If you know me, you know that I’m terrible at starting and even worse, finishing book series (yes, even the Harry Potter series, I still have to finish reading the Deathly Hallows). When I read the first book in a series, I tend to say that I’ll read the rest of the books but I never get round to doing it. The only book series I’ve actually completed is the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before series (You can find my review for the first book here, the second book here and the last book here!) I feel like the odd one out in the book community in the context that there are so many popular book series I haven’t read at all that everyone else seems to have read. In my list, there are some that I’m definitely planning to read and some that I probably won’t read but might give a chance.
The Mortal Instruments series
This has been on my TBR for YEARS. The hype around this book series is still ongoing and I’m missing out! Especially because the film and tv show adaptation have also been made! Although it was on my TBR I didn’t really make it an aim to read this series. But, when I saw that 5 out of 6 of the books were in good condition, in a charity shop AND for £2 each, I had to buy them. So the first 3 books are currently sitting on my bookshelf in my university accommodation waiting to be read.
Throne of Glass series
I’ve heard such good things about Sarah J Maas’ books and this series (as well as the A Court of Thornes and Roses series). My brother has the second book chilling in his room but I haven’t picked it up because I still haven’t read the first book! I hope to pick up this book series since it seems really interesting. I guess only time will tell if I actually do!
I never got into vampire books, tv shows, and films and this is one example. I have mixed feelings about starting to read the Twilight series. From NayaReadsandSmile’s video where she read Twilight for the first time, I don’t think I’m going to like it AT ALL. I didn’t watch the films either and I don’t think I will for a long time. It’s a very slim chance that I’ll give this series a try.
Shatter Me series
It’s funny how I follow Tahereh Mafi on Twitter and Instagram but I’ve never read any of her books. I have got to read the Shatter Me series soon. YA dystopian books are the kind of books I like to read, so I’ll hopefully be reading the Shatter Me series soon!
