I have a bad habit of collecting series I haven’t started reading yet. It’s a problem. Usually, I do my research and am pretty sure I’m going to like a series. But sometimes, I don’t. And then I’m stuck with a box set of books I don’t want to read. I haven’t read any of the books from the series below. But I own most of the books in them, so I really should read them. Right?
Here are the series I already own and
want need to actually read this year:
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon. I have the first two books in this series, because it seems like something I will really like. I’ve been in the mood to read more fantasy lately, so I’m hoping to get around to this one (because if I like them, I need the matching edition of the third book, because I hate cover changes).
The Memoirs of Lady Trent by Marie Brennan. I recently picked up the first three book in this series because I found them all for about $2 each and couldn’t pass them up. I’m not entirely sure what they’re about, other than that they are fictional memoirs and involve dragons. But I’ve heard great things about them, and can’t wait to jump into the series.
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I have both of the novels in this duology, and have heard nothing but amazing things about them. The reason I haven’t picked them up yet is because I want to finish the Grisha trilogy first (and I kind of spoiled myself on the series ending halfway through the second book, and I’m not happy about it, so it’s slow going).
The Archived by Victoria Schwab. I’ve read almost all of Victoria Schwab’s books, and this one’s been on my TBR for months. By which I mean, I’m pretty sure I had this on my November 2015 TBR. So, it’s been a while. I’m intrigued, so I don’t know why I haven’t read it yet. It needs to happen.
The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen. I bought the first book right after it was released and then never read it. Which didn’t stop me from buying the second book when I saw it on Book Outlet. I need to start this, because I am weirdly tempted to buy book three, which just came out, and I need to make sure I like this series before I do that.
Are there any series you want to start this year? Let me know in the comments!
