Series I need to finish Part 3

Part 1 | Part 2

It’s been ages since I’ve done one of these and needless to say, I have a ton of new series that I need to finish. But I am proud to say that¬† I’ve either finished or decided I won’t continue most of the series in the previous posts (Except Daughter of Smoke and bone I’M SORRY! I’ll finish it one day, I promise!). In the interest of not making this post 100000 books long, I’ll limit myself to series that are completed as of right now.


The Dark Artifices by Cassandra Clare

Still need to read the final book. I know. What am I doing? I even own it. I’m just not prepared for it okay. I’m not ready.

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas

Same goes for Kingdom of Ash. I’m just not ready to read this book. I will. Sometime. I promise.

The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I started reading Obsidio and wasn’t enjoying it as much as the previous books. I will probably enjoy it more once I get more into it, but I haven’t been in the mood for it.

The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan

I’ve read the first two books. I don’t like it as much as I liked PJ, but I want to read it so I can get on to the Apollo books. I’m still enjoying them, but I’m just not picking them up very frequently. I still have 3 books left ūüė¶ I also don’t own them and I’ve been trying to not buy books until I get my TBR down a bit. So every time I think about getting the next one, I’m reluctant to because of that.

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

I’ve read the first two books. Just one more to go. I really enjoyed this series, so I need to get on with it! I know that there’re a new trilogy or a continuation and those are not all out yet. But I don’t know if I’m going to read that. I’ll decide once I’ve finished the original trilogy.

The Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence

Only read the first book. I didn’t love it as much as his other series. At this point, I do still want to continue with this series. But I might change my mind. We’ll see.

Dreamblood by N. K. Jemisin

Read the first book and really enjoyed it (though not as much as The Broken Earth). I still want to read the second one though.


Those are all the ones that I could remember. There are probably more. And more still that are ongoing, but I’ve yet to catch up with. But we’ll stop here. Cause I can already feel the anxiety mounting.

Top 10 sequels I read in 2018

It may come as no surprise to you that I am pretty bad about reading sequels. But actually in 2018, I did quite well on that front. So much so that talking about all of the sequels I read would be too much. Therefore, here is a top 10 list of sequels I read last year.


10. Golden Son by Pierce Brown

golden son

I started this series in 2018 and got as far as the second book. I put this series off for years and I shouldn’t have, because I ended up really enjoying it. I listened to both of them on audio and I think they work really well as audiobooks. I enjoyed the narration. This series is so action packed and it keeps you constantly on your toes. But anyway, to talk specifically about this book, I felt like it’s not as good as the first one. I think the pacing for it is a bit off, so while there’s still so much going on, it feels slow at times. But it was still a thoroughly enjoyable book, and I fully intend to continue on with this series.

9. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

scarlet

I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. I read Cinder I think in 2015, so quite some time ago and I really enjoyed it. But then I just never continued with the series. I was a little bit worried going into this that I had outgrown the series. I just found myself reaching less for YA and more for adult books recently. So I was a bit worried. But what do you know, I ended up loving it even more than the first book. I like Scarlet more than I like Cinder and I definitely liked the love interest more than the one in Cinder. It was also a lot more fun I feel like. Cinder followed the main story-line of Cinderella very closely, but this kinda took Little Red Riding Hood in an unexpected direction and I really enjoyed that. I think I actually got around to reviewing this, so if you want to read more of my thoughts, check that out.

8. Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch

red seas under red skies

I started this series in 2017 and immediately picked up the second book. However, it took me quite some time to get through this book and not just because it’s massive. I picked it up at a time when I wasn’t really in the mood for it. Despite that, I still really love this series. I loved some of the new characters we were introduced to. There were pirates and cons and friendship and it’s just such a great series guys. I did feel like this particular installment could have been better paced. There was a bit in the middle where it kind of lagged, but overall, a fantastic book. I’ve also reviewed this one, so check that out for more of my thoughts.

