This week’s prompts is: Top Ten Series I’ve Been Meaning To Start But Haven’t (topic originally done March 2013) — anyone else have a mile long list of series to start like I do??
So I have been meaning to start this series for ages! I bought Cinder sometimes last year but still haven’t picked it up. I read Heartless, also by Marissa Meyer and also a retelling and didn’t enjoy it. It wasn’t horrible, but I just didn’t enjoy it, you can find my review for that review HERE. I will be reading Cinder in July as the Book of the Month for a Goodreads group YA Book Bloggers, feel free to join us if you are are YA book blogger haha!
I honestly have no excuse as to why I haven’t started this series! I own the first book in the series but just haven’t picked it up yet! I really want to try some Victoria/V.E. Schwab as I have heard so many amazing things about basically all of her books! I will probably read the first book soon as I am on a book buying ban and I want to get my physical TBR down a tonne before buying anymore books, so I will read this soon.
I have read Strange the Dreamer and it is my favourite book so far this year! I wanted to read this series before reading Strange the Dreamer, but since reading it this series is a lot higher on my TBR!
So, another Victoria/V.E. Schwab series! Like I said before there is so many good comments about her books and that makes me want to read them! Also I have been told that The Savage Song has no romance.. If that is true, then that is awesome! I don’t know about Our Dark Duet as it only released a few days ago and I haven’t seen a tonner about it yet, but I do avoid reading reviews for books I haven’t read, so it may have been mentioned, but I just haven’t seen it!
I am reading The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken right now and enjoying it so far! But even before starting The Darkest Minds this book was on my TBR! I also haven’t really read any books about time travel so that is really intriguing me!
So this was one of the first retellings I ever added to my TBR! And I still haven’t got to it yet!! It seems like there is a tonne of books when you look at the series page on Goodreads because there is 9 prequels to this series, 9!! I think that is what kinda throws me off because each of them are around 100-150 pages! So that is basically 2 full novels before the actual series! And I do want to read them in order as they are prequels. I do still want to read this series though!
So I have been meaning to read a Rick Riordan book in years! But I still haven’t and this one kinda includes Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus, The Trials of Apollo & Magnus Chase, The Kane Chronicles and the Gods of Asgard series. So basically all of Rick Riordans books haha! I definitely want to start a Rick Riordan book soon!
So this is only the first 2 books as there is still 3 books to come out! Bloodwitch is the next one but it doesn’t have a cover yet. The world and magic system in this book sounds so interesting and everyone is talking about this book lately and I really want to get in on the hype!
For one thing these covers are gorgeous! The main reason this is on my TBR is that it is a Fantasy Historical Fiction book! That just sounds so intriguing to me as I’m pretty sure I haven’t read a fantasy historical fiction before, I might have, but I don’t think so! So this is really interesting to me and I’m keen
Again, these covers are gorgeous! This is actually a trilogy but Fireblood actually isn’t out until September and Nightblood isn’t out and doesn’t have a cover yet to use! This book was one of my highly anticipated from last year but I never got around to it! But I really want to get to it soon! It sounds amazing and its very highly praised!
Well that is all for today! I know I missed yesterdays Down the TBR Hole as I just literally forgot! So I will probably do it tomorrow or Thursday!
