Hey there Booklovers!
I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I have a lot of series that I either own and still need to read, or series that I need to buy, that I really want to read. Now, after I compiled this list, I realised that there are quite a few books - so I don't think I'll get them all read this year, but I will strive to get them started and some of the shorter ones finished.
So, let me know if you've read any of these series, or what series you are planning to read in 2016!
1. Fallen Series by Lauren Kate (6 Books)
I read the first book a few years ago, and I really enjoyed it. I had planned on continuing the series back then, but it just never happened. I'm hoping to be able to start and finish the series this year, and I really hoped that I still love the story as much as I did when I first read Fallen.
2. The Secrets Of The Immoral Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott (6 books)
My friend read the first four books of the series back in high school (about five years ago now) and she really enjoyed them, and the premise sounded like something I would like, so I got the first three books. I attempted to read the first one, but just wasn't in the mood for it, but I really want to get into the series, as I've heard really good things about it - let's hope I can start it in 2016!
3. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer (6 books)
I was planning on starting the series in 2015, but as the year progressed, I just never picked up the first book. Now that the final book has been released (apart from the novella bind-up coming in 2016), I feel like it's a great time to marathon all the books and finally jump aboard the Lunar Chronicles train.
4. Throne Of Glass by Sarah J. Maas (currently 5 books)
This series has received nothing but praise, and the first book has been sitting on my shelf for the past year, waiting to be picked up. With the fourth book having just come out, everyone is talking about how amazing the books are, so I need to get on board. My plan is to catch up before the next book comes out later in the year.
5. The Kanin Chronicles by Amanda Hocking (3 books)
This series is the spin-off of The Trylle Trilogy, which I absolutely loved, so I'm ashamed that I haven't read this trilogy yet. I did start, but only got halfway through the first book before getting distracted by other books. 2016 is the year that I read these books and dive back into this world.
6. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare (6 books)
I'm ashamed to say that the most I've read of this series is the blurb for City of Bones! This series has gotten heaps of praise, and with the Shadowhunters TV series kicking off in January, I seriously need to jump on board and read this series! The fact that these gorgeous new UK covers just came out makes me want to start reading them right now!
7. The Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
I don't know which I should be more ashamed about, The Mortal Instruments or LOTR! I've never seen the movies either, so I don't know that much about this world. I was never planning on reading or watching the series, but since joining the online book community, I've realised that I actually want to know what the story is about since so many people love it. I'm hoping to read the trilogy, plus The Hobbit, in 2016.
8. A Song Of Ice & Fire by George R.R. Martin
This is just a series that I feel compelled to read, as I want to watch the show. I want to be a good reader, and actually read (or start to read) the books before diving into the show, because I know I won't pick up the books overwise. I don't know if I'll ever read the entire series, but I want to at least read A Game Of Thrones, just so I can experience George R.R. Martin's highly praised writing.
9. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick (4 books)
Like the Fallen series, I read the first book a few years back and really enjoyed it. I was definitely going through an angel/fallen angel phase while everyone was going through a Twilight phase, so I'm hoping I still enjoy these types of books. I'm planning on reading on the series in the first part of the year, and the other in the second part of the year, because they are similar and I don't want to get the stories mixed up!
10. Starbound by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner (3 books)
I read Illuminae in 2015 and absolutely loved it, so have been wanting to read more by the two authors, as well as some more spacey & science fiction reads. This trilogy fulfils all of that, and I'm excited to dive in! I've heard great things about these books, and the covers are insanely gorgeous. I've just ordered the first book, so I'm hoping to jump into the world in the next few months.