7. The Accidental Further Adventures of the Hundred Year Old Man by Jonas Jonasson

39783178

I was not expecting this sequel. I read the first book a couple of years ago and thought it was hilarious. I had no idea there was a sequel coming out, and indeed the author hadn’t planned a sequel. But I was delighted when I walked into a Waterstones one day and saw it. I obviously picked it up and I was not disappointed. Jonas Jonasson is hilarious, his books are so up my alley. The humour is so dry and dark, but also very self aware. And somehow, his books manage to be both super fun and super informative. I just cannot recommend his books enough.

6. Before They Are Hanged by Joe Abercrombie

902715

I started this series in the first half of the year and it’s become one of my favourite. It’s so dark. Joe Abercrombie has no mercy, pulls no punches, and has created a world and characters that are fascinating and a story so gripping that I just want to know what happens next. All of the characters are super flawed. They’re all pretty bad people, but they’re great. I love them all. I’m currently reading the third book in this series and I just can’t wait to see where it goes. I am officially a Joe Abercrombie fan now.

5. Our Dark Duet by V. E. Schwwab

our dark duet

It’s no secret that I absolutely love Victoria Schwab. This series man. In all fairness, I did prefer the first book to the second one, but this was still a fantastic book. I’m not normally a huge fan of urban fantasy, but the world she’s created in this series is awesome and so unique. I loved this book because it expanded on the world and we got to see different cities where the magic was slightly different. I wish it had been expanded even more. I sincerely hope she writes more in this world, maybe with some of the side characters from this series, because there is so much that could be explored and I am here for it. You can check out my review of the series if you want to know more of my thoughts.

4. The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

slow regard of silent things

This is not so much a sequel as it is a companion novella, but I want to talk about it, because it’s such a wonderful, strange little book. Auri is my little precious bean. I can relate to her probably more than to any other character in this series. I love Kvothe, I think he’s a great character, but Auri is precious. I will fight anyone who throws shade on her. This story spoke to me so much, I may have even cried. I put it off for so long because I didn’t want to not have any more Kingkiller books to read. But I finally read it. And it was everything I wanted it to be.

3. Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence

35530652

Mark Lawrence is another author I discovered in 2018 and is now one of my favourite authors. I’ve read three of his books this past year, but this series is one of the best fantasy series that I’ve read in a long time. It’s about magical assassin nuns. Just that should tell you a lot. But it’s so dark. And the characters are all flawed. I love Nona, the main character, she is so deeply flawed, but also such a loyal character. And I feel like loyalty and friendship are just not explored enough in books. And I live for that. But aside from the characters, whom I love, the world is so cool and unique; the magic system is fascinating. I just adore this series. I love everything about it and I can’t wait for the next book. Just give it to me already. I also audiobooked this series and the audiobooks are brilliant. I love the narrator.

2. Hero of Ages by Brandon Sanderson

6547259

I read both the second and third books in rapid succession and both possibly would have qualified for this list, but I wanted to talk about other series as well. I liked this one more than the second one, so I picked it. This was one of the best finales to a series that I have ever read. Brandon Sanderson is just amazing. I’m 100% here for all of his books after this finale. I was literally in awe at how he pulled all of the little threads together, the foreshadowing alone just blew my mind. I don’t know what I was expecting from the series, but it was not this. It constantly kept me guessing and tricked me and ugh, I cannot explain to you how much I love this series. I have a series review for this so go check that out for more of my thoughts.

1. The Stone Sky by N. K. Jemisin

the stone sky

I had to give number one to this finale because it was perfect. And it tore my heart out and shredded it to little pieces. I cried guys. I still think about this and all the feels it evoked. I am the least maternal person in the world, but I had such mum feels reading this. It moved me. This whole series is phenomenal: the characters, the world, the story, the writing, just everything. I’ve reviewed the series, I have a spoiler free review and a spoilery rave, so just read those if you want to hear all of my thoughts on the series. But this finale broke me. And I’m still not over it. It’s been like 8 months since I read it. Maybe more. Still not over it.

