If there is one thing that I do very often it is read series. In fantasy a lot of books just end up being series to set up the worlds and the stories. That is just a given. But it does require quite the commitment.
I find it hard to be committed to a series. Not in the last place because not all has been released. And as you can see in the great series read project I have a lot of started series.
Liesbet from Zwartraafje put down some questions recently to answer when it comes to reading series. And of course I got tagged to answer the questions. These questions are translated from Dutch.
1 From which series are you reading or did you read the spin-off series?
2 With which series did the first book not sell you over from the start?
3 Which series hooked you from the start?
The Fifth Season from The Broken Earth trilogy by N.K. Jemisin. So good.
4 Which series do you have completed on your shelves?
Many. Some unread even. Shh. But I’ll point in the direction of The Bartimaeus trilogy which I have completed on my shelves twice.
5 Which series have you read completely?
A bunch but I am going for The Magnus Chase books by Rick Riordan.
6 Which series do you not own completely but would like to?
The Narroway Hunt by Rhiannon Williams. I read the first book from the library and bought the next two. I recently finished the third book and it is such a good middle grade series.
7 Which series do you not want to own completely but still read?
Hmmm. I’d say Kate Daniels. I bought the first 5 or 6 as ebooks and I have no need to own any of the phsyical books.
8 Which series are you not continuing?
Never say never, but from my 2020 reads so far I am unlikely to continue reading the Wingfeather Saga.
9 Which series you havent started yet are you curious about?
Oh gosh there are many. But I am going with The Chronicles of One by Nora Roberts. I have never read any of her fantasy. Only a romance and a few In Death books so I’m curious to see how I will like it.
10 Which series would you like to reread?
The Others by Anne Bishop.
11 Which series did others love and you did not?
Oh hmm. The Reckoners trilogy by Brandon Sanderson.
