We’ve all done it right! Fallen in love with an author through one series, instantly gone out and bought every other book the have written and then… simply forgotten to read them. Some of the authors on this list I would class as favourites of mine, and yet I have only read one series of books by them, others have written series that I have enjoyed and because of that bought new books that they released.
The majority of these books have been on my TBR for faaaar too long, and you might all shout at me when you read some of the titles… I know alright! But I am determined to pick all these books up eventually… it’s just like Mr Kristoff writes “Too many books, not enough centuries.”
Top Ten Tuesday is run by Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl and you should definitely go give her blog some love.
The Villians series – V.E. Schwab
Ok this ones of me! But in my defence, I loved ADSOM and then simply couldn’t get into Schwabs Monsters of Verity series. I think this made me wary to pick up the Villians, but with all the amazing reviews out there now I definitely need to give these books a try.
Illuminae Trilogy – Jay Kristoff & Amie Kaufman
I read Aurora Rising earlier this year and absolutely loved it! I think the layout of these books is one of the things that has put me off reading them, however, literally everyone I know is telling me to read them…so they must be good right? I already have a copy of Illuminae so I will be picking this up soon.
Catwoman – Sarah J Maas
I’ve actually read and loved every single Maas book except Catwoman! Not sure why I never got round to picking it up, because I loved Wonder Woman by Leigh Bardugo and had high hopes for this one.
The Book of Dust – Phillip Pullman
God I loved the Northern Lights trilogy, and I’m super excited for the BBC series due out soon. I pre-ordered this pretty much as soon as it was announced… and still haven’t got round to reading it. I’m not sure if I’m wary it wont live up to the original series, but I really need to get a move on and pick this one up.
The Way of Kings – Brandon Sanderson
I devoured Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy, and his recent foray into Sci-Fi Skyward, but this series is giving me slight palpatations… its just so huge! I’m sure I will enjoy it because the reviews are awesome, I think I just need to set aside a lengthy period of time where I can (attempt) to fly though this series.
Lifel1k3 – Jay Kristoff
I’ve actually only read the Nevernight series by Kristoff, but boy are those books good. Not one to shy away from the dark side, Nevernight became one of my all time fantasy series, and I cant wait to start his first solo Sci-fi novels.
Temeraire – Naomi Novik
Uprooted is possibly one of my all time favourite books. I fell in love with Novik’s writing style, and as soon as I had finished went out and bought the first three books in her Termeraire chronicles…which are still sitting on my shelf! I will definitely be picking these up at some point, if only because it has dragons in it.
The Gilded Wolves – Roshani Chokshi
I flew through Chokshi’s Star Touched Queen series, so when I found out she was writing another book, and read the premise, I couldn’t pre-order it fast enough. I’ve been dying to read this since it was announced, and honestly don’t know why I haven’t picked it up yet, but it’s definitely getting bumped up my TBR.
The Archived – V.E.Schwab
Another of Schwab’s series that I have been dying to read. I was so glad when they re-printed these, because they were super hard to find in the UK before. They sound so magical and I cant wait to start them.
Bellman & Black – Diane Setterfield.
I read Once Upon a River last year and fell in love with Setterfield’s writing. I got swept away in the lush and magical story, and promptly went out and bought the rest of her books. I also have The Thirteenth Tale to read, but the premise of this one really drew me in so I might pick it up first.