Audiobook Collection

Over the past few months, I’ve been getting into audiobooks and I’ve gathered a little collection of audiobooks. I’ve never included any of them in my book hauls, so I thought I’d make a separate post to share my collection with you. Some of these, I also own physical copies of.


The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins | Ships and Strings and Wedding Rings by Jodi Taylor | The Very First Damned Thing by Jodi Taylor | Roman Holiday by Jodi Taylor | Christmas Present by Jodi Taylor

When a Child is Born by Jodi Taylor | Red Sister by Mark Lawrence | Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence | Golden Son by Pierce Brown | The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson

I Am Watching You by Teresa Driscoll | The Obelisk Gate by N. K. Jemisin | The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris | Life of Pi by Yann Martel | The Power by Naomi Alderman

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman | The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton | Uprooted by Naomi Novik | A Breach of Security by Susan Hill

March 2018 Wrap Up

I honestly cannot believe it’s already April. That’s a quarter of the year gone. When did that happen? Anyway, I had a decent reading month in March, not as good as February, but to be fair some of the books I read this month were huge. I read a total of 8 books.


Golden Son by Pierce Brown

18966819

I’m getting better about continuing with series! I actually audiobooked this one. The audiobooks for this series are pretty good. I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as I liked the first one. I’m not sure if it’s because I listened to it instead of reading it, or because it just wasn’t as good. But it felt to me a lot more disorganised and all over the place than the first book. I felt for the first quarter of it that the characters were just moving about aimlessly. Anyway, I still enjoyed it. I gave it 4/5 stars.

The Arctic Incident: The Graphic Novel by Eoin Colfer

6541716

Again with the continuing of series! I’m proud of myself. Unfortunately, as with Golden Son, I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as its predecessor. I feel like it worked much better as a novel than it did as a graphic novel, which wasn’t really a problem I had with the first book. 4/5 stars

The Body Reader by Anne Frasier

28090850

Another one I listened to on audiobook. I’m not really sure how I came to own this audiobook, but it was in my audible library so… I just gave it a try. I find that thrillers work quite well as audiobooks. I enjoyed this one overall, I did think that the ending was quite predictable and cliche, but it was an entertaining novel nevertheless. 3/5 stars

A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin

20873804

I watched the series this month and that season 7 finale just left me unable to just leave Westeros, so I decided to re-read the books. It’s been maybe 4 years since I originally read them, so it was high time for a re-read. I audiobooked this one because my copy of it is back at my parents’ house. I’m not the biggest fan of either the UK or the US narration of this series, unfortunately. I like the UK one slightly better just because I like the voice and accent of the narrator better, but he cannot pronounce names to save his life. 4/5 stars because of the narration, though my rating for the story is 5 stars.

The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert

38619945

I had hopes for this book. Sadly, I did not like it much. I thought it was a bit boring, the writing was weird and not in a good way, the story was so… pointless that I just stopped caring about a third through the book and there were some other things that I found problematic and I’ll talk about them more when I review the book. 1.5/5 stars.

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur

23513349

Poetry tends to be very hit and miss for me, I either don’t get it and it leaves me cold, or I really love it. This I absolutely loved. It made me cry multiple times, it made me feel empowered and beautiful, full of love and compassion. It’s just beautiful and I recommend it wholeheartedly. 5/5 stars.

Invitation to Poetry by Mihai Brinas

I received an e-copy of this from the author in exchange for a review. This is a self-published poetry book by a Romanian author. I normally don’t read a lot of poetry, but I loved Milk and Honey and when I was contacted about this and saw that the poetry seemed to be in the same style, I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, this really didn’t do it for me for several reasons that I will expand on in my review. I gave it 1.5/5 stars.

