Hi friends! Today, I’m talking about series I want to start, because I have a legendary streak with starting series*. But hopefully this topic will inspire me to get it together! Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the lovely Shanah @ Bionic Bookworm.
*and i mean that in a bad way
I have heard only the best things about this series. Like, I want to be in on the hype! This is definitely my fault because I’ve had the party invitation for like 2 years now and I haven’t done anything about it. This is apparently a dark* fantasy and there’s a warrior girl and a WARRIOR SCHOOL. School settings with magic/superpowers/warrior-stuff is one of my favorite tropes ever.
*by dark, i mean please visit the author’s website or check reviews for trigger warnings, because there’s a lot
Okay, so this duology seems to be rather polarizing. Or at least the first book is, because I can’t remember if the second book’s out yet*. But this apparently is a historical fantasy? With six pretty cool characters? And a small heist aspect, and some pretty cool clues. I want to definitely read the first book soon!
*i am the all-knowing book fairy. fear me.
This a series currently being translated from French, so the fourth hasn’t been translated yet. I actually forgot what this is about…but it’s really popular in France? And I’ve made it a goal to read more translated books* this year! And finally, I read an amazing review of A Winter’s Promise from Jane @ Blogger Books and that was it. I was done for. This series had piled itself onto my TBR.
*that’s a goal i’m totally failing by the way
I CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT THIS MANGA IS ABOUT THIS IS WHY I’M BASICALLY DORY. Actually, I know that this manga involves time travel and a mystery. That’s genuinely all I need to know to want to read this series, and I’m really excited to go in mostly blind!
This is apparently one of the most beautifully written fantasy trilogies ever. Honestly, I’m ridiculously excited to read it? Because it handles a frost demon and girl in the midst of wintery Russia. THE POTENTIAL FOR ATMOSPHERE. Also um…I keep saying I’m going to read this series but I never do because I don’t own it sadly. But once the library reopens, I have grand plans for this series!
So that’s it! In hindsight, these are all fantasy series. So that means they’ll be rather long. Well, I want to do my best to read these! Tell me:
What series do you most want to start? Have you read any of these?
