There are so many series that I want to start this year and I feel like I’m missing out as I keep hearing good things about all of these books! I’ve been really slacking on my reading and for once I want to reach my Goodreads goal, so hopefully by making a list of series I want to start will give me a clear indication of what to read! Most of these books I’ve either had in my Amazon basket for a while or are books I keep seeing across the book blogging community. I’m always looking for a new book series so if you’ve got any recommendations then please let me know in the comments!
And I Darken by Kristen White – I’ve been meaning to read this series for a while now as I’m a real sucker for a complex and powerful fantasy read! From reading the synopsis I already know that this is going to be an intense and memorable read which is perfect as I’m always looking for some more fantasy worlds to explore!
The Cruel Prince by Holly Black – After putting this on my Christmas Book Haul I’ve heard nothing but praise for this book and I’m beyond excited to finally start reading this!
Nevernight by Jay Kristoff – I have to thank Piera over on Booktube for recommending this series to me! She’s constantly going on about these books and its characters so I finally gave the synopsis a read and now I’m fully invested! I’ve already got the ebook on my phone and read the first couple of pages all of which I’ve really enjoyed so I look forward to reading this very soon!
The Shades of Magic Trilogy by V.E. Schwab – Years ago I tried to read The Archived by V.E Schwab and I just didn’t click with the writing or the story however I really want to give her another go with this series! Not only are these covers stunning but its storyline sounds something that I know I’m going to fall in love with! Plus I keep hearing so many amazing things about these books and I want to get involved.
His Fair Assassin Trilogy by Robin Lafevers – This series isn’t particularly high on my TBR list after hearing a lot of mixed reviews but nevertheless I’m really intrigued by the whole concept and premise of this series! The first book in the series follows Ismae who after escaping an arranged marriage is trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. That sounds pretty kickass, doesn’t it?
The Arc of the Scythe by Neal Shusterman – This is another book that I keep seeing around and hearing good things about so I might as well find out for myself what all the hype is about. The world in which the book is set sounds fascinating and I look forward to exploring it more soon.
The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – This book has been sitting in my Amazon basket for such a long time and I’ve only ever heard good things! I really love all things sci-fi but I haven’t read anything from that genre in a while, so maybe its time to take a break from all my fantasy worlds and dive into something different. The books unique format is also something that I really intrigued by!
The Poppy War by R.F Kuang – I’ve heard a lot of people call this ‘the best fantasy read of 2018’ so its only right that I see what all the hype is about! I’m already getting serious Ember in the Ashes vibes from the synopsis as it involves a military school and a rich world based on Chinese history. I’m terrible at reading books that focus on different cultures so this year I want to broaden my reading with more world literature.

The Poppy War sounds so amazing, I’ve heard the best things about that book 😍👏🏻
I have SO many series to start and finish up in 2019 ❤️
Scythe is really good, I read it last year and it was one of my favourite books of 2018. I’m really excited to read Thunderhead, I’m not sure if there’s going to be more than two books but Shusterman’s writing is really good so I totally wouldn’t mind!
Illuminae Files have been on my TBR since forever, I’m not a big fan of Sci-Fi so I’m kinda scared that it won’t live up to the hype. Definitely planning on reading The Poppy War and some of Schwab’s work this year.
Good luck with all these series and I hope you like them all xx