The Eternity Code: The Graphic Novel by Eoin COlfer

Unlike the second graphic novel in the series, I really loved this one as much as I loved the novel itself. I’m sad though, cause I think the fourth one is the only graphic novel that is released and I don’t know if there are plans for the others to be released. 5/5 stars

Book Recommendations Based on the Basic Human Emotions

It’s been a long time since I’ve done any book recommendations. A long time ago, I did a couple of posts recommending books based on the seven deadly sins and the seven virtues. Today, I’m going to try to recommend some books based on the basic human emotions. Now, from a psychology point of view, there are several categorisations of basic human emotions and there’s some debate about what makes an emotion basic, but for the purpose of this post, I’ll use the four pairs of opposing human emotions that were defined by some guy called Robert Plutchik at some point. In case any of you have an interest in psychology and were going to yell at me for not being super accurate about it.

Anyway, let’s get on with it.


1. Joy/Sadness

clockwork princess

For this I recommend¬†Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. I know as far as book recommendations go, this isn’t a great one cause everyone knows about it and it’s also the final book in the series, but I couldn’t think of any book that fit the bill any better. This book is a study in joy and sadness and the contrast between them and it’s just perfect for this category.

2. Anger/Fear

The Broken Earth¬†trilogy by N. K. Jemisin. Anger and fear are two of the main driving forces in this story. This is an amazing series, I cannot recommend it enough. It’s hard to describe it and to explain what it’s about because it’s so complex, but it’s a post apocalyptic… fantasy science fiction. You can check out my spoiler free review of it for more details.¬†

3. Trust/Distrust

28696452

This Savage Song¬†by Victoria Schwab. This duology, but the first book in particular, has a very strong element of “Who can be trusted?” and frail alliances of necessity with that whole “they can betray me at any time” tension. Also, it’s just a fantastic series. So, do check it out!

4. Surprise/Anticipation

The¬†Red Rising series by Pierce Brown. I’ve only read the first two books in the series so far, but they are a constant whirlwind of action, plot-twists and surprises at every turn. Reading these books just creates a nervous anticipation of what will go wrong next. It’s one of the best dystopian series that I have read probably since¬†The Hunger Games.

February 2018 Wrap Up

This month, I’ve read 10 books. Which I am well impressed with considering what a year this has been and also that this month is shorter. Admittedly, some of these books are quite short, but still. It’s been a long time since I’ve read this much.


Everless by Sara Holland

35883046

Despite all the buzz it’s been receiving I thought this was a pretty meh book. It wasn’t particularly original or well written or interesting. The time magic thing was cool, but other than that… meh. I did really enjoy it though. I was just in the mood for something easy and quick to read. Mindless entertainment. And this book was well written and just interesting enough that it didn’t bore me out of my mind and it provided just that: mindless entertainment. So this was by no means an un-enjoyable experience. It’s not a bad book, it’s just not a great one either.¬†3/5 stars

The Cruel Prince by Holly Black

26032825

Unlike the previous book, this one 100% deserved the hype in my opinion. It was dark, it was atmospheric and seductive in that opulent and surreal fae way, it was cruel and brutal, it was fast paced, the characters were ruthless and interesting… it was basically anything you could possibly want from a dark fae book. I loved it. Read it in one day, cannot wait for the next one.¬†5/5 stars

The Obelisk Gate & The Stone Sky by N. K. Jemisin

For once, I actually finished a series within 2 months of starting it, which… wow, I’m proud of myself. This series was awesome. I have a full series review, if you want to check that out. I cannot recommend this series enough. If you’re an SFF lover and you haven’t yet picked this series up, just do it. You won’t regret it. 5/5 stars for both books. Also, can I just bring your attention to how beautiful those covers are?

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

red rising

Finally,¬†finally I have read this book. This series has been hyped up and down for as long as I have been part of the online book community and I finally jumped onto the bandwagon. I really liked it. Dystopia is not really my cup of tea anymore these days, but this is a good one. This is worth reading. It was so full of action, it just kept you on your town. You don’t get a break with this book. It’s one thing after another.¬†4.5/5 stars.

