Popular Series I’m Ashamed I Haven’t Read (Yet) – Pt. 2

Welcome to another round of SHAME where I talk to you about all the popular series I haven’t read (yet) and you get to throw sticks and stones (and whatever else you may find) at me!

I have already done a part 1 of this which you can find here! As you can see, I have read the ACOTAR series so at least I crossed one series off that list! Woo!

This time, I’ve decided to look at series that I actually own and see which ones I still need to read!

Let’s just get right into the series because this will be shameful enough *runs*

My Life In Books tag

Would you look at that – I am actually trying to catch up on all my pending tags?! This is unheard of! 😛

Anyway, I was tagged for the My Life In Books tag by the lovely Joanne @ YA Guitarist! Please make sure to check out her blog and click that follow button! 😉

This tag was originally created by One World, Too Many Pages.


A book for each initial

J – Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

A – Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

C – Caraval by Stephanie Garber

K – The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

I – Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

E – Every Day by David Levithan

(obviously I had to try and get at least ONE of the Shatter Me books in there ;P)


Age – count along your bookshelf

I am 19 years old and the 19th book on my shelf is Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare. Well, this is one of the many books that I’ve owned for ages but haven’t gotten around to reading yet! The Infernal Devices series has been on my radar ever since I read the TMI series! I really do hope I’ll get around to reading this trilogy soon!


A book that represents a destination you would love to
travel to

For this one, I could have chosen pretty much any novel that is set in London! I decided on Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding because I love the movies 😛 It has always been a dream of mine to go to London one day and I just really, really hope I get to go there one day! Maybe even live there?! *sighs*


Favourite colour

Ohhh, I don’t really have a favourite colour if I’m completely honest! I do love the colour of my room though, it’s this very cute, light blue. And generally, I’m very fond of different shades of blue like teal, azure, royal blue etc and I love books with blue covers! One book cover that represents those lovely blues is Gemina (The Illuminae Files #2) by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff.


Fondest Memories of

I could have chosen a lot of books for this one because there’s so many books that I read in different situations that I think back to very fondly 😛 I decided on The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer. I used to be absolute trash for the Twilight series (I think most of us were) and this is an Eclipse novella!

I think back to it very fondly because I just remember having a sleepover with my friend and she had only just gotten this book and I was desperate to read it!  I brought one of my books to the sleepover and she gave me this one and we LITERALLY sat next to each other all night long, not speaking a word, just reading. Reading until it was dawn and I finished the entire book in that one sitting! And my friend did as well and we just looked at each other… and went to sleep lol. I just love thinking back to that night like we literally exchanged books, sat next to each other in silence and read :’) It was lovely ❤


Most difficult to read

To be honest, I found it so difficult to read Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I just had a hard time with the writing and a lot of the words that I didn’t understand… and I forced myself through it at times. I did enjoy the story, especially after listening to the audiobook, but I just had difficulties reading it.


Which book in your TBR pile will you get the most satisfaction/biggest sense of accomplishment from?

Oh, this is easy! That will definitely be Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I know I’ve said this a lot already but Six of Crows has been on my TBR list ever since it got released. (And you’re probably thinking GOD JACKIE WHEN WILL YOU FINALLY STOP TALKING ABOUT READING IT AND ACTUALLY START READING IT?!?!?!?! LOL) I’ve absolutely adored the Grisha trilogy and I am so excited to finally read Six of Crows and Crooked Kingdom and get to know the characters my children that everyone keeps talking about! 🙂

Popular Series I’m Ashamed I Haven’t Read (Yet)

As you may or may not be able to tell by the title of this post, I will be talking about (popular) book series that I haven’t read yet! And yes, I am quite ashamed of it! I hereby give you permission to throw sticks and tomatoes at me! 😀

Keep the image of Cersei’s Walk of Shame in mind because that’s what I will be thinking of with every series I’m going to mention! *hides*

*click on the book covers to be directed to the Goodreads page*

The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare:

  

I KNOW, I KNOW! Shame on me. This has been on my TBR for the longest time, probably since I finished City of Heavenly Fire (which was AGES ago!!!) so you have every right to throw things at me 😀

 

A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy by Sarah J. Maas:

ACOTAR ACOMAF ACOWAR

This is another series that I’ve been meaning to read for sooo long BUT GUESS WHAT?! I got ACOTAR last week and A Court of Mist and Fury is on its way!!! I also pre-ordered A Court of Wings and Ruin SOOOOOO this will be read very soon!!!!!!!!

 

The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater:

   

Ready to disown me yet? I honestly have no good explanation as to why I haven’t read this one yet. I know that it’s great and amazing and everbody loves it and I WILL get to it soon. Soon-ish. Ha!

 

Shades of Magic trilogy by V.E. Schwab:

ADSOM  

I haven’t really heard of this series until the beginning of 2017 (I believe?) so it hasn’t been on my TBR for too long! I’ll try to get around to it eventually but for now this will sit on my TBR for a while because I want to tackle the books that have been on it for a couple years first! :’)

 

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon:

The Bone Season  

First off, how pretty are these new covers? ❤ On the one hand, I am loving the cover change but on the other hand….. I already have two mismatched editions of The Bone Season and The Mime Order and once I’ll buy The Song Rising, I’ll have ANOTHER edition = 3 different editions of the same series. That BUGS ME TO NO END!!!!! I might have to buy the new editions of the first two books just so I have a matching set 😥 Shame on you, Samantha Shannon for making me waste more money on books!!!!!! 😀 Anyway, back to the point! I’ve put The Bone Season on my April TBR but life is getting very busy right now and I have a feeling that I won’t be able to read this series this month!

 

Quick side note: Six of Crows would have been on this list too BUT I HAVE JUST STARTED READING IT AND I’M ONLY ON CHAPTER 3 AND IT’S SOOOO GOOD HELP ME!!!!!!! I am not ready for it like PHYSICALLY and EMOTIONALLY not ready to read it! I think I’ll have to take a break because I NEED TIME to read this book and fully immerse myself in it and the beautiful characters. I think I’ll just read ACOTAR first because I can’t deal with all the feels that SOC is giving me right now 😀

So, that’s it for the popular series I’m ashamed I haven’t read yet! To be honest with you guys, I could make a part 2 out of this because there’s a lot more series that I haven’t read yet! But I feel like 5 was enough for today 😀

As always, thanks for reading!

Have you read any of these series? (You probably have, why am I even asking.) Which popular series have you not read yet? And do you feel as ashamed as I do? Which of the series I mentioned should I read first??? Let’s chat in the comments!
