2016 is a whole new year, which bring us to whole new possibilities—and in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post, I’ve decided to list the series I have decided to read over the course of 2016! This week’s topic from The Broke and the Bookish is more open-ended, as long as they are resolutions we have for 2016—which is convenient because I planned on doing something like this anyway. 🙂
1. Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
As far as I know this series isn’t complete yet (2 more books to be published, I believe) so the smartest thing to do I suppose would be to wait for all the books to be released… but who cares about being smart when you have fantasy novels, right? This series seems like it’s something that’ll be right up my alley, and all the hype for it has me crossing my fingers it’s as good as it sounds! AND THE COVERS THOUGH.
2. Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Aside from the fact that this series seems to be everywhere (then again, almost every hyped book is), the final book to this series will be releasing sometime in 2016, which means it’s the perfect time for me to binge-read the series! I honestly can’t wait.
3. Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Another fantasy series?, you’re asking. Why yes, another fantasy series is on the list, of course because a) it’s one of the most common kinds of series (I mean, have you ever seen tons of contemporary series?) and also b) because I really want to read more fantasy novels in 2016 since, well, fantasy is fantastic. LOL, just had to do that. Sorry.
But apart from me completely rambling and being a total goof, the Fire and Thorns series by Rae Carson seems super good, and definitely not lacking in the gorgeous cover department either! JUST LOOK AT THEM. *Drool* They’re majestical. (Yes, that is now a word.)
4. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
Not quite sure what genre this is… paranormal romance or fantasy, I suppose. This series has been on my TBR for who know how long, and with Susan Dennard’s newest upcoming release of Truthwitch, I’m eager to get a taste of what her writing is like (although I’d imagine her writing might’ve changed since the time she wrote Something Strange and Deadly).
5. Splintered by A.G. Howard
Another TBR-oldie, this Alice in Wonderland retelling had my interest piqued for quite some time and I have my fingers crossed that I’ll be able to get around to reading it and hopefully enjoying it as well! 😀
6. Seven Realms by Cinda Williams Chima
Not sure if all of you have heard of this one (but my money’s on that you have) but the Severn Realms series is another popular one that I’m dying to read! There’s 4 books in this series, and they’re all released—so now it’s just a matter of getting a copy of the books! (And I know I can’t be the only one who loves the covers..!)
7. Dust Lands by Moira Young
The first book in this series, Blood Red Road has been on my TBR since FOREVER. And I know I’m basically saying that with every book and/or series on this list, but it’s true. Plus I’ve been hearing all sorts of good things from this one—and I suppose a dystopian break would be helpful amidst all the fantasy, yes?
8. The Elemental Trilogy by Sherry Thomas
This series was added to my TBR not too long ago, although maybe I’m wrong, and yes, I have to admit, the covers are a big part of why I’m drawn to this series. I mean, come on! You’d have to be blind to not see the amazing-ness of it. But other than that, I really like the sound of the magic in this one; color me intrigued!
9. Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
Now, I haven’t read many books with dragons—but I really want to (DRAGONSSSS <3)—so I’m definitely adding the Seraphina duo-logy to my 2016 list! I’ve heard some mixed opinions about it, but I’m withholding judgement until I read it, which hopefully will be soon. 🙂
10. The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson
And last but not least, I plan to read The Remnant Chronicles, a series whose third and final book will be published in August 2016. I’ll probably start this series in the summer because of this—and I can’t wait! It seems amazing.
So there we have it! It might be a little ambitious (okay, fine, A LOT ambitious) but at least it’s a goal, right? I really hope I’m able to get to some, if not all, of these series by the end of 2016. Wish me luck! 😛 (I’ll need it!)
What resolutions do you have for 2016? Have you read any of these series? What did you think of them? Which ones are on your TBR? (Who knows, maybe we can buddy-read it!) Let me know whatever thoughts you may have below; hugs!
