How’re all the lovely people doing these days? Oscillating between feeling blessed and wanting to tear your hair out? Because that’s me since the last two months. I haven’t been up to date with my blogging over the last week I think and I apologize for that. To make up, here’s a sort of discussion-worthy post since I know for sure that all of you will have tons of recommendations from your own binge-worthy book series list, and I’d love to hear about them from your posts or in the comments below! 🙂
These are the series I recently binge read and really enjoyed. I haven’t included older series that I had read like ten/twenty years back like Narnia, Nancy Drew, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, etc in this list for that reason. Also, they are in no particular order, and there will be more such posts as and when I finish the other series I’m currently in the beginning or middle of 🙂
The Shades of Magic Trilogy by V.E. Schwab
Oh!! This series has been like a super favorite series of mine and I can’t recommend it highly enough. If for nothing else, then pick it up for a heroine you will absolutely fall in love with. Delilah Bard – you rock girl!
All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness
Read this for the brilliant way the author has linked real history and historic figures to this fictional tale of witches, vampires and warvewolves. This is not vampire diaries or the twilight and although the romance was not up to my liking, the amount of research the author has put in and the flow of the plot, made this series a binge read for me.
Six of Crows Duology by Leigh Bardugo
I don’t have words for how much I have loved this duology. I have not been able to forget about the characters and it has been a year I read these two books! The plot, the heist, the characters and their chemistry, ohhh….this one is for all kinds of readers I think 🙂
Now, for some honorable mentions, since I did binge read all of these book series too, but they’re not completely on the super duper top book series list of mine yet. But I binge read them, so that means they were entertaining enough 🙂
Grisha Trilogy/Shadow and Bone Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
This series might have made it to the top list had I read it before I read Six of Crows. But sorry Leigh Bardugo, you have just outdone yourself with the SoC books, so I couldn’t find the same amount of love for the Shadow and Bone trilogy, although, it was an exceptional series in itself. I mean, the Darkling as the villain – epic.
The Hazel Wood Duology by Melissa Albert
I had high hopes from the overall series, since I was absolutely in love with the first book. But the second book – The Night Country, left me a slightly disappointed. So binge worthy reads, but the sequel might not be as great as the first one.
Astra Steadfast trilogy by MC Frank
A simple, fast paced re-imagination of a futuristic world where books and human interaction is forbidden. Inspired by Fahrenheit 451. I really enjoyed this series and the re-imagination of Ray Bradbury’s concept and the slow burn romance between the lead pair 🙂
Roxanne Fosch Files Trilogy by Jina S Bazzar
Extremely detailed world building. A series which mixes science fiction with fantasy. A coming of age story of a girl pitted against all odds. A binge worthy series for fans of Jessica Jones 🙂
Questions to you guys 🙂
Have you read any of these? I’m sure you have..heh heh..
Hit me up with some duologies/trilogies that I can read and feature in my next post! 🙂 😉
