I am a huge fan of series. I’d rather read a series than a standalone, probably because I love to see the characters evolved as well as the world. Over the years I completed tons of series, but there are still some that I started but never finished.
That’s why today I’m presenting you five book series I need to catch up with in 2020!
❥ The Diviners by Libba Bray
I started this series in August of 2019 and completely fell in love with it. It creeped me out and gave me everything I wanted out of a YA historical fiction series. It’s even more than that as it talks about heavy subjects, such as immigration, racism and more. Ever since I read the second and third book, and am now eager to start the fourth and final installment. I would highly recommend anyone to read it: the writing style is spectacular, the cast of characters is incredible and diverse, the story is gripping and Libba Bray is amazing at historical fiction. (Do you see how excited I am to read the last book?)
❥ Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
According to Goodreads I’ve been meaning to read this series ever since 2015… And ever since I read the first book twice in 2018 but never picked up the sequels. I really need to do it soon as I truly loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I thought it was fascinating and oh so atmospheric. I really want to see how the story will evolve, so I hope I’ll pick up the second book soon.
❥ The Trials of Apollo by Rick Riordan
There was a time I was up to date with every Rick Riordan’s books, and now I have a few books left to read because I didn’t pick anything from him in 2019. I read the first two books of this series when they came out and I really need to read the next ones, which I will hopefully soon. I’ll profanely pick them up in the summer, as I always read his books during this season for some reasons.
❥ Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard by Rick Riordan
Again, I read the first book when it came out but never read the next two ones for no real reasons. 2020 is the year I catch up with all the Rick Riordan’s books I forgot to read for the past few years, and I cannot wait to get back to the norse mythology.
❥ Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson
I fell in love with the first book in October of 2019 and have been eager to continue on this series, especially since the last book came out recently. As I’m typing this I am currently reading the second book and will hopefully read the third and finale one a short time after. It’s a brilliant mystery YA series which I would recommend to anyone.
And that’s all!
Do you love series or do you prefer standalones?
