We’ve all been there we start a series, fall in love with the characters then after book 1 we get distracted by shiny new books. Oops. I am not a monogamous reader, I never read two books of the series in a row or even in the same year.
I put myself on a book buying ban in 2019 and I’ve actually stuck to it! Through this I’ve realised how many series I own and need to get to. I’ve picked 5 that I just need to get back into and continue:
- His Fair Assassins – Robin LaFever
I loved the first two books in this series! I was obsessed with these badass women and their lives. It isn’t just about them being assassins but their past and what brought them to the monastery. I only have one book left in this series and I hope I love it as much as the first two.
2. The Demon Cycle – Peter V Brett
O man these are some thicc books. I’ve read the first 3 of 5 and the series is actually complete now! I started this before my bf and he’s been finished nearly a year now, lording over me that he knows what happens. This is an intense demon fighting fantasy with such character development, try it it’s awesome!
3. The Stormlight Archives – Brandon Sanderson
Brandon Sanderson is the king of thick tomes. The books in The Stormlight Archives that they are all split into 2 seperate books! I’ve finished Words of Radiance book 1 so I have 1.5 huge books to read to be up to date. This series is set to be 10 books long! 10! I still prefer Mistborn so I will see how the next book goes for me.
4. The Gentleman Bastard Sequence – Scott Lynch
I listened to the first 2 books in this series and loved it. The narrator is fantastic and has the snark down to a T. We got news of the fourth book coming out and oh man I’m excited! This is an amazing heist series centred around an awesome cast of characters.
5. The Lightbringer Series – Brent Weeks
Aww man this series! I just finished book 3 and I need to read Blood Mirror. The magic system is so cool, it is based on colours and each one has different magical and emotional properties. It’s huge but damn it’s worth it! This is another were I need to keep reading as my bf is only 1 book behind me and I can’t let him overtake me!
I hope I can get all the books finished this year! I have hope and motivations that’s all I need right? Right? *Looks at gigantic book stack and cries*
What fantasy worlds do you need to get back into?
