I love reading series. But there are so many out there that I just have this bad habit of reading one book in a series and then not continuing, even though I really enjoyed it. Often, if I don’t immediately have the next book available to me, I just start reading something else and then end up not continuing with series that I really enjoy. So here are the series that I want to continue with, but have only read the first book. Since there are so man, I’ve decided to split this into two posts.
The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh
I read this earlier this year and I enjoyed it, although perhaps not as much as I thought I would. Still, I do want to continue with the series, especially that there’s just one other book.
The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
Also read this one earlier this year and I liked it, though not as much as I liked Six of Crows. Which makes sense, since this was written first. But I do want to continue with the series.
The School for Good and Evil by Soman Chainani
This was a fun book. Didn’t enjoy it as much as I would have liked. I think that’s mainly because I read it at the wrong time, so I don want to continue with this series.
Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton
I read this right after it came out, which I think was last year. I really liked it. It had deserts and rebels and it was cool and I don’t know why I didn’t pick the second one up when it came out, but I should.
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman
I actually loved the first book. I have no idea why I haven’t picked up the second one yet considering I read this one a couple years ago, but there you have it.
The Farseer Chronicle by Robin Hobb
I read this one over the summer and even though it was a bit slow, I think the series has great potential and I’m interested in continuing with it.
Cruel Beauty – Rosamund Hodge
This was a strange little book, but I personally really enjoyed it. I think the other one is actually a companion, but I guess it’s still considered a series.
The Broken Earth by N. K. Jemisin
Just finish reading this one, it’s my most recent read, so I’m not super guilty for not continuing with this yet. But it was a really cool book and I look forward to reading the other two.
The Diabolic by S.J. Kincaid
This is a book that I randomly picked up because it was on sale and I ended up really enjoying it. The second book came out this year and I should probably pick it up. Although… I was under the impression that this was a standalone. I think I even mentioned that in my review, and that sort of contributed to me not picking the second book up.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufmann & Jay Kristoff
One of my new favourites this year, I really need to pick the second one up. This series is amazing!
