I LOVE series books. In 2013, I have big plans to devour several series sets. Some of them I’ve read before and am looking to refresh myself with their awesomeness. Others are totally new to me. I’ve always been a big fan of series stories–ever since I was a kid. Some of my favorite series are:
>>The Sevenwaters series by Juliet Marillier
>> The Old Kingdom (or Abhorsen) series by Garth Nix
>> The Harry Potter Books by J.K. Rowling
>> The Emperor’s Edge series by Lindsay Buroker
>> The Ender Series by Orson Scott Card
>> The Bean Saga by Orson Scott Card
>> The Mark of the Lion Trilogy by Francine Rivers
>> The Discworld Novels by Terry Pratchett
>> The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
>> The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
As you can tell, I’m a big fan of stories that span across many, many books. This year, I’m planning to read the following series:
A Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin
A Game of Thrones
A Clash of Kings
A Storm of Swords
A Feast for Crows
A Dance With Dragons
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games
The Old Kingdom (Abhorsen) Trilogy by Garth Nix
These are the full series that I plan on reading either for the first time, or I’m going to read the entire series anew (as is the case with the Abhorsen Trilogy). I have several series that I’ll be finishing up this year (without rereading all the previous books, unless I just want to):
>> The Sevenwaters Series – I’ll finish it up with Flame of Sevenwaters (I got it for Christmas!)
>> The Emperor’s Edge Series – I’ll finish this up with #6 when it comes out, along with Beneath the Surface, Encypted,Enigma, and any other novels or novellas Ms. Buroker chooses to put out this year.
>> The Unicorn Chronicles by Bruce Coville — I’ll finish this up with The Last Hunt and I might end up rereading all the others since they’re quick and awesome (and it’s been a while since I read the previous three).
If I choose to read any other series books, I’ll do a new post at that time! For now, these are certainly enough to keep me busy. I’m particularly excited about rereading the Abhorsen Trilogy. I ADORED those books when I was younger and I cannot wait to read them for the THIRD time!
Have you ever read any of these books? If so, what did you think? What series books are you looking forward to reading this year? I’d love to hear!
