As 2018 is starting and so many fantastic new books are coming out, I want to talk about some older series that are out that I desperately need to read. Now, this isn’t necessarily on my TBR for the year, but I want to try and and start at least 3 of these. Now I only included book that have at least 2 books out in the series all ready, because if I wanted to just talk about series starting this year we would be here forever. Later in the week I’ll talk about some series that I want to get caught up on in 2018, again not including 2018 releases.
Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
There’s honestly no reason I haven’t started this series yet. I mean I’ve read Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom, and enjoyed them both – though I do want to reread them. I want to explore more of this world and the powers and the politics. I just really need to actually read it. Plus, I know there’s a spin off series happening, so I need to catch up with this before I’m even more behind.
Red Rising Series by Pierce Brown
I want to get more into Adult SFF this year and I know this is a highly recommended series. It also just got an addition to the series, so I’m already further behind. I already know I have problems with the beginning of Red Rising, so let’s see if I’ll even want to continue with the series.
The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare
I want to actually read a complete Cassandra Clare series and I’ve only heard good things about this trilogy. I’ve only read City of Bones (though I did read it twice) and I have no real plans on reading the rest of The Mortal Instruments series, and I definitely don’t want to read The Infernal Devices (Steampunk/Victoria Era not my thing). But I already know all the main plot points, so I don’t care about spoilers or anything.
Also, let us please ignore how hideous the Queen of Air an Darkness cover is.
Nevernight Chronicles by Jay Kristoff
The first non-complete series on this list, but not the last. (I know TDA isn’t complete either, but at least there’s a cover for book 3). The is another series where I’ve only heard amazing things. I’m excited to the morally complex character and all the action. All I really needed to know about this series is that there are assassins, and that’s enough for me.
The Conqueror’s Saga by Kiersten White
I read a sampler And I Darken years ages ago and I really liked, then I proceeded to never pick up the actual book. I like the genderbent historical influence, and I’m excited to see some more “unlikeable” protagonists in YA.
Winternight Trilogy by Katherine Arden
This is a fairly recent series, with both books already out having been released last year, but they have taken the book world by storm. This fantasy series sounds enchanting and mystical and I have seen so many people rave about this series. I honestly don’t know much about it, only that it’s a Russian mythology inspired historical fantasy, and that all I really need.
The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson
I feel like this is an underrated YA fantasy series, but I’ve seen a few people mentioning it recently, and it sounds great, and filled with lots of politics (which is a favorite element of mine).
