Since starting this blog a few months ago, I’ve been a little bit more adventurous in my series-reading (seriously, all I’ve been reading before was Harry Potter, Percy Jackson and school books). But I’ve finally ventured into some new series and the first book intrigued me but I’ve neglected to read on. Not for not wanting to, but because there are too many amazing books out there that I’ve literally forgotten to actually continue on with a series.
1. Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan
Okay, this isn’t new but I LOVE THIS SERIES. Like honestly. Percabeth is everything to me. But for some reason, I have not finished the series, namely the last book. Why? Because I thought, for some reason, that the author said that he would include all 7 POVs (I’m not blaming Rick Riordan or anything) and that got me so excited and when I bought the book, I literally flipped through all of the chapters, in search of Percy’s name. NOTHING. I was so heartbroken that I couldn’t stand to crack open the spine. It’s sitting lovely on my shelf. But I’ve resolved to finish this book, THIS YEAR. NO MATTER WHAT.
2. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
I read Cinder last year and it was enjoyable. It had moments of predictability but I can overlook that because I liked the titular character. Since Fairest is out (and a lot of people loved it), I probably should read Scarlet and Cress then Fairest in time for Winter.
3. The Raven Boys cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
Two words: Raven Boys. Must continue. Must read. And ever since I finished the first book, I’m not kidding, my mind has been revolving around those four boys.
4. The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
Because I hear the assassin finally makes an appearance and I like to give second chances to books. And I hear SJM’s writing gets stronger and stronger with every book so yay for that.
5. The Anna/Lola/Isla Companion Series by Stephanie Perkins
I read a little bit of Lola but I put it down last year because I skipped Anna. And although they aren’t related in terms of storylines, I’m a bit OCD in that I need to read stuff in order.
