It’s October, which means that 2017 is less than two months away! (How did that time go by so quickly?) And before the year ends and we enter into 2017, I want to have finished these three amazing series:
The Lunar Chronicles: Cress and Winter by Marissa Meyer
I have fallen absolutely in love with this wonderful series that Marissa Meyer has written. And not only because this series is a beautiful example of a fairy-tale retelling done right. This series has an awesome cast of characters that I have fallen in love with during the first two books and I cannot wait to read about them in the following books as well as meet a couple of new characters in the process. I only have two more books to read (I’m not including the other companion books, at this stage anyway), but the last book is HUGE! Though, whilst a little intimidating in size (okay, perhaps very intimidating in size, haha), I am still very excited to get to the end of this series.
The Raven Cycle: Blue Lily, Lily Blue and The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
This year, Maggie Stiefvater quickly became one of my all time favourite authors. No joke. The Raven Cycle is such a fantastic series, with incredible characters and a new, different and interesting storyline. This series captured me pretty much instantly and now I only have two books left in the series. I will definitely be reading them soon, because I cannot leave this series unfinished. I cannot wait to find out the fates of the beautiful characters that Stiefvater has created — but at the same time I don’t want to finish reading it because then it’ll be over for good. *cries uncontrollably*
Snow Like Ashes: Ice Like Fire and Frost Like Night by Sara Raash
I’ve only read the first one in this trilogy, but I really, really enjoyed it. I have the next two books on my shelf, but have yet to read them — so this trilogy is definitely a must-read before the end of the year. I cannot wait to go back to this world and learn more about it, as well as watch as the characters continue to develop and their relationships with one another grow. I don’t really know why I haven’t finished this series yet. Maybe because of all the new releases lately? Haha. However, I am determined to finish this by 2017. Because how could you say “no” to these beautiful covers? I seriously can’t take my eyes off them — they are just so damn gorgeous!
