Happy Tuesday, gals and pals! Two weeks in a row that I’ve done Top 5 Tuesday! 🎉 🎉 Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by the lovely Shanah at the Bionic Bookworm. You can visit here for the upcoming topics!
Today the topic is series I want to start. This topic was kind of hard because I’m generally not drawn to series, so there isn’t very many on my TBR. But, I managed to find five! I also focused on series where I intend to read more than the first book. I have some books that are technically a series, but I don’t necessarily plan to read more than the first book, so I didn’t count those.
Dune by Frank Herbert: this is just a classic that a lot of people talk about. My brother’s high school English teacher gave it to my brother to learn about world-building, and my brother said the world-building was really good. So I’m looking forward to that aspect of it, even if everything else sucks.
The Fifth Season by NK Jemisin: everyone seems to love Jemisin’s writing. Mara Wilson, Matilda herself, said her books were fantastic. So I really want to read this one at some point. I bought my best friend a copy for Christmas, so maybe I’ll steal it.
The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson: honestly, largely the same as Dune. I feel like I’m the only person who hasn’t read this book yet.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss: same as The Final Empire tbh.
The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman: I loved the Golden Compass so much, and will probably read anything Pullman writes. I think this book has mixed reviews, but I’m still excited to read it.
So those are some series I want to start at some point! What about you? Have you read any of these? Which should I read first? Do they get better as they go, or do they get worse? Are there any series you would recommend not reading? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! xx
