Book Series I Need to Start

Posted October 20, 2016 / Book Lists, Features / 12 Comments

header series startSo far this year, I’ve read almost an equal amount of books in series and standalones. I’ve been trying to get better about continuing series that I start, but I don’t think I have as big of an issue with it as some other bloggers seem to. I’m usually good about finishing series… but there are plenty more (published already) series I really want to get started on. Sometimes there’s nothing better than waiting for all of the books to be out and then going on a binge. I plan to hopefully do that with some of these books. (Some I might not wait, but regardless! Worth checking out.) I have this broken down by genre because it makes the most sense. The last “other” category includes retellings and paranormal-like books. I didn’t have enough of those two to make separate categories. Yes, I’m being picky about keeping everything even. Without further ado…

fantasy-startFantasy books are definitely more likely to be in a series, so I tried to really scale back here! There are plenty more I’d like to start at some point, but these are the highlights. I even own quite a few of these, if not all of them…

contemp-to-start I don’t know how I keep putting some of these ones off! I own a few of these as well. There are more companion series for contemporary romance than a straight-up series. I believe three out of these six are companion-like series and the other half are straight-up series with the same characters.

mystery-to-start I’ve been trying to get more into mystery/thriller books and these are at the top of my TBR. Again, I own a few of these too! I really need to get better about reading books from my shelves. In any case, I love two of these authors already and the rest are new to me… so that’s fun!

other-to-startAh yes, the lumped together paranormal and retelling category. Most of these are older books that have been on my TBR for a while, and I’ve heard great things about pretty much all of them. Time to go for it, Lauren!

What do you think? Have you read and loved any
of these that I should bump up my TBR list?

  1. Ooh great list! I loved Splintered and Mara Dyer, but felt meh towards Heist Society. I also really need to start Incarnate, Winner’s Curse, Poison Study, and Finnikin of the Rock. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things for them. I hope you’ll get to read most of them!

  2. I haven’t read any of these either *hides* but I have heard good things about Finnikin of the Rock! Hopefully you enjoy these, if you get to them one day.

  3. I am horrible at finishing books series and tv series. lol I thought you had read The Winner’s Curse! I think you would like it. I am sure you will enjoy Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot as well. So cute and funny with some mystery in there as well.

  4. I’m sure you’ve seen me yell and fangirl about it before, but I LOVE the Newsoul trilogy from Jodi Meadows! It’s just a very interesting concept that doesn’t particularly read like anything I’ve personally encountered before, and I hope you enjoy it when you get around to reading it.

  5. The Winner’s Curse!! I didn’t read that series until this year and thank goodness I waited until all three of them were out. No waiting! I absolutely loved that one and highly recommend it. I read Poison Study and it was just okay. I actually didn’t like the first one enough to finish the series.
