Series I Haven’t Finished…

I used to be really good at finishing series, but now that I have less time than I would like to be able to read, it can be hard to finish a series. Some series though, I have no excuse to not finishing other than I just didn’t pick up the second book for whatever reason! Anyways, here are a few series I haven’t finished but do plan to.

Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo

When I read the first book in this duology, I mostly skimmed it and didn’t really appreciate or understand what was going on…I feel like I had really high expectations for the book because of the hype, but also wasn’t in the mood to read it at the time so I didn’t love it like everyone else did and does. I do have the second book, Crooked Kingdom though, so I would really like to re read Six of Crows and then jump into Crooked Kingdom! I know I will like it once I actually read it, but when will that be? Hopefully soon.

Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard trilogy by Rick Riordan

The third book for this trilogy is actually coming out in a few days, but sadly I still haven’t read the second book…I love Rick Riordan, and have made that clear on this blog, but I honestly didn’t love this series as much as his others. That is probably the main reason I didn’t read the next book once I got it, but I would really like to give it a second chance. Sadly, I would have to re read the first book which would take up more time, but maybe once the third book comes out I will just binge the trilogy. Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.

Trials of Apollo series by Rick Riordan

I know, I know, I am just not up to date with all of the Rick Riordan books! He just comes out with too many books in a year and once you fall behind…well good luck. Anyways, this was another new series by him that I didn’t absolutely adore. I did like it, but I feel like I need to give the first book a re read before jumping into the second one. It is possible that I compared it too much to the Percy Jackson series or the Heroes of Olympus series which is why I didn’t like it as much as I hoped. Hopefully that is the case because I know it is a series a lot of people enjoy!

Blood of Gods and Royals by Eleanor Herman

This is a really interesting and complex series that includes one of my favourite things, Greek mythology, which is the main reason I picked it up. I really enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to the second book. However, it was a new release which meant I had to wait an entire year before being able to purchase the second book, Empire of Dust. By then I wasn’t as excited because I completely forgot what happened it the book! So yeah, another re read to add to my never ending list because I really did like the characters and story line.

Those are a few series that I have started but haven’t finished…and hopefully in the future I will! I hope you enjoyed this blog post and don’t forget to check out my last blog post: NaNoWriMo Prep #1

March 2017 TBR!

March is right around the corner and I am ready to kick the month of with some epic books!

lady-midnight-by-cassandra-clareLady Midnight by Cassandra Clare – is the first book in Cassandra Clare’s new trilogy, the Dark Artifices that came out last year. Now the new one, Lord of Shadows is coming out May 23rd and I am SO excited! Lady Midnight is such an epic, action packed story that will make your heart throb with feelings. It follows our main characters, two teenage shadowhunters named Emma and Julian who live in a world filled with demons and magic… and that is really all I can say without spoiling the rest of books but trust me, its amazing.

p-s-i-still-love-you-jenny-han-coverP.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han – I re read the first book in this series, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, and just have to pick up the next one! To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is about a girl named Lara Jean who writes love letters to all the boys she has loved before, but when they are mysteriously sent out she finds herself digging a hole of lies to prevent the boy she likes from finding out she loves him. P.S. I Still Love You is a continuation of that and I am so happy to be reading it again. Also, the final book in the trilogy comes out in April so I am preparing myself for that because it is going to be amazing.

hammer-of-thor-cover-riordan-698x1024The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan – I was going to try and read this book in February but it didn’t work out so here I am again. I love Rick Riordan’s books and his Norse mythology based new series is really interesting and hilarious so I am super excited to read the second book! The first book, The Sword of Summer, is about a boy named Magnus Chase who is suddenly thrust into a world filled with Norse gods as he sets off on a quest to search the Nine Worlds for a weapon that has been lost for thousands of years. All of Rick Riordan’s books are a really fun and entertaining journey so I have no doubt I will love this book.

courtofmistandfuryA Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas – I am already half way through this MASSIVE book but for some reason I put it down a few months ago and never picked it back up. This is the second book to A Court of Thorns and Roses which follows our main character Feyre who after killing a Faerie, is given the choice of death or living out the rest of her mortal life in the land of the Fey. I love all the action and the characters in this book, and while I would only recommend it for anyone over the age of fourteen…it is still a must read!

Those are the books I plan on reading this month and I hope you enjoyed. Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading Update!

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!

 

October 2016 Book Releases!

There a few things that I am excited for that are coming in a month of October so here they are and I hope you enjoy!

The Midnight Star by Marie Lu – I haven’t read the Young Elites series but I have read the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu so now that this new series of hers has come to a close I will definitely pick it up soon! I have heard great things and I know I will love it. This book comes out on October 11th.

Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Aime Kaufman – Again, I haven’t read the first book in this series, Illuminae but I am dying to! I have heard nothing but fantastic things about this unique and interesting new series and I cannot wait to get my hands on it! This book will be on shelves on October 18th.

The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan – I am very excited for this new Rick Riordan book because I have been a huge fan of him for about 5 years now! I wasn’t blown away by the first book, Sword of Summer but all the same, I did love it and am excited to continue on with this wonderful world which will be continued on October 4th.

Those are some of the books I am most excited for and I hope some of you may be too!

(Not in Order) Don’t forget to comment your most anticipated sequels and check out my last post: Camp NaNoWriMo Writing Tips #2!

A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir – I am SO excited for this book because An Ember in the Ashes was such a fantastic book! When I finished it I needed the sequel but sadly it’s not even out yet but it will be on August 30th of 2016! If you haven’t read An Ember in the Ashes I highly recommend it because it will blow your mind.

The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan – I love all of Rick Riordan’s books, and while the first book in this series, The Sword of Summer wasn’t my favourite, I still really liked it and cannot wait for the sequel! Also I will be meeting Rick Riordan on his fall tour of this book and I am SO excited!!!

Empire of Storms by Sarah J Maas – This is the 5th book in the Throne of Glass series which is definitely one of my favourite series. Sarah J Maas is such an amazing writer and her stories are always so detailed and beautiful! I haven’t read the 4th book, Queen of Shadows, yet but I am planning on reading it once Empire of Storms comes out as well which will be on September 8 of 2016!

Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare – This is the second book in the Dark Artifices series which I absolutely LOVE!!! Cassandra Clare has been my favourite author ever since I read her Mortal Instruments series 3 years ago. When I read Lady Midnight, the first book in her new trilogy, I thought I couldn’t have been more blown away because it was phenomenal! Please read all her books if you haven’t because they are soooo worth it. This book is coming out sometime in April of 2017!

King’s Cage by Victoria Aveyard – I really did enjoy her first book, Red Queen, and I am excited to finally get the 3rd book too! Despite the fact I haven’t read the second book…but I will, I promise! The story is just really fun and easy to read and if you haven’t read any of the two already out definitely check them out! This book will be out in stores on February 7th 2017!

Those are some sequels I am most excited for that are coming out in the next year! Hope you enjoyed it 🙂
