I’ve recently discovered that I have a problem…with book series. I keep track of all the books I’ve read on Goodreads, and thank goodness Goodreads exists, because I have read a lot of books. I’ve been able to categorize all the books I’ve read, and many of them fall into my “Series” shelf. So one day I decided to go through that shelf and see how many I had actually finished. I have a total of over 165 series and out of ALL those, I’ve finished a measly 34. That’s only 20%!
Now maybe some of you are sitting there reading and thinking “165?! That’s a lot!” or maybe “20% is still a decent amount!” (these are things I like to hope people are thinking). But my actual problem is which one to finish first. I’ve decided that I am going to complete all 165 in progress, but I’d appreciate some advice on where to start. So here are my top 3 series that I’m currently leaning toward.
The first is the Steampunk Chronicles by Kady Cross. It’s YA with a historical aspect, it takes place in the 1800s, and it features a powerful female lead with a little bit of sci-fi/fantasy mixed in.
The second is the Lumikki Andersson series by Salla Simukka. This series is also known as the “Snow White Trilogy”; it’s a rewriting of the Snow White tale, but with the mob, mystery and murder. It’s also been translated from Finnish.
So which of these do you think I should finish up first? Are there any series you LOVE and think I should add to my list? Leave a comment below.
