Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t
(Sigh, too many.)
A Darker Shade of Magic – by V E Schwab
I am behind. This is now a complete trilogy. It’s about parallel Londons and magic and sass. Basically everything I could ever love.
Blood Song – by Anthony Ryan
My boyfriend recommended this to me! It’s an in-depth adult fantasy with intricate plot and an interesting protagonist. I honestly don’t know a lot about it and I’d like to keep it that way. I can’t wait to get into it, I have high expectations!
The Waking Fire – by Anthony Ryan
All I know is that this isn’t about dragons, it’s about drakes. I don’t even know how they’re different. (Maybe they’re smaller?) I think there’s also a quest? Honestly, I’m down. Give me quests and fighting and awesomeness. (The sequel is out in July!)
Mistborn – by Brandon Sanderson
Yes, I’m counting the entire trilogy. It’s a heist set in a high fantasy world where characters ingest different types of metals to perform different magics (it’s called alomancy). Brandon described The Final Empire as a story that occurs after the hero has failed. (Like, Sauron going, “hey thanks for bringing my ring back”, thereby slaying the hero, and the story goes on after that.) I am so chuffing excited. AH.
Wax and Wayne – by Brandon Sanderson
Another trilogy! This is Mistborn Era #2. It happens 300 or so years after the events of the Mistborn trilogy. I am ignoring the blurbs for these in case they spoil me, but I’m definitely picking them up once I’ve read the prior trilogy!
These Broken Stars – by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
Yes this is an Aussie sci-fi trilogy. Yes I’m Australian. No, I haven’t read them yet. Excuse me while I hide in shame.
Red Rising – by Pierce Brown
All I know is sci-fi, possibly gods, and it’s action-packed. I don’t really need to know anything else. *buckles self in*
The Lunar Chronicles – by Marissa Meyer
I’ve just included the whole series here because why not, right? I thoroughly enjoyed Cinder (book 1, sci-fi Cinderella retelling) and am yet to get to the rest. I own them all so a binge is definitely in order! Gotta get on the sci-fi and fairytale retelling bandwagon!
The Young Elites – by Marie Lu
I’ve read this but not the following two! A dark YA fantasy with an anti-hero main character, PLUS special abilities? I don’t know why I put this series on pause, it’s seriously promising that I’ll fall in love with it. And yet here I am, staring at them on my bookshelf.
Steelheart – by Brandon Sanderson
YES THIS IS A FAVE. I loved Steelheart so much. I just haven’t continued, cos I suck. So here I come, Firefight and Calamity. Brandon’s writing a new trilogy in the same world called The Apocalypse Guard and I am SO EXCITED about it, I need to catch up cos it’s estimated to come out in 2018 and I need it in my life!!
OKAY THERE YA GO. I think that’s all. ❤
