy by Amish Tripathi
For now, I hope to read those eight book series.
What book series have you read and loved? Any suggestions?
