Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week is a freebie, and I was originally going to do something wintry, but decided I’d kill two birds with one stone by using this as an opportunity to tackle one of my end-of-year posts: series I want to read in 2019!
Series to Start:
1. The Dark Artifices — Cassandra Clare
I know, everyone else is finishing this trilogy while I’m getting prepared to begin it. ?
2. Monsters of Verity — Victoria Schwab
I’m definitely ready to finally pick up Victoria’s YA work, as I’ve only read her adult and MG titles so far!
3. Arc of a Scythe — Neal Shusterman
I definitely want to start this series in 2019, but I’m probably not going to read book 2 until it draws near to book 3’s release date since I hear book 2 has such an intense cliffhanger!
4. Strange the Dreamer — Laini Taylor
As many of you know, I’ve actually begun the first book before and hit a horrible fantasy slump, but I am REALLY excited to restart it soon and read the duology.
5. The Lotus Wars — Jay Kristoff
I’ll be reading Godsgrave soon and DEV1AT3 when it comes out (unless the ARC gods bless me again), but otherwise, I’m pretty sure I’ll need some fun Kristoff reading to work on while I wait for Darkdawn!
Series to Finish:
6. The Lunar Chronicles — Marissa Meyer
I’ve read the first 3 novels and Fairest, so in 2019, I want to reread Cress and finally pick up Winter as well as finishing the short stories!
7. The Mortal Instruments — Cassandra Clare
I binged the TMI and TID series like hell this year and read 8 CC books in 9 months, I think? By the time I reached CoHF, I was edging on burnout in the world, so I decided to set it aside and give myself a break for a couple of months before picking up CoHF and then moving on to the rest of the Shadowhunters books in 2019!
8. Mara Dyer — Michelle Hodkin
Reg and I had a lot of fun buddy reading the first book over the summer, and we keep saying we’re going to continue the trilogy together, so I’m hoping she’ll be game to buddy read books 2 and 3 with me in 2019!
9. The Nevernight Chronicle — Jay Kristoff
I’ve been putting off Godsgrave for waaaay too long because of the epic cliffhanger everyone always talks about, but I plan on reading it early in 2019 and then joining the masses in the agonizing wait for Darkdawn’s release.
10. Throne of Glass — Sarah J. Maas
This is definitely my first priority from this entire list: finally reading Kingdom of Ash! I have adored this series so much but I haven’t read the finale yet because I just haven’t been ready to say goodbye, so I finally decided a few days ago to set KoA aside until January and to give myself some time to prepare for the end. ♥