The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner

448873

I was disappointed by this book. I had heard some amazing things about it, but it was pretty boring. Most of it was just… people travelling and having irrelevant conversations and eating. Pretty much 2 thirds of the book is taken up by that. the ending, does make up for it somewhat and sets up for a much more interesting story in future books, but not enough to make this book a good one. I ended up giving it¬†3/5 stars, although in all honesty, it’s probably more of a 2/5 star book. But I did really enjoy the main character and the ending, so…

This Savage Song & Our Dark Duet by V. E. Schwab

I finished two series in one month? That’s got to be some kind of record for me. As with every Victoria Schwab book that I’ve ever read, I loved these. I just devoured them and I need more in my life even though they hurt me in my soul. This is such a creative and beautiful and heart-wrenching story and I loved it. Victoria Schwab is the best.¬†5/5 stars for both.

Artemis Fowl: The Graphic Novel by Eoin Colfer

1297242

If you’re new here, I love¬†Artemis Fowl. It’s one of my favourite series and I don’t understand why more people aren’t reading it and talking about it. That needs to happen. Because it’s awesome. And I just found out recently that there’s also a graphic novel version of them that was adapted by Eoin Colfer himself, so it’s time for me to re-read¬†Artemis Fowl. I loved it this time around as well and I really enjoyed seeing the things instead of just reading about them. 5/5 stars.

The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen

13615610

Another sorely under-appreciated series. This one was another re-read for me and I loved it even more than I did the first time. I don’t know why more people aren’t talking about this, because it’s amazing. It’s funny, it’s clever, it’s full of adventure and mystery and snark and I love it. It deserves more recognition than it’s getting.¬†5/5 stars

Top Ten Tuesday – Books I Meant to Read in 2017 but Didn’t Get To

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. And yes, it’s Wednesday, but whatever.


The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

miniaturist

I bought this book early in 2017 and was totally planning to read it. But I just never got to it for some reason. I need to.

The Bat by Jo Nesbo

the bat

Got this about the same time I got¬†The Miniaturist and still haven’t read it. I’ll get to it this year. I hope.

The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson

6547260

I honestly thought I’d have read the whole series by the end of 2017. But I didn’t even get to the second one.

Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor

dreams of gods and monsters

I really thought I’d finish this series, but I just keep not picking it up. I don’t know why cause I love the series. 2018’s the one.

Tower of Dawn by Sarah J. Maas

31450852

I thought I’d read this right away. I even pre-ordered it. But here we are 4 months after its release and I still haven’t read it.

Turtles All the Way Down by John Green

35504431

A new John Green book? I was sure I would read it as soon as I got my hands on it. But nope. It’s been sitting on my shelf for months now.

Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

13206760

I thought I’d have read this book two years ago. But I still haven’t continued with this series and I need to do it already.

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

this savage song

Any Victoria Schwab book, really. How have I only read 2 of her books last year, when I love her so much? I just need to get on with it.

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

red rising

Another one that I have been meaning to read for ages and I keep saying I’ll do it and then I never do. Let’s hope this is the year.

The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss

slow regard of silent things

How have I not read this yet? I love this series so much, it’s one of my favourites. I think it’s just that once I read it, I’ll have no more¬†Kingkiller books to read until the next one comes out.

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

I’ve been meaning to read this for ages! I’ve heard nothing but great things about it.

Verdict: Stays

The Beautiful and the Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I read¬†The Great Gatsby and really liked it, so I’m going to give this one a try.

Verdict: Stays

The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross

Meh, wasn’t terribly interested in this book to begin with and the reviews aren’t great.

Verdict: Goes

Firelight by Sophie Jordan

Added this book cause dragons, but tbh, it sounds pretty stupid even from the synopsis. And the reviews just confirm that.

Verdict: Goes

The Iron King by Julie Kagawa

I’m a bit on the fence about this one. A lot of people really love it, but based on the synopsis, I’m not that sold for some reason. Still, I’ll give it a try.

