The Year of the Series – Part 1

When I look at the books I am most looking forward to this year, I see a lot of series on that list. At the same time, I find myself – as usual – behind on some series and wanting to start others. Thus, 2012 is looking like the year of the series for me. Authors/Publishers: Stop releasing new series until I catch up, ok?

I thought I’d share all of these books I want to read with you, starting with the books I am anxiously awaiting.

Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready
#3 in the Shade Trilogy
(This is the one I am most excited about although I am still not a fan of the cover redesigns at all.)

Blackout by Mira Grant
#3 in the Newsflesh Trilogy

Endlessly by Kiersten White
#3 in the Paranormalcy Series

Enshadowed by Kelly Creagh
#2 in the Nevermore Series

Insurgent by Veronica Roth
#2 in the Divergent Series

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
#2 in the Delirium Trilogy
(Is this same girl from the Shine cover?)

Next week I’ll share which series I need to catch up on, and the following week I’ll tell you which series I hope to start.

Which books from series are you looking forward to this year?

    Shade, Insurgent, and Pandemonium. Think I’ll be buying those instead of waiting for the library, I am so excited!

    A few of these are new to me, but a lot of them are things that I am waiting on too! I hope that they are released very soon and you get your series fix satisfied!

    Seriously – the girls on Shine & Pandemonium totally look like the same person.

    For the past couple of years I’ve been really trying to get caught up on series that I’ve let languish for “too long”. In some cases, this has even meant going back years and years, to series that I read and loved in childhood but either never finished on purpose (I hated stories ending) or out of disinterest (I hated heroines growing up and becoming boring) or just missed the odd volume because the library didn’t have a copy.

    But I can’t stop starting new series either, so it’s a neverending process. I just picked up the first volumes in series by Patrick Ness and Julie Kagawa and Trenton Lee Stewart (for YA/kidlit) and I am set to start Martin’s Game of Thrones, too. So I’m looking forward to those, myself, but I realize that I’m behind most readers that way!
