Even though I read a lot of series, I still seem to miss some along the way. A lot of it probably has to do with not enough time, but these five series are a priority for me.
Every edit on Tumblr about this series is responsible for my desire to read The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. Honestly I feel like I know too much to not have read them. Now that I own the first two, I will hopefully be delving into them soon.
The amount of times I hear the Throne of Glass series mentioned in this community is a constant reminder that I need to get to them. I have not read any of Sarah J. Maas’ books but 2016 is the year.
A Court of Thorns and Roses is Maas’ other series that I intend to get to next year. I now own the first book which I need to get to before the second is released. A twist on Beauty and the Beast…how have I not read it yet?
Another book I heard a ton about in 2015 was An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. Authors and bloggers alike constantly push this one and it has certainly caught my eye. A brutal fantasy is right up my alley, so fingers crossed I love it.
The 5th Wave series by Rick Yancey came onto my radar when the trailer was released for the book to movie adaptation. From what I saw, I am definitely on board. We’ll see if I get to it before its January release.
Have you read any of these series yet? Going to start them next year? Let me know in the comments and check back next week for my Top 5 Books of the Year!