Verdict: Stays

The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman, Illustrated by Chris Riddell

This sounds amazing.

Verdict: Stays

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge

I really enjoyed¬†Cruel Beauty. A lot of people find it confusing and strange, and it is but that’s what i enjoyed about it. So I’m really curious if this one will be similar.

Vardict: Stays

Grounded: The Adventures of Rapunzel by Megan Morrison

I love retellings, I love Rapunzel and this has such good reviews.

Verdict: Stays

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

I’ve been meaning to read this for ages. I need to get on it already.

Verdict: Stays

Beelzebub’s Letters to His Grandson by G. I. Gurdjieff

Eh, I don’t know. I don’t think so. Maybe some day, but not anytime soon.

Verdict: Goes

 

The Nintendo Book Tag

I was tagged by Ana @ Nerdy Book Worm¬†to do this tag. Thank you Ana! I have actually never owned a Nintendo (I know, my childhood was sad). I actually never had any kind of gaming console. I just played on a PC. But I’m going to do this tag anyway.

1. NES (Nintendo Entertainment System): A classic you want to read

1420

Wow, there are a lot of classics that I want to read. But I think I will go with Hamlet for this one. I have never read Hamlet from start to finish. And I don’t know why. And I want to read it.

2. SNES (Super Nintendo): A sequel you liked more than the first (can be a second book in a series)

acomaf-cover-3

I’m sure I could find a lot of answers for this, but I’m going to go with¬†A Court of Mist and Fury¬†by Sarah J. Maas, because I loved ACOTAR, but I absolutely ADORE ACOMAF.

3. Nintendo 64: A book that revolutionized the way you look at the world

I don’t think I have an answer for this one. There have been many books that have made me think about certain aspects of my life or of the world or that have influenced me in some way or another, but I don’t think I can say I went into reading a book with one worldview and finished it with a different one. I think all books I read have an impact on me somehow, but not a revolutionary one.

4. Gamecube: A popular book that did not go over so well with you

5107

The Catcher in the Rye¬†by J. D. Salinger. I know this is a very controversial book. People generally either love it or hate it. I hated it. I had to read it for school, I was 12 or 13 at the time, and I just remember thinking throughout “Why on earth would any teacher make us read this stupid book?”

5. Wii: A new favorite book

Six of Crows

Six of Crows¬†by Leigh Brdugo is my newest favourite book. I love it, I don’t have enough words to tell you how much I love it. I have an entire review telling you how much I love it and it still does not adequately describe how much I love it.

6. Nintendo Power: Favorite graphic novel series or a series you want to start

the wrath and the dawn

There are so many series I want to start, it’s overwhelming. I’ll go with¬†The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh, because I’ve wanted to read this book for over a year now and I still have’t read it and I don’t know why, but I want to.

7. Super Mario: A character that you’d love to squish like a Goomba

Dolores Umbridge. Or Mare from¬†Glass Sword. It’s a toss.

8. Zelda: A newer fantasy that you consider to be a modern classic

asoiaf

A Song of Ice and Fire by G.R.R. Martin. I don’t think I really need to explain that.

9. Samas-Aran: Favorite sci-fi novel or one you want to read

15839976

Red Rising¬†by Pierce Brown. Another one of those books I’ve been meaning to read for ages and just haven’t gotten to it yet.

10. Pokemon: Book editions that you want to collect

I want the Harry Potter ones that make Hogwarts with their spines. And I also want the original, UK Bloomsbury editions of HP (I have some of them). And I also collect editions of The Lord of the Rings. 

11. Donkey Kong: A book with original characters

darker shade of magic

If only I hadn’t used¬†Six of Crows in another answer. But that’s okay, because¬†A Darker Shade of Magic¬†by V.E. Schwab (review here) also has an amazing cast of characters that I love.

12. Nintendo Fandom: Favorite Nintendo game(s) or game

I don’t really have an answer for this, because as I said, I’ve never owned a Nintendo.
