Series I Need to Finish!

I am pretty good about finishing series, trilogies and duologies when I start them, but there a few that I for some unknown reason haven’t finished.

sixSix of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo – I have read the first book, Six of Crows and thought it was a pretty amazing book yet I still haven’t finished the final book, Crooked Kingdom. The books is just sitting on my shelf, waiting for me to read it and hopefully I will get to it this year!

throneofglasssetThrone of Glass series by Sarah J Maas – I really enjoyed reading the first book in this series, Throne of Glass and even the second book, Crown of Midnight, but for some reason it took me FOREVER to finish Heir of Fire and even then, I didn’t enjoy it as much as I hoped. The sixth and final book is coming out this year and at this point I don’t know when I am going to continue on with this series.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series by Rick Riordan – There is only two books out at the moment and I have both, but still haven’t got around to reading this second one, Hammer of Thor. I really want to read it though because I loved Sword of Summer! Is was witty and such a fun and fast paced read so I hope I get to the next book in the next few months.

Kiss of Deception trilogy by Mary E. Pearson – I read Kiss of Deception either two or one years ago and I liked it a lot. It was very action packed, and I also really enjoyed reading in all of our characters POV which is rare for me when there are multiple. The final book came out last year but I still need to catch up and read the second one, Heart of Betrayal!

Those are the 4 main series that I haven’t finished but really want to and I hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading Update!

The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan Non-Spoiler Review

I just finished The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan today which is the first book his new book series so I decided to do a non-spoiler book review!

The Hidden Oracle is about the god Apollo, who is cast down to Earth by Zeus after angering him. The problem is that he has no godly powers and he is ordinary and utterly normal. At the same time something evil is on the horizon and Apollo has to learn to use what he has to stop it along with a few other companions. We even get to see some of the characters from his previous series!

I was really excited to start this book because I love all of Rick Riordan’s books. I have to admit I was a bit nervous that it wasn’t going to meet my expectations but I really enjoyed this book! There were slow parts but it is the first book in a new series so I didn’t really mind. It was so great seeing the old characters but I also loved meeting the new characters and getting to know a few better. Another bonus was that there was a lot of diversity in this book which I thought was great and I hope more authors add more diverse characters in their books. I think overall I would give this book a 4/5 stars just because while I enjoyed it, it wasn’t the strongest book ever. I would still recommend it to middle grade readers or anyone who loves his other series!
