“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit.”First line in The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien
Welcome, readers, to another post in which I’ll list the fantasy series currently on my TBR. These are all the series I haven’t started yet but mean to at some undisclosed date in the future. I’ve excluded series that are continuations of other series I’ve read such as Mistborn: The Alloy Era. Those count as series I haven’t finished, which I’ll probably make separate post about.
I’ll give each series a rating between 1 and 5 to indicate how I intend to prioritize this TBR. The key-word here is “intend”. Here we go!
The Stormlight Archive by Brandon Sanderson
Does anyone hate this series? I haven’t come across anyone who doesn’t have this on their list of favorites so I’m sure I’ll love it. I’ve read Mistborn Era 1 by Sanderson and really enjoyed his writing style. It’s easy to understand and engaging at the same time. According to what I’ve been told, Stormlight is even better than Mistborn so I just need to find the time to read this.
Seven Realms by Cinda Williams Chima
Now this is mainly on my TBR because the booktuber, PeruseProject, can’t stop talking about it. I don’t know that much about what the series is actually about, but I’ve heard that it has some cool characters and some magic. That’s really all I need.
Farseer by Robin Hobb
I just really want to read some Robin Hobb. I’ve heard some mixed things especially about the writing style which I’m guessing isn’t for everyone. I want to give it try though so that I can see for myself what all the fuss is about.
The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan
I’m genuinely terrified of this. It’s such a beloved series by fantasy readers that I don’t know what I’ll do if I hate it. My previous experiences with classic fantasy haven’t been great so I’d actually decided that I didn’t want to read Wheel of Time. But then I heard so much good about it so here we are. It’s such a long series though…
The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson
This is a series in which the premise intrigues me so much that no matter how many negative reviews I see, I still want to read it. From what I’ve heard, the romance should be really interesting, so I just really want to know what it’s about. It’s YA and that means that I am prepared for the possibility that I’m not going to like it too much. It still deserves an attempt in my opinion.
The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell
I want to read some more historical fantasy, and this one sounds pretty cool. Magic and time travel to early 20th-century New York. I’m here for that. Other than that, I don’t know too much about it so I’m excited to see how it turns out.
So that means that the next series I’ll be starting is The Wheel of Time which I’m very much looking forward to. I really want to know if you have read any of these and what you thought about them. Maybe you can convince me to prioritize differently.
Look forward to posts similar to this one where I’ll talk about some more series. Until then, happy reading.
