I know I shouldn’t be adding anymore books to my TBR, but this style of post is really helpful to look back on throughout the year especially when I’m stuck on which book to pick up next. These are just some of the series that I’ve been dying to start and I hopefully 2021 will finally be the year I dive into them!
The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
It’s official, I’m am completely and utterly in love with Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff and I need more! I saw these books in a bookshop in Oxford a couple of months ago for only a couple of pounds and I stupidly didn’t buy them! But not to worry I’ve just ordered them and I can’t wait to start reading them next month! I’ve heard so many good things about this series, and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to finally read them!
The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
If I don’t read this book by the end of the year then I’ve failed! This has been on my TBR for TWO YEARS and I’m suffering from some serious FOMO! Every time I re-read this books synopsis I get more and more excited and equally frustrated at myself because I know I’m going to adore this series.
The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson
As many of you know I’m obsessed with Brandon Sanderson and I’m eager to start another series! After looking through all of his series I decided I was craving more high-fantasy rather than sci-fi and settled for the epic that is the Stormlight Archive. I can’t wait to dive back into the wonderful world he creates and to meet a new and exciting cast of characters!
Blood and Ash Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Ever since I heard about this series, I knew had to have it! There is a strong, fierce heroine and her swoon-worthy personal guard, which leads to some pretty smouldering romance. YES PLEASE! As England has once again gone back into a full lockdown, I think it’s only appropriate that I treat myself to a few new books to keep me occupied and to provide me with some much needed escapism.
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon
I remember receiving the first chapter of this book and being completely hooked by not only our protagonist Paige but the whole concept of dream-walkers! The world Shannon has created is one I’m eager to explore and I think it’s about time I experience her wonderful writing and imagination. Plus this book has been sitting all alone and forgotten on my shelf for years and I think it deserves some much needed love.
The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini
Just before Christmas I treated myself to this entire series and I plan to make it my mission to read all of them! I have an unhealthy obsession with Dragons, so its crazy that I’ve yet to read this iconic series. And I know this is a controversial opinion but I don’t mind the film adaptation…!
Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco
This is a new addition to my TBR, and one which has finally captured my attention. Like many people, I weirdly enjoy a good-old murder documentary and I’m curious to see how Maniscalco adapts this classic murder mystery.
The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin
Post-apocalyptic mixed with Fantasy? What more could you want? One of my good friends from Univeristy keeps recommending this book to me, she loved it so much that she based her masters on it so I think it’s about time that I witness what all the fuss is about! I’ve yet to read a bad review about this series, so it’s fair to say I’m going into this series with high expectations!
