Like anyone else with a love for reading, I’m trying to read just about everything. But aside from standalones, I love series. There’s a lot I haven’t read and want to read. I feel like everyone has already read all the popular series and I’m so behind! So, I sat down one day and decided to write down some series that I haven’t gotten into yet, based on what I’ve seen floating around on bookstagram. There may be a part two coming, I don’t know. But for now, below are some series that I’ve got to read.
I remember walking into Barnes and Nobles and seeing Illuminae placed on a table in the young adult section. I flipped through the pages expecting to see, well, paragraphs. Instead, I got a mix of various documents in a report-like fashion detailing an invasion occurring in the main characters’ home. Like I always do, I checked it’s Goodreads score and skimmed over multiple raving reviews. It was enough for me to add it and the additional two books to my TBR list.
When I read the summary for Cinder, a retelling of Cinderella, it piqued my interest. I love fairytale retellings. Of course, I haven’t read the summaries for following three books as not to spoil anything for myself. But I think I will enjoy Cinder enough to continue on.
I honestly never knew this series existed. A couple of weeks ago I saw the third and last installment, Darkdawn, circulating around the book community. So of course, I jumped right on over to Goodreads to read the synopsis and look at the average score. With a score of 4.31 out of 5 stars and an intriguing summary, The Nevernight Chronicles is a must on my TBR list.
I know, I know. How have I not read the Harry Potter series??? The answer to that is simple. I just never had the chance. I want to own the box set before I settle down and dig into it. And that box set is not cheap. AT ALL. I’ve seen all eight of the movies countless times. But movies are seldom like the books. I don’t think I need to say anymore. I just need to read this series. Pronto.
